This sounds pretty close to something my dad and his brother did in the '30s -'60s. They entertained in bars in Pennsylvania Dutch country. My Uncle Clyde played the harmonica and my dad played spoons and danced soft shoe. Their words make more sense:

There was a frog in our well
Gonna' sing some kissey kissey kimeo
he had a cold and he couldn't smell
Gonna' sing some kissey kissey kimeo

He moe hi moe dare I owe
Heem a hyme a rump sucka sog bug
A polly wolly link
And a sing some kissey kissey kimeo

We tied him to a hic-o-ry stump
He reared and he roared, but he couldn't make a jump

Go-o-o-o-oodbye white folk, I'm a goin' away
I'll sing for you some other day.
