What is in the DT is a different set of words than what I have, and the notes to the file say that it is a forerunner to the blackface song Kemo,Kimo. Here are the words I have, and the tune. I am sure there a LOTS more.

KEMO KIMO

There was a frog, lived in a spring,
Sing, song kitty catch a kimee-o.
He could dance and he could sing,
Sing, song, kitty catch a kimee-o.
Chorus:

Kee mo, kimo, day-ro dime,
Hey, ho, subble bubble, sip so,
Periwinkle soap fat,
Pennywinkle nip cat,
Kitty catch a ki mee-o.

O, what you gonna do when the rain don't fall?
Sing, song, kitty catch a kimee-o,
Crops grow small instead of tall,
Sing, song kitty catch a kimee-o
