It's also akin to 'Good Luck to the Barleymow' and a host of others. I've heard tell of songs like it in almost every known culture, used as a memory game by children, and apparently resurrected as a drinking game. I don't think there's a verifiable way to link any particular nationality or race to this TYPE of song... but for the particular version, the search continues...
