In fact the rhyme doesn't appear in print until 1881, six centuries too late. It is stretching credibility to think that it lasted for that length of time in common playground use but was never recorded.More likely to have originated during the 19th century ban on dancing in the UK and USA, and that the words are mostly playful nonesense.
