I've seen the first stanza before, but this is the first time I've seen the second and third stanzas!

I'd never heard this before -- it's one of those things that sounds like it could well be true -- but it could also be an "urban myth" type thing (anyone can say "this was previously reported in the newspaper")...

Just to throw a wrench (or spanner)in the works, there is some controversy about the Hokey Pokey: http://cantuar.blogspot.com/2008/12/hokey-pokey-is-anti-catholic.html "It was devised by Puritans to mock the priest's seemingly strange movements at the Holy Mass and the words of consecration: Hoc est enim corpus meum." Something I had been unaware of.

And on a slightly different note, a couple years ago I heard a comedian do a version of the Hokey Pokey as the Aussie band AC/DC. http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=endscreen&v=6izVyGgBC44&NR=1

How about this version of "twinkle twinkle little star"? Scintillate, scintillate, globule vivific, Fain would I fathom thy nature specific, Loftily poised in the ether capacious, Strongly resembling a gem carbonaceous! When torrid Phoebus removeth his presence, Ceasing to lamp us with fierce incandescense, Then you illumine the regions supernal, Scintillate, scintillate semper nocturnal. The traveller on lustreless perigrination, Gratefully hails your minute coruscation, He could not determine his journey’s direction, But for your bright scintillitating protection

Well, trading insults with you, obviously, thou qualling idle-headed miscreant!

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
