I know it as 'incy wincy spider', and it has a tune.

Whereas I know it as Incy Wincy, but it's definitely a nursery rhyme to me. I suppose I have always known that there was a tune - but that's like knowing there's a film of a favourite book. You don't have to go and see it; you've already got the original, the one that matters.

I was about to say 'Is this the same as Incy Wincy Spider'? In which case, I don't know a tune, but I do know all the actions.

Me too. A sung and performed (lots of lovely actions!) nursery rhyme.
