Another vote for "Incy wincy spider" here. I'm not sure how you're distinguishing between "song" and "nursery rhyme", to be honest, but I'd class it as nursery rhyme. I'm sure it was regularly sung on Listen With Mother when I was a child and we definitely sang it at school -- with tune and actions.

Nursery rhymes are a subset of songs so a tick for nursery rhyme is a tick for both.
