You may sense a theme in recent polls.

Edited to add: Early days yet on this poll, but given the song's ubiquitousness in local baby-oriented singalongs around here, I thought it was a standard feature of English childhood which C (who's from Lancs.) had just happened to miss out on. I'm glad I asked since it may be either fairly recent or relatively local. I await further data.
