What's the Wordy Rappinghood chant

What's the little ditty sung in the background of Tom Tom Club's "Wordy Rappinghood"?

It's pretty similar to "A-Ram-Sam-Sam," a song that I associate with the Girl Scouts, but it's a little different. Is it just a variation with which I am not familiar?

Some of the words sound like they're from She'll Be Coming 'Round The Mountain.

No idea. But you could try posting your question on the Tom Tom Club forum.

LOL. You sent me into the closet to dig through my box of old cassette tapes. Now TTC is gonna make me happy for the next few days. Thanks.

Oh, I have no idea on your question.

This question is going to close soon so -
The TTC forum is cool because Tina and Chris actually participate.
I joined and posted the question but didn't get an answer from Tina or Chris. The most comprehensible answer was this (from a Karen Buhl):
I was at a concert and talked to Chris before the show
I said I couldn't figure out the words, and he said to just fake it and it would work
So I did!
Had a wonderful talk with them after the show
Tina is one of the sexiest girls in the world
I heard more than one guy in the audience say so
