Best answer: Neko no ko - Takio Ito
Akuma no ko - Samuel Kim
Ue o muite aru kō - by Issa (DA PUMP)/Dance for Hope Project (you're going to say wait, that's "Sukiyaki", but that was a Japanese word chosen at random to replace the actual name of the song for international audiences or something) (this is a random lockdown-era cover of it that I had in a playlist)

Mokoma is an excellent Finnish metal band but unfortunately I'm not aware of any tracks by them that fit

The video game LocoRoco is about cute little blobs (LocoRocos) that you maneuver through various obstacles and sometimes they sing songs with nonsense word lyrics.
