the one about the children's song about a scarecrow

A few days ago Nuora asked me if I knew a children's song about a scarecrow. They'd sung it in toddler group and she didn't know it. I scratched my head for a few moments and then began to sing, 'I'm a dingle dangle scarecrow with a flippy floppy hat, I can shake my arms like this, I can shake my legs like that.'

Since then I can't get the song out of my head. Although it is alternating with 'I'm a little teapot short and stout,' complete with actions.

Because I would hate you to miss out on this treat here are the proper versions for your delectation.
