Blue Bells, Cockle Shells in the Botanics

Blue-bells and Cockle-shells in the National Botanical Gardens today, remind me of the old skipping rhyme:

Blue bells, Cockle shells, 
 Eever, Ivor, Over;
As I was in the Kitchen,
Doing a bit of Stitchin',
In walked the Boogie Man,
and I walked out.
 Or was that second line: Eether, Eyether, Other?
