Does Anyone Know a Norwegian Song/Rhyme called “Ree Dee Dunkin”?

Renee Dickens wrote to us asking for help with a childhood song:

“My grandmother used to sing a Norwegian song or rhyme she called ‘Ree Dee Dunkin’. No one in our family can find anything about it. It would be really great to have the actual song with all the words. Your help would be greatly appreciated.”

Is anyone familiar with this piece? If so, please share anything you know about it in the comments below.

Thanks in advance!

    I am looking for a similar song. It went:
    Ria, ria, runka,
    Fiddlers hoose,
    A varking, a yaming,
    A leeta, kotta, poose!

    That is what it sounded like!
