War Chant

Season's Greetings to all.
When I arrived in 1934, we had a war chant which was shouted enthusiastically in support of PSS entrants in competitions.
Emphasis was on the parts in bold type and it went :-
EE  Nicka DEEna  DEEna DEEna
EE  Nicka DEEna  DINEa DOE
EE  Nicka DEEna DEEna DEEna
PULL UP YOUR SOCKS THE PETERS.
 
But during my time, Doc Freeman banned it, claming that it was based on an Australian chant and totally unsuited to the status of the school !!!!
