My late grandmother (Born West Yorkshire in 1897) used to sing a version of this regularly, and she included "K-K-K-Katie, swallowed a tatey", "tatey" being local dialect for potato.

My family used to sing something similar to 'swallowed a platey' we sang
'kkk katie swallowed a halpenny, two penneth of chips, a fish and half a loaf
the night before that she swallowed the doormat and now she's trying to swallow the knob of the kitchen door'
maybe there are different versions!

I remember :
K-k-k-Katie, she swallowed a halfpenny and now she's trying to swallow the key to the K-k-k-kitchen door.
When the m-m-m-moon shines over the cowshed I'll be waiting at the k-k-k-kitchen door.
