celticblues5 Lyr Req: Jean Redpath's street song medley (7) RE: Lyr Req: Jean Redpath's street song medley 14 Sep 04

Hi, Q -

Thanks for your contribution. When I saw that the I'll Tell Ma version mentioned above included the bit about the dinner, I was wondering if the Tell Me Ma chorus might not be one of those floating ones that pop up here and there, since the version I'm most familiar with (the one the Rankins and so many others do) DOESN'T have the dinner bit.

Interesting to see your 1886 rhyme, and speculate whether it was the basis for the old standard "I like coffee, I like tea, I like the java jive and it likes me...."
