Subject: RE: Kemo Kimo info
How did we get this far in the discussion without mentioning Burl Ives' recording of this song? (Or did I miss it?) I don't remember the whole thing but will give a phonetic try on the chorus:

Keemo, Kimo, dear-o-eye
Mehee, mehigh, and in come Sally, singin'
Sing-song pennywhistle,
Ling-tum nippy-cat;
Sing-song Kitty, cancha
Kie-me-oh.

Just doing my bit to increase the level of confusion in this room. Don't bother to thank me--it's the least I can do for all you wonderful people, who've been so great to me.       Tw
