Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Way Down Yonder on Beaver Creek
I learned this song in 8th grade glee club.(1943 or so)
The chorus is the same, but we learned several more verses following the first one...."way down yonder,etc."

"they go to bed, but it ain't no use.
sing song kitty can't you ki meo.
Feet stick out for the chickens to roost.
sing song kitty can't you ki meo.

Chorus>

Our cow won't give milk in summer.
sing song kitty can't you ki meo
So we have to take it from her.
sing song kitty can' you ki meo.

There are probably more, but that's all I can remember.

I am trying to find another song we sang back then about 4 mosquitos,
"Zingywing,and zangywing and zungywing and zoon,
pesky young mosquitos, 'neath summer moon. etc.

Anyone remember that one?
