Thread Name: froggie went a courtin
Subject: RE: froggie went a courtin
Hi Banjo Johnny, yes, the original question was about that froggy going a-courting, but there seems to be a side-discussion going about a song with a refrain in my version (=what I hear Ed McCurdy singing which may or may not be what he sings) that goes Kemo Kimo where o where, mahee, mahigh, and in come Sally singing sing song pennywhistle ding tongue nippy cat sing song kitty kitcha kime-e-o. It's a nonsense song with puns, like in one verse "the fellows grow to beat 10 feet" and in the next they "Tried to sleep but it's no use ... their feet stick out for the hens to roost" and so on. I haven't done a digitrad search on it yet but from the tone of the above conversation I think it is in it.
