Subject: RE: Senor Don Gato
Hey Joe Offer,

Out of curiosity, where/when did you learn the song. Apparently, it was taught throughout all of Tulsa Public Schools (all of my local friends from here learned it), and the only other people that I know who are familiar with it are various friends from Missouri.

On those days back in grade school when we could choose a song for the class to sing, I ALWAYS selected Don Gato (my classmates hated me after a while).

I realize this is a folk song.....any chance of knowing who wrote it, or any history?

Thanks for the Spanish version.

J. D. Roberson.
