Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Castles in Tovishka? (Toviska)
Just today, I found the song apparently copied by hand by me from a song book, probably fifty or more years ago. I too was exposed to it in elementary school. In the version I have, it appears there are five verses, with the first four having separate verses for boys and girls, and the final verse sung by both. BOYS: Toviska, Toviska, Castles In Toviska; GIRLS: Toviska, Toviska, I Will Sing Toviska; BOYS: Were There No Lassies I'd Not Be A Soldier; GIRLS: If You Leave Now I Am Sure To Forget You; BOYS: Toviska, Toviska, Hear Me Sing Toviska, There Is No Hurry, I Might Change My Mind For You; GIRLS: Toviska, Toviska, Who's Singing Toviska?, Are You Still Here Though I've Said My Good-Bye To You?; ALL: Toviska, Toviska, Castles In Toviska!, We'll Go A Walking And Talking Together, Hoo-Ya Hoo-Ya-Ya, Hoo-Ya Hoo-Ya-Ya, Hoo-Ya Hoo-Ya-Ya-Ya, Ya-Ya.
