KING KONG KITCHIE KITCHIE KI-ME-O

Chubby Parker and his old time banjo, New York,
August 13, 1928 - from the Harry Smith Collection

1. Frog went a-courtin' and he did ride
King Kong Kitchie Kitchie Ki-Me-O
With a sword and a pistol by his side
King Kong Kitchie Kitchie Ki-Me-O

CHORUS: Kimo keemo kimo kee
Way down yonder in a holler tree
An owl and a bat and a bumble bee
King Kong Kitchie Kitchie Ki-Me-O

2. He rode 'til he came to Miss Mouse's door
And there he knelt upon the floor

3. He took Miss Mouse upon his knee
And he said, 'Miss Mouse will you marry me?"

4. Miss Mouse had suitors three or four
And there they came right in the door

5. They grabbed Mister Frog and began to fight
In a holler tree 'twas a terrible night

6. Mister Frog drug(?) the suitors to the floor
With his sword and his pistol, he killed all four

7. They went to the parson the very next day
And left on their honeymoon right away

8. Now they lived far off in a holler tree
Where they now have wealth and children three
