Subject: rootitoot and swimming song
From: Musicman
Date: 12 Jul 99 - 02:46 AM

I'm looking for melodies for Rooti toot toot for the moon and the swimming song if anybody has them on midi. I remember learning them long ago, but can't for the life of me remember how they went.
I have the words in a book.

Thanks

Musicman

I was able to locate this song. I don't know if it is the same one you needed and all I can get is the chords and I am not very sure that they will display where I put them once they are posted. In short - this may not be any help at all!

SWIMMING

Swimming, swimming in the swimming-pool

When days are hot, when days are cold, in the swimmingpool

Breat-stroke, side-stroke, fancy diving too.

Don't you wish you ever had anything else to do, but....

Musicman,

We're deducting two points from your DigiTrad Membership card. "The Swimming Song" by my hero Loudon Wainwright III is in the DT, click here.

The other song is by Greg Brown I believe. It definitely is in RUS if you have it. I am separated from my copy (No applause, Dick)or I would type the words for you.

RiB, he said he already had the lyrics. What he is after is the tune. There is no tune (MIDI) in the DB.

Musicman, we sang rooty toot toot at song circle. I bet I can get the melody from our host, SandyBob.

Click here for a sound clip of "Rooty Toot Toot," as sung by Greg Brown. that's not the tune I know, though. Anybody know of other recordings? I didn't find others at CDNOW.
Click here to hear Wainwright singing "Swimming Song."

thanks joe,

Swimming song is the one I'm looking for, but like you, I don't recognize the melody he sing for Rootitoot toot.

I do have the words in RUS for both songs.

Lui Collins does a nice version of "Rooty Toot Toot" on her Baptism of Fire recording.
