GUEST,Anne Croucher children's taunt tune: nyah nyah, na nyah nyah (93* d) RE: children's taunt tune: nyah nyah, na nyah nyah 03 Apr 04


the nyaa nyaa 'tune' is also used for

Ginger you're barmy
you want to join the army.

it is almost the same tune I have for Bye baby Bunting but I think the interval between the first and second notes is not the same.

There is also 'coo eeee' which varies either as 'oo ooee' soft call and the 'OOU-hEEE' cry which seem to have the universal meaning of 'attention over here'

There are a couple of classic misheard in church phrases - all my eye and Betty Martin - pray for me blessed Martin, butin Latin, and Gladly, my crosseyed bear.
