GUEST,another guest Lyr Req: My Name Is Yon Yonson - that's all??? (65* d) RE: Lyr Req: My Name Is Yon Yonson - that's all??? 14 Jul 13

Sooo funny! My Swedish Poppa taught us this version. He lived in Chicago in the very early 1900's. We sang it on car trips and on Christmas eve as a trick for our gifts (any other Scandinavian's do that?).I thought I had blended two memories until reading that last post! His went like this...
My name is Yon Yohnson. I come from Visconsin. I work for the C B and Q. I sit on the steeple and spit on the people. Oh, Yes! For the C B and Q! I do! I researched the C B and Q and believe it refers to the Chicago, Burlington and Quincy Railroad. The 'steeple'? I can't figure out!
