and e Origins: I Paula Taska Nonsense Song (Roud 12944) (38) RE: Origins: I Paula Taska Nonsense Song (Roud 12944) 13 Jul 14


We'll start with the German examples

Hans Thill

Das heiße Fleisch der Wörter VII


em pom pi polonie polonossa
em pom pe polonie
akademus popeius
akademus puff puff

(Mädchenvers ca. 1962)

em pom pi kolonie kolonaste
em pom pi kolonie
akademus popeius
akademus puff puff

(Mädchenvers ca. 1982)

em pom pi koloni kolonastik
em pom pi kolonie
akademi suffari
akademi puff puff

(Mädchenvers ca. 2002)

The above was retrieved from http://www.der-goldene-fisch.de/gf.php/texte/zeit/1/9 on July 13, 2014.


Below are five videos of this song from German/Austrian sources on Youtube:

1) Em bam bi
2) Em Pom Pi ... Kolonastik
3) impompi
4) Empompie Kolonie
5) empompie kolonie


The first four are of hand-clap games between two people and the fifth examples the song is used as a counting-out rhyme.

Does anyone know this German language version?   If so, when did you learn it?
