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


The "O Alla Tinka", p. 428, found in Scotland, 1951 is the first variant I posted:

I paula tay, paula taska,
Paula tay, paula toe.
I paula tay, paula taska,
Paula tay, paula toe.
O alia tinka, to do the rhumba,
O alia tinka, do the
Rhumba umba umba umba-ay.



I have American versions usually under the title "Sarasponda" and "Ging Gang Goolie". Also remember that Haruo is an American.

Two texts from an American scouting photocopied / mimeographed songbook to follow in my next post.
