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


From page 5 of this untitled Scouting Songbook which has been scanned as a PDF. I would date the songbook early 1990s and definitely of American in origin.

GING GANG GOULEE

Ging gang goolee, goolee, goolee, goolee
watcha, ging gang goo, ging gang goo.
Ging gang, goolee, goolee, goolee, goolee
watcha, ging gang o, ging gang goo.
Hayla, hayla, shayla, hayla shayla hayla ho.
Hayla, hayla shayla, hayla shayla hayla ho.
Shally wally, shally wally,
Oompah, oompah, oompah, oompah oommmmm.



Another version from the same page of the same songbook:

"INDIAN SONG"

QUE QUA MOONIE MOONIE MOONIE MOONIE
MOSHNICK
HUM QUA QUE, HUM QUA QUO,
QUE QU MOONIE MOONIE MOONIE MOONIE
MOSHNICK,
HUM QUA QUE, HUM QUA QUO.

CHORUS

OH NICODEMO, OH GALLY SLY AMMA
OH NICODEMO, OH GALLY OLY HUM QUA HUM QUA

Notice that the "Indian Song" matches the title and the first words from the Swedish songbook.
