and e Origins: I Paula Taska Nonsense Song (Roud 12944) (38) RE: Origins: A Ram Sam Sam (Roud 12944) 16 Jul 14

Ok. Here is another songs with a different tune that I believe is related to "Que Quay Quo" / "Gin Gang Goolie"/ "Sarasponda" song group. This song is titled "A Ram Sam Sam". The earliest I can trace this song is to Let's All Sing (1958) published by the American Camping Association.    The text below is a representative version from the internet.


A ram sam sam, a ram sam sam
Guli guli guli guli and a ram sam sam
A rafi, a rafi,
Guli guli guli guli and a ram sam sam

This song is purportedly a Mococcan folksong but I have been unable to verify this. I haven't been able to find much variation to this member of family.
