and e Origins: I Paula Taska Nonsense Song (Roud 12944) (38) RE: Origins: "Ponié ponié poniássa" (Roud 12944) 25 Mar 15

Information from the Swedish twins. The earliest date for the song is 1901. It is found in the German songbook _Anstich-Lieder_ [Drinking Songs] by Julius Meyer where the song is #118 and is titled "Ponié ponié poniássa".

118. Ponié ponié poniássa

1. Ponié ponié poniássarun, qua qui qua qua o Nikodemo o Schermakun qa, o Nikodemo Schermakun qua un qua, unqua.

2. Politas, politas, politassa run, quq qui, qua qua u.f.w.

3. quonni genni, quonni genni, quonni nassa run, qua qui, qua qua u.f.w.

This matches up with the "I Paula Taska" and the "O Nikodemo". Sorry I am unable to post the music.
