CapriUni Origins: Jenny Jenkins (55* d) RE: Origins: Jenny Jenkins 03 Jan 16


This song has been stuck in my head since I watched this video from Raymond Crooke: 2016. Jenny Jenkins -- with Axel. I admire how they're singing it: ad lib -- coming up with new lines/rhymes as they go. Done this way, it makes more sense as a courting/riddle song, than if you sing each verse with "proper" answers that have been memorized.

And, since I've had that chorus stuck in my head, I'm starting to wonder if "I'll buy me a fol-de-rol-dy, til-de-tol-dy/Seek-a-double, use-a-cause-a, roll-a-find-me" began its life as "Roll of binding," as in Seam binding (ribbon).

Thoughts? Sewing circle history, anyone?
