delphinium Origins: Go Tell Aunt Rhody (67* d) RE: Origins: History of Go Tell Aunt Rhody 06 Feb 03

Masato, the first verse of your last posted version doesn't go very well with the other verses. It looks like it is from the song Daddy Fox

Old mother Slipper Slopper jumped out of bed
And out of the window she pop her head,
Crying John, John, the grey goose is gone,
And the fox is gone to his den-o

Interesting, the 2 songs have always been connected in my mind, maybe because they both are about dead geese, or more likely because my dad used to sing them both.
