Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Miserlou
This very old song is claimed by the Greeks and by Hasidic and Sephardic Jews, but may be Lebanese-Arabic in origin. A fine rendition is in the Kantikas para syempre folder (select) of this website, MP3. Many Sephardic, Greek and other songs: Sephardic Music

The first popular record album I ever bought (1940?) contained this song, sung by Carol Bruce (18185A, Decca Album). I played it continuously, wearing out both album and needle.
