Thread Name: meaning - musha ring dumma do dumma da
Subject: RE: meaning - musha ring dumma do dumma da
The 'musha' part means 'mar is ea', pronounced 'mar sha' and meaning "if it be so". I think the ring dum-a-doo-rum-da is port-a-béal - mouth-music, or nonsense syllables sung for fun. Whiskey in the jar - well, pass it round, boys (and girls).
