Thread Name: Lyr/Tune Add: Vu Iz Dos Gesele
Subject: RE: Lyr/Tune Add: Vu Iz Dos Gesele
I found some interesting stuff out here.
It's mentioned as a Russian song from the turn of the century, not a word about Jewish origins, interstingly enough, and compares it to a Polish folk song, collected in Silesia, with similar words and tune. The origin is unknown for both. The Polish (a girl walking along the street) resembles vu iz dos gesele a lot more than the Russian which is about elopement).
