Subject: RE: meaning - musha ring dumma do dumma da
Re all the speculations thruout this thread [some convincing, others perhaps less so] that the words in the thread-title are a garbled version of meaningful Gaelic phrases: it might not be out of place to remind here of the send-up of such interpretations in the well-known students' song which travesties Scottish balladry, Phearson swore a feud Upon the Clan McTavish", where the chorus goes

Cammer-oo cammer-i cammer-o
Cammer-oo cammer-i cammer-oris
Cammer-oo cammer-i cammer-o ~~
And that's the Gaelic chorus!
