Subject: RE: meaning - musha ring dumma do dumma da
One reading most of these posts I think the origins of 'musha ring dumma do damma da' are lost in 'antiquity'. BUT in reply to Roger in Baltimore waaay back in '99 about the song 'Wimoweh' it is actually a South African song written in 1939 by Solomon Linda titled 'Mbube Wimoweh' which translates as 'The Lion Sleeps'. And in response to Joe Offer in '99 Abiyoyo was also a South African folk tale made into a song by the wonderful Pete Seeger.
