That should be yows as in ca' the yows as opposed to yowsa as in "yowsa that's my baby"

Ben Botkin listed "Steptodarearofdabuspleeze" in his Folklore of New York City.

How 'bout "flimalimalee" or "casalomalee" from Larry Older's "Cambric Shirt"

or "zit" from any number of French-Canadian song chrouses?
