I learned Don Gato in the 4th grade (1983) at Huntington Elementary in Chillicothe, OH (thanks Mrs. Uhrig). One day early this year, out of nowhere, this song popped into my head and it stuck there. Soon after, my son was born, and I was singing it to him but could only remember the first 3 verses. My mom started cracking up because she too remembered this from when I was a kid, and over the last couple of months has been asking me to find the lyrics. Thank goodness for this site and all who've kept this thread alive. Viva Don Gato!
