GUEST,heather Kids chant Stella Ola Ola / Stella Ella Ola (89* d) RE: Kids chant Stella Ola Ola / Stella Ella Ola 25 Feb 06


Hi. I maniacally got out of bed at 2 am because I HAD TO google this thing haunting my imagination: and yes, it was "stella ola ola, trap trap trap, estigo tigo, tigo tigo trap trap, estigo tigo valo valo valo valo valo val 1234 5!" That dreaded 5. You had to be fast, man.
Imagine my pleasure to find that not only had others been thinking of this (most mysterious, charming) chant, but that there were regional, cultural and generational variants. I have phonetically written it as I remember it, but appreciate the rich varieties that have been put into this thread.
You know: no matter how traumatic grades 5 and 6 were, I get a rush of feeling both competent and excited when I chant this little rhyme. Wierd. But true. And having read this thread through, I'm going to put my money on Spanish-speaking origins.
Love to you all. HL
