For whatever reason the phrase Hey, Nonny Nonny, Piminy, Miminy Mo was used by The Gershwin Brothers in the verse to "Meadow Serenade" in the 1927 version of Strike Up the Band. The verse was not recorded in the premiere recording of the song by Kiri Te Kenawa (the music had been lost) but by 1991 new music for the verse portion was supplied by Burton Lane for the restoration of SUTB.
