Subject: RE: Origins: Aikendrum
I know we did a version at school, many years ago. Complete drivel about a bloke playing music on a ladle, and wearing a coat with buttons made of penny loaves, and that sort of stuff. I assumed at the time that his name was a Scottishized pronounciation of "I can drum".   As children, we sang the last line, "And he had an aching bum."

Does that help? :0)
