Out in the Wide World Kitty is a Josef Mirais and Miranda song from their 1950-60 era albums -- dunno which one. From memory the verse goes:
My Kitty sailed away from me,
To far and distant lands
And when I asked a goodbye jiss
She said, oh, no! Shake hands
ANd I believe the last choris line was "Kitty o'er the sea". If this is th esong as Paulito heard it, it would have been a South Afrikaans accent, not a Scottish or Irish one, but an understandable guess if one natively speaks Spanish.
