Thread Name: Lyr Req: Tumba ta Tumba
Subject: Tumba ta Tumba
I learned this song as a kid at Girl Scout camp. One group sings tumba ta tumba over and over again; the other sings a high melodic bit. Does anyone know the origins of this? Do the words have meaning or was it cobbled together out of nonsense syllables (which is what I was told).
