Gee! The Arabs got blamed for this 'song' in the school songbook "Music Sounds Afar," Irving Wolfe et al, Follett Pub. Co., 1958.
This book has a musical score. "Tumba," pp. 118-119, piano, with chords and instruction for drum.

In a footnote, they credit "Lift Every Voice," 1950, Cooperative Recreation Service, Delaware, Ohio.
