Thread Name: Donkey Riding - What's Hong-ki-kong?
Subject: RE: Donkey Riding - What's Hong-ki-kong?
I hope you do find the more-or-less authentic verses, since some of them in the text sound like something Barney the Purple Dinosaur would sing:
"See the king with his golden crown" ??
"Where the skeeters bite we" ??
These must be cover-ups for something less clumsy!
I laugh every time I hear Great Big Sea shout out the "golden crown" bit in such a righteous way, and laugh harder when I hear clones do it exactly the same.
I'm being too mean-spirited; I should go to bed soon.
