Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Yippie Kye Aye, Yippie Kye O
I'll have to go through a bunch of books to answer that one, Joe. Since the "Kye Yai Yippies" are missing in Skip's version, and he refers in his note to other extant versions, I suspect what he sings is a reworking of a traditional (or, perhaps more accurately, public domain) item. Can't do it now though. Gotta leave in a wee while for the Adirondack Folk Festival at Schroon Lake, NY. Wish you could join us there!
