Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Fox Went Out on a Chilly Night
Guest, There are several versions on this thread:
I've heard the "mother" or "granny" called all sorts of things: "flipper-flopper", "twiddle twaddle".
The version I grew up with as a child didn't have the "kay-ro-me" or (as I heard in in the UK Midlands in the 70s "ky-row-lee") bits.
Dunno anout the USA, but in the UK it's a very common song. Certainly most children of my generation (born in the 1950s) would have had it sung to them in one of its many variants.
