Subject: RE: Origins: The Devil's NINE Questions
If you give no attention to these things Three... or Sing thirty-three and thirty
You'll be taken you off mudcat for life... Or could be the mudcat's bonny.

What is the significance and meaning of... singing "ninety-nine and ninety"?
Is there just the one correct answer for number 8? might be the mudcat's bonnyI
And I choose bonny to mean favorite, looking for ninety-nine people to agree with me

The Devil's Questions version that takes the cake? still singing ninety-nine and ninety
Jean Ritchie & Paul Clayton's take from American Folk Tales & Songs is my bonny.
listen to me and track it down, you will delight ninety times out of ninety

and you ARE Max's bonny
