Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Rooty Toot Toot for the Moon (Greg Brown)
I can't, for the life of me, remember WHO it was in concert - might have been Greg Brown or Bill Staines, it was many many years ago, though I know it was a he, talking about the "Rooty Toot Toot Phenomenon." Folks would become enchanted with the song, and try to sing it, but even if they remembered the words to the verses somewhat, then the melody would escape them, or vice-versa. They'd be able to sing out loudly on the chorus, so the verses would be things like "Mumble mumble mumble green cheese." It was a very funny bit. And both of the above mentioned gentlemen tell grand stories to introduce their songs.
