Thread Name: old mister rat took a notion for wife
Subject: old mister rat took a notion for wife
Am looking for an Applachian folk song. The nonsense lyrics (I am writing them with some trepidation) begin as follows:

"Old mister rat took a notion for a wife. To my rat-trap a bottom-itchy Kai-m-bo.

He jumped on his horse and he rode for his life. To my rat trap a bottom-itch Kai-m-bo.

Chorus Karo, Karo, give to Flayro, Flaro Flaro, Flaaaa-rooooo.

Aaaaaany wink-ee flemm-ee doodle yellow bug to my rat-trap a bottom-itchy Kai-m-bo.
