Thread Name: Origins: Schnitzelbank
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Schnitzelbank
Also not a scholarly response, but, for what it's worth, I learned this song in the mid-40s from an elderly Catholic nun who was from Germany. No idea if she learned it in Germany or the U.S. My father (born in U.S.) was the son of a northern Italian interpreter. When after school I sang Schnitzelbank, my dad recognized it, sang it with me and corrected my pronounciation.
