Thread Name: Origins: Schnitzelbank
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: Schnitzelbank
Rick at Robokopp says that there are a number of German songs that list things including zoo animals and even nationalities. Others, like Ja, Ja, Ja, are parodies of German songs that poke fun at the German-speaking immigrants. Schnitzelbank almost certainly originated in a German-speaking part of Europe, probably Bavaria or that general area. There are interesting songs from all over on Rick's site. One of the best!
