We once sang a yiddish version that went Tzena, Tzena, Tzena, Ich hob faltza Tzena Teath, Teath, Teath I have false teath

Allan's contribution reminds me of the way John Harley (and some others) sing the Gaelic 'Eilean nam Bo' -

'Bord na Móna, móna, Bord na Móna, móna, Bord Fáilte'

(The Turf/Peat Board, the Tourist Board : Irish Gaelic titles that even the non-fluent know.)
