My partner is from a Dundee and remembers a song from her childhood which always made her cry. All she remembers is "My hee ro shee mama" I've tried Google to no avail and, while I realise there's very little to go on, it's just possible that for somebody here ti might spark a memory. Thanks in advance.

Wanda Jackson recorded Fujiyama Mama quite a few years back. Hiroshima is one of the places mentioned in the song.

Hi Nigel,
Any clues on the background of the song? Japanese, Gaelic, or the school playgrounds of Dundee? Lullaby or comic song?

There's also YOKOHAMA MAMA.

Here's a video of Wanda Jackson singing FUJIYAMA MAMA

I bet you it IS "Fujiyama Mama" - I've line dit up on YouTube. June in bed asleep at the moment, but I'll play it to her in the morning and see what she says.
