Hi, can anyone help with lyrics or origin or title of this song? Any info at all? I remember a song from infancy that I can only assume was partly in Gaelic; the English part of the words were "throw him up, up, throw him up in the sky, throw him up, up, he'll be home by and by," or "he'll be home for tea," and the Gaelic part sounded like "Crook a nandy nandy Crook a nandy-O" -- and then more phrases but I don't speak Gaelic and hesitate to try to approximate the sound of the words. It was sung with "Can Ye Sew Cushions," which I have since located.
Thank you!
Priscilla

Wow, thank you -- amazing to see all of that -- for me it was just a bit of baby memory -- glad I remembered it well enough to lead me to this. Will try to piece it all together now, with the Irish language as well. Thank you.
