Subject: Eddie Catchy Gitchee Goomee...

There was a song that a high school friend tried to teach me on the last day of our senior year. I got down the chorus, and I remember the tune for it. But now that it's coming back to me, I want to know what the verses are, too, 'cause it would be a good song to sing for kids.

You are probably my only chance to find out these lost lyrics, Mudcatters, since I have lost contact with my friend David Nutzell, and nobody else I have asked has ever heard this song. I will be amazed and gratified if you can recover this little song.

The chorus goes:

Eddie Catchy Gitchee Goomee Toasta Nova Toasta Nova Sammy Gammy Wacky Brown Fell into a wel, fell into a well, Fell into a deep, dark well.

His sister sees him fall in the well, so she runs and tells her mom, who runs and tells the neighbor, who runs to get the fireman or somebody, etc., the point being that it takes so long to repeat his name that he drowns before any help arrives. Or so I recall.

Many thankees in advance for efforts at diggin' this up.

Mimsey

EDDIE KOOCHIE CATCHINARY

Eddie Koochie Catchinary Toesinary Toesinary Sammy Gammy Wacky Brown
Fell into the well Fell into the well Fell into the deep dark well

Susie Jones was milking in the barn
Saw him fall and ran inside to tell her mom that
Eddie Koochie Catchinary Toesinary Toesinary Sammy Gammy Wacky Brown
Fell into the well Fell into the well Fell into the deep dark well

Susie's Mom was baking cracklin' Bread
Called old Joe and told him that her Susie said that
Eddie Koochie Catchinary Toesinary Toesinary Sammy Gammy Wacky Brown
Fell into the well Fell into the well Fell into the deep dark well

Then Old Joe he laid his plow aside
Grabbed his cane and hobbled into town and cried that
Eddie Koochie Catchinary Toesinary Toesinary Sammy Gammy Wacky Brown
Fell into the well Fell into the well Fell into the deep dark well

To the well everybody came
What a shame it took so long to say his name that
Eddie Koochie Catchinary Toesinary Toesinary Sammy Gammy Wacky Brown

WHO?
Eddie Koochie Catchinary Toesinary Toesinary Sammy Gammy Wacky Brown

The primary thread on this song is Eddie Something or Other (click). I found it by searching for Eddie with our "Filter." Helps that I already knew we had a thread on the song.
The only recording I know of is the one by The Brother Four on their self-titled album. They call it "Sama Kama Wacky Brown."***
For some reason, people just don't take a lot of care to be accurate on the lyrics of this one....
-Joe Offer-

***It's on a 2-fer CD from Collectors Choice Music, the self-titled album and B.M.O.C. on one CD.

Lyrics:

Eddie Cootchie Catchy Kama Tosa Neera Tosa Noka Sama Kama Wacky-Brown.
Who?
Eddie Cootchie Catchy Kama Tosa Neera Tosa Noka Sama Kama Wacky-Brown.
Oh!
Fell into a well
Fell into a well
Fell into a deep, dark, well

Suzie Jones
Milking in the barn
Saw him fall
Ran inside and told her Ma that

Eddie Cootchie Catchy Kama Tosa Neera Tosa Noka Sama Kama Wacky-Brown
Fell into a well
Fell into a well
Fell into a deep, dark, well

Suzie's Ma
Baking cracklin bread
Saw old Joe
And told him that her Suzie said that

Eddie Cootchie Catchy Kama Tosa Neera Tosa Noka Sama Kama Wacky-Brown
Fell into a well
Fell into a well
Fell into a deep, dark, well

Then Old Joe
Set aside his plough
Grabbed his cane
And hobbled into to town to say that

Eddie Cootchie Catchy Kama Tosa Neera Tosa Noka Sama Kama Wacky-Brown
Fell into a well
Fell into a well
Fell into a deep, dark, well

To the well
Everybody came
What a shame
It took so long to say his name that

Eddie Cootchie Catchy Kama Tosa Neera Tosa Noka Sama Kama Wacky Brown
Yes
Eddie Cootchie Catchy Kama Tosa Neera Tosa Noka Sama Kama Wacky-Brown
Drowned.
