DT Lyrics:





Subject: Lyr Req: Sangarie
From: GUEST,Foe
Date: 21 Jan 03 - 09:35 AM

Deep in the back of my mind a small voice says I used to know a song (c 1960s) that went like:

Yada, yada, yada, Sangarie

Yada, yada, yada, Sangarie, etc.

(yada = ???)

Does this connect with anything anyone remembers?

Q - That was Jaddah, jaddah, jaddah, jaddah, jing jing jing.
A few years late and not very complete.
While I knew it in the 1950s, I think it is from the 1930s- flapper?

"Ja-Da" is an older song, author Bob Carleton, 1918, copyright Leo Feist Inc.; recorded by Arkansas Travelers, 1927. Most of the jazz greats recorded it. There are 368 listings of recordings at allmusic.com.

Jim Dixon posted lyrics to Ja-Da in thread 117235.

No sangarie or sangria in the original lyrics.

There is a song on a record called The Hillmen.

The group was actually called The Golden State Boys at one time, but the record company that released the LP was trying to take advantage of the subsequent success of member Chris Hillman.

The song is listed as Sangeree and is credited to good ol' "traditional". Actually, I'm rather certain that this song is only on the CD version, not the LP (1971 release, 1963-4 recording dates).

"Sangaree" is a poem by Langston Hughes, and also a bluegrass piece, a song by Dunbar that has a line about sipping sangaree (sangria), and I think other songs, but they have nothing to do with "Ja-Da."

Paul Laurence Dunbar (African-American poet):
Verse in "Opportunity," 1901

Lemon pie an' ginger-cake,
Let me set an' think-
Vinegar an' sugar, too,
That'll make a drink,
Ef they's one thing that I loves
Mos' pu'ticlahy,
It is eatin' sweet things an'
A-drinkin' Sangaree.

If sangaree is a drink, it probably means sangria.

Yes, Sangaree is the southern (U. S.) equivalent of sangria.

But I can't find any song that combines 'yada' and 'sangarie'.

Funny, I don't remember ever hearing of "sangaree" but I now see it is a well-known word. (I only noticed the similarity to "sangria" which I remember had a brief popularity in Minnesota in the 1970s. For a while, you could even buy sangria already bottled, though people usually mixed their own, as a kind of party punch, made from red wine and fruit juice. It was a fad for a while and then disappeared.)

Sangria is still popular in hot summers in a few parts of the south, but I remember it from Spain, where a pitcher of chilled fruit juice with added wine was wonderful on a warm day.
Everybody has their own variations, depending on available juice.

Sangeree
                   ~ The Hillman

VERSE 1:

Now, I've got a house
Down in Baltimore
With a streetcar runnin'
Right by my door

If I stay lucky
And I don't get killed
I'm going back
To Jacksonville

CHORUS:

Oh, babe
Oh, babe
Oh, babe
Honey babe

VERSE 2:

Now, I've got a shovel
And my wife's got a hoe
Well, if that ain't farmin'
Buddy, I don't know

Well, we bought a farm
Way down south
There's [cotton ?] growin'
All around my house

CHORUS

VERSE 3:

Now, the work is hard
And the pay is small
So, I'm gonna move
Come next Fall

Well, [there's good ?] moonshinin'
But I lost my still
So, I'm goin' back
To Jacksonville

CHORUS

{chorus followed by instrumental break each time except last}
{word "sangree" is echoed throughout verse and chorus}
{punctuation and spelling is mine for better or worse}
{the words with [ ? ] around them my not be correct}

This trio, consisting of Tom Paley, James Reams, and Bill Christophersen, has an old-timey sound. They play banjo, guitar, and fiddle.


SANGAREE
As sung by The Mysterious Redbirds on "1992-1998" (2003)

1. Now I've got a home (Sangaree)
Down in Brooklyn town. (Sangaree)
Hear the train a-runnin' (Sangaree)
In my home underground. (Sangaree)
[If I] don't get murdered, (Sangaree)
[And I] don't get killed, (Sangaree)
Now I'm goin' back (Sangaree)
To Louisville. (Sangaree)

CHORUS: Oh, babe, (Sangaree)
Oh, babe, (Sangaree)
Oh, babe, (Sangaree)
Honey babe.

2. Now I've got a shovel. (Sangaree)
My wife's got a hoe. (Sangaree)
If that ain't farmin', (Sangaree)
Buddy, I don't know. (Sangaree)
Well, I tried moonshinin' (Sangaree)
And I lost the still. (Sangaree)
Now I'm goin' back (Sangaree)
To Louisville. (Sangaree) CHORUS

Subject: Lyr Add: SANGAREE (trad. Georgia Sea Islands)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 18 Jan 12 - 06:26 PM

From Slave Songs of the Georgia Sea Islands by Lydia Parrish (Athens, GA: University of Georgia Press, 1942, reprinted 1992), page 99 (There is a lead sheet on page 101.)


SANGAREE

This ring-play varies in action whenever I see it done. For that reason I will attempt no description. The tune, however, always remains the same.

1. If I live (Sangaree)
Don' get kill' (Sangaree)
I'm goin' back (Sangaree)
Jacksonville (Sangaree)

CHORUS: Oh Babe (Sangaree)
Oh Babe (Sangaree)
Oh Babe (Sangaree)
Oh Babe (Sangaree)

2. If I live (Sangaree)
See nex' fall (Sangaree)
Ain' goin' t' plant (Sangaree)
No cotton at all (Sangaree) CHORUS

3. Chicken in the fiel' (Sangaree)
Scratchin' up peas (Sangaree)
Dog on the outside (Sangaree)
Scratchin' off fleas (Sangaree) CHORUS

Extra verses contributed by a Darien singer:

4. My husban's got the shovel (Sangaree)
An' I got the hoe (Sangaree)
If that ain't farmin' (Sangaree)
I don't know (Sangaree) CHORUS

5. If you want t' see a nigger (Sangaree)
Cut the fool (Sangaree)
Let him ride (Sangaree)
A white man's mule (Sangaree) CHORUS
