I've had the tune and the few words in the thread title going around in my head for months and no amount of searching has brought up anything except a posting here by Steve Parkes on 28 July 2004. I couldn't find any response to his query though. Can anyone please put me out of my misery?

Hi, Barrie - the song is running through my head as "Eine Kleine Fliegel Flugel Bird," but I can't recall anything more of it.
My Google search brought up only the Steve Parkes post. Somebody please help - this fragment may well drive me crazy!!
Oh, this page speaks of "the kleine kleine fliegel flugel aufgeweckene biegel bugel ergeschplitten lauteboomer bird." Sounds like Danny Kaye to me.

Joe, I think you may be right. I remember that line and it seems to conjure up a picture of (I think) Danny Kaye dressed in leiderhausen (don't if that's spelt right) so I'm guessing it must have been in a film I saw way back then.

Thanks for your attempts to help me. I think it has now succeeded in driving me completely round the bend! I don't speak German, so tried an alta vista translation of variations on spelling and came up with "a small flies flight on gewechene bends to nose gel erge schplitte loud more boomer" as the English meaning of "eine kleine fliege flug auf gewechene biege buggel erge schplitte laute boomer".
Can someone now give me advice on how to get away from the men in white coats?

Of course, the phrase is more English than German - it's just meant to sound like German. If you find the Fliegel Flugel confusing, try this:

^^ Ballad

Der noble Ritter Hugo
Von Schwillensaufenstein,
Rode out mit shpeer and helmet,
Und he coom to de panks of de Rhine.

Und oop dere rose a meermaid,
Vot hadn't got nodings on,
Und she say, "Oh, Ritter Hugo,
Vhere you goes mit yourself alone?"

And he says, "I rides in de creenwood,
Mit helmet und mit shpeer,
Till I cooms into ein Gasthaus,
Und dere I trinks some beer."

Und den outshpoke de maiden
Vot hadn't got nodings on:
"I ton't dink mooch of beoplesh
Dat goes mit demselfs alone.

"You'd petter coom down in de wasser,
Vhere dere 's heaps of dings to see,
Und hafe a shplendid tinner
Und drafel along mit me.

"Dere you sees de fisch a-schwimmin',
Und you catches dem efery von" : —
So sang dis wasser maiden
Vot had n't got nodings on.

"Dere ish drunks all full mit money
In ships dat vent down of old;
Und you helpsh yourself, by dunder!
To shimmerin' crowns of gold.

"Shoost look at dese shpoons und vatches!
Shoost see dese diamant rings!
Coom down and fill your bockets,
Und I'll giss you like eferydings.

"Vot you vantsh mit your schnapps und lager?
Coom down into der Rhine!
Der ish pottles der Kaiser Charlemagne
Vonce filled mit gold-red wine!"

Dat fetched him—he shtood all shpellpound;
She pooled his coat-tails down,
She drawed him oonder der wasser,
De maiden mit nodings on.

from Hans Breitmann's Ballads, by Charles Godfrey Leland, 1888 & 1914

From: Wilfried Schaum
Date: 22 Jan 05 - 02:37 PM

The whole song seems to be intended to sound like German; there are some witty puns (for German ears).
- kleine = small
- fliegel = the added L rhymes with the next word. Fliegen = to fly, Fliege = the fly
- flugel = Flügel = the wing (when will you Anglo-Saxons finally learn to pronounce this easy sound? We mastered your goddam TH!)
- aufgeweckene = aufgeweckte = pt. pf. pass. of to wake up
- biegel = like fliegel, from biegen = to bend
- bugel = Bügel = coat hanger, stirrup, yoke et al.
- ergeschplitten = ? to split with a German ending?
- lauteboomer = booming loud

Lederhosen = leather trousers; common in Bavaria, and associated with entire Germany all over the world.

Sorry to be of no more help.

Hans Breitmann's Ballads are influenced by Pennsylvania Dutch; Cleland studied in Heidelberg where he achieved a good handling of German. I noticed that he choose mostly German words which sound similar in English with a bad accent. His poems in Chinese Pidgin are very funny, too. I can only recommend them very strongly.

I have heard the song Compton mentioned (which may not be Eine Kleine Fliegel Fluge Bird at all) sung at a Scout camp in the Adirondacks, which claims to have created it about 50 years ago. Its similar lyrics are as follows:

Early in the morning
When I'm fast asleep
Heard a little birdie
Go cheep-cheep.
And the little birdie
Has a funny name.
His ... name ... is ...
Iga-fliga-fleega-fliga-ishca-nishca-naga-naga-iga-fliga-fleega-fliga-birdie!

Gone to buy some birdseed
For my window sill
Just to keep him quiet
Just to keep him still.
It's for the little birdie
With a funny name.
His ... name ... is ...
Iga-fliga-fleega-fliga-ishca-nishca-naga-naga-iga-fliga-fleega-fliga-birdie!

Not my sort of song but I obviously heard it when I still had the all retentive memory - unfortunately it broke - and I can only vaguely recall a fragment, or maybe fragments -

Early in the morning, whilst I'm still asleep
Comes a noisy chirping, comes a cheep a cheep
Smack in the middle of my dreaming
Of kissing the one that I do really love.

Definately Max Bygraves, it is all mixed up with toothbrushes and mice in clogs and tulips from Amsterdam, with a tune a bit like Lily Marlene

Mice in clogs and Amsterdam? Well, I've just got to muddy this thread a bit further then. I was taught this song when I was quite young, and the tune has faded a bit in memory but these are the words I remember...


I saw a mouse..
Where?
There on the stair!
Where on the stair?
Right there! A little mouse with clogs on..
Went clip-clippity-clop on the stair

(line missing)
A windmill with mice in
It's hardly surprisin'
He sang every moment
"How lucky I am,
Livin' in a windmill
In old Amsterdam!"

and then something about the mouse meeting a female mouse and 'first they had triplets and then they had twins' and finishing off with the chant from the beginning: "I saw a mouse! Where?..." etc.

The hit version I knew was recorded by Don Lang in the early 1960's. I remember seeing him perform it on the "6:05 Special" (fans of Pete Murray - 2 minutes silence).

This is how I remember it:

Early in the morning
While I'm still asleep
Comes a little birdie
Going cheep-cheep-cheep
And this little birdie
Has this silly name - he's the
Kleine kleine fliegel flugel aufgenwecken and biegel bugel ergenschplitten de laudenboomer bird (approximately!)

Gonna put some bird-seed
On the windowsill
Just to keep him happy
Just to keep him still
'Cos although I love that birdie
I love my honey more - than the
Kleine kleine fliegel flugel aufgenweckenen and biegel bugel ergeschplitten de laudenboomer bird!

As indicated by someone earlier, it's "Germlish" - just a lot of German-type sounds strung together. It was very popular in its day.

Reminds me of Dave Morrah, who wrote some books retelling fairy tales and poems in fractured German-English; I think one of them was called Der Wizard in Ozzenland. This would have been around the late 50s/early 60s. The lyrics aren't his, clearly, or they'd start: "Earlisch in den Morgen".

As for mastering our "th", Europeans are constantly exposed to English through music, films and Bush's posturing, and they often have an active need to use it themselves. But when do we in America hear ANY German? Even foreign visitors prefer to speak English here, as their English is quite fluent - if not better than ours. Learning foreign languages in America is an exercise in futility; one's knowledge too quickly fades from disuse. So don't bother us with your silly umlauts; give us a trilled r for Spanish, and we're set for life. :-}

Meine kleine Grossmutti lived in America for close to sixty years, and although she generally spoke English quite well and named one of her American daughters "Ruth", she always said "t" instead of "th". (She also pronounced "v" like "w"; I never figured out the logic behind that.)

Mustn't it be the other way round with your grandma? Germans tend to pronunce the English w like v, due to the German usage. Although the double u should be pronounced as labial, we Germans use it now for the voiced labio-dental. The use of v is ambiguous, unvoiced labiodental like f and voiced labio-dental like the English v. Don't ask me for the hidden logic, I'm afraid there is none.
The pronunciation of Ruth [also German spelling] like Rut is standard procedure in German. Luther designed the aspiration of the Hebrew taw by adding an h which is not spoken in our language.

I then moved out some years after, my room was painted, the piece of paper was taken down; and ever since then the first line "Eine kleine fliegel flugel aufgeweckene biegel bugel" of the song will pop into my head and drive me mad for days because I can't remember the rest. The only thing I remember is it ends with "birdie".If you should ever solve this little riddle, take out an advert in the major newspapers around the world! PLEASE!

Transcription, hell! We don't even have a verified title for the song, or singer, or other source, such as a movie.

The most specific source anyone has mentioned is the album Kids Tunes, which GUEST,Tammy mentioned above. Unfortunately, even the publisher's web site doesn't give a track list, and Allmusic.com doesn't list the album.

I also have a copy, on CD, of the very song.....

According to sleeve notes supplied it is called "Kliener Kliener Bird" (although I suspect it is Kleine) and my recording is from a show called "The One O'Clock Spot" recorded live for the BBC Light Programme at the Aeolian Hall, Bond Street, on 12th November 1959, and starring Ronnie Aldrich and the Squadronaires, featuring Joan Baxter, Ken Kirkham, Peter Morton and Cliff Townsend with his singing saxophone.....

Hmmm. This is the first time I've seen a quote from this song with the word "oxenbecken" in it. I wonder if that's a reference to the oxpecker, an African bird that sits on the backs of large animals and eats the parasites off them.

I have no idea what the German word for oxpecker is. It wouldn't surprise me if the songwriter, inspired by the oxpecker, rendered it as "oxenpecker" or "oxenpecken" in pseudo-German.

Learnt this as a child 40+ years ago. I always sing it as "einer kliener fleagle flugle arch me back and a beagle boogle ear splittin larger boomer bird" sung by Rosemary Clooney.

MGM yellow label 990, first published 1958 as "the louden boomer bird" (early every morning), No 58-S-210, Rosemary Clooney. Orchestra under the direction of Buddy Cole. Made in UK by EMI. 78 RPM. B side of "Its a boy". We still have the record.

From: Jim Dixon
Date: 10 Apr 10 - 08:48 AM

At last, thanks to Martin Valentine, we now have a reliable title and origin for this song. This enabled me to find a recording at YouTube which even has a photo of the record label. (This one is a 7-inch 45-rpm record issued in the USA.) I have transcribed it below.

The "hook" of this song is the German (or pseudo-German) pronunciation of many words. Accordingly I have applied my (imperfect) knowledge of German phonetics. Any words that are not standard English, I have put into italics and tried to spell as if they were German. Of course, most of them are not really German, either, but they are pronounced as if they were. The spellings are my own invention; I haven't seen any sheet music.


THE LOUDENBOOMER BIRD (EARLY EV'RY MORNING)
Words and music by Al Hoffman and Dick Manning © 1958
As sung by Rosemary Clooney

1. Early ev'ry morning (early ev'ry morning)
While I'm still asleep (weil I'm still asleep)
Comes a little chirping (kums a little chirping)
Comes a little peep (kums a little peep)
From a tiny birdie (from a kleine birdie)
With a funny name (mit a funny name)
It's the kleine kleine fliegel-flugel
Aufgeweckene biegel-bugel
Ihr-gesplitten laudenbumer
bird.

BRIDGE: He wakes me in the middle of my dreamin', (dreamin')*
Dreamin' of the one I love, (ah-ah-ah)*
Smack in the middle of my kissin', (kissin')*
Kissin' the one that I am dreamin' of.

2. Gonna put some bird seed (gonna put some bird seed)
On the windowsill (on de vindowsill)
Just to keep him busy (tshust to keep him busy)
Just to keep him still (tshust to keep him still)
Though I love his singin' (though I love his singin')
I love my honey more (I luf my honey more)
Than the kleine kleine fliegel-flugel
Aufgeweckene biegel-bugel
Ihr-gesplitten laudenbumer
bird.

REPEAT BRIDGE AND VERSE 2.

Than the kleine kleine fliegel-flugel
Aufgeweckene biegel-bugel
Ihr-gesplitten laudenbumer

Steve, I'm glad to hear that. It's nice to know that someone is actually singing a song that I have put so much work into transcribing.

So, did you get someone else to sing the responses (the words in parentheses)? Or did you just skip them? Or sing them yourself?

Jim, I certainly did get everyone to sing the responses. I often tell them I don't intend to do all work myself, and I quote dear old Alex Campbell, who used to say, 'this is a folksong, an if you folks don't sing, it ain't gonna work!'
It can be hard work teaching a whole new chorus, even though it's a round-the-room session and there are plenty of singers, but I find they're always up for anything that involves shouting something like 'oi!'. There's a Harry Champion music hall song with the chorus I never get the knock when the boys shout 'cock! cocketty-cock-cock...' Even the shy ones take great pleasure in shouting 'cock!' at the tops of their voices. The repeating line format goes down well, with songs like Three men of Bristol city; I shall have to try 'em out with Gilly-Gilly-Ossenfeffer -- do you know that one?

I learnt the version that goes:
Early in the morning

I heard a littlw chirping
I heard a little cheep
It was a little birdy
With a very funny name
It was an Eine Kleine Finger Fangla Echolo bochola Eating spitting banana eating bird.

I heard a little chirping,
I heard a little cheep.
It was a little birdy,
With a very funny name.
It was an Eine Kleine Finger Fanga Echola Bochola Jingla Jangla Eating Spitting bannana Eating bird.
Then at the end you say to the next person "your turn" and you all sing it in like a round. I don't know the other verses or how to pronounce any of it, but I know this is right.
P.S Some of it is German. Eine Kleine means small.

Today I found on Spotify:

THE LOUDENBOOMER BIRD sung by Max Bygraves on "Unbeatable Bygraves" (2010)

LOUDENBOOMER BIRD sung by The Four Lads on "The Four Lads Legacy" (2013)

Both of the above stick pretty close to the lyrics already posted—except that the background singers don't seem to be trying to sound like they're German or have German accents. Then there's this:

SPATZENHAUSEN – KATZENHAUSEN – THE LOUDENBOOMER BIRD sung by Eve Boswell on "Eve Boswell International Vol. 1" (2007) – which is entirely in German, or possibly Afrikaans—I'm not sure I could tell the difference. The words are entirely different from "kleine kleine fliegel-flugel" etc. I'm not even sure it's about a bird.

Eve Boswell, by the way, was NOT, as I first assumed, a member of the Boswell Sisters; she was apparently unrelated to them. She was born in Hungary, lived in the UK for a while, and died in South Africa. Some of her songs were definitely in Afrikaans, some in English, some in French—that's all I've been able to verify.

Is it a coincidence that our last guest is from Cape Town?

There is a rifle cartridge called the .22 Eargesplitten Loudenboomer. Evidently the cartridge was named after the song.

Today I exchanged messages with a guy who knew of the cartridge but had never heard of the song.
