Hello, happy people!

This week, bring us songs with nonsense words in the title, lyrics, bridge, whatever.

We're talking:

  • dialect
  • doggerel
  • onomatopoeia
  • authentic frontier gibberish


Anything you're unlikely to find in a reputable abridged dictionary.

RULES :rulez:

1) video should be original for this season (with the usual exceptions)
2) ukulele featured, other instruments welcome
3) collaborations encouraged
4) originals welcome, instrumentals fine if you give it a scatty title
5) no more than two videos per seasonista per day unless I change my mind
6) start time midnight June 27 Hawaii Standard Time
7) end time 11:59 p.m. July 4 Hawaii Standard Time
8) please comment on others' videos
9) PRIZES from my ever-growing collection of stickers; winners to be decided by me
10) HAVE SOME GOLDERN, ROOTIN-TOOTIN FUN, DAGNAB IT!

Kelly's Word Association Season has more than a day to join. So do it!!

Glad I read carefully! Scat has an entirely different meaning to a naturalist…;)

"It's a crazy little ditty with a swinging tune
A-Lop-Bop-A-Lula, A-Lop-Bam-Boom"

The frim fram sauce and the chfafafafa on the side.

The Frim-Fram Sauce" is a jazz song written by Redd Evans and Joe Ricardel.
In 2002, journalist William Safire said frim-fram sauce was a variant of flim-flamor deceit
and "ussin-fay" was pig Latin for "fussing", meaning "playing about fretfully".
Safire quoted singer Diana Krall on the meaning of "chafafa": "'It's all about sex,' she replied innocently."[

This is a very rough, very quick take of the first song that came into my head

This one came into my mind as soon as the topic was announced during Saturday's Seasonista On Line Get-Together.
