Oleanna

Oleanna
(nursery rhymes and trad. Norweigan song, arr. L. Berkner)


Guitar and vocal: L. Berkner
Bass: Adam Bernstein

There is something so special about this melody and the sound of the word Oleanna together. Thanks to Peter Seeger for bringing it to the U.S. and for personally helping me to get it on this album.


Ole-oleanna, Ole-oleanna
Ole-ole-ole-ole-ole-oleanna

Hickory dickory dock
The mouse went up the clock
The clock struck one and the mouse ran down
Hickory dickory dock
Tick tock

Ole-oleanna…

Jack and Jill went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down and broke his crown
And Jill came tumbling after

Ole-oleanna…

Hey diddle diddle the cat and the fiddle
The cow jumped over the moon
The little dog laughed to see such sport
And the dish ran away with the spoon

Ole-oleanna…

Diddle diddle dumpling my son John
Went to bed with his stockings on
One shoe off and the other shoe on
Diddle diddle dumpling my son John

Ole-oleanna…

Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall
Humpty Dumpty had a great fall
And all the king's horses and all the king's men
Couldn't put Humpty together again

Ole-oleanna…
