Thanks to those wonderful old-music sites that are popping up on the Internet, I have been listening to a lot of pop tunes, c1910–30. One musical leitmotif that recurs frequently is the "Little Egypt" music, which I sang as a child as… All the girls in France Do the hoochie-coochie dance, And the way they shake, it could really kill a snake. When the snake is dead, they will tie it 'round their head… Now, that can't be right. I mean the lyrics; I don't mean the entire female population of France dancing around with dead snakes tied around their heads. I have never been to France, but I trust that is not the state of affairs there. What are the lyrics to this ditty you heard as a tot? :m: Peace.
