Hi......I printed out a bunch of the Yiddish Nursery Rhymes and took them to
my Yiddish Shmues Kreis (Chat Group).....no one recognized them and altho
they were able to translate the Yiddish words, said that most of the other
words (mainly the first couple of lines) were nonsense syllables.........I
still think that aside >from being childrens' games, these little ditties were
a form of Keyn ain a hura.....warding off the evil eye....ptoo
