Whenever we go out
The people always shout
There goes John Jacob Jingleheimer Schmidt

    Mine Hoot ,er hast drie ecken,
    Drie ecken,hast mine hoot,
    Und wann er hast kien ecken,
    It woll sind nicht mine hoot.

    We learned such songs and other such from a music teacher,whose country was over taken during ww2. My mother sang them differently,yet the meaning was still the same..
    It was such that at the time there was a great interest in keeping foklsongs alive, in our poor region.We had a great many displaced Germans coming and going through.We learned a great many songs in English. It made no real sense to me at the time what the music teacher was trying to do.
    I do, remember,however the principle would check in from time to time to observe. The music he heard us sing was different, as Mrs. Yeagle would peek outside the door before she taught us such songs.

    Other such songs concerned coal miners such as,

    Drill ye terriers, drill,
    drill ye terriers drill,
    oh it’s work all day,
    for sugar in your tay,
    so drill ye terriers, drill
    so drill ye terriers, drill.
