Kukeriku...Kukeriki...

Title

Kukeriku...Kukeriki...

Date

1949

Description

[Note from tape log on outside of tape box for the original, spliced tape, not included on the tape log of the dupe:] My childhood in Montreal, Canada, is closely bound with my Yiddish education in a secular Jewish school. Many of these rhymes stem from that environment, as well as the one at home, where my Bessarabian-born mother, shared her own childhood memories of games and rhymes and taunts and teasers, with me. Blessed with a retentive memory...I later picked up many more from my informants. Ms. Soyer in English, introduces slightly different version, thus two Yiddish versions. 41842
