Yvonne wrote me looking for two songs…
I’m looking for two songs I used to sing with my children and would like to sing them for my new grandchild but can’t seem to find them anywhere. They are Canadian (I think). One song is LOOKING FOR THE OGOPOGO, FUNNY LITTLE OGOPOGO etc. and the other one is I WANT TO BLOW MY HORN BUT NO ONE WILL COME NEAR ME, etc.
I live in Australia but a tape or CD would work over here. Do you know of where I could purchase these songs?
I haven’t been able to find a CD with these songs on it looking around the internet. I have been able to find the lyrics to one of the songs Yvonne is searching for called The Ogo-pogo:
One fine day in Hindustan,
I met a funny little man
With googly eyes and lantern jaws;
With a new silk hat and some old plus-fours
When I said to that quaint old chap;
Why do you carry that big steel trap
That butterfly net and that old gun?
He replied, Listen here my son.
“I’m looking for the Ogopogo.
The funny little Ogopogo.
His mother was an earwig,
His father was a snail
I’m going to put a little bit of salt on his tail
I want to find the Ogopogo,
While he’s playing on his old banjo
The Lord Mayor of London,
The Lord Mayor of London
The Lord Mayor of London wants
To put him in the Lord Mayor’s show.”
The other song, with the line “I WANT TO BLOW MY HORN BUT NO ONE WILL COME NEAR ME”, I can’t find at all!
If anyone can help with the lyrics and/or with any information about finding a musical CD with these songs on it, please comment below.
