I was thinking about the new title of my blog this weekend. I was wondering how many people out there knew instinctively where the title originated from. How many other people knew the song? Where did you learn it? And what version did you learn?
I just recently discovered that there are so many different versions. Who knew?
So if you know this song…let me know. Share with me where you learned it and what version you learned. I think that’d be fun.
Here’s the version that was taught to me and my sister by my parents. We used to sing it on car trips (both short and long). It’s a great memory for me.
Flea, Fly, Flow
Kumalata Kumalata Kumala Vista
No, no, no, not la vista
