This next song I use on Valentine's Day. We'll begin by listing all the silly things that lovers call each other in English, along with the silly sayings found on those heart shaped hard candies. These are used to create Valentines that we send to students in Spanish, French and Japanese classes. My students get some from them in return. The translation process is hectic and often funny. This song just seems to fit right into the silliness that goes with Valentine's Day: KOMM MIT MIR UNTER'M HOLLERHOLLERBUSCH Komm mit mir unter'm Hollerhollerbusch Schnippidi, schnappidi, schnippidi, schnappidi, schnippidi, schnappidi husch Komm mir mir meine suesse, kleine Musch Schnippidi, ... Da schni schna schnacken wir zwei Und jodeln dabei Odalehe, odalehe, odaloe Odalehe, odalehe, odaloe Da schni schna schnacken wir zwei Und jodeln dabei Odalehe, odalehe, odaloe (not sure of the spelling for yodeling part) Ed Curtis Corvallis High School Corvallis, OR
