A Session With Uncle Sidney - III - Sings A "Winky-Tooden" Song

A poem by James Whitcomb Riley

O here's a little rhyme for the Spring- or Summer-time -
An a-ho-winky-tooden-an-a-ho! -
Just a little bit o' tune you can twitter, May or June,
An a-ho-winky-tooden-an-a-ho!
It's a song that soars and sings,
As the birds that twang their wings
Or the katydids and things
Thus and so, don't you know,
An a-ho-winky-tooden-an-a-ho!

It's a song just broken loose, with no reason or excuse -
An a-ho-winky-tooden-an-a-ho!
You can sing along with it - or it matters not a bit -
An a-ho-winky-tooden-an-a-ho!
It's a lovely little thing
That 'most any one could sing
With a ringle-dingle-ding,
Soft and low, don't you know,
An a-ho-winky-tooden-an-a-ho!
