SING SONG SCUPPERNONG

Words and music to ""a capful of old time tunes. . . full of chestnuts, and full of prunes,"" and illustrated with cut paper silhouettes that leave no doubt about the unserious intent. Some of the songs rely on puns (""I Want to Go to Morrow"") or nonsense words (""Zizzy, ze zum, zum"") and others on semi-naughty ones (there's I. B. Dam and U. B. Dam and ""The Whole Dam Family"") or insults (if you believe this ""You Are Dumber Than a Horse""). Keeping it simple and silly, Hardendorff reaches back to her Mississippi childhood and all the way down to ""Where Was Moses When the Lights Went Out,"" but camp and other groups will probably find that there are a few giggles left in the cap.
