                          "Who Dat?"
                          lyrics from 1937:
                          Who dat up there who's dat down there
                          Who dat up there who dat well down there
                          Who's dat up there, sayin' who's dat down there
                          When I see you up there well who's dat down there
                          Who dat inside who's dat outside
                          Who's dat inside who dat well outside
                          Who's dat inside, singin' who's dat outside
                          When I see up there well who's dat out there
                          Button up your lip there big boy
                          Stop answerin' back
                          Give you a tip there big boy
                          Announce yourself jack
                          Who dat up there who's dat down there
                          Who dat up there who dat, well down there
                          Who's dat up there, singin' who's dat down there
                          When I see you up there you bum
                          Well who's dat down there
                          Who dat
                          Bird is the word.....
                          Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. H. L. Mencken US editor (1880 - 1956)
