The House that Jack Built! I’ve been thinking it was similar to the Woman who Swallowed a Fly, and just realized what comparison I really wanted to make.
actually the italian version for this popular song is from Angelo Branduardi, Alla Fiera dell’Est; you can listen it here: http://youtu.be/wnq0qEKvtrA
I’ve been thinking… maybe the cat that eats the goat isn’t a housecat, but a big cat? Lion? Tiger? Something like that?
“I’ve seen fire, and I’ve seen rain….”
SimoneGallina, in the 80s, there was an Israeli song that used melody of Alla Fiera Dell’Est and incorporated the original Aramaic lyrics, along with original lyrics, and a comment about the vicious cycle of violence in the song and in life.
