Music of My Childhood`
Other kids grew up with "The Wheels on the Bus," "Old McDonald's Farm," etc.

We Italian kids listened to this:

Pepino the Italian Mouse

Pepino's Friend Pasquale

What Did Washington Say When He Crossed the Delaware?

Please, Mr. Columbus

"Washington" is one of my all-time favorite songs. By the way, what George is saying in Italian is "I'm cold, I'm hungry, I'm cold, I have no clean underwear." LOL.

I read a website once that said Lou Monte's songs were insulting to Italians. My Italian family didn't think so! (Huh! The Sopranos is still so acclaimed—and that's not insulting to Italians? Gimme a break...)
