SHo, Sho, Sho, jo jee

Well, there it is Hideo. I'm 43 years old and still remember us singing that back when I was 4, 5, and 6 years old. Someday, I hope to discover its origin and meaning.

Thanks for your reply and consideration.

SweetM, I showed this to my wife who recognized it immediately as a song she had learned when she was a little girl growing up in Takasaki Japan. The song is about a Budist priest dancing with racoons. The part you quoted was the beginning of the song. Below are the words for the first lines as she remembers them and the English translation.

Japanese lines:
Sho sho sho jo ji
Sho jo ji no ni wa wa
Tsu tsu tsukiyo da
Minna dete koi koi koi

English Translation:
Sho jo ji (name of a temple)
moon light on the garden
come out everybody

Regards,
Bob

Awesome!!!!! You would not believe how often in the last 20 years that I've tried to get that info. Thanks so much. Does the Mrs. know any other info or words to the song? I can remember singing more, what seems to be the final verse. I can kind of hear the theme but not remembering the words, if that makes any sense?

Kind of odd.......we moved all over the place when I was growing up. Funny thing is, it appears that you are from MD, and that's where we lived (in a suburb just outside of Baltimore) before the moved to Japan. Anyway, thanks again. A neat way to start my day.
