Hi Abby,

Got a question for you. Can you tell me what a "zipper" song is?

Thanks,

Karen Rodgers

Quoting Azizi

from Peter Berryman's &quot;Whither Zither' blog:

&quot;I'm referring to zipper songs which are known as such because their lyrics
for the most part don't vary from verse to verse except for a spot where
replacable words or phrases can be &quot;zipped&quot; into and out of the song, like
the animals in Old MacDonald. Or like the activities in the song Ain't It a
Shame which I learned years ago, along with many other wonderful zipper
songs, from a Leadbelly's Last Sessions LP:

Ain't it a shame to [go fishin'] on a Sunday, ain't it a shame. (repeat)
/Ain't it a shame to [go fishin'] on a Sunday, When you got Monday,
Tuesday, Wednesday/ Oh, Thursday Friday Saturday, ain't it a shame.&quot;
============================================================ =========
Or any cumulative song. Or my favorite children's car driving song, Jenny
Jenkins. Or those Seeger-singalong songs - Down by the Riverside, etc.
Must be a bunch in Rise Up Singing.

BTW All, I'm in Raleigh, NC now. Don't bother to visit me in Florida
anymore. Visit here.

I believe, in fact, that Pete Seeger invented the term. IIRC, on one
of his records, introducing &quot;Union, union are we&quot;, he seems to take
credit for it.
