With Dadai: I've Been Working on the Railroad


Get Flash to see this player.

Description
Woo hoo! Dadai decided to have a little fun so he sang harmony to my halting, terrible version of I've Been Working on the Railroad. I can't believe how well he did. Listen as he follows every hesitant strum on the ukulele. It's a riot. He did it soooo well!

Lyrics
I've been working on the railroad
all the live long day
I've been working on the railroad
just to pass the time away

Can't you hear the whistle blowing?
Rise up so early in the morn
Can't you hear the captain shouting
"Dinah blow your horn!"

Dinah won't you blow?
Dinah won't you blow?
Dinah won't you blow your horn?

Dinah won't you blow?
Dinah won't you blow?
Dinah won't you blow your horn?

Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah
Someone's in the kitchen I know
Someone's in the kitchen with Dinah
strumming on the old banjo

and singing "Fee fi fiddley I oh.
Fee fi fiddley I oh.
Fee fi fiddley I oh!"
Strumming on the old banjo

This is so CUTE!
This is just great! How fun! Now, did you guys record this together? Or did you do a long-distance collab-thing? Because its feel like you're both in the same place singing together, it's very intimate and fun and full of life. I just love this and it's on my ipod. Right NOW!

On a lark...
I grabbed Joanna's original, a few minutes after it posted... added my jibberish and flailing harmonies to the song and sent it to Joanna... accomplished at a distant location 90 miles away via internet.
