tikki tikki tembo
As I was cleaning up my room, I came across some of the Christmas presents I brought home from CA and hadn’t put away yet. One of them was the Tikki Tikki Tembo book. I had told my mother-in-law that I was starting to collect some of the childhood books that I had as a kid to be able to read to my kids. So she got me copies of 5 of E and Craig’s fav childhood books - isn’t that the sweetest?
Anyhow, so I remember having a record of Tikki tikki tembo when I was little, so I skimmed through the book. I *swear* that the story on my record was somewhat different! This book calls him Tikki tikki tembo-no sa rembo-chari bari ruchi-pip peri pembo. I am not sure how to spell my version, since its been YEARS since I listened to it, but here’s my best guess: Tikki tikki tembo-no sa rembo-oo ma moochi-gamma gamma goochi. And they called him Long-name-no-can-say in my record. But there’s no mention to that in this book.
Does anyone have memories of this as a kid? My siblings are backing me up, but I haven’t gone to my mom’s house to dig through the records.... maybe we just made this all up :giggle:
