Kate, I was wondering about the same song myself. Here is some info which may help. I was once watching a documentary on WWI and that same song was being played as a march by a military band. So I am wondering if it was originally a British music hall song from the period. Danny did have a strong connection to the UK from his numerous appearance and recordings of similar songs. Let me know if you find anything re the tune.

    Anyone know of a Danny Kaye song on a children's record - lyrics something like, "Abba Dabba Hoo Hoo Ha"? DK sings it with a little girl - all about how when you have trouble, just sing the above and ... more

      Hi, it used to be on Spotify but they took it off. One option is they have it on youtube so download the video from there.

        I actually found this song - on a CD called "Danny Kaye for Children". It's a 1959 recording from MCA Records. I found it on Amazon from a third-party seller - good luck!

          Thanks, Kate. Delightful song. I see now on amazon that others, including children's performers, have recorded the tune as well.
