Esta foi a primeira música que eu ouvi em outra língua que não o italiano e o português.
Eu devia ter uns 4 ou 5 anos e jamais esqueci.
Quem chegou cantando-a foi o meu tio José.
"K-K-K-Katy" was a popular World War I-era song written by Geoffrey O'Hara in 1917 and published in 1918. The sheet music advertised it as "The Sensational Stammering Song Success Sung by the Soldiers and Sailors". The song tells the story of Jimmy, a young soldier "brave and bold" who stuttered when he tried to speak to girls. Finally he managed to talk to Katy, the "maid with hair of gold". The chorus is what he spoke:
- K-K-K-Katy, beautiful Katy,
- You're the only g-g-g-girl that I adore;
- When the m-m-m-moon shines,
- Over the c-c-c-cowshed,
- I'll be waiting at the k-k-k-kitchen door.
