How many of you guys sung this song in your youth?

I bet most of you guys can not agree to the lyrics even if you tried, so if ya know a different version, give us the lines! If ya don't know another version, then play along and help us write the definitive version of this glorious song!

Magdalena Hagdalena Ookatalka Walkatalka Oka Poka Noka said:

Chorus (sung after every line):Oh Magalina Hagalina Ooka Toka Oka Noka Poka was her name (clap clap)

She had 20 hairs on top of her head, 10 were alive and 10 were dead
Her feet were just like bathroom mats, twice as furry and just as flat
She was shaped like a record, what a sight to see, 78,45 and 33
In the middle of her face she had a nose, shaped like a faucet and dripped like a hose
She had 2 eye in the middle of her head, one was purple and the other was red
She had 2 hips like sailing ships, one stood still while the other took trips
She had 12 teeth, or so the story goes, eight in her mouth and 4 in her nose

For more lyrics of it check here... hagalina magalina

Either way, what's your version/line (made up or otherwise)...

Magalina Hagalina Ooka Toka Woka Toka Oka Moka Poka was her name
She had two teeth in the middle of her mouth, one pointed north and the other pointed south
Magalina Hagalina Ooka Toka Woka Toka Oka Moka Poka was her name
She had two feet like a bathroom mat, everyone wondered how they got like that
Magalina Hagalina Ooka Toka Woka Toka Oka Moka Poka was her name

A two ton truck hit Magalinaaaa, Poor old man had to buy a new machine!
Magalina Hagalina Ooka Toka Woka Toka Oka Moka Poka was her name

Never heard of it. Are you sure the two of you aren't hitting the cooking sherry too hard? ^_^

I never sang this but I think I've heard parts of it before. The chorus doesn't ring a bell but the verse lines do.

Actually, Q had never heard of it either lol. He looked it up when I started singing it to Perrin the other day. I couldn't remember all of the verses so we had him look it up. Come to find out, there are no set verses! There are so many versions of the song it's ridiculous. People just make them up for fun ^_^ My post earlier was the song as I remembered it as a child. Mama hasn't even heard of it haha.

Nah, I have to agree with Caliban about that cooking sherry theory. Q strikes me as someone who would down a few bottles of that stuff.^_^

Hagalen Magalen, Boomsta Wusta, Hugga Mugga Wugga was her name...
She had 10 hairs on her head, half were alive and the other half dead.
-
She had two teeth in her mouth, one pointed north and the other pointed south.
-
She had two ears on her head, one named Bob and the other named Fred.
-
She had two warts on her knee, one served coffee and the other served tea.
-
She had nine fingers on her hands, she lost one in the marching band.

I enjoy the name Magdalena Hagdalena Ookatalka Walkatalka Oka Poka Noka much more.
Coincidence is but one of the many fictions clung to by men.

I read a book once on "kid lore" - rhymes and songs of this sort - and there is generally a lot of variation by region. Looking it up, I see this is a Scout song, so there at least was a chance I might have heard it, but I don't recall that I ever did.

Nalyd, maybe you've heard of Slim Cessna's Auto Club? they sing a version - Magalina Hagalina (no clue what they are saying though)


Obligatory song line: (made up)

She had two shirts that she would wear, one was nice the other with a tear

She had two warts on her chin. One stuck out and the other stuck in.

She had three hairs growin' out of her ear. Two kept it warm and the other could hear.

Kwitcherbitchin, 'cos I seen the
Legendary Magdalena
Sunday comics, Dalai Lama
Fabulous freak and kindertrauma
I seen her at Dazbog sipping
Poor hick boyscouts, they was tripping
Not a gimpy geek, you guys
Candy-amber were her eyes
Purty like to wreck some homes
35 .... with cueball dome!
She was primping bright and early
Had a wig of rocker curly
Saw her next week, all spruced up
Making Boyscouts all juiced-up!
Centerfold-ish, heat in bloom
Cougar queen of locker rooms!

Maggie had a spotted dress
In which she danced the polkas
Her glass eyes glinting with delight
Just like two stella-pulsars

Her character so powerful
T'would melt the hardest steel
And so commanding to make even
Ozymandius or Comrade Putin kneel.

She lived simply in her freedom
On bread, Gorgonzola and Edam
And drank cheap wine with a sparkle
Which she bailed straight from the barrel.

But her singing voice so trilling
T'would make Nightingale blush
The forest and the lands all thrilling
The chanson gave such spellbound hush.

When Maggie sang her songs so sweet
Such tales of love and war
No other sounds broke the treat
No sounds were made to mar

For Friends she made and used to know
Never heard songs so awesome
All had died long ago
For Maggie's breath was poison.

So our Magda who's appalling breath
One whiff of that fouled air meant death
Put off even Ferryman and his tricks
So no need for transport over Styx.  

And this poor fiend was forced to wander
Up hill, down dale and way over yonder
Suffocating and killing all within her reach
Until one day she reached the beach.

She found a boat with a furlèd sail
Wallowing and waiting for a gale
Magda boarded, opened her mouth and
Even Wind feared death and blew them south.

Magda wandered through night and day
Killing all who came her way
And at last in desperation
She had a fine inspiration

"A mask is what I need" she thought
"With a filter to catch the draught
And canister to hold the gas
Where not a whiff allowed to pass".

So our Madga became the inventor
Of the gas mask - the unsung creator.
But the canisters containing her air
Held the mustard gas used in warfare.

Time passed and Magda grew older
Her gas mask hurt and began to moulder
She flung it off one day in haste
Because she invented tooth paste.

And also in her creative rush
She invented the small-head toothbrush
While she was at it: a seat with a hole
To be placed atop the lavatory bowl.

Now it is long past the time
To recall, that like fine wine
Is Magda - maligned a great deal  
But still a Woman (who invented the wheel).
