Riki Tiki Tomba

Riki Tiki Tomba

This is a fun song, though you have to listen to the song to get the rhythm going. I don’t know the origins and I can’t find much about it online. It’s a repeat after me song, where the girls sing the lines back after a counselor starts the song.

Tomba Tomba (repeat)
A riki tiki tomba (repeat)
A moosa moosa moosa (repeat)
Wayla wayla wayla wayla (repeat)

Repeat the first three lines louder and louder each time, but do the “Wayla” do it very softly

On the final time, sing the first part soft and the “Wayla” loud.

Check out this video to get the rhythm! They do it the opposite of how I learned it, getting quieter each time it’s repeated. To each his own 🙂
