Songfacts®:

  • With lyrics by the regular team of Karl Kennett and music by Lyn Udall, "Zizzy, Ze Zum, Zum" has rightly been described as a nonsense song. Released by the popular singer John Terrell in 1898, extant recordings are as might be expected not very easy on the ear, but the same can be said for the song itself! >>
