Comments:
I guess many people are forced to sing this song as kids and eventually get sick of it. In the instrumental portions of this version, the mandolin and the fiddle both seemed to be going back and forth between melody and harmony.

This song featured on the animated sitcom King of the Hill, where little Bobby got in trouble for singing the following lyrics about his Asian girlfriend:

My Connie is a Laotian, My Connie lives next door to me, My Connie is a Laotian, And I have to go take a pee!
