I remember it as Belle (beautiful)… you may want to check with Mary who brought it to Singing Alive. Or you may want to sing Belly… let me know if you learn something sense it is a womb~n~song– or I will let you know!
yes, It apparently is from an island off of New Zealand. The words got alliterated into english as ‘Belly Mama’. Anyway, I recorded Mary Dennison teaching me the original song, with all the different parts, and variations. Anyone who want to learn it can ask and I’ll email them the recording. . MT Xen
