Abstract/Summary

Abstract/Summary: This is an action song about an Eskimo on a great hunting trip.  The song describes the actions of the Eskimo as he searches for a walrus.  During the “osh-osh-ing-go” verses, the Eskimo is paddling his canoe over icy waters.  During the “ex-ah-cola-mee-shuh-wah-nee” verses, the Eskimo completes the following actions: searching for food, shooting the walrus, attempting to pick up the walrus, skinning the walrus, stirring the walrus stew, eating the walrus stew, throwing up the walrus stew, and falling asleep while snoring loudly.
