Well after about fifteen minutes of searching and listening to Discovery channels cool rendition I may have you an answer... check out the live one they did on stage, also pretty cool. LIVELIVE

I LOVE THE WORLD
(Sullivan/Heaton) 1988

Boom di atta boom di atta boom di atta boom!

Cool! I bet that's what it's based on. I knew it had to be based on some old song...thanks! And thanks to your wife as well!

That live version was also cool.

. Well? You gonna let the rest of us know? I didn't recognize it (and will probably be embarrassed when I find out). . I'm with Firebert, it gave me the warm fuzzies. :)

Heh. "boom de ada" is a pretty unique string, you know. Apparently it's a "campfire song" taught to scouts and such. The original seems to be a short little ditty:
I love the mountainsI love the rolling hills,I love the fountains,I love the daffodils,I love the fireside,When all the lights are low.Boom-dee-a-da, Boom-dee-a-da,  (etc)

Rise up Singing (a rather brilliant and useful book of 1200 "folk" songs, not to mention the "teach tapes") has slightly different words, says it's a round with the title "I Love the Flowers" and doesn't give an attribution (which is pretty definitive...)
