It sounds like the Dance of the Hours from La Gioconda, which is also what "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh" sounds like.

No, it isn't.

Also Nancy Sinatra sings the "Dance of the Hours' in his song titled "Like I Do"...

The cover is just like the Phillips Records logo.

A swedish artist named Cornelis Wreesvijk has also done a version of this song, and his version is very well-known in sweden, a true classic! This one is a lot catchier though :-)

To be precise, his name is Cornelis Vreeswijk and he was Dutch. However, he moved to Sweden in his teens and became a huge star there, writing and singing his rebellious songs in Swedish. He also had a few Dutch-language hits in Holland, but nothing like his success in Sweden.

Yes correct! Sorry for the misspelling and not mentioning he is a dutchman, but here in Sweden we think of him as a swede :-) He was actually together with my mothers cousin, Anita Strandell :-) He has made a great impact on swedish singer/songwriters and today you can see lots of swedish artists that are inspired mostly by him!
