    The Tune "Marching Through Georgia" is nice and sprightly and is popular all over the world. The English used to greet arriving US troops when they disembarked during WWII .

    And in Japan it is a popular children's song.

    Which, while cute, is just plain wrong somehow. Sort of like hearing Beethoven's 9th as a party cheer
