Subject: Song lyric

Written By: snozberries on 12/03/05 at 11:26 am

Question:

In song "I've Been Working on the Railroad"  There is a line that says

Someone's in the kitchen with Dianah
Someone's in the kitchen I know
Someone's in the kithcen with Dinah
Strumming on the old banjo

The question is....

Is the singer aware of the fact that someone is in the kitchen with Dinah
or
do they know the person in the kitchen with Dinah

and isn't it possible that Dinah is alone in the kitchen and she alone is strumming the old banjo

Dinah cannot be alone in the kitchen for she is with someone.

I will ask my daughter if any of the other verses give a clue.
