With regard to "falleri fallera," someone in a previous thread mentioned the popular german folk song "Mein Vater War ein Wandersmann." This song also contains falleri fallera. Futhermore, the same tune actually exists in English, and we used to sing it on hikes/field trips, etc. in school. I seem to recall that it started, "I am a happy wanderer."
