From: kharding@lamar.ColoState.EDU (Karol Harding)

version of Misirlou.  I'll still experimenting with it -
version1 is for steel strings, version 2 (untested)is lowered
an octave for nylon strings.  lyrics follow.

I also have the english words if anyone wants (there are no 
foreigh words except a spanish translation)

MISIRLOU

This is a very pretty greek/middle eastern sounding piece which
is really an American piece written in the 1950's for folkdancers.
It accompanies the dance of the same name, usually done in 9/8.

In other words, its the original, not the Pulp fiction song.
By the way, its mostly played of violin.
