Skidamarink or Skinnamarink is a popular children's song. Originally titled "Skid-dy-mer-rink-adink-aboomp" or "Skiddy-Mer-Rink-A-Doo", the initial version of the song was written by Felix F. Feist (lyrics) and Al Piantadosi (music) for the 1910 Charles Dillingham Broadway production "The Echo." Since the title is gibberish, it has had various spellings over the years.
The song began appearing on many song collections for children's shows in the 1980s. The most popular versions were by the Australian show Bananas in Pyjamas, and the Canadian show The Elephant Show.
Skidamarink a-dink, a-dink,
I love you. (2x)
I love you in the morning,
And in the afternoon;
I love you in the evening,
And underneath the moon.
Oh, skidamarink a-dink, a-dink,
I love you.
