  1. I learned this fun song to sing at church camp, many years ago. We sang “roll ‘em down you Zula Warriors,” one group chanted, “Chief, Chief, Chief, Chief” while the other sang the melody. I was watching a program on TV tonight and heard a guy singing the chorus and just had to google to find out more about its history. Thank you for this information!❤️
