: Louis remembers his dad singing little snatches of this funny song while messing around in the house. The first verse stuck in his head and later he discovered more verses that outlined a classic story of thwarted interspecies love - a true Shakespearean tragedy. We bring this tale to life with the help of a Japanese instrument–the Otamatone–in the hands of world master Michael Thomas Connolly. The whole family, including young daughters Kora and Zoë (8 and 5), join in the memorable chorus.
