I glommed this from an old Kweskin Jug Band LP.
I think I have the chords figured out below, but it sounds as if I'm-a missin one or two somewhere.
Does anyone have some guidance for a poor struggling beginner?
PAPAS ON THE HOUSETOP
1Baby's in the cradle, brothers gone to town
Mama told Papa be quiet as a mouse
So Papa climbed up on top of the house
Made a lot of whoopee, made a lot of noise
Stood up and cheered with the rest of the boys
Sister's in the parlor trying on a gown
Mama's in the kitchen messin' all around
Papa's on the housetop and won't come down.
