Thread Name: Lyr Req: Songs by Stan Freberg
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Stan Freberg Songs
Hmmmm. I wonder what I can find:
See also the crosslinks at the top of the page. I don't think we have "I'm Gettin Nuttin for Christmas," but it should be easy to find. I thought we had St. George and the Dragonet, but I guess not. It was a #1 hit for a month in 1953. was five at the time, but I remember it. Gee, that makes me feel old...
This article says the 1953 "George" was the first of several "George" recordings. Maybe I remember a later one, and I'm NOT that old...
You'll find a brief discography here (click).
In general, I'm reluctant to just post a bunch of songs from any particular performer. There are fan sites that do that, but our emphasis is on traditional music - not to be a dump for lyrics from various songwriters and performers. When you do that, then the copyright cops may have good reason to go after you. If somebody requests a specific song, then that's another matter.
