Thread Name: Lyr/Tune Req: My Yiddishe Momme (Yellen, Pollack)
Subject: RE: My Yiddishe Momma
And pray tell, wich schmatlzy singer at a Borscht Belt Hotel in the 1940-1960s did not end a set with that number to get a tear in the eye of weekenders? Now--all together let us go for some Cha Cha lessons---or perhaps play Simple Simon.
I suppose that type of song, seriously, is in many ethnicities---I think here of Mother MacRea. (spelling?)
