Subject: RE: BS: origin of 'Polly Want a Cracker?'
Does anyone else remember this song that was used in advertisements for {I think it was} children's shoes?

Pol parrot,
Pol parrot,
they're the shoes you want to buy.
They'll make your feet run faster
as fast as poll can fly.


I would date this from the mid to late 1950s. I hadn't thought of that song in years, but this thread made it pop into my mind.

It's your fault, Little Hawk!
