Subject: RE: Can you NAME THIS TUNE ??-Dont Send my boy...
Joe, the first "Don't Send My Boy..." tune is used in the following song: Just Put Her in the Corner. This was recorded in 1964 at Indiana University.

The same song is used as the final verse Kappa Pin Song found on the ca 1999 Kappa Alpha Psi Black Greek Soundz CD. Another version was sent to me as a MIDI titled Don't Send My Boy to Harvard from a woman who learned it in the mid 1950s in the Navy WAVES.

So we have four examples of the first tune 1927, 1955, 1964 and 1999.

More recordings of the second variant tune later. Time for bed.

PS. The song "Put Her in the Corner" is the same song Ed Cray has listed as "Take Your Boyfriend Round a Corner" to the tune of "Wake the Town and Tell the People" in his Erotic Muse 2nd edition.
