Thread Name: Lyr Req: songs about the Kennedy assassination
Subject: Lyr Add: I'M CALLED LITTLE CAROLINE (M Schwartz)
Here's one more for now! It's not an assassination song. BUT it is about the other sibling---Caroline Kennedy.

In 1963 this song showed up. It's by by Milton Schwartz.

I'M CALLED LITTLE CAROLINE (to the tune of "I'm Called Little Buttercup")

I'm called little Caroline, dear little Caroline,
Pampered from morning to dusk,
By Sorenson, Salinger, Stevenson, Schlesinger, Bundy and Dillon and Rusk.

Some others I've slighted but those I've recited,
Stand out like an elephant's tusk,
That's Sorenson, Salinger, Stevenson, Schlesinger, Bundy and Dillon and Rusk.

The names are so varied both maiden and married,
And weekly there's somebody new,
So when I can't keep up I quietly creep up,
And look in the Harvard, "Who's Who."

They say daddy's power just blooms like a flower,
But, still, when you strip off the husk,
There's Sorenson, Salinger, Stevenson, Schlesinger, Bundy and Dillon and Rusk.

So when they are handy I beg them for candy,
And find that they never are brusque,
Not Sorenson, Salinger, Stevenson, Schlesinger, Bundy and Dillon and Rusk!


O.K.----HERE's a CHALLENGE TO ALL MUDCATS!!

WHO ARE Sorenson, Salinger, Stevenson, Schlesinger, Bundy and Dillon and Rusk????

And, no, Bundy is NOT Ted Bundy! And Schlesinger is not Dr. Laura (but she could be related. I wonder?)

This is a great ploy to elicit participation!!
