I think this was a parody of the 1930 hit "There's an Old Spinning Wheel in the Parlor"

THE OLD SPINNING WHEEL

Covered with dust and forgotten Like the face upon the wall There's one souvenir of the days gone by I treasure most of all.

Turn back the years of my childhood As you turn, old spinning wheel Just show me a lane with a barefoot by As shadows softly steal.

CHORUS cho: There's an old spinning wheel in the parlor spinning dreams of the long, long ago Spinning dreams of an old fashioned garden And a maid with her old fashioned beau

Sometimes it seems that I can hear her in the twilight At the organ softly singing "old Black Joe" There's an old spinning wheel in the parlor Spinning dreams of the long, long ago.
