I'm looking for a recording or sheet music of this old gem.

I have several lyrics and can do the chorus OK, but need the melody for the intro verses.

Can anyone help?

Thanks.....Tiger

Groucho Marx recorded this song. (He also sang it in one of the Marx Brother's old movies from the 30's.

MCA recently released a cd called "Here's Groucho" MCAD-20847 with 10 of Groucho's best loved songs on it. That may have it on.

I know for sure that the double-album recorded live in 1974 entitled "An Evening with Groucho" had Groucho performing that song for his audience in Carnagie Hall.

Can you share the lyrics, please?

My mum sang this song to me when I was tiny, and I honestly believed she'd made it up! Another childhood illusion shattered!

Thanks

Valerie

I faintly remember Groucho doing this, but think it was only the chorus. Can anyone recall the film? I've got the lyrics but need the music for the intro verses.

A verse or so is also sung in the movie "Philadelphia Story", with Katherine Hepburn and Jimmy Stewart. It appears near the beginning, sung by a a child actress whose name I have forgotten.

Check http://copper.ucs.indiana.edu/~jbmorris/lyrics.html This list of "demented lyrics" contains, I believe, some background comment on the song which includes the name of the movie in which Marx sang it.
