I'm looking for an old song from around the thirties. The lyrics are something like "come get your paper from a kid named Joe," and, or "he's just a kid named Joe.

Yes, it WAS recorded by the Mills Brothers, and by Bing Crosby, and by a number of others.

You'll find information at the Indiana University sheet music collection. The lyrics were by David Mack, music by Jerry Livingston, published in 1938.


JUST A KID NAMED JOE
(David Mack and Jerry Livingston)

Just a kid named Joe,
What his second name is I don't know
He sells the daily papers,
So I buy all my papers
From a kid named Joe.

Let it rain or snow,
He will greet you with a bright "hello."
"Hello, Mister, here's your paper,"
So I buy all my papers
From a kid named Joe.

[bridge]
He keeps hustlin' away
Hustlin' all day,
There is work to be done
And no time to play.
"Extra! Extra! Read the latest news!"
There's a smile on his face
That's a cure for the blues.

Just a kid named Joe,
Makes this world a better place, I know;
And he sells the daily papers,
So I buy all my papers
From a kid named Joe.

[voice changes]
Just a kid named Joe,
What my second name is I really don't know
I just sell the daily papers,
[voice change]
And I buy all my papers
From a kid named Joe.

Just a kid named Joe,
You make this world a better place, I know;
I just sell the daily papers,
[voice change]
And I buy all of my papers
From this kid named Joe.
Let it rain or snow,
I will greet you with a bright "hello."
"Hello, Mister, here's your paper,"
[voice change]
And so I buy all my papers
From this kid named Joe.
