My 78 year old mother would like to find a song that was popular when her first child was small. It was about "Little Butch, with the sparkling eyes." She nicknamed her first son that, and it stuck.

Billboard Magazine says that Harry Owens and His Royal Hawaiians (with vocal by Bob Hamlin) recorded a song called LITTLE BUTCH, released as a 78-rpm record, Capitol 20004, around September, 1944, b/w SWEET LEILANI,

ASCAP.com says Harry Owens wrote it.

I haven't heard the song, so that's all I can provide.

(Note that I am reviving a very old thread here.)

I vaguely remember a segment of the lyrics went like this "I can picture the scene very clearly, the long night was over or nearly; it's a boy you can be proud of; 7 pounds, 7 ounces; Little Butch, the thrill of it forever will remain" memory fade "thats the story little Butch, Goodnight"    at this point my memory competely fades sorry

Q. In 1949 when my son was born, I heard a record that I think was called Little Butch. I hope you can help me get a copy of it. Thank you. -- Theresa Serra, Sunrise

A. Little Butch was written in 1949 by band leader and composer Harry Owens, who was the chief exponent of Hawaiian music in the `30s and `40s. I was unable to locate Owens` recording of it, but did find a recording, on tape, by Frankie Masters and his Orchestra, titled Little Butch, The Beach Boy that might be the same tune. It is available at Arnold`s Archives, 1106 Eastwood Ave. SE, East Grand Rapids, Mich. 49506; 1-616-949-1398.
