Dennis Day recorded it in '47, I think. It's a fun song. Anybody got the words?

Well, it's for sale on eBay.

The 1947 sheet music has it titled Ya, Sure - You Betcha (Ay Ban Tank I Do), written by Sandy Oliver, Paul Herrick, and Sid Solomon; and recorded by Dennis Day.

I thought I'd heard a reissued recording of this on a Dennis Day or Jo Stafford collection, but I couldn't find a listing for it on Amazon.

I've got a recording of it, but I can't make out a lot of the words. I believe there's an LP or something like that up on Ebay or Amazon, but I didn't really pay attention, since I already have the song. *looks thoughtful* If someone wants to hear it, go here:

It's the first song, I think. These old Dennis Day programs had two songs per episode--one before the program, and one during.

Ya Sure — You Betcha (Ay Ban Tank Ay Do)

Hilda, oh Hilda, Ay ban tank you're grand.
Will you oh will you let me hold your hand?
If Ay should ask you, do you love me too?
Say ya sure — you betcha. Ay ban tank Ay do.
Oh Ay do, yes Ay do. By golly, by yimminy Ay do.
If Ay should ask you, do you love me too?
Say ya sure — you betcha. Ay ban tank Ay do.

In Wisconsin Ole Johnson
Fell in love with a sweet Swedish miss, Hilda Swanson.
He wooed her, he pursued her.
From Wisconsin her Johnson sings Swanson this song:

Hilda, oh Hilda, Ay ban tank you're grand.
Will you oh will you let me hold your hand?
If Ay should ask you, do you love me too?
Say ya sure — you betcha. Ay ban tank Ay do.
Oh Ay do, yes Ay do. By golly, by yimminy Ay do.
If Ay should ask you, do you love me too?
Say ya sure — you betcha. Ay ban tank Ay do.

Hilda, oh Hilda, let this Swedish boy
Thrill you until you are yumping with yoy
There at the preacher's when he says will you,
Say ya sure — you betcha. Ay ban tank Ay do.
Oh Ay do, yes Ay do. By golly, by yimminy Ay do.
There at the preacher's when he says will you,
Say ya sure — you betcha. Ay ban tank Ay do.
