Somebody told me their mother used to sing a song titled "Greenwich Village Sue." I found a listing for the song here (click) that says the song was written by Carey Morgan (1885-1960) and Arthur Swanstrom (1888-1940). This page (click) says it was recorded by Dick Robertson and his Orchestra in 1941. This page (click) says the song was published in 1920, but I didn't find it in the Levy Sheet Music Collection.

My resources are halfway around the world from me right now, so I can't find anything more. Can somebody post the lyrics?

My mom use to sing this song for pennies when she was a little girl---

She's my Greenwich Village Sue,
Sweetest gal that I ever knew.
Way down in The Village they all loved her so,
She was the sweetheart of Paradise Row.
Always a girl so true,
Sent down from heaven to you.
Artist drew gold in her beautiful hair,
I know it's gold, because I've seen it there,
She was the sweetheart of Washington Square,
She's my Greenwich Village Sue...

We would all have to get up and sing a song into a mop or a broom for our microphone. My Mom always sang that song---she had a beautiful voice! I miss her so!
How about "Ten Baby Finger's and Ten baby toes" anybody know that one?
All I can remember is

Ten baby finger's and Ten baby toe's
Waiting there for me,
Down in Tennessee.
I never had a
Baby call me Dada--
Oh how glad I'll be,
When I can bounce him on my knee...

That's all I know--I have tried to find the rest--that was a song a best friend's Dad always sang when we "had a few" ---if anyone out there can help, I would sure appreciate it!
Thanks so much!
Greenwich Village Sue(:

Brigham Young University has the sheet music. It is not viewable online. The following information is from their catalog:

MY GREENWICH VILLAGE SUE
Arthur M Swanstrom; Carey Morgan
New York: Jos. W. Stern & Co., 1920.

First line verse: In all Greenwich Village, there isn't a gal half so good looking as my little pal.
First line chorus: My Greenwich Village Sue she's the best pal that I ever knew.
