Hello -

I've known about Mudcat for several years but haven't accessed it. I'm looking for complete lyrics to a holiday song my mother used to sing and which has come back to me in parts and pieces. Using the Nashville numbering system for melody, this is what I have and what's still missing. Does this sound familiar to anyone? If so, please contact me at meryle.korn at gmail.com. Thanks!

1 3 3 5 /5 8 8 - /            - - brought the - - -
8 6 4 6 /5 - - -/            Jimmy popped the corn
1 3 3 5 /5 8 8 - /          Eloise who liked to tease
7 5 6 4 /5 - - - /          Brought a tooting horn

8 5 5 3 /5 2 2 -/            - - - - /- - -
8 5 5 3 /5 2 2 3/          - - - - /- - - and
1 3 3 5/5 8 8 - /          on that happy Christmas morn
5 3 4 2 /1 - - -/          we had lots of fun.

Thanks for any help you can offer. Joe Hickerson suggested I contact Mudcat because he wasn't familiar with the song or tune. I'm guessing it may have been composed somewhere between 1890s and 1920s or '30s.

Well, I tried my legendary and prodigious search skills on it and....came up with absolutely nothing.

I searched for popped the corn/christmas morn, tooting/tootling horn, and Eloise/tease.

Zilch. Zippo. Nothin'

But I gave it the old college try.

Note that I separated this request from the original thread, since the original thread requested a different song.

Mr. Meryle welcome to Mudcat.

To aid in the search could you approximate:

Geographic location You heard the song...and mother's location of origin?

Year you heard the song?

Sincerely,
Gargoyle

Given your last name...do you think it could have been a playful thing she made up to amuse a child?
