Subject: Lyr Req: Samantha the Panther

I know it's not a folk song, but Mudcat seems good for those half remembered songs from childhood (or in this case parenthood). 45 years ago when I had young children there was a song on Listen with Mother. About a panther who wanted to know what day it was because it was her birthday on Friday. She run through the jungle asking until someone told her.

I can only remember snatches and the last verse.

Samantha the Panther was having a beautiful dream
......

......
It's my birthday on Friday, I wonder what day this can be

(something about asking a bird who replied ... 'it was ..day I know when I flew over France/ tomorrow is ..day now leave me in peace/ I promised my friends I would meet them in Greece')

Samantha the Panther was happy she'd found out at last
She felt very tired because she'd been running so fast
So after a long drink of milk from a coconut cu-u-up
She went back to sleep, it was Saturday when she woke up.


I'd forgotten that bird verse until I started typing.
My grandchildren now play with the knitted feline called Samantha (which has stripes and spots and a wasp waist from childish hands)

I can't find any anything regarding the song although YouTube has some bits of Listen with Mother online. Also the link above has the song on the vinyl record which seems to be available for a small price.

This song has been annoying me for ages. No-one would believe it was a song. Thank you. :)

Samantha the Panther she couldn't be bothered to move
She said if I run through the jungle then what will that prove?

That's all I remember. She missed her birthday because she was lazy.

I can only remember snatches too...
Samantha the Panther she couldn’t be bothered to move
She said, ‘if I ran through the jungle, now what would that prove?’


Samantha the panther was having a wonderful dream
She dreamt of a party and cakes that were covered in cream
And then she woke up with a jump and she said, ‘goodness me
It’s my birthday on Friday, I wonder what day this can be?’

Samantha the panther ...
...        Monday when I flew over France,
It’s Thursday tomorrow...
I promised my friends I would meet them in Nice

Samantha the panther was happy, she’d found out at last
She felt very tired because she’d been running so fast
And after a long drink of milk from a coconut cup
She went back to sleep…. It was Saturday when she woke up!

Stretched out in the sun whete I am I can peacefully laze
I can’t think of any way better for spending my days
