Subject: Lyr Req: It's a boy, it's a boy
From: Tattie Bogle

Now we have a new 7th in line to the UK throne, following the announcement that a boy has been born to Meghan and Harry, and this old song from the 50s? 60s? leapt into my head:
"It's a boy, it's a boy, it's a bonny bouncing boy,
There's never been such a boy was born before...."
At which point my memory fades... Does anyone else remember it, who sang it, more words? The chorus finished up with "It's a boy, it's a boy, it's a boy!!!!!"
I have searched the DT, YouTube and Google, with no results at all, apart from a ref in one book to a new father singing it as he weaved his way back from the pub following the birth of his son. (Not the trad song "The Bonny Boy"!)

And Where is the poem about The taxes must

You beat me to it, Jim.
Apparently one paper is thinking of baby names that link the USA and the UK together. Eg for girls, so bad guess, Eleanor (of Aquitaine and Roosevelt). Suggestions for linking names provided by readers included 'Iraq War', 'Tesco Walmart' and 'Cambridge Analytica'.
Any other bright ideas?

Wo Blair?

Sorry for not responding to your links earlier Johnny Jay: no, not that one: older than The Who. I'm thinking someone like Doris Day, Alma Cogan, Connie Francis - that sort of era. It's still an earworm since I first posted the request!

The book reference of the Dad singing it after his child was born gives the year of said birth as 1958. ( from the book: Because of You I Live with my Passions - by Di Joseph.)
By strange coincidence, this birth took place in my home town of Edinburgh!
