Subject: Go home, your mother wants you
From: GUEST,Jack Sprocket

Please don't reply with the Jimmy Dureante stuff:

"G'wan home yer mudder's callin'
Yer Fadder fell into duh garbage can.
Gwan home yer mudder's callin'
They come to collect yer old man."

which isn't related.

My mother used to sing a different song, that ran:

Go home, your mother wants you,
Go home, she's calling you,
Tell her, I love another,
And I'll never never ever marry you.

Go home, go home,
I can hear yor mother calling,
You can take you bat and ball in,

Go home.....
etc.

I can't remember if she sang any more, she knew thousands of scraps of songs.

This may be it On Amazon, but I can't find a recording of it.

Anyone else heard it?

Reply to Mitzi, Yes, I remember that song, it’s from the 1940s (yes, I’m an oldie!) I can remember You can take your bat and ball in, I’ve got Frank Sinatra calling. It had quite a catchy tune.

Several websites, including Sheet Music Warehouse, are offering to sell sheet music for a song called "GO HOME (YOUR MOTHER WANTS YOU)", written by Carl & Roger Yale, Jimmy Lalley, and Joe Ferrie, and apparently sung by Tommy Brandon, published in London, 1946.

Another version of the sheet music shows Sam Browne and Mary Naylor as the singers.

Click the link above to see the sheet music cover. I have been unable to find lyrics, recordings, or sheet music images. The only libraries listed at WorldCat.org that hold the sheet music are the British Library, London, and Plymouth Central Library, Plymouth.

It was weirdly difficult for me to find (I could only access it by clicking a link found on Google and having it redirect me, not by searching Spotify), but a song called Go Home by Carl Yale and Primo Scala and his Accordion Band is available on Spotify, via the album Nimbus Record & Ray Crick present: Retrospective - Primo Scala (2013). It ultimately comes from a 1947 Decca single (click). Though it's the same song, it likely only used the first stanza and chorus of probably 2-4 more, if it's anything like the sheet music of most pop songs from those days I've seen. Here's my transcription:

Johnny Brown loved Mary when they were both sixteen
Mary was contrary, a saucy village queen
She loved the men about the town, had no time for Johnny Brown
And every time he came her way she'd look at him and say:

"Go home, your mother wants you
Go home, she's calling you
Tell her I love another
And I'll never never never marry you
Go home, go on home
You can take your bat and ball in
I've got Frank Sinatra calling
Go home, your mother wants you
Go home, she's calling you
Tell her I love another
And I'll never never never marry you"

I have been playing this sheet music for many years, though I could never source the actual song. However, the first first chorus is is available on YouTube. The verses on the sheet music and the verses are terrific. So typical of the 40’s

I don't know the song, but I'll always remember back in the '60's when the neighbour's young boy was at our back door talking and talking to my Mother and she told him, straight faced, gently and earnestly, "go home, your Mother wants you", and he believed her, turned and went back home. :-D
