Subject: FERTILIZER
From: Gene Graham
Date: 12 Jun 97 - 01:51 AM

Still looking for help on FERTILIZER....BMI lists the songs co/writers as Aubrey Freeman and Leo Teel.

AM STILL LOOKING FOR HELP ON LYRICS OF THIS CIRCA 50's NOVELTY TUNE.

    FERTILIZER

    While walking down the street one day
    I met a little fellar;
    When I asked him what his name was; He began to bellar;
    My pappy's name was Ferdinand; My Mammy's name was Liza;
    And so between the two of them; They named me Fertilizer.

    Now Fertilzer had so many other brothers
    He said they used all the names;
    While naming all the others

Memory fails me along about here....

HELP! ANYBODY?

FERTILIZER
Words and music by Aubrey Freeman and Leo Teel
As sung by Leo Teel and His Teel Billies, circa 1951

1. While walking down the street one day down in Alabammy,
I met a little feller who was lost from his mammy.
I stopped to talk to him a while but he was kind of shy.
I asked him what his name was and he began to cry:

CHORUS: My pappy's name is Ferdinand; my mammy's name is Lizer; (Lizer!)
And so between the two of them, they named me Fertilizer.

2. Well Fertilizer had so many other little brothers,
He said they used up all the names while naming all the others,
But he was really happy 'cause he drew so much attention,
The kids gave him a nickname that wouldn't do to mention.

I did call and have a long enjoyable chat with Leo a couple of times before he passed away.

However, Leo's recording of the song was not the one sticking in my
mind. Leo's version was a bit more raucus and rowdy.

The singer in my mind had a smooth voice that reminds me of Rex Allen.

And the beginning lyrics that I recalled and sang and played for many years are the way I first listed them.

While walking down the street one day I met a little fellar
When I asked him what his name was, he began to bellar.

Still looking and hoping.

Gene

It took me 55 years to find the lyrics and a recording of another old song from the mid 40s...

It has only been 15 years since I posted the request for FERTILIZER by

an artist other than LEO TEEL who did write and record FERTILIZER.

And as I stated above, I did contact LEO BY PHONE before he passed

away but he could not recall another artist recording it.

Thanks to all who helped.

Gene
