Subject: God Bless The Postman...
From: Jukebox
Date: 15 Jul 01 - 01:13 PM

As a kid I had a children's 78 speed recording of a song that went something like this:

God bless the postman who brings the mail
and bless the cowboy out on the trail.
Bless the man who waves to me when the train goes by
and all the pilots flying through the sky.

I think it might have been by Bobby Driscoll or some child singer. I have the melody in my head, but would like to find all the correct words. Can anyone help?

WOW Jukebox!!!!! You are REALLY stretching me here!!! I haven't thought of this in YEARS!!! My MUCH older brother had this when he was a kid.....I can't remember all of it. Maybe between us, we can fill in the blanks.

God bless the postman
Who brings the mail
And bless the cowboys
Out on the trail
Bless the man who waves to me
When the train goes by
Bless all the pilots
Riding through the sky

Bless every spaceman on my TV set
Bless all the .........
Please don't forget
Bless Mommy and bless Daddy
who come each time I call
God bless the folks I love
God bless them all.
Bless the circus acrobats

Somewhere in there is the line
Bless the circus acrobats
And never let them fall

Whew! Thanks for the memories! KT

Oops! That circus acrobat line does not belong there. I think it's part of a second verse. The line that gets me is "bless every space man on my TV set." Tells you how old that song is! Have fun with it! KT

Thanks so much KT! I think the second verse goes: "Bless all the spacemen on my tv set And bless the servicemen...please don't forget."

I had a red plastic 78 speed recording of this, but it got lost through the years. I would give a pretty penny to get a copy somewhere, but can't imagine where to begin looking.

Thanks again for your help. -Jukebox

Oh, by the way...I wore out many needles on my little record player listening to that record and others. We're talking about 45-50 years ago! Yikes!

Okay, jukebox. After the servicemen, it's,
please don't forget,
bless the circus acrobats,
and never let them fall.
God bless the folks I love, God bless them all.

Then I think there is an instrumental break, (which quite conveniently explains why neither of us can remember lyrics here), and then the mom's voice comes in and says, "Anyone else dear?" Then he goes into
"Bless Mommy and bless Daddy,
who come each time I call.
God bless the folks I love,
God bless them all.

I looked for tyou on some of the Bobby Driscoll websites, but couldn't find it. I'll let you know if I do. KT

I think you've got it! I remember the mother saying that. The melody has never left me. Now that I have the words, I can sing it to my grandkids. I may be wrong about the artist. I tried looking up Bobby as well. Thanks, KT

Yes, it's a tune and a song I always loved when I was little. It was the first one I would reach for when we pulled out the old box of kiddie records.

In your searching, you might want to try "God Bless Us All." I think that may be the real title. Your grandkids are lucky to have you! KT

I just had this song pop into my head today and thought about googling it. I can't believe I found all these others looking for it too! My mom taught it to me when I was a child and then got the record. Thanks all of you for filling in the blanks that I had. Anyone remember Little Toot the tugboat? Maybe it was being with my grandkids this holiday that brought it back.

Hi Susan.
Here we go again...."Little Toot was just a tug....just a happy little tug, and he came from a line of tugboats fine and gay! But it seems that Little Toot, he just didn't giver a hoot...." Yep! It was in the same box of old records and another favorite of the kids in my family back then. I live on the water now and see lots of tugs on a regular basis. Guess what song runs through my head when I do?

oops....Make that "he came from a line of tugboats fine and brave.

But it seems that Little Toot, he just didn't give a hoot.
Though he tried to be good, he just could not behave."

My mom always called it the Postman Song. And now that I'm the father of a beautiful little girl, I find myself wanting to sing it to her, and while the melody never left me (either), I was so happy to find this thread. Thanks everyone and God bless.

Here's a little more, maybe the whole thing:


BLESS US ALL
(lyrics by Tom Murray, music by Tony Burrello)

God bless the postman, who brings the mail.
And bless the cowboys, out on the trail.
Bless the man who waves to me, when the train goes by.
Bless all the pilots, riding through the sky.

Bless every space man, on my TV set.
And bless our servicemen. Please don't forget.
Bless the circus acrobats; please never let them fall.
God bless the folks I love; God bless us all.

[instrumental break]

(Mom's voiceover, speaking) "Anyone else, Darling?"
(Child singing response)

Bless Mommy and bless Daddy, who come each time I call.
God bless the folks I love; God bless us all.


Recorded on Barbour Records, 1953
© Brewster Music Publishing

Recorded by 6-year-old Brucie Weil, and by a number of other child singers - note especially the Jimmy Boyd recording.

Lyrics combined from the Brucie Weil recording and from:

and
Life Magazine, August 31, 1953 (good story here****)

Thanks! Another great song we can do in our Sat. Night service.

Joe, why'd you leave out the choral passage in the Boyd recording?

God bless the postman, who brings the mail.
And bless the cowboys, out on the trail.

chorally: God bless everybody, and help us to be true
Bless each and every one of us in all the things we do.

Bless Mommy and bless Daddy who come each time I call.
God bless the folks I love; God bless us all.

Well, I wasn't able to find sheet music, but it appears to me that the Brucie Weil record is the earliest, and most likely to be the definitive version of the song.
The "mommy" has a two-line introduction to the song on the Weil record - I admit I left that out.

I was looking for the words to this song and found this thread. I have a 33 1/3 rpm record from Peter Pan Records with this song on it. Right now I cannot use my record player but can remember the tune. The name of the record is Children's Songs of Reverence. Apparently it is performed by the Peter Pan Orchestra and Chorus. It has these songs on it - Lord's Prayer, Jesus Loves Me, Angels in the Sky, Savior Teach Me Day by Day, Rock of Ages, Jesus Tender Shepherd Hear Me, He, Stand Up Stand Up for Jesus, God Bless Us All, Onward Christian Soldiers, Because, and Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep. I can't find a recording date. I loved this record as a child.

I have thought of this song for years and asked many others if they remembered it-never found anyone who did. What a delight to find it today. For some reason I always remembered it as God Bless the Men I love-God bless them all. Guess I was remembering incorrectly. Now to Google Miss Ding Dong School (or was it Bell)

The singer of that song was a redheaded kid named Jimmy Dean. Not the sausage Jimmy Dean, but another, and I can't find out anything about him. When I was a kid I used to sing that song all the time, even with accompaniment, and I loved it.

I need to do a P.S. and correct myself. The singer of the song was a redheaded kid named Jimmy Boyd, not Jimmy Dean. JIMMY BOYD. He then recorded I SAW MOMMIE KISSING SANTA CLAUS.

Found this on the www:

"God Bless Us All" was by Bobby Dixon. It was, indeed, on the Peter Pan label...on a black vinyl 78 RPM record. It was released in 1953."

To be somewhat corny...I have had this song running through my head every once in a while for the longest time and finally remembered to look for it today. I'm 68 and remember falling in love with Nancy Rogerman at Hanstein Elementary School in the eastside of Detroit MI after hearing her sing this song at several school assemblies and talent shows! What a beautiful voice she had and what a lovely song. I only remembered the first couple verses and snippets of the others. Thanks to all for putting the whole song together.
