Subject: G'wan Home Yer Mudder's Callin'
From: CRANKY YANKEE
Date: 24 Aug 01 - 05:36 PM

Jimmy Durante did it. I remember the last two lines of the first verse, and both choruses. It goes,

I sticks me head in t'ru duh doors
and the bartender sees me, and roars,

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.

Gwan home yer mudder's callin
Yer fadder fell inter duh washin'machine
Gwan home, yer mudder's callin'
Dey can't get duh laundry out, clean.

Also, "Behind the swinging doors"

Thanks, Jody Gibson

Tom Paley is an old buddy, He taught me to clawhammer the banjo in 1952 with the song "Johnny Booker" Do you happen to know where he lives, now? I lost touch with him about 15 years ago.

If you can find the lyric I'll be eternally grateful.
Thanks, Jody Gibson.

Jody, I've misplaced Tom's address in England (where he lives now) but no matter, when I tried to send you a 'personal message' I wasn't allowed in.

But here's the song. The track is titled "Some Children's Songs From New York"---the cassette is Tom Paley--Old Tom Moore--And More.

Come on home, your mudder's callin,
Your fodder got stuck in the washing machine
Come on home, your fodder's callin'
They can't make your old man come clean.

Go on home, your mudder's callin,
Your fadder got stuck in the garbage can,
Go on home, your mudder's callin'
Dey've come to collect yer old man.

Strange, that's all Tom sang. Sorry there's not more.

G'WAN HOME YOUR MUDDER'S CALLIN'
(words Ralph Freed. Music, Sammy Fain)

I'm part of the tough guys.
We're all of us rough guys.
I'm part of a gang on our street.
And when to delight us,
Some gang comes to fight us,
We don't call the cop on the beat.
We each one of us takes our place
And tells them right off to their face:

“Go on home. Your mudder's callin'.
Your fadder just fell in the garbage can.
Go on home. Your mudder's bawlin'.
They've come to collect your old man.”

One day my sweet mudder
Said, “Fetch your big brudder.
He ain't showed since yesterday noon.”
So I makes a beeline
As fast as a feline
To old man McGinty's saloon.
And just as I peeks through the doors,
The bouncer he spots me and roars:

“Go on home. Your mudder's callin'.
Your fadder got caught in the wash machine.
Go on home. Your mudder's bawlin'.
She can't get the laundry out clean.

“Go on home. Your mudder's callin'.
Your pa put a mouse in your mudder's shoe.
Go on home. Your mudder's bawlin',
And you just a crybaby too!”

This is the last verse from the King Jester version:

The goils we don't hate 'em,
But still we don't date 'em,
'Cuz that sissy stuff is too tame.
We highly respects 'em,
But still we rejects 'em,
'Cuz us kids are wise to their game.
When they come around for a lark,
We very politely remark...

(Followed by the last chorus, cited above)

Ends with:
Stay 'way from those joiks
By the winegar woiks,
Go Home, Go On, Go Home!

Despite what the Copyright Office says, the film was called Two Sisters from Boston. You can see the trailer for the film at YouTube. It includes a brief clip from G'WAN HOME YOUR MUDDER'S CALLIN'.

This is how the song was sung in Two Sisters From Boston with Kathryn Grayson, June Allison, Peter Lawford and Jimmy Durante. It was sung by the chorus girls at the Golden Rooster, a Bowery saloon, where Kathryn Grayson and Jimmy Durante work.

G'WAN HOME YOUR MUDDER'S CALLIN'
(words Ralph Freed. Music, Sammy Fain)

We're Peggys and Pollys
We don't play with dollies
We're part of a gang on our street.
And when all the rough guys
Pretend to be tough guys
We don't call the cop on the beat.
We each one of us takes our place
And tells them right off to their face

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

When boys try to date us
They soon learns to hate us
'Cause that sissy stuff is too tame.
They offer us sodas and strawberry floaters
But us kids are wise to their game.
Instead of a sock in the eye
We gives them the proper reply,

G'wan home yer Mudder's callin
Yer Fadder got caught in the wash machine.
G'wan home yer Mudder's callin
She can't get the laundry out clean.

One day me sweet Mudder
Said fetch yer big Brudder
He ain't shown since yesterday noon.
So I makes a beeline
As fast as a feline
To old man McGinty's saloon
And just as I peeks thru the door
The bouncer he spots me and roars,

G'wan home yer Mudder's callin
Yer Fadder fell into the garbage can.
G'wan home yer Mudder's callin
They come to collect yer old man.

My memory of LAST VERSE:

Last nite my big sister
Was spooning (mooning?) with Mister
McNulty out on the front porch.
They asked me to stay off
So I says you pay up
Or else I'll help carry your torch.
I asked for the price of two pies
And what do you think he replies?

CHORUS:

repeat 1st chorus, end of song

Vicki - they don't write 'em like that any more!
It was one of my favorites as a kid. (Probably the King Jester version.) Have no idea why my parents bought the 78, but it was one of those with a picture on it. The picture was of the gang!

If anyone wants the rest of the verses, I think I remember them; my dad wrote the song. :o)

They call us the tough guys,
we're all of us rough guys,
we're part of the gang on the street.
And when to delight us
some gang comes to fight us
we don't call the cop on the beat.
We each one of us takes our place-
and tells them right there to their face:

G'wan home... sheesh- how do I remember this- I'm 77 LOL Tring to remember the verse about the kid's father drunk in a bar and the Irish bartender telling the boy to go on home with his Irish brogue...

"Go on, get along home now, after all don't you know your mom's been a'callin'...
