Well, I forgot, I actually wrote one awhile back, BUILT FOR FLAVOR.

Then there's Move It on Over by Hank Williams. Each verse ends with a reference to a different "better dog," and it closes with this verse:

Remember pup, before you whine
That side's yours and this side's mine
So shove it on over (move it on over)
Sweep it on over (move it on over)
Move over cold dog cause a hot dog's moving in



The Boy Scouts have a cheer/yell... Cheers, Yells, and Applauses
Compiled by Daniel R. Mott District 23 Roundtable Staff.

Applause stunts are a great way to recognize a person or den/patrol in a troop/pack meeting for some accomplishment they have performed. Be sure before you start that everyone knows and understands the applause stunt and how to do it. Applause stunts serve more then one purpose they not only provide recognition but also help liven up a meeting. Applause stunts need to be fun. Strive for quality of performance in your stunts.


Hot Dog with Mustard: Get your hot dog and put it in a bun. Pick up the mustard bottle and squeeze some mustard on the hot dog, then take a big bite and say, "Yummmmm!" Not sure how you'd use that....


I have a database listing for "BLIND LEMON JEFFERSON Hot Dogs," but I dunno if it's a song or an album title.

Susan, you said:

"Hot Dog with Mustard: Get your hot dog and put it in a bun. Pick up the mustard bottle and squeeze some mustard on the hot dog, then take a big bite and say, "Yummmmm!" Not sure how you'd use that....

Maybe I don't understand your concept of applause stunts. How is putting a hot dog on a bun and putting mustard on it an "applause stunt" or cheer or yell?

Subject: Lyr Add: I WANNA HOT DOG FOR MY ROLL
From: Stewie
Date: 21 Sep 03 - 09:05 PM

Here's a bit of double entendre fun from Butterbeans and Susie. I used it years ago in a presentation/entertainment called 'Acid Folk' at a national festival in Alice Springs.

The lines don't line up neatly as they did in Word before pasting and posting, but it's all there.


I WANNA HOT DOG FOR MY ROLL

Hot dog Man:   Hot dogs, hot dogs. Here come the hot dog man
Woman:   Hey, come here!
HM:    What is it, lady ?
W:    Well, I see you got a hot dog stand.
HM:    You know something, lady, I'm known now as the hot dog man.    Yessir, hot dog.
W:       Well, listen.
            Well, I want a dog without bread, you see.
HM:    Why, why what's the matter?
W:       Because I carries my bread with me.
HM:    Now, lady, you peculiar, and that's a natural fact.
W:       Yes, and if I like your dogs, why I'll come back.
HM:    I know you will.
W:       How much is it? I'm here to pay.   Satisfy me.
            Listen while I say.
HM:    What have you got to say?

W:       I wanna hot dog for my roll.
HM:    Well, here it is, here it is.
W:       I want it hot, I don't want it cold.
HM:    My dog's never cold.
W:       Give me a big one, that's what I say
            I want it so it will fit my bread

HM:    I have a hot dog for your roll
W:       Now is it hot? I don't want it cold
HM:    My dog's never cold
W:       I sure will be disgusted
             If this dog ain't full of mustard
             Don' want no excuse
             It must have lots of juice
             I wanna hot dog for my roll

HM:    Come and let me straighten you out
             Now, here's a hot dog that's long and lean
W:       Uh, uh, that ain't the kind of dog I mean
HM:      Now, here's a dog, lady, it's short and fat
W:         But I sure need something different from that
             Now here's my roll
HM:      Where's your roll?
W:         Now where's your dog?
HM:      Uh, uh, it's just that that roll you got will hold a half a hog. Yessir.

W:       Well, listen, man, can you fit it?
HM:    Why sure I can
W:       Why boy?
HM:      Why, lady, I'm known now as the champion hot dog man.
             Now, here's a hot dog for your roll
W:         It must be hot, I don't want it cold
HM:      My dog's never cold
W:       Give a big one, that's what I said
             I want it so it will fit my bread

HM:      Now, here's a hot dog for your roll
W:         Now, is it young? I don't want it old
HM:      My dog's never old
W:       I sure will be disgusted
             If this dog ain't full of mustard
             Don' want no excuse
             It must have lots of juice
             I wanna hot dog for my roll
HM:      Hot dog man is goin'.    I'm goin'.   Hot dogs.


Source: transcription of Butterbeans and Susie 'I Wanna Hot Dog For My Roll' recorded on 31 March 1927 in NYC for Okeh. Unissued.   First appeared on LP:   Various Artists 'Stars of the Apollo' Columbia 67203. The complete recorded works of Butterbeans and Susie [Joe and Susie Edwards]

Note: The reason for the non-release in the 20s is unclear – far more raunchy and explicit songs were released on race records in the 20s.

Pack up your weiners in your old knapsack
And hike, hike, hike
Put in a loaf of mother's good brown bread
And hike, hike, hike
Marshmallows if you like;
What's the use of worrying?
All cares are out of sight, so-
Pack up your weiners in your old knapsack
And hike, hike, hike.

This one is insipid enough to be from a scout manual, and so it is.

"Hot Diggity, Dog Diggity boom what you do to me

Oops! The uncompleted sentence in my earlier posting was supposed to indicate that the complete recorded works of Butterbeans and Susie are available on 2CDs on the Document label. I can't believe that anyone would want that much of their stuff. However, their 'Elevator Papa, Switchboard Mama', in a similar vein to 'Hot Dog', is available on the excellent Yazoo compilation: Various Artists 'Please Warm My Weiner'.

Here's a longer version of the one submitted by Jack(also called Jack). Wish I could remember where I heard it so I assign proper blame, I mean give due credit.

I know a weenie man
He runs a weenie stand
He sells most anything from hot dogs on down
Some day I'll share his life
I'll be his weenie wife
Hot dog! I love that weenie man

I know a baker lady
her name is hot cross Katy
She stays up all the night
Bakin' that good stuff
When her buns are in the oven
I'll slip over for lovin'
(spoken) She's got a lotta dough, folks, but that's not why I love her

I know a weenie couple
They do the weenie shuffle
(next two lines forgotten)
They shuffle down the street so fast
It's hard to "catch up" let alone pass
(spoken) I'm gonna lear that weenie shuffle and I look forward to it with great relish!

(Repeat first verse)

I don't want you to warm half my Weiner, I want you to warm him all.

THOSE LAZY HAZY CRAZY DAYS OF SUMMER

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Dust off the sun and moon and sing a song of cheer

Just fill your basket full of sandwiches and weenies
Then lock the house up, now you're set
And on the beach you'll see the girls in their bikinis
As cute as ever but they never get 'em wet

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
You'll wish that summer could always be here

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Dust off the sun and moon and sing a song of cheer

Don't hafta tell a girl and fella about a drive-in
Or some romantic moon it seems
Right from the moment that those lovers start arrivin'
You'll see more kissin' in the cars than on the screen

Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
Those days of soda and pretzels and beer
Roll out those lazy, hazy, crazy days of summer
You'll wish that summer could always be here

You'll wish that summer could always be here
You'll wish that summer could always be here

I believe taht the BLJ reference is to an instrumental (mainly) tune in which you can hear his Hot Dogs (feet ) tapping the floor - I've never heard it, but I've seen a repro of an old handbill referring to it and Stefan Grossman recorded it.

Craig, you are correct. The BLJ is an instrumental with foot tapping/stomping and a running spoken commentary. He sings a couple of couplets such as:

Me and my feet is never late
Me and my feet just won't wait

It has been reissued on CD: Blind Lemon Jefferson 'Best Of' Yazoo 2057.

I used to eat so many hot dogs,
Couldn't look a cold dog in the face,

Yeah, now all I eat is chicken,

Wednesday I had chicken a-la-king (stop)
Thursday I had chicken giblets,

(Copied from http://www.thepeaches.com/music/composers/kern/HotDog.txt)

HOT DOG
(Words, Schuyler Greene. Music, Jerome Kern. From the show "Very Good Eddie," 1915.)

CHORUS: There's a café that the real swells know.
It is safe, and I long to go,
Just to shake my dogs about
Where the thoroughbred pups hang out.
There's a floor that is smooth and grand.
Something more: there's a big jazz band.
When I hear the music play,
I could throw myself away.

Roo-ti-too-ti-too-ti!
Come, my little beauty,
Step a little step with me.
Where the lights are gay, kid,
Till the break of day, kid,
Join me in a jamboree.
I have bottled up a lot
Of love I've not
Uncorked as yet.
Linger just within my reach,
So I can teach
You how to pet.

I'll put my arms around you, baby,
Hold you close, and maybe,
After we have stepped a few,
We shall both adorn a
Cozy little corner,
Big enough for just us two.
Hid away from all our bunch,
We'll sip our punch
And cool eggnog.
Life is full o' beauty,
Dancin' with my cutie,
Roo-ti-too-ti-toot-hot-dog.

"From the park you hear the happy sound of a carousel
Mm-mm, you can almost taste the hot dogs and French fries they sell
Under the boardwalk, down by the sea,yeah
On a blanket with my baby is where I'll be"

Steve-o posted another version of this song on 24 Sep 2003. I have verified the following lyrics by listening to the recording which you can hear at Spotify or on YouTube. I believe this was the first recording, on Decca 48157.


CHICKEN A LA BLUES
Written by Joseph Pleasant (Cousin Joe)
As recorded by Cousin Joe, 1950.

I ate so many hot dogs, couldn't look a cold dog in the face. (2x)
I had them in chili, baby, and I had them in tomato paste.

Down in New Orleans, in the place where I was born, (2x)
I ate so many chickens till it clucks all in my bones.

Sunday, we had fried chicken; Monday, chicken a la king;
Tuesday, chicken giblets and Wednesday, chicken wings;
Thursday, chicken fricassee; Friday, chicken stew;
Sat'd'y, scrambled eggs, and you know that's chicken too.
No more hot dogs! Those days are really gone.

Here's one we wrote way back in 1979:

ACME by Bev and Jerry

chorus:
                                                                     
Who puts the ham in the hamburger and the dog in the old hot dogs?                                                                        
Who serves genuine beef by products from the finest Iowa hogs?            
Who uses only pure bred horses of the finest pedigree?
It's the A-C-M-E Acme Fast Food Factory


1. I was rollin' down the interstate when I saw that neon light
It was an Acme Fast Food Factory so I just pulled in for a bite
I got me a hot dog on a bun - it was the worst 'thing I ever ate
So I called the manager over to me and we commenced a big debate

2. The manager said to me, "Look here, boy I don't wanna hear you whine
Right out there in front of the place I put a great big warning sign"
So I went outside to read that sign, ending our dialogue
And there it was just as plain as day, it said, "Boy, beware of the dog"

3. The next thing I knew I was laid out flat and the doctor had just arrived
He said to me, "Boy, you had a close call, it's lucky that you survived"
I thought to myself, "I'm poisoned for sure" as I contemplated my last meal
But I was hurt runnin' down the road chasin' an automobile

4. So when you're drivin' down the road and you hanker for a bite to eat
Fall into an Acme and get yourself a ptomaine treat
From Canada to Mexico, from New York to 'Frisco Bay
Ilt's the A-C-M-E Acme, endorsed by the AMA

Not a song - but a tune (and a half)!

Hot Dog - Sidney Torch

Recorded on the organ at the Regal Cinema, marble Arch, London (the largest cinema organ in Europe), some time in the mid 1930's.

This instrument had a very extensive (almost excessive) range of silent picture effects, including a set of tuned bird whistles, which can be heard at about 1'07".

The organ was removed into storage in Cornwall about 1964, and the Cinema demolished. The instrument survives, and is currently undergoing restoration.

I heard some years ago that Leslie Clair was a nom-de-plume for Sidney Torch.

HOT DOG SONG
As recorded by Arrogant Worms on "Toast" (2004)

Everybody loves hot dogs; even pasty hippies
Find it's hard to beat a tube of meat, but now a question hits me:
What the hell's in a hot dog? I shouldn't ask, maybe,
'Cause I don't know any animals that grow cylindrically.

CHORUS: So have a hot dog on me, my friend.
It's made out of animal odds and ends.
Have a hot dog on me, my friend.
It's the particle board of meat.

It's good to reuse and recycle the unpopular pieces of meat
That are quite gross, yet after they're processed, are such a delicious treat
That the children eat them till they're queasy, because they love the taste
Of sodium phosphate and iridorbate,* soy protein and sodium nitrate. CHORUS

May or may not contain chicken and/or pork and/or meat,
So have a hot dog on me, my friend.
Don't think 'bout the parts from the pig's rear end.
Have a hot dog on me, my friend.
It's the particle board,
The particle board,
The board particles of meat.

THE HOT DOG SONG
Words by Woody Allen, music by Marvin Hamlisch and Craig Carnelia.
From the musical play "Bullets over Broadway" (2014)
As recorded by Heléne Yorke in the original cast album.

Is there someone here who'd give a girl a hand?
I'm looking for the guy who runs the hot-lunch stand.
He's us'lly here around half-past three,
And I'm a hung-a-ry girl, you see.

They say I'm fickle; that's a fact,
But if I like the service, I might come back.
Tell me: how much is it? I'm willing to pay,
So listen to the words I say:

I want a hot dog for my roll.
I want it hot; I don't want it cold.
Give me a big one; that's what I said.
I want it so it will fit my bread.

I want a hot dog for my roll.
I want it young; I don't want it old.
I sure will be disgusted
If that dog ain't full of mustard.
Don't want an excuse.
It must have lots of juice.
I want a hot dog for my roll.

Now here's a dog that's short and lean.
That ain't the kind o' dog I mean.
Well, here's a dog that's short and fat.
You better show me something better than that.
Well. here's my roll; where's your dog?
Uh-uh, that roll you got would hold half a hog.

Hey! Tell me, can you fill it? Why, yes I can.
I'm known as the champion hot-dog man.
Now here's a hot dog for your roll.
You want it hot; you don't want it cold.

I haven't eaten; it's been a while.
Oh, my dog will lay you in the aisle.

She wants a hot dog for her roll.
She wants it young; she don't want it old.
Don't worry; it won't hurt her.

It's just a friendly frankfurter.

She'll wait in line. If it's kosher, that's fine.
She wants a hot dog for her roll!
She wants a hot dog for her roll!



[I have omitted some patter that appears in the recording. I have italicized the words sung by others than the main singer.

The above song is adapted from a comedy record by Butterbeans & Susie called "I Want a Hot Dog for My Roll" (1927) which you can hear at YouTube.

HOT DOG
As recorded by Buck Owens (as Corky Jones), 1957.

My baby works at a hot-dog stand,
A-makin' them hot dogs as fast as she can.
Up steps the capt'n, yells: "Don't be slow.
Gi' me two hot dogs ready to go."

CHORUS: Hot dog! She's my baby.
Hot dog! Drive me crazy.
Hot dog! Don't mean maybe.
Ya ought to seen my baby at the hot-dog stand.

In the cool of the evenin' when the sun goes down,
All the chicks an' the cats all gather roun'.
They order hot dogs an' red soda pop,
Then they head down the road to a hep-cat hop.

Well, I'm a-waitin' for my baby ever' night at twelve.
She closes up the shop and then we lose ourselves
At the hep-cat hop in a crazy way.
We're a-doin' the bop at the break of day.

Well all o' the cats ha' been a-hangin' around
Tryin' to get my baby, puttin' me down.
She either don't hear or she either don't care,
Or maybe it's the way that I part my hair.

HOT DOG
As recorded by Chris Powell & The Five Blue Flames, 1949.

(Hot dog!) Ain't they very nice?
(Hot dog!) Tried them once or twice.
(Hot dog!) Babe, we'll find advice,
With the mustard and the relish and the pickles, too.

(Hot dog!) Hurry, hurry, won't you, boy?
(Hot dog!) Make you jump for joy.
(Hot dog!) Believe me, it's the real McCoy,
With the mustard and the relish and the pickles, too.

Cola, save my soul-a.
I don't want orange, lemon or lime,
'Cause somethin' else fine is on my mind.

(Hot dog!) Hurry, hurry, don't be late.
(Hot dog!) Try them on your dinner plate.
(Hot dog!) Ooh, it's a date with fate!
With the mustard and the relish and the pickles, too.

(Hot dog!)
(Hot dog!)
(Hot dog!)

(Hot dog!) Man, I can hardly wait
(Hot dog!) To get a handful on my plate.
(Hot dog!) Ooh, it's a date with fate!
With the mustard and the relish and the pickles, too.

Subject: Lyr Add: AT A LITTLE HOT-DOG STAND (Dick Todd)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 08 May 17 - 12:18 PM

The tone of this record sounds unabashedly sentimental, yet I'm afraid it would provoke laughter from a modern audience. In other words, it's an example of unintentional bathos.


AT A LITTLE HOT-DOG STAND
As recorded by Dick Todd and His Orchestra, 1939.

It wasn't on the island of Capri.
It wasn't on the beach at Waikiki,
Nor at a perfume counter in Paree
Where we met, and yet—

Something in the air was continental.
There were moonbeams caressing the sand.
I was feeling young and sentimental
At a little hot-dog stand.

Gallantly I handed her the mustard,
Then she curtsied and I kissed her hand.
Inwardly my heart was getting flustered
At a little hot-dog stand.
[§]
The bubbles in our soda pop just hit us like champagne.
I guess that we had five or six.
From somewhere in the distance came a Viennese refrain,
Or was my fancy playing tricks?

There and then a spark of love ignited.
It was real and the feeling was grand.
To our wedding breakfast you're invited
At a little hot-dog stand.

[Repeat from §.]

From: Jim Dixon
Date: 08 May 17 - 01:40 PM

I would classify this song as hokum. I can imagine a jug band doing it. Ordinarily I would not bother to post 8 copies of a chorus, but Theard so persistently introduces minor variations that I think his effort should be documented.


HOT DOG MAN
As recorded by Lovin' Sam Theard, 1929.

1. Mama is worried, and my papa too.
They all upset 'bout my sister Sue

'Cause she crazy 'bout a hot-dog man.
Oh, she's always hangin' 'round his stand.
She's the funniest gal in the land,
Wild about a hot-dog man, yes, sir,
She's a fool about a hot-dog man.

2. She stays out at night till three o'clock,
Followin' that man around the block.

Oh, she crazy 'bout a hot-dog man.
She's always hangin' 'round his stand.
She's the funniest gal in the land.
She crazy 'bout a funny-lookin' hot-dog man,
Crazy 'bout a hot-dog man.

3. Maybe it's them good hot dogs makes her love him so,
Or something else; I don't know,

But she crazy 'bout a hot-dog man.
She's always hangin' 'round his stand.
She's the funniest gal in the land,
Wild about a hot-dog man, yes, sir,
Goin' crazy 'bout a hot-dog man.

4. Ain't no use jokin' an' it ain't no bluff.
That hot dog man must know his stuff,

'Cause she crazy 'bout that hot-dog man.
She's always hangin' 'round his stand.
She's the funniest gal in the land,
Goin' crazy 'bout a hot-dog man, yes, sir,
Crazy 'bout a hot-dog man.

5. Pa put that hot-dog man in jail.
My sister Sue, she went his bail,

'Cause she crazy 'bout that hot-dog man.
Oh. she's always hangin' 'round his stand.
She's the funniest gal in the land,
Wild about that hot-dog man, yes, sir.
She's a fool about the hot-dog man.

6. She's my own dear sister but I'm forced to say:
There never was no hot dog could make you act that way,

'Cause she crazy 'bout that hot-dog man.
She's always hangin' 'round his stand.
She's the funniest gal in the land,
Wild about the hot-dog man.
I don't know, but she's just a fool about that hot-dog man.

7. Listen here, folks; I'm tellin' you:
That hot-dog man has put that thing on Sue,

'Cause she crazy 'bout that hot-dog man.
She's always hangin' 'round his stand.
She's the funniest gal in the land,
Wild about that hot-dog man, yes, sir,
That same ol' hot-dog man.

8. Oh, buys her clo'es, sends her to school,
But that hot-dog man done turned her [a] fool,

'Cause she crazy 'bout a hot-dog man.
Oh, funniest gal in the land.
She's the funniest gal in the land,
Wild about a hot-dog man, yes, sir,
A funny-lookin' hot-dog man.


[Theard also wrote (I'LL BE GLAD WHEN YOU'RE DEAD) YOU RASCAL YOU, famously recorded by Louis Armstrong.]

Subject: Lyr Add: FIDO IS A HOT DOG NOW (Billy Murray)
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 08 May 17 - 03:21 PM

This is a bizarre one. You can hear it sung by Billy Murray at YouTube, or see the sheet music at Mississippi State University's web site.


FIDO IS A HOT DOG NOW
Words by Charles McCarron and Thomas J. Gray; music by Raymond Walker, ©1914.

1. We had a dog name Fido that I liked very much.
I used to spend all my dough for puppy cakes and such.
Our fam'ly learned to love him; to our hearts he was endeared,
But now they've gone in mourning 'cause poor Fido's disappeared.

CHORUS: But I won't look all over,
The way they did for Rover,
'Cause I know just where little Fido's gone. (Poor dog!)
He's in a place below,
Where all the naughty doggies go,
Down, down, down, where there isn't any snow.
Though his hair was short, and his tail was long,
I miss the little devil somehow. (Bow wow!)
{But he won't get cold feet at that.
There'll be too much mustard where he's at.}
Fido is a hot dog now.

2. We never had a burglar; they wouldn't take a chance,
'Cause they knew little Fido would hang on to their pants.
I used to love bologna; 'twas the only meat I'd get,
But now I cannot eat it; it reminds me of my pet.

ON SECOND CHORUS, SUBSTITUTE:
{He's smothered now in sauerkraut.
'Twill take too long to dig him out.}

Frankfurter Sandwiches

Written by Harry Pease/Al Dubin/Ed G. Nelson © 1927

Since the world began
The girl expects the man
To bring her tokens of his love
Some bring bags of gold
Their ladies love to hold
And jewels bright as stars above

But my sweetheart's ideals
Are so much higher, so much higher,
And here's how I fulfill
Her heart's desire…

Every night I bring her
Frankfurter sandwiches
Frankfurter sandwiches

How my baby loves those
Frankfurter sandwiches
Frankfurter sandwiches

I tried to win her with flowers, flowers
All kinds of sweetness
`Til I found out my baby's weakness

Every night she whispers
Thanks for the sandwiches
Thanks for the sandwiches
But I fear there's something wrong

Instead of her billing and cooing
All she starts doing is chewing
Frankfurter sandwiches
Frankfurter sandwiches
All night long

Say…

Every night I bring her
Frankfurter sandwiches
Frankfurter sandwiches

How my baby loves those
Frankfurter sandwiches
Frankfurter sandwiches

I tried to win her with candy, candy
Ice cream and custard
But how she likes hot dogs with mustard

Every night she whispers
Frankfurter sandwiches
Frankfurter sandwiches
But I fear there's something wrong

Listen…

Even when it was Yom Kippur,
Quietly I had to slip her
Frankfurter sandwiches
Frankfurter sandwiches
All night long!

************************************

These are the lyrics transcribed from the version sung by Harry Rose in Metro Movietone Revue (1929).
