Subject: Lyr Req: All good children say thank you
From: GUEST,Ken M.
Date: 28 Dec 03 - 11:55 PM

I recall parts of a pleasant song that I heard as a child . . . one verse went something like this:
                I gave my donkey some hay
                And my donkey said thank you
                All good donkeys say thank you too
                Just as all good children do.

There was also a verse about a dog.
Does anyone recognize this song? Do you know the complete lyrics, the title, the performer or writer of the song? I'd characterize it as a manners lesson written as a song for young children. I wondered if Gene Autry could have been the singer, but I haven't found a connection.
I would appreciate any help in finding the source of this fond memory.

Gave my dog a bone
And my doggie said, "Thank you"
All good doogies say, "Thank you"
Just like all good children do.

All good doggies say, "Thank you"
All good pets say, "Thank you" too
Just like all good children do.

I am also looking for this song.

I finally found it. The title is Thank You and it is by Tex Ritter.
Found a youtube link below.

That fond memory comes from the Captain Kangaroo Show!

I had this on an album called Barnyard Songs, which I played so much I wore out. This would've been in the early 60s. Been looking for a replacement but can't find one.

1. At least the record label says "Tex Ritter" but Ritter's voice is not prominent on the record.

2. Each "Thank you" is sung by a different voice in what I take to be a male quartet.

3. At the end of each of these lines, there is an appropriate animal sound, e.g. "Arf! Arf!" "Hee haw," etc.
