Subject: Lyric Request: WeezWomp (?)
From: GUEST,Bruce, Nonmember
Date: 17 Jan 06 - 05:37 PM

I'm looking for the lyrics to a children's song. I can only guess how to spell the name. Some of the lyrics are along the lines of:

A strange little bird is the WeezWomp
It ends where it ought to begin.
It takes daily baths in a dewdrop,
It sleeps on the point of a pin.

It was a song on a children's record from the 60s about which I have no further information. Does it ring any bells out there? Thanks.

A strange little bird
Is a WheezWomp
It ends where it ought to begin
It eats only blossoms and moon beams
And sleeps on the point of a pin

Its wings are heavy to fly with
So it floats like a leaf on the breeze
It wants you to stop what you're doing
And sing it a sweet melody.

Found that with a Google of

"It ends where it ought to begin", strange little bird

It is someone's recollection of the song.

Thanks for the reply. I would have acknowledged sooner, but I have been having trouble getting onto the web site. I also did a Google search, but the only link was a web site that does not seem to be active, so I could only see as much as appeared in the Google window. I checked with the person who was trying to remember the song, who pieced together a third verse:

The WheezWomp is nice, but it's lazy.
It won't build a nest of its own.
It hides from the rain neath a daisy,
And cries when you leave it alone.

This person's recollection was that in the second verse: "Its wings are too curly to fly with", which sort of fits better than heavy wings with it floating on the breeze.

Still hoping to find a lead on who recorded the song, but thanks again for your reply.

Key is to keep this thread visible. TRhat is, refresh it every day. There are some seriously good folklorists here--and some of those guys can find the most obscure stuff. Don't give up hope, Bruce.

Found at Google Answers:

I drove my mother crazy with this 78 when I was little, in the early
50's. It was a small (8"?) 78 RPM record made of green vinyl, with an
orange label, and it was called "The Weez Wump." I am certain of the
spelling. I have no idea what was on the other side.

The story line was that it's time for Baby Elephant to go to sleep,
but she can't until her mother sings her favorite lullaby--"Please,
Mommy--you know which one!" (recalled here in fragments):

A strange little bird is the Weez Wump
It ends where it ought to begin
It takes daily baths in a dewdrop
And sleeps on the head of a pin

The Weez Wump is nice but it's lazy
It won't build a nest of its own
It (hides from the sun 'neath a daisy?)
And cries when you leave it alone

Its wings are too curly to fly with
So it floats on a leaf in the breeze
...
...


It ended with:

Sleepy Weez
Quiet please!

"And Baby Elephant is fast asleep."

A wheez womp is small but its lazy.
It has wings but it won't even fly.
It likes you to sing pretty music
So you sing it a sweet lullaby.

It likes you to sing pretty music
It can sing but it won't even try...

We had this record too. It was in a compilation of children's songs... my sister, who keeps everything, may still have it:

A strange little bird is a weez wump
it ends where it ought to begin
it eats only moss from a moonbeam
and sleeps on the point of a pin

it's wings are too curly to fly with
so it floats on a leaf in the breeze
it takes daily baths in a dew drop
and nods to it's own melodies

A weez wump is nice, but it's lazy
It won't build a nest of it's own
It hides from the rain 'neath a daisy
and cries when you leave it alone

Last part of Weez Wump:

It smiles when it hears pretty music
It could sing but it wont even try
It wants you to stop what you're doing
And sing it a sweet lullaby

Sleepy Weez
Quiet please.

I used to have an LP with the weez wump on it .It was about a mother elephant trying to get the baby elephan to go to sleep. The record also had Hobbildy Horse and Funny Bunny and Sleepy time for Dolly. I would love t oknow if there is a cd or dvd with these songs so that Imay give it to unfortunate children at Christmas time + so i can use the words to knit on afghans for under priviledged + sick children in the hospital

Weez Wump Lullaby

A strange little bird is a Wheez Womp
It ends where it ought to begin
It eats only moth ends and moon beams
And sleeps on the point of a pin

    Its wings are curly to fly with
    So it floats like a leaf on the breeze
    It takes daily baths in a dew drop
    And nods to its own melodies

The Wheez Womp is nice, but it's lazy.
It won't build a nest of its own.
It hides from the rain 'neath a daisy,
And cries when you leave it alone.

   It smiles when it hears pretty music
   It could sing but it won't even try
   It wants you to stop what you're doing
   And sing it a sweet lullaby.

Sleeping Weez
Quite please


"And Baby Elephant was fast asleep"

This song was my husband's favorite as a little boy. In fact he wore out the 78 record he played it so much. Happy to see the "wings" verse we didn't know and that others have enjoyed this lovely lullaby. My children loved it and so do their children. This is the way his
little-boy-memory recalls the song.

A sweet little bird is a Weez Wump, he ends where it ought to begin.
He eats only moss from dried moonbeams, and sleeps on the head of pin.
He cries when he hears pretty music.
He could sing but he won't even try.
He wants you to stop what you're doing and sing him a sweet lullaby.
A Weez Whump is nice but he's lazy, He won't build a nest of his own.
He drinks only dew from the daisy, and cries when you leave him alone.
He cries when he hears pretty music.
He could sing but he won't even try.
He wants you to stop what you're doing and sing him a sweet lullaby.
             Weeez Wump. Weezy, Weezy Wump. Weezy, Weezy, Weeez Wump.

"It eats only muffins and moonbeams..." Aaaawww...

One of my all time favourite songs. We still have the record, "Sleepytime Songs" by H Wilbur, Carousel Records, Code C 807. The address on the cover is: PO Box 125, Lawndale, California USA.

The track list is:

Sleep Baby Sleep
Bye Baby Bunting
Me And My Teddy Bear
Pinocchio
Mary Had A Little Lamb
The Wee Wump
Ding Dong Dell
Sleepy Time For Dolly
Three Little Kittens

It's interesting, the title on the cover reads 'The Wee Wump', not 'Weez'.

I don't have a record player any more, but once I get hold of one I will transcribe the lyrics for you.

Cheers,
