Does anyone have the Words and Chords or Tab to this Andrews Sisters tune?

I believe it was the MacGuire Sisters -- They sounded somewhat like Patti, Maxine and LaVerne.

this getting pretty far afield from folk music.There are many other places to find songs by any of those sisters!

I agree, this place will not be able to support requests from pop, rock etc. music hunters.It is already hard to sort out the requests for acoustic singer-songwriters. Isn't there some sort of rule about what gets posted?Every button I click to come in here says 'folk' or 'traditional' I wonder why people don't believe what they read?

Wow !! The ph suddenly dropped from neutral to ACID. The threads are clearly titled. Don't waste your time opening them if you are not interested !! Try a little tolerance instead of trying to police a public forum. After all is said and done, traditional and folk and ethnic and Celtic and all the other adjectives mean different things to different people. Lighten up Elsie and No-name and live a little,or at least let others .

Don't lets fight fellers. The DT has officially defined a folk song as anything anyone likes enough to send in. Personally, I can be as snobbish as anyone; as sort-of curator for the DT I'm anything but.

So, dick are you going to put "Mr. Sandman" in the database?And maybe "Yellow Submarine"? And everything by The Beastie Boys? Never mind, I give up-

Ya know Dick, Elsie may have a point. In my experience, when it comes to sing-alongs it's hard to beat old Yellow Submarine. Almost everyone knows and loves the song for it's good heart and universal whimsy. Oh, its not as with portent as Kumbaya, or Follow the Drinkin' Gourd, perhaps but uninformed coffeehouse audiences will sing right along, just like it was OK. Now then, as to Mr. Sandman: Perhaps Blank might submit some examples of those many other places to locate this material. I don't happen to know them yet, and what would be just-plain-folksier than sharing such info. Thank you, Dick & Les for riding to my rescue, I agree-if folks sing it...

From: Joe Offer

Whether it's folk music or not, it's sure a fun song to sing:

MR. SANDMAN
Artists The Chordettes--(peak Billboard position #1 in 1954)
Words and Music by Pat Ballard

(scat "bung, bung, bung, bung—26 bungs in all)

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Make him the cutest that I've ever seen (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Give him two lips like roses and clover (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over.

Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream.

(scat "bung, bung, bung, bung….)

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
Make him the cutest that I've ever seen
Give him the word that I'm not a rover
Then tell him that his lonesome nights are over.

Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream.

(scat "bung, bung, bung, bung)

Mr. Sandman (male voice: "Yesss?) bring us a dream
Give him a pair of eyes with a "come-hither" gleam
Give him a lonely heart like Pagliacci
And lots of wavy hair like Liberace

Mr Sandman, someone to hold (someone to hold)
Would be so peachy before we're too old
So please turn on your magic beam
Mr Sandman, bring us, please, please, please
Mr Sandman, bring us a dream.

(scat "bung, bung, bung, bung….)

I myself have found this forum very useful for all kinds of music. The folk songs I like I like IMMENSELY, but I also like many other types of songs, and if no one shuts me out, I would like to occasionally use Mudcat for other types of queries. "Sandman" is a great enough record to discuss on any forum, in my opinion. Besides, the categories are often not clear.

One aspect of this is that this forum is a great repository of musical knowledge and history, and you never can tell when one of the experts here might know something that will finally enable you to track down what you've been looking for. Perhaps a song you thought was pop or rock or C&W is actually folk-based. But on the other hand, I agree that there is a danger of the forum going off-topic. When I started here, I did not realize the "folk" nature of Mudcat, because I found this page, not the one higher up on the hierarchy. Perhaps it should be announced on every HTML page that the focus is folk, but other types of queries will be tolerated kindly.

Since it is clear that there is no way I can have a 'pure' folk/traditional page-(it couldn't be enforced, even if Dick Greenhaus and the Mudcat Cafe agreed with me), I think that Rawlings idea has some merit....and perhaps someday similar pages will be started for the other catagories of music, and there could be links back and forth to direct people to the best place to make an inquiry. How about it, you 'pop',rock,etc. music fans? Is there anyone willing to start a database of this type for those types of music..?For now, though, I really shall abstain from complaining.(Honest, Les!)

Atta girl, Elsie !! You've got a great idea and if I had access to sufficient bandwidth (both electronic and know-how) I'd really try to get involved. My tastes are pretty eclectic -- I'm a music lover !! So far, though, I haven't seen or experienced anything on the Net as good as DT or its mentors!! Please don't leave.

From: Jim Dixon
Date: 17 Nov 03 - 11:07 PM

Transcribed from the sound file at http://www.megspace.com/entertainment/judya/comedy.html

MR. SANDMAN
(As sung by Homer & Jethro)

Mr. Sandman, take back your dream,
The biggest nightmare that I ever seen.
Crackers in bed, she eats like a rabbit,
And, Mr. Sandman, it's a crummy habit.
Red lips I like a lot,
One on the bottom and two on the top.
You gave her a purty face.
Not a wrinkle is out of its place.

Mr. Sandman, she is a scream.
The biggest nose-holes that I've ever seen
Her great big flat feet hurt her when it storms.
Her pigeon toes keep a-peckin' her corns.
Mr. Sandman, get out of here.
I'll take an aspirin and you'll disappear.
Can't you let me be?
I've got a guitar. Stop picking on me.

hello peeps,

I love it when the 'folk' thread pops up. Elsie, not enough blues for my liking but i tell you what, I would nt swap it for the world. It's a bit like an awards speech far far too many people to thank for keeping the mudcat the way it is ..and you all know who you are.. :)

may your God bless you all....and on with the show.

The last line of the Homer and Jethro parody is a retake on an old bluegrass players' joke, "I'm not a guitar, quit picking on me."

Thanks for the rest of the lyrics, though, Jim - over a space of nearly 40 years, I had forgotten the first four lines of the last verse.

Mr. Sandman is definitely pop (or at least it was) but if people like it and are still singing it, maybe its moved into the folk realm. My mother used to sing it but then she sang songs from Mahalia Jackson and Patsy Cline, too. I sang it to my 27 year old daughter (she had never heard it before) and after she stopped rolling her eyes, she asked me to write down the lyrics. Who knows? Maybe its for the fun of it or maybe its just plain funny.

Date: 30 Jan 18 - 06:37 PM

Mr. Sanders gave me a "D", (boo,hoo,hoo,hoo)
Made me the saddest girl you've ever seen. (boo,hoo,hoo,hoo)
Gave me two tests I racked my brains over, (boo,hoo,hoo,hoo)
And have you read his comments in my folder?
Sanders, he is so mean! (boo,hoo,hoo,hoo)
He even referred me to the dean. (boo,hoo,hoo,hoo)
I hate trigonometry!
Mr. Sanders gave me a "D".
(boo,hoo,hoo,hoo, boo,hoo,hoo,hoo....)

Mr. Sanders ruined my dreams, (boo,hoo,hoo,hoo)
Now I'll never be the homecoming queen! (boo,hoo,hoo,hoo)
He wants to prove he's not a pushover,
Now my valedictory hopes are over.
Sanders, I'm so depressed,
Don't have no way to vent my stress.
I can forget my Ph.D.,
Mr. Sanders, gave me a "D".
(boo,hoo,hoo,hoo, boo,hoo,hoo,hoo....)

Mr. Sanders, (class?) I hate this school!
Gives me a lot of stress, it is totally cruel!
If I had mega-brains like Stephen Hawking
Maybe I'd get an "A" and not your mocking!
Mr. Sanders, somehow I'd like (somehow I'd like)
To be a senior before I'm too old!
Why do you have to be so mean?
Mr Sanders gave me, can't believe,
Mr Sanders, gave me a "D".
(boo,hoo,hoo,hoo, boo,hoo,hoo,hoo....)
