Subject: Tune Req: Mickey pretty Mickey
From: gaeilgesinger

A sweet 91 year old lady from the Ft. Worth, Texas area has been looking for a way to have a song sung at her funeral that her Dad used to sing to her as a child and also won a competition with it. I'm hoping someone will recognize this bit of lyric and possibly steer me in the right direction. She is convinced that it's of Irish origin, but knowing the travel of folk songs back and forth, it may have originated in the U.S. and sent back. This is what she remembers of the lyric:

"Mickey, pretty Mickey, with your hair a raven hue

And your smilin' so beguilin'

There's a bit of Kilarney, too

Wildwood through your childhood

like a flower you grew

Pretty Mickey, pretty Mickey

Can you blame anyone for falling in love with you."



I'd appreciate any possible help to make a dear lady happy.
go raibh míle maith agaibh,

Written by Harry Williams (words) and Neil Moret (music). See The Lester Levy Sheet Music Collection for sheet music of 1918:

Mickey

Apparently the song was inspired by (the score says "adapted from") a Mack Sennett (silent) film, also called 'Mickey', which was a big hit in 1918.

My mother is looking for a version of this that was popular in the 1940's. (My dad liked it so much he used to call her 'Mickey'.) I'd like to download it from iTunes but I don't know the artist. Any help would be appreciated!
