I'm trying to find old songs for my dad. How about "A Spanish Cavalier"?

I'm not sure what the technical name for singing two different songs together, but I recall several years ago hearing a duet with one person singing "A Spanish Cavalier" and the other singing "Soloman Levi." Anyone know the words to that one???

All I can remember is:

My name is Soloman Levi

And my store's on Salem Street

That's where you buy your coats and hats

And everything else that's neat.

Second handed (?????)

And (????) so fine

For every young lad that smiles at me

At (????)

I have a song book from 1931 and it has

My name is S.L at my store on Salem Street, that's where you'll buy your coats and vests and everything that's neat. I've second-handed ulsterettes and ev'rything that's fine for all the boys they trade with me at a hundred and forty-nine.

O S.L! Levi, tra la la la Poor S.L. Levi, tra la la, la la la etc

Then repeat from the top.

Thanks, leeneia. That helps!!

BTW, What is the title of the songbook? Maybe the library has, or can get, it.

It is the Scribner Radio Music Library, vol 8, "Favorite Songs of Every Character." Charles Scribner's Sons, 1931 and 1948.

Thanks a bunch, Guest,leeneia - much appreciated. The local library is getting it for me on loan.
