Black Bottom
Written by DeSylva, Brown & Henderson
They call it black bottom
A new swisher, a sure galloon, an old sister
They clap their hands and do the raggedy trot Hot!
Old fellows with flamenco & young fellows the way they go
They jump right in and give it all that they've got
Then one night something happened dame fortune showed her face
The star got sick and I was told to go on in her place.
But, she recovered. Oh well!
Black bottom, a new rhythm when you spot'em, you go with'em
And do that black, black, black, black bottom
You wont be blue when you have got'em
If you do that black, black, black, black bottom all day.

But finally I got an offer to sing in New York
And I wired I'm on my way
I had visions that this would be a fabulous, famous cafe.
Filled with high society, elegant, and spruce.
And I pictured me the epitome of a very chic chanteuse.

The Peanut Vendor
Written by Simon, Sunshine & Gilbert
Through every city, town, and country lane
You'll hear him sing his plaintive little strain
And as he goes by, to you he'll say
Sing Melancholy Baby
The little children like to trail along,
They like to hear the peanut vendor's song,
They all laugh with glee when he will say
Sing Melancholy Baby

My Melancholy Baby
Written by Norton & Burnett
Come to me my melancholy baby
Cuddle up and don't be blue
All your fears are foolish fancies, maybe
You know dear, that I'm in love with you.
Every cloud must have a silver lining
Wait until the sun shines through
Smile my honey, dear while I kiss away each tear
Or else I shall be melancholy too.

My benefactor appeared with his card
And at first, I thought he was fresh Huh, fresh!
He was fresh from heaven all right
He produced the show that gave me the chance
To sing for you tonight

Written by Gershwin & Caesar
Swanee, how I love you, how I love you
My dear old Swanee
I'd give the world to be among the folks in
D-I-X-I-E-ven now my mammy's waitin' for me,
Prayin' for me, down by the Swanee
The folks up north will see me no more
When I get to that Swanee shore
Swanee, Swanee, I'm coming back to Swanee
Mammy, mammy, I love the old folks at home
I love ya Swanee!
How I love you, how I love you
My dear old Swanee
I'd give the world if I could only be
Sittin' on my mammy's knee
I love the old folks, I love the young folks
Oh my bunny, let me love ya more than Alabamy!
Mammy, mammy, my dear old mammy
Your wanderin' child will wander no more
When I get to that Swanee shore

So I can't quite be called overnight sensation
For it started many years ago
When I was born in a trunk at the Princess Theatre
In Pocatello, Idaho.
