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 Peanuts! 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 Peanuts! 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
Swanee 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. *No copyright infringement intended* http://www.youtube.com/user/MicheleBell1
