    I hate to confess this, but… I remember this song from my very early childhood and it sounds just as fun today as it did then. Don’t think I ever knew who sang it (surely there were multiple recordings of this one) and I haven’t heard it in hmmm hmmm years, so today’s pick was a special treat for me. It sure has a Betty Boop feel to it (but THAT is a little bit before my time — few things are!). A perfect kids song. Thanks for prying his relic loose from my memory bank. Now I’m hungry for a piece of cake.

      im6,
      That is amazing as I too found the rhythm great fun, and I totally get the Betty Boop feel.

      The music too is great with its New Orleans sound. It made me want a beignet!

      You are always very welcome!!

    Good Grief! I have not even thought of this one in years, much less heard it. Just had to sing along And when I did, visions of my grandfather and my uncle (the crazy one) performing this number with a mandolin and a harpsichord. It was great fun for us grandkids and we thought they enjoyed it too. Thanks for the reminder.

      Carl,
      You are most welcome, and I’m glad you and the grandkids enjoyed it.

      That song came right to mind when I was thinking about baking and I too hadn’t heard it in years.
