TUNESMITH TUESDAY - "Tell Me a Story" by Frankie Laine and Jimmy Boyd

SKIPNOTE: For the next few weeks (three, unless I think of any more), I've decided I'm going to indulge myself a bit and offer up a few of the songs I used to know and sing when I was just a little Skip (Pre-Skip? Skip 1.0?). This is one of them. To be honest, I don't think I ever actually listened to any of the original songs before looking them up for these posts; I just sang the lyrics that the people I learned them from sang.  Good memories, this.


Tell Me a Story

[Junior:]
Tell me a story, tell me a story
Tell me a story, remember what you said
You promised me you said you would
You got to give in so I'll be good
Tell me a story, then I'll go to bed

[Father:]
Oh, worry, worry, weary ends my day
Comes the time to go home without my raise in pay
Home by the fire where a man can just relax
Slippers there by the chair, not a worry, not a care
Along comes Junior swinging his little axe

[Junior:]
Tell me a story, tell me a story
Tell me a story, remember what you said
Tell me about the birds and bees
How do you make a chicken sneeze
Tell me a story, then I'll go to bed

[Father:]
Came home so late one evening last July
Played a little poker the time had passed me by
Shoes in my hand and my darlin' wife in bed
Up the stairs sayin' a prayer
Then a voice comes through the air...
[Junior:]
Hi you there, Daddy
Remember what you said

[Junior:]
Tell me a story, tell me a story
Tell me a story, remember what you said
Tell me how your eye got black
Because the doorway hit your back
Tell me a story, then I'll go to bed

[Father:]
Once upon a time I remember long ago
[Junior:]
Don't go back in history
Your memory's kinda slow

[Father:]
Stop your noisy talkin'
Until I finish with my tale
Once upon a...
[Junior:]
Upon a what...
[Father:]
Upon your back you'll get a swat
[Junior:]
Tell me about the fish you caught
That's was bigger than a whale

[Junior:]
Tell me a story, tell me a story
Tell me a story, remember what you said
You promised me, you said you would
You gotta give in so I'll be good
[Father:]
Here's a tale you'll never forget
[Tap, tap, tap]
[Junior:]
Ouch
My tails all red
[Father:]
And now get up to bed

[Junior:]
Ha, ha come on Daddy
Tell me a story
Hee, hee

Thinking of opening a furniture store?

If you open a furniture store and don't name it this, what are you even doing with your life?
