I heard this song once, and have it on tape which is trapped in my overpacked storage unit with the player. I have been looking for a digital version of this song for soooooo long! I didn't know who it was by, or for the life of me couldn't remember the name or the lyrics! See, If you stick around long enough here, you'll find all the tunes you are looking for!

This song is so devinly beautiful to me! Thanks, Matt!

Thanks! I really like that song as well. It took two tries for me to get that 78. The first time I bought it several years ago it got lost in the mail. Fortunately, I was able to find another copy last year.
Also, thank dismuke... he "insisted" that I include that for an update!

I love this song, too! Matt, I thought you had made a typo on Hit of the Week and the song is actually entitled "Sing Song Girl." That what the lyrics indicate. Is the official song title "Sing Sing Girl" and not "Sing Song"?

Thanks. Gart

Howdy hi, all...

The full title is, "Sing Song Girl (Little Yella Cinderella). My favorite copy is by Wing Toy and his Orientals, with a vocal by one Walter Ahrens (Broadway 1442). Does anybody know anything else about this disc? The flip is "99 Out of A Hundred". My research reveals that this could be a Horace Heidt band. The offensive pseudonym notwithstanding, it's an enjoyable disc.

Best good wishes

It seems that this could be a recording by the Sam Lanin Orchestra .

See the Online discography

Matto...
Cheers, and thanks buddy. After listening to that disc for the 395th time just a moment ago, I realized you're right. The Lanin groups had a pretty distinct sound. My old info was based on the fact that the disc was waxed in Grafton, Wisconsin, on or about May something-or-other of '31. I was led to believe that the only other group that recorded on that date in Grafton was an early Heidt band. It always seemed strange, really, because the disc is a bit hotter than anything you would expect Horace Heidt to be capable of.
Thanks again.

Thought I'd bring back this topic.

A Youtuber has posted a video of himself playing 'Sing Song Girl' on his Ukulele . It is a great rendition except for his somewhat modern ending. Anyway It is nice to see 20s and 30s music alive and well !!!

For those unable to get hold of a 78 recording, R. Crumb and his Cheap Suit Serenaders did a fairly faithful, good version on 'Singing in The Bathtub' on Shanachie Records. CD number 6003 (someone stole my vinyl).
