Laughland--you come through like a champ. Harry Roy! I knew it was a British band. You've made my day/week!!! Thanks so much for running this song down and I also liked The Light Crust Doughboys song, too. Great!!! Thanks and best, Gart

I accidentally stumbled across a song whose title seemed interesting and so I gave it a listen. I'd say it belongs in this thread...

Bo Carter - Banana In Your Fruit Basket (1931)

I just discovered this message board looking for information on Make My Cot Where the Cot Cot Cotton Grows. I'm surprised no one has mentioned the song Oh Mr. Mitchell. It could be hard to find. I heard it on the Original Sound of Harlem three record LP set put out by Columbia. Try to find it and give it a listen. I can't think of any other old record that clearly uses the word poontang. Or is that two words? Maybe dismuke will put it on it on the site.

I always wondered about "I've Never Seen a Straight Banana" recorded by Fred Waring and others. There don't seem to be enough puns in there to make it naughty, but if it isn't, then what is it? Just a weak attempt at being naughty?

I'm glad this thread was resurrected because I've found a song on Red Hot Jazz that has a wonderful suggestion of naughtiness. It's Chares Creath's Jazz-O-Maniacs' Everyman That Wears Bell-Bottom Britches Ain't on Monkeyman. Here is the last line:

"I may look funny from my head to my feet
but I've got a jelly roll that's really hard to beat"

I had to explain to someone recently that in the 20's the term "jelly roll" does not refer to a style of donut!
