People, for the last three summers, two dear old friends of mine, the Stevenson brothers, have been serenading me and my daughter with a barbershop version of "Paddlin' Madelin' Home."
I was reminded of this by my dad who visited this weekend, and I thought "Why should the Stevenson brothers have all the fun?" So just today I downloaded the Spike Jones version from iTunes to learn and sing around the house and car and whenever. (The Bobby Darrin/Johnny Mercer duet also sounded awesome.)
"Paddlin' Madelin' Home" is from the 1920's, but you can watch a video of a Welkian performance right here. This is so goofy, I don't even know where to start.
(ps: The mojo must've worked. Dogs have been bathed, as have I. So what if I forgot to put the garbage out.)
