Song lyrics to So Long! Oo-Long (How Long You Gonna Be Gone?) by Bert Kalmar / Harry Ruby, 1920
Ming Toy loved a boy,
Happy little Japanee;
Oo-long was his name,
Set her heart a flame.
One day he say, “Soon I gotta go away;”
When he leave Ming Toy grieve;
Everybody hear her say:
My Sunny Tennessee lyrics, by Bert Kalmar, Harry Ruby, Herman Ruby – (from the musical Three Little Words starring Fred Astaire and Red Skelton)
When the shades of night are falling
Tennessee, I hear you calling;
My thoughts just roam
Back to home, sweet home.
Every day my heart grows fonder,
Of the folks I left down yonder;
I wonder when I’ll be there again.
Where Did You Get That Girl lyrics — words by Bert Kalmar, music by Harry Puck, 1913
Lonesome Johnnie Warner, sitting in a corner
of a swell cafe, eating his heart away
because he had no girl,
at another table, sat a girl named Mable
with a fellow who Johnnie knew and his brain began to whirl
The girl had caught his eye and John began to cry.
