Clever Lyrics - "I Love to Sing-a"
By Sam Harris

I know this thread has long since passed, but I realize our Sunday
edition is short so I wanted to send this along.  A few week back there
was some discussion about lyrics that made a play on words, well, I was
riding the other day and had the radio on a bluegrass station and they
were playing the song entitled "The Moon Still Shines On My Moon Shine
Still." It is a very happy sort of song as long as you keep the revenuers
way.  :-)

I'm looking to find the words and music to a song I heard on a cartoon
the other day.  If I'm not mistaken I believe Al Jolson was credited for
the song.  The tune was about an owl family.  The father was the voice
teacher and the sons were the students.  He was teaching them the
classic vocal teaching song, "Drink Me Only With Thine Eyes"; however,
one of the boys wanted to sing another song.  Here are a few of the words
I can remember.  (Sing-a sounds like "sing-uh")

  I love to sing-a,
  I love to sing-a in the June-a and the spring-a,
  I love to sing-a.

That's all I can remember.

It was a very catchy tune.  Can any of you help me out?  I have searched
out the music books at the Library and I have a friend in the music
department at East Carolina University and he was not able to come up
with anything.  I'd love to have this music and see it made into a piano
roll, that is if it's not already.
