These are the neasrest I can find although I don't think they are quite what Hamish used to sing.

JEAN HARLOW DIED THE OTHER DAY
(Leadbelly, as sung by Hamish Imlach)

Jean Harlow died the other day,
Jean Harlow died the other day,
Jean Harlow died the other day,
And these are the very last words she did say

Chorus
And she said "Tang a lang a Tang a lang a
be dab a doodah   (x2)
Mamma gonna walk, mamma talk, yea,
Mamma gonna walk, Mamma talk, yea,
mamma gonna walk, mamma talk a New York.

The doctor came in and his eyes were looking sad,
He said this is the worst case I ever have had.
Chorus

When the doctor came,her Ma was running wild,
Saying Doctor, Doctor can't you save my child?
Chorus

Well the very last words she spoke before she died.
There's one more movie director I gotta ride.
Chorus
