bassen Lyr Req: At the Codfish Ball (25) The Codfish Ball et al. 21 Oct 98

I need help! Can anyone direct me to a site where I can find the lyrics to the song "At the codfish ball" which Shirley Temple sang in a 30's movie? I know this is no where near being traditional/folk music, but I figure there's no place else on the net where I can reach such an eclectic and knowledgable group of people when it comes to music, right

Among other things, I'm director of the Norwegian Salt Cod Museum (I kid you not), I'm compiling any and all songs from all the countries in the world which have produced or imported salt cod/bacalao/bacalhau - any other songs or links anyone can come up with will be appreciated.

We're working on a music festival celebrating 300 years of exporting salt cod to the world, which will mean music from the England, Ireland, Scotland, France, Spain, Portugal, Cap Verde, Angola, Mozambique, Brazil, Cuba, Jamaica, USA and Canada, at least. Anybody have any ideas for the program?
