CRANKY YANKEE Lyr Req/Add: Me and My Shadow (Peter Pan, et al.) (49) RE: Lyr Req: me and my shadow 14 Feb 02


Gee, I thought it was Ted Lewis (Ah_ha, is everybody happy, yes suhh) That Ted Lewis. He's the onie I remember singing it. But hell, between 1927, when it was written, and 1936 or so,when I heard it, LOTS of people must have sung it. So, Jolson wrote part of it,.

Jolson, who sung about the south, mammy and all that, never was south of D.C.

Asa Yolson should have known about steeotyping, being the son of a cantor, so why the hell didn't he NOT sing in blackface and shuffl;e around saying things like, "Yassuh Marse James, Ah sho-nuff did lak dat leftover chicken". and all that crap, Huh?

See, I can be cranky if the situation calls for it.

Love and kisses, Jody
