bassen Lyr Req: One Two Three O'Lairy (Count Basie, 1940) (76* d) RE: Jazz Lyric '1 2 3 O'Lairy' - Count Basie 1940 26 May 99

In the interests of completing the charting of cultural diffusion: in suburban LA in the early 50's we sang much the same as Sandy's Midwest 1940's version except we sang "o'leary" and we finished with the rhythmically succinct "10 o'leary MEN". I seem to recall that we sang up to 10 and then back down to 1: 10, 9, 8 o'leary, etc. finishing with "1 o'leary MAN"
