From "Sing A Song of Safety," by Irving Caesar and Gerald Marks (1938):

Remember your name and address
And telephone number, too.
So if some day you lose your way
You'll know just what to do:
Walk up to that kind policeman,
The very first one you meet
And simply say "I've lost my way
And cannot find my street.
But I know my name and address
And telephone number, too."
And he'll be kind and help you find
The dear ones who wait for you.

(I learned this and other safety songs as a child in Brooklyn in the 1950s. Irving Caesar and Gerald Marks were noted songwriters whose compositions (not necessarily together) include "Tea For Two" and "All of Me.")
