The Parlor is a Pleasant Place to Sit on Sunday Night.

Does anyone know the words? It's from the 20's, and was a victor recording I am told #19777.

Than you,

Note Change of address please, AOL was cutting me off, to much traffic they said, so they don't need me.

Does anyone have the words to this song from 1925?

I had an e-mail saying it was by Frank Crumit on Victor #19777.

My mother used to sing this and we are trying to remember the lyrics. Some of the words were:

The clock upon the mantel, ticks out it's getting late,

They sit so close together, at first I cannot see, How many's on the sofa, but I don't think there are three,

The curtains on the window are made of snowy white, The parlor is a pleasant place to sit on Sunday Night.

"Don't forget to come again, another Sunday Night" is the last line.

These words are not in proper order, just bits and pieces of it comes to me, Do you know it?

Thank you for taking the time to read this.

"The Parlor is a Pleasant Place to sit on Sunday night"

Please help me remember the words to this old song, it was probably recorded in the 1920's. Some of the lyrics:

"They sit so close together at first I cannot see, how many's on the sofa, but I don't think there are three"

Thanks so much,

Akauk

Sorry, I used the wrong address above, I have just switched to Prodigy today, and didn't realize they use .net instead of .com.

If you know the words or where I can buy them, please let me know.

Lyrics copied from Public Domain Music:

SUNDAY NIGHT (1878)
By Frederick Woodman Root, 1846-1916

1. The light is in the parlor. A fire is in the grate.
The clock upon the mantle ticks out, "It's getting late."
The curtains at the windows are made of snowy white.
The parlor is a pleasant place to sit on Sunday night,
To sit on Sunday, Sunday night.

2. Fine books are on the table, and pictures on the wall,
And there's a cushioned sofa, but then that is not all.
If I am not mistaken (I'm sure I must be right),
Some people now are sitting there this pleasant Sunday night,
This pleasant Sunday, Sunday night.

3. They sit so close together, at first I cannot see
How many may be in there. I don't think there are three.
The clock upon the mantle ticks on with all its might.
It will be Monday morning soon instead of Sunday night,
Instead of Sunday, Sunday night.

4. The lamp is burning dimly. The fire is getting low.
Somebody says to someone, "It's time for me to go."
We hear a little whisper, so gentle and so light,
"Oh, don't forget to come again another Sunday night,
Another Sunday, Sunday night."

Also recorded in 1927 by Hugh Cross on Columbia (I have, or had, the 78 of this), a country rendition. Chunks of the lyrics, speeded up considerably, were added to Bob Wills' 1930s version of "Ida Red."
