Story about this misheard lyric by: Gregory Marshall Smith

The song is popular Yiddish tune written for a play in 1932. It was then brought to the Apollo Theater in Harlem by Johnny & George, two black performers. Sammy Cahn heard it and suggested it to Decca Records, which agreed except that the bulk of the lyrics had to be in English (this was 1937 and things were heating up with the Nazis already). Cahn wrote English lyrics and the Andrews Sisters became the first all-female act with a million-selling record. As for the name of the song, it has been misspelled for decades. As a child, I swore they were saying "My dear, Mister Shane." I even used the misheard lyrics for a title of one of my books.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Beer Barrel Polka"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Every time they hear that oom-pa-pa,
Everybody feels so tra-la-la.
Why They're Nonsensical:
"Tra-la-la" doesn't denote any kind of feeling.

"Beer Barrel Polka"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
There's a garden, what a garden.
Only happy faces bloom there.
Why They're Nonsensical:
Faces don't bloom. Flowers bloom.
[[[Editor's note: In addition, this song came out BEFORE 1950, so putting 1950s just because that's closest to the actual year IS NOT ACCEPTABLE. So I changed it to "christian". People, if a song came out before 1950 or after 2009, don't use a decade setting, because there are none that fit. Just use one of the other settings (country, xmas or christian).]]]

Songs That Open With Their Titles:

"Don't Sit Under The Apple Tree"
Opening Lines:
Don't sit under the apple tree with anyone else but me Anyone else but me, No! No! No! Don't sit under the apple tree with anyone else but me
Comments:
"Don't Sit Under The Apple Tree" was written and recorded originally back in World War II. The writers were Lew Brown, Sam H. Stept and Charles Tobias. It was originally envisioned to be sung my a male vocalist, in the guise as a serviceman writing home to his girlfriend, and was recorded by several artists both during World War II and afterwards. But the most famous and best selling version was by the Andrews Sisters with a very swinging beat.

Scary Song Lyrics:

"Beat Me Daddy, Eight to the Bar"
The Lyrics:
You'll hear them say, "Beat me Daddy, eight to the bar".
Why:
For a long time, I thought this was about someone actually asking her father to beat her up. And I still don't know what it actually does mean.
