Story about this misheard lyric by: Alma Tomasello

I sang this song when I was young. After my sisters informed of the correct words, I didn't want to believe them. Then it dawned on me: why would a polar bear be bringing a letter?

Dated Song Lyrics:

"'BEechwood-4-5789'"
The Dated Lyrics:
And my number is BEechwood 4-5789;
You can call me up and have a date any old time.
Why They're Dated:
Phone numbers haven't used letters as part of the exchange since 1965 or so. [See also 'PEnnsylvania-6-5000'] PS My capitalization is deliberate; that is the way word-exchange phone numbers were actually written.]
