Who's that whisperin' in the trees?
It's two sailors and they're on leave
Pipes and chains and swingin' hands
Who's your daddy? Yes I am

Saw them do an outdoor festival thing in Austin, TX around the time this tune was big. Unfortunatel y , lol, the ground was muddy on account of heavy rains the day before, & some morons in the audience couldn't resist taking aim w/ a mudball at the well-dressed singer.

As fast it came and went, this song will have more lasting power than music of that decade because it still can draw New ears to love it!

I took a swing dance class in college and I remember this being the first song we danced to. I was so nervous I almost passed out. Now, I love swing dancing
