Shirley Temple Songs - Lyrics from the 1930s

Shirley Temple Songs


Shirley Temple was known as much for her songs as she was for her tap dancing. I have created a list of Shirley's most famous songs, and the lyrics. If you have the lyrics to a song that I don't currently have, please email it to me so that I can add them to the website.

Movie:Captain January
Year:1936
Song Name:At the Codfish Ball
Copyright 1936
Movietone Music Corp.
Lyrics/Music by: S.Mitchell and L.Pollack

Next Friday night your all invited
To dance from 8 to 5
All the fishes still alive
Are having a ball

Its some affair they'll all be there
From the Herring to the Whale
They'll turn out to shake a scale
In Neptune's Hall

Come along and follow me
To the bottom of the sea
We'll join in the Jamboree
At the Codfish ball

Lobsters dancing in a row
Shuffle off to Buffalo
Jelly fish sway to and fro
At the Codfish ball

Finn-an-haddie leads the eel
Thought an Irish reel
The Catfish is a dancing man
But he can't can-can like a sardine can

Tunas trucking left and right
Minnies mooching what a night
There won't be a hook in site
At the Codfish ball

I would suggest getting the movie "Captain January" just to see Shirley and Buddy Ebsen dance to this song - it is a classic!!
