LITTLE SILK WORM, THE (Maurice Sigler, Al Goodhart, Al Hoffman) As recorded by: Jessie Matthews with Orchestral Accompaniment. Recorded 18th September 1935. Once there was a tiny little silk worm Got so tired he could hardly creep Wrapped himself within a silken blanket And peacefully he went to sleep Came a day when birds were gaily singing Sun was shining brightly in the sky Spring was in the air, and bells were ringing The little worm was now a butterfly Then he flew away And to the countryside Announced his pride It’s a holiday Because my work is done I’ve had some fun Came another day and something happened While the butterfly was on a spree Someone came and took the silken blanket Brought it to the factory Busy fingers went to work and wove it Into soft and silky satins rare What milady’s wearing in June Must come from some little cocoon So if it wasn’t for the little silk worm She wouldn’t have a thing to wear. (Musical Break) Came another day and something happened While the butterfly was on a spree Someone came and took the silken blanket Brought it to the factory Busy fingers went to work and wove it Into soft and silky satins rare What milady’s wearing in June Must come from some little cocoon So if it wasn’t for the little silk worm She wouldn’t have a thing to wear. (Transcribed from John Wright’s 78 RPM Record Collection by Bill Huntley -September 2013)
