MR. PIPER COME AND PLAY FOR ME
Deanna Durbin 1936 (live)
Sung during Eddie Cantor Show (Texico Town)
Dec 27th 1936
Orchestra Jack Renard
Oh Mr. Piper, will you play for me
I shall be as grateful as I can be
Oh they tell me when you play, fairies sometimes dance
If I'm very quiet, they may come to take a chance
It would be so wonderful, such a sight to see
Oh Mr. Piper, come and play for me.
Now I see the fairies coming
Here they are at last
Isn't it just lots of fun
To see them skipping fast
One has fallen over
He was running far to fast.
Oh, Mr. Piper, I didn't think they'd hear
All the dainty little things begin to disappear
XXX funny XXX the crackling of the XXX
And to see the fairy queen
Point her tiny toe.
Where they're gone,
I too must ran away
Thank you Mr. Piper, I'll be yours today.
