SHAKE ME I RATTLE (SQUEEZE ME I CRY) (Charles Naylor / Hal Hackady (m & l) ) As sung by the Lennon Sisters 1957 < Let's Get Acquainted > Also sung by: Patti Page Ray Conniff (Clare Nelson) The Kaye Sisters Pat Hannah Cristy Lane Lyndia Ann Tarlton Marion Worth And others... Shake me I rattle Squeeze me I cry Please take me home And love me. I was passing by a toy shop, on the corner of the square Where a little girl was looking, in the window there She was looking at a dolly, in a dress of rosy red And around the pretty dolly, hung a little sign that said. Shake me I rattle Squeeze me I cry As I stood there beside her I could hear her cry. Shake me I rattle Squeeze me I cry Please take me home And love me. It was late and snow was falling, as the shoppers hurried by Past the girlie at the window, with her little head held high They were closing up the toy shop, as I hurried through the door Just in time to buy the dolly, that her heart was longing for. Shake me I rattle Squeeze me I cry And I gave her the dolly That we both had longed to buy. Shake me I rattle Squeeze me I cry Please take me home And love me. Notes: The four Lennon sisters (of 6) were part of an 11 sibling family which formed this traditional American pop group. Over time they became an American institution and after 55 years, the sisters are still performing as of 2013. Dianne, Peggy, Kathy and Janet got their start on the Lawrence Welk show. This happened by chance after Welk's son Larry met Dianne at high school and convinced his father to have a listen to them. To music enthusiasts, the sisters are known for their first hit < Tonight, You Belong To Me > in 1956 although the popularity of this song (during the 1950s) really belonged to the 'one hit wonder' duo of Patience and Prudence. Billy Rose and Lee David wrote the original music and lyrics in 1926. (Transcribed by David Story- April 2014)
