SIX TIMES A WEEK AND TWICE ON SUNDAY (Tony Mitchell / Cole Porter (m &l) ) As sung by Margaret Whiting & Jimmy Wakely < Till We Meet Again > 1949 Released Oct 2007 Also sung by: The Andrews Sisters The Tanner Sisters Six times a week and twice on Sunday [Whiting & Wakely] Count them all up, they come to eight. Six times a week and twice on Sunday I get a kiss by the garden gate. Some folks like to sing 'n dance [Whiting] I hear a show on the radio [Wakely] But those things I never do [Whiting] I'd rather be a making love to you. [Whiting & Wakely] Six times a week and twice on Sunday [Whiting & Wakely] Count them all up, they come to eight. Six times a week and twice on Sunday I get a kiss by the garden gate. (bridge) I never went to Grammar School [Wakely] And I'm not slick at arithmetic. [Whiting] One and one is two you see [Wakely] You're the one for me [Whiting] and you're the one for me. [Wakely] Six times a week and twice on Sunday [Whiting & Wakely] Count them all up, they come to eight. Six times a week and twice on Sunday I get a kiss by the garden gate. You could take your fishin' line [Whiting] To a shady nook by a babblin' brook But I'd have to hurry home [Wakely] I couldn't ever leave my baby all alone. Six times a week and twice on Sunday [Whiting & Wakely] Count them all up, they come to eight. Six times a week and twice on Sunday I get a kiss by the garden gate. (short bridge) Six times a week and twice on Sunday [Whiting & Wakely] I get a kiss [Whiting}, I get a kiss {Wakely] I get a kiss by the garden gate. [Whiting & Wakely] Notes: Many feel this upbeat and whimsical novelty creation alludes to making love and the Andrews Sisters version, available widely on the Internet, certainly supports this premise. The lyrics vary somewhat in different 'takes' of this song. Jimmy Wakely was an American C & W singer and actor. He was first discovered by one of the Radio/TV/Movie singing cowboys, Gene Autry. He acted in a number of B Westerns during the 1940s. He had a successful recording career but became more prominent after he joined forces with Margaret Whiting. He eventually had his own TV radio show and continued acting and singing until the 1970s. He is most well known for the titles SLIPPIN' AROUND and ONE HAS MY HEART (THE OTHER HAS MY NAME. Margaret Whiting, daughter of songwriter Richard Whiting, was a 1940s/50s/60s pop, jazz, C & W singer and TV personality. She was born in Detroit USA. Her voice was wonderfully mellow, particularly in the lower registers, and an attraction for many. She had a number of hit recordings and continued to entertain until the 1990s. She was known by her adoring fans as the voice of MOONLIGHT IN VERMONT, the work of Blackburn/Suessdorf which her mentor, Johnny Mercer first suggested she record. She first sang for Mercer when she was seven years old and he eventually signed her as one of his first recording artists in the early 1940s. This song ultimately became a huge hit and over the years, a picturesque all time standard. (Transcribed by David Story May 2014)
