THE WHISTLER'S MOTHER-IN-LAW (Bert Stevens / Larry Wagner) Bing Crosby & Muriel Lane (with Woody Herman’s Woodchoppers) Also recorded by : Frankie Carle & His Orch. (BC) If you’re whistlin’ ‘cause you’re happy Be very careful Pappy No tellin’ what a whistler’s mother-in-law will do Oh. the mammies around the kitchen Attendin’ to her stitchin’ There’s many behind the door keepin’ an eye on you. She’s got a direct suspicion You aim to do some fishin’ Your whistlin’, I declare, gave it away for sure But I reckon you mighta’ known it Might just as well postpone it You ain’t gonna go newhere ‘sept on a lecture tour. (ML) John, John, that’s what I’m a’callin’ Hurry up and haul that coal John, John, I’m not only stallin’ This old lady’s up to som’thin’ Sure as you’re born (BC) As you listen to granny cackle, She’s found your fishin’ tackle A whistle for all your plans now for the good they’ll do Look at granny, she’s got the flivver She’s headin’ for the river Well isn’t that like a man’s mother-in-law for you (Orchestral Interlude) (ML) John, John, that’s what I’m a’callin’ Hurry up and haul that coal (BC) I hauled that yesterday. (ML) John, John, I’m not only stallin’ This old lady’s up to som’thin’ Sure as you’re born (BC) As you listen to granny cackle, She’s found your fishin’ tackle A whistle for all your plans now for the good they’ll do Look at granny, she’s got the flivver She’s headin’ for the river Well isn’t that like a man’s mother-in-law for you (Contributed by Bill Huntley - December 2004)
