WHO PAID THE RENT FOR MRS. RIP VAN WINKLE? (Music: Fred Fischer / Lyrics: Alfred Bryan) Al Jolson (feat. in the show "The Honeymoon Express") - 1914 Sam Bernard (feat. in the show "The Belle Of Bond Street") - 1914 Billy Watkins - 1914 Al Jolson (feat. in the film "Mammy") - 1930 Jack Pearl - 1932 Mart Britt & His Orch. - 1932 Al Jolson (feat. in the film "The Jolson Story") - 1946 Bing Crosby & Al Jolson - 1947 Fred Hellerman - 2005 Also recorded by: Laura Guerite; Sophie Tucker; Ella Retford; Stephen Carter Hicks. Oh, oh, many years ago Lived the wife of happy Rip Van Winkle Oh, oh, she sent him away As the little stars began to twinkle All that he had he had under his hat She was glad to see him go So over the hills he went Left her without a cent One thing I'm anxious to know.... Who paid the rent for Mrs. Rip Van Winkle When Rip Van Winkle went away? And though he slept for twenty years Who was it kissed away her tears? She had no friends in the place No one to embrace But the landlord always left her with a smile on his face Oh, who paid the rent for Mrs. Rip Van Winkle When Rip Van Winkle went away? C'mon, tell me! Who paid the rent for Mrs. Rip Van Winkle When Rip Van Winkle went away? And though he slept for twenty years Who was it kissed away her tears? She never married again She was lonesome but then You'll always find a rooster Lookin' round for a hen Who paid the rent for Mrs. Rip Van Winkle When Rip Van Winkle went away?
