Great Song! | Reviewer: Anonymous
    ------ About the song You Rascal You performed by Cab Calloway

My grandmother (a polite little Christian lady) would hum this tune every now and then when someone bugged her. It wasn't until later when I heard the song in full did I realize what was going on. A nice little way of saying 'Here's what I think about you!"

    ------ About the song Happy Feet performed by Cab Calloway

Hi, i would just like to say that the lyrics are correct and they are great! :) But I would like to mention the fact that this would be so much better if you where willing to actually take the time to put some facts about the song on here too. I think that would be wonderful for everyone. It would give the fans of his music something to learn about him and learning is a good thing. But other than that, keep up the good work! Your doing great! :)

Re: the question mark in your lyrics

You're right; it's "fendel" (or fendle). It's Yiddish for "frying pan." Lots of Jewish food in this song. This song is loved by all kids (It's on the "Nicky the Jazz Cat" CD "Nicky's Jazz for Kids" as well as some straight Calloway CDs.) They love to think up rhymes for everybody -- Try the tutti-frutti, cutie! Have some marinara, Clara!

Thanks for having the lyrics; I couldn't get all the names just by listening.
