RESULTS & ANSWER KEY for Golden Oldies Lyrics Quiz #413 (GOLQ413)

Congratulations to Tony Hardy (with his first GOLQ entry in about 17 years!),
James White, The EJ'S & Co., The Village Idiots, Really Rockin' In Boston, and
NAVAIRHEADS who, with scores of 500++, took first place in this quiz.  Three
entries with scores of 498++ and 496++ were close behind.

The major theme of GOLQ413 was fatherhood, in honor of the U.S. observance of
Fathers Day in June.  It is a follow-up to GOLQ388, in which the theme was
motherhood.  Most entries identified the theme.  References to such terms as
"father," "daddy," and "papa" needed to be in the actual context of a male
parent.  In many songs, a dominant or prominant male figure is referred to by a
role that includes one of these words, but it's not actually in the father
role.  An example is "Daddy G.," mentioned in a song that was #1 60 years ago
in June 1961, "Quarter To Three" by U.S. Bonds.  When I did the motherhood
quiz, I also elminated a few "Mama" songs for this reason.  I also eliminated
songs in which "Papa" was used as a nonsense word, such as "Papa-Oom-Mow-Mow"
by the Rivingtons.  I had difficulty trying to represent British Invasion and
Motown artists in this quiz.  Perhaps fathers were not as inspirational as
mothers were among these artists.  I finally found two Motown songs, one by a
group by which I knew many songs but not this one and the other in which there
was a brief mention of someone else's father.  The only British Invasion song I
used was also useful in filling a big gap in the alphabet.  Because it barely
made the Top 40, I was concerned it would not do well.  But all but one entry
identified it.

Two singers and one songwriter (with two songs) who I know to have died
recently are represented in this quiz.  There are two songs that originated in
pre-1940 musical productions.  Also included are songs by two singers who were
born in Philadelphia and a third one who worked there for several years in the
1960s and 1970s.  #12 fits in all three categories.

The songs in this quiz can be divided into the following categories:

Memories or stories of father: 02, 04, 05, 09, 12, 18, 22, 24, T2
Getting or asking advice from father: 08, 16
Rejecting advice from or disobeying father: 01, 07, 23
Joys of fatherhood: 06, 15, 21
Trials and tribulations of fatherhood: 03, 14, 19
Father in artist name: 07 (fits into two categories)
Father as protector of daughter: 10, 11, 17, 20
Other: 13, 25, T1

GOLQ413's mean score was 449.47, and the median was 496.

My thanks to everyone who participated.

Answers are in the form:
#number) Artist: Title (year[s]) [peak Pop] {peak R&B} <xxx>...<yyy>

[-]   = did not make pop chart
{-}   = did not make R&B chart
{F}   = made R&B chart as a flip side
{n/c} = no Billboard R&B chart published during this recording's period
        of peak popularity
<"xxx">...<"yyy"> = prior GOLQ(s) in which the song appeared, if any.

Well she got her daddy's car
And she cruised through the hamburger stand now
#01) Beach Boys, The: "Fun, Fun, Fun" (1964) [5] {n/c} <5><154><272><371>

Really Rockin' In Boston--"Yet another Beach Boys hit that begins with the word
'well.'"  They noted for "Little Deuce Coupe" in GOLQ365 that there are at
least 5.  At the time, I came up with "Fun, Fun, Fun," "Help Me, Rhonda," and
"Little Deuce Coupe."  Although I am going through another Beach Boys album
listening project on YouTube Music (an inferior, in my opinion, successor to
Google Play), I can't come up with the others right now.

He's doing the twist
Just like this
He's doing the fly
Every day and every night
#02) Brown, James, and the Famous Flames: "Papa's Got A Brand New Bag Part I"
     (1965) [8] {1} <53><228>

2-point deductions each for omitting "and the Famous Flames" and "Part I"
(which is why there are a few 16s and 18s for this one in the results).

And don't look so sad
Just 'cause I am leaving
I'll still be your dad
#03) Cher: "You Better Sit Down Kids" (1967) [9] {-} <14><171>

I wanted to have some pairings with songs from GOLQ388, while avoiding both
mother and father in the same song (such as a song by the Mamas and Papas as a
group).  I ended up with two, plus two others by stretching things a bit.
Three of the four pairs involve a tie-breaker.  The B-side of this song was
"Mama (When My Dollies Have Babies)," the second time that song had been
released on a single.  The first time, the song was the A-side, but it didn't
chart.  It was one of the tie-breakers in GOLQ388.  Like its B-side, this one
was written by her husband and usual singing partner at the time, Sonny Bono.
This is the unusual situation of a female artist singing a song from the male
perspective.  Unfortunately, both Cher and Sonny went through multiple divorces
each, possibly having to address their children with words similar to those in
this song.

He's worth more than every star in the sky
With that look of forgiveness that's always in his eyes
He works so hard but gentle as a lamb
He gave up so much to make me just what I am
#04) Chi-Lites, The: "Let Me Be The Man My Daddy Was" (1969) [94] {15} <->

The Chi-Lites had two songs that made the Hot 100 in 1969.  They were a lot
more successful in the 1970s with hits that included "Have You Seen Her" (#3 in
1971) and "Oh Girl" (#1 in 1972).

He goes to
She goes fro
He goes fast
She goes slow
He goes left
Mmm she goes right
#05) Como, Perry: "Papa Loves Mambo" (1954/55) [4] {-} <>

This song was being considered as a tie-breaker for this quiz until I
discovered that it was still on the chart when 1955 began and thus eligible to
be a regular song.

The EJ'S & Co.--Mitch Ayres and his Orchestra and The Ray Charles Singers

[Spoken, quote]
There's a boy outside
His name is Eddie
He wants to know if we can go steady
Can we, Father?
Yes, Father?
Oh, can we borrow the car, Pop?
#06) Douglas, Mike: "The Men In My Little Girl's Life" (1965) [6] {-} <130>

Mike Douglas was the host of what was probably the second most famous daytime
TV show to move from Philadelphia to Los Angeles.  It was a syndicated
talk/variety show.  According to Mike Weaver, the show actually began in
Cleveland before moving to Philadelphia.  Before his TV career, he was a "Big
Band" era singer.  He revived his singing career after the show moved to
Philadelphia and had this hit.  Although the segment here is spoken, he also
sang on the record.  This was his only Hot 100 single.  He had a Bubbling Under
one later.  My parents had this record, one of the few 45s that they had.  I
think it was a gift from a relative because they had three daughters (as did
Mike Douglas).  Unlike AMERICAN BANDSTAND, THE MIKE DOUGLAS SHOW did not remain
on the air much longer after its move to Los Angeles.

Then Dad it will be you who will have to burn my birth certificate
And although you'll stop calling me "Son"
I'll never stop calling you "Dad"
#07) Every Father's Teenage Son: "A Letter To Dad" (1967) [93] {-} <292><339>

This was a spoken-word answer record to the one at #14, as noted by Team
Teitelbaum.  I never knew of its existence until 1978.  The name was probably
inspired by that of the group Every Mothers' Son, whose hit record "Come On
Down To My Boat" was used in GOLQ388, making it the non-tiebreaker, stretching-
it-a-bit pairing with a GOLQ388 song.

My daddy he once told me
Hey don't you love you any man
Just take what they may give you
And give but what you can
#08) Garnett, Gale: "We'll Sing In The Sunshine" (1964) [4] {-}

The EJ'S & Co.--Orchestra Conducted by Sid Bass

Papa writes to Johnny
But Johnny can't come home
#09) Grammer, Billy: "Gotta Travel On" (1958) [4] {-} <37><144><181><305>

I used
To carry her satchel
She used
To walk by my side
But when
We got to her doorstep
Her dad wouldn't let me inside
#10) Hollies: "Jennifer Eccles" (1968) [40] {-} <89><301>

Here's the only British Invasion artist in this quiz.  Right after this song
and "Jennifer Juniper" by Donovan were hits around the same time, I suddenly
began to notice a lot of baby girls named Jennifer being born.  This trend went
on for many years and may still be going on, but now I am hearing names such as
Finnley and Savannah (granddaughters, born in 2021 and 2019 respectively, of
one of my first cousins).

'Cause Clifton Clowers has a pretty young daughter
He's mighty handy with a gun and a knife
#11) King, Claude: "Wolverton Mountain" (1962) [6] {-} <29><256><315>

This one is the vaguest reference to fatherhood in this quiz because neither
the title, the artist name, nor any of the lyrics in the song contains any of
the father words.  I chose it to fill a gap in the alphabet.  The answer song,
"I'm the Girl from Wolverton Mountain" by Jo Ann Campbell, does refer to the
girl's "daddy."  I considered that one for this quiz, too, but it fit into a
more crowded part of the alphabet.  Jo Ann Campbell had a song in GOLQ388,
"Mother, Please!"

Mike Weaver--"It probably has been mentioned before, but Wolverton (Woolverton)
Mountain is a real place in Arkansas.  Clifton Clowers is an actual person who
was related to the author, Merle Kilgore."

Gone are the days
When he would take me on his knee
And with a smile
He'd change my tears to laughter
#12) Lee, Dick: "Oh Mein Papa" (1961) [94] {-} <->

This is another song that I considered as a tie-breaker.  It charted in 1954 by
a pair of Eddies, an instrumental version by Eddie Calvert (#1 U.K., Top 10
U.S.) and a vocal version by Eddie Fisher (Top 10 U.K., #1 U.S.).  But after I
discovered this charting version, it became a regular song.

Dick Lee, known as "The Golden Boy," was born in Philadelphia in 1933 as
Richard Lee Beurer.  He actively recorded from 1952 through 1970, but this was
his only Hot 100 charting song.  He ran a nightclub in Bellmawr, NJ, across the
Delaware River from Philadelphia, for many years.  When searching online for
more information about him, I learned that he died on April 1, 2021.  Here is a
link to a tribute to him that I found:

"Oh Mein Papa" was written by Swiss composer Paul Burkhard in 1939 for the
musical DER SCHWARZE HECHT (THE BLACK PIKE).  Coincidentally, Dick Lee's
nightclub was only a block or two from a major highway called the Black Horse
Pike.  The first version of this song that I ever heard was by Connie Francis
on an album my family had, CONNIE FRANCIS SINGS JEWISH FAVORITES.  The father
in this song was a beloved, once-famous clown.

We make a happy pair
I go for my pony rides
He rides in his rocking chair
#13) Little Jo Ann: "My Daddy Is President" (1962) [67] {-} <262><339>

This was a novelty record released while John F. Kennedy was President of the
United States, based on the presumed experiences of his daughter Caroline.

Mike Weaver--"Little Jo Ann's last name was Morse.  She was 7 when she recorded
this song.  As far as I know it was her only appearance on a recording; even
the flip side is an instrumental."

Tony Hardy, The EJ'S & Co.--Harmony Jones Orchestra

If you are not grateful to a country that gave your father
the opportunity
To work for his family to give you the things you've had
#14) Lundberg, Victor: "An Open Letter to My Teenage Son" (1967) [10] {-}

This is the spoken-word record to which #07 was a response.  While it took 11
years for me to finally learn of the answer record, I knew about this one while
it was on the charts in late 1967.  It was played on the fairly conservative
Top 40 radio stations in the Washington, DC, area, and I saw Lundberg read it
on at least one T.V. show, possibly THE ED SULLIVAN SHOW.  I was surprised that
more entries identified the far less popular "A Letter to Dad" than identified
the Top 10-charting "An Open Letter to My Teenage Son."  Perhaps some people
have totally closed that one out of their mind over the years.

Although there were many things that parents and children clashed over in the
late 1960s, the one major point in the two records was the length of teenage
boys' hair.  One part of the Lundberg record that I never forgot is, "Your
mother will love you no matter what you do because she is a woman."  So mothers
are capable of unconditional love, but fathers aren't?

To have and hold
A precious gem
Is what you are
You're Mommy's bright and shining star
#15) Martino, Al: "Daddy's Little Girl" (1967) [42] {-} <291>

Like Dick Lee, Al Martino was born in Philadelphia.  In later years, he became
famous for playing the role of Johnny Fontane in THE GODFATHER (a fact that was
useful to know in a puzzle that accompanied a recent GOLQ).

I love you so
But I'll have to let you go
Unless you do get out and get a job
(Get out and get a job)
Woh-oh get out and get a job
(Get out and get a job)
I'm gonna wait till you pass the test
#16) Marvelettes, The: "My Daddy Knows Best" (1963) [67] {-} <>

I never knew of this song by the Marvelettes until I put this quiz together.  I
like it a lot.

I hate to face your dad
Too bad (Too bad)
I know he's gonna be mad
#17) Nelson, Ricky: "It's Late" (1959) [9] {30} <31><123><351>

Now here is a man
To me he is everything strong
No he can't do wrong
#18) Petersen, Paul: "My Dad" (1962/63) [6] {19} <34><164><321>

Why are children always first
To feel the pain and hurt the worst
It's cruel somehow
It just don't seem right
#19) Presley, Elvis: "Don't Cry Daddy" (1969/70) [6] {-} <190>

This was written by Mac Davis, who died on September 29, 2020.  He wrote or co-
wrote a few of Elvis Presley's post-comeback hits.  In addition to this one,
they are "Clean Up Your Own Backyard," "In the Ghetto," "A Little Less
Conversation," and "Memories."  The lyrics elsewhere in this song refer to a
situation in which the "mommy" has either left the family or died.  Davis'
first marriage ended around the time this song likely was written.  He had at
least partial custody of his son Joel Scott "Scotty," about whom he later wrote
the 1970 Bobby Goldsboro hit "Watching Scotty Grow."  His own life could have
also been an inspiration for "Don't Cry Daddy."  Davis had many hits as a
singer in the post-GOLQ era.

But I don't dare knock on her door
'Cause her daddy is my boss man
So I'll just have to be content
To see her whenever I can
#20) Royal, Billy Joe: "Down in the Boondocks" (1965) [9] {-} <31><309>

No, I don't want a bite of your mud pie
Looks appetizing
But I think I'm gonna pass it by this time
I got a dime
Right here in my hand
I wanna buy some ice cream
To walk down by the stream
#21) Smith, O.C.: "Daddy's Little Man" (1969) [34] {9} <>

This one was also written by Mac Davis.

Stuff in our apartment
Came from Father's store
Even clothes I'm wearing
Someone wore before
#22) Streisand, Barbra: "Second Hand Rose" (1965/66) [32] {-} <49><379>

Happy 100th birthday to this song!  It was introduced by Fanny Brice in the
Broadway revue ZIEGFIELD FOLLIES OF 1921 on Broadway on June 21, 1921.  Barbra
Streisand, who initially became famous for portraying Fanny Brice in the
Broadway musical FUNNY GIRL, included this song on her album MY NAME IS BARBRA,
TWO.  Although "Second Hand Rose" was not included in the Broadway show, it was
used in the 1968 film adaptation.

Team Teitelbaum--"Barbra's 'Nu?' at the end seems like a nod to
Fanny Brice's ... original, which was sung in a put-on Yiddish accent."

Here's a link to a parody called "Second Hand Nose" by Allan Sherman:

We went to Daddy and said that we wanna be wed
Dad said, "Nope,
You'll just have to elope,"
And laughed as he went to bed
#23) Thompson, Sue: "James (Hold The Ladder Steady)" (1962) [17] {-} <146><341>

In GOLQ357, I mentioned that when I first heard Sue Thompson's song "Big Daddy"
(written by John D. Loudermilk, just as this one was), I thought she was
singing, "Big Daddy's got a family now," instead of "Big Daddy's Alabamy
bound," based on my 11-year-old world.  That one is an example of a non-father
use of "daddy," as is a different song called "Big Daddy" by Jill Corey.  But
Sue Thompson sang about a real daddy in this one.

He says education is the thing if you want to compete
Because without it, Son, life ain't very sweet
I love this man and I don't know why
Except I'll need his strength until the day that I die
#24) Winstons, The: "Color Him Father" (1969) [7] {2} <47><171><295>

One day Jim's papa told him
Things were lookin' down
And they packed up everything they owned
And left this little old town
#25) Wonder, Stevie: "I'm Wondering" (1967) [12] {4} <209><384>


Papa says he'd love to be with you
If he had the time
So you turn to the only friend you can find
There in your mind
#T1) Diamond, Neil: "Shilo" (1967,1968,1970) [24] {-} <->

Here is a chronology of early releases and performances of "Shilo" by Neil

1967 - Released on JUST FOR YOU album
November 16, 1967 - Performed on the POPENDIPITY TV special
1968 - Released on a non-charting single
1970 - Re-released (alternate take) on a single that charted

Neil or record companies having rights to them have released other recordings,
both studio and live versions, of "Shilo" since then.

Neil Diamond was represented as an artist in GOLQ388 with "Brooklyn Roads,"
included as a tribute to his own mother, who had recently died.  I wanted to
include a song by him with a father reference to create a pair with that one,
even if it was a stretch, and decided that this one qualified as a tie-breaker
because it had originally been recorded in the 1960s.  One entry questioned
whether songs that charted after 1969 were eligible to even be tie-breakers.  I
had noticed other quizmasters doing it, so I have done it a few times.  In
GOLQ245, both tie-breakers that I used were songs that didn't chart by anyone
until after the GOLQ era.

Who's the one who used to tickle your toes
And wrinkle his nose
Who taught you how a choo-choo goes
#T2) Thomas, B.J.: "Daddy" (1966) [-] {-} <->
(Named by 9 entries)
#T2) Pebbles & Bamm Bamm: "Daddy" (1965) [-] {-} <->
(Named by 2 entries)

Oh, I know what you are thinking: "She used a B.J. Thomas song because he just
died on May 29."  That is partially correct.  Not long after I used his song
"Mama" in GOLQ388, I heard this song somewhere.  If you don't know it (as four
entries apparently didn't), it's to the same tune but with lyrics about Daddy
instead of Mama.  When I was brainstorming potential tie-breakers for this
quiz, I thought of this one but couldn't find it because I thought it was
called "Papa."  The day he died, just before I was about to release this GOLQ
to the world, I went looking for a different song of his to share with one of
my Facebook groups.  That one was just an album cut, not one of his hit
singles.  As I read the names of the tracks on his various albums using the
Discogs website, I saw "Daddy" and knew it was the song I was looking for
earlier.  After I found and played it on YouTube, I decided to use the song.
So, if I had known the correct title of the song in the first place, I probably
would have used it, and I only eventually got the title right because he died
and I went looking for a different song and finally found the right title for
this one.

"Daddy" was originally released on the 1966 album TOMORROW NEVER COMES.  "Mama"
was originally released on an earlier 1966 album, I'M SO LONESOME I COULD CRY.
(B.J.'s version of the title song was both the first version of that song I
ever heard and the first song I ever heard by him.)

What really surprised me was getting two entries that listed a different artist
for this song, the two children from the animated sit-com THE FLINTSTONES.
Some releases show the artist as Pebbles & Bamm Bamm of the Flintstones.
Because it is such an obscure recording, I gave full credit to the entries that
left off "of the Flintstones," which was both of them.

Mike Weaver, who was one of the entries to name Pebbles & Bamm Bamm as the
artist, actually noted it as an answer song to B.J. Thomas' "Mama."  He went on
to say, "Both are written by the same author and use the same tune.  On the TV
series the title characters were voiced by Sally Struthers and Jay North, but
my notes say that the record artists are Ricky Page (a minor girl group singer)
who recorded under various names.  The other voice is her daughter Rebecca."

The songwriter was Mark Charron.  But the Pebbles & Bamm Bamm version is not
likely an answer song to "Mama" because it actually came out the previous year!
My thinking is that Charron wrote both songs together, placed "Daddy" with
whoever handled the Pebbles & Bamm Bamm recordings and "Mama" with B.J. Thomas,
and then Thomas decided also record "Daddy."  Sally Struthers is best-known to
me as Gloria on ALL IN THE FAMILY, while Jay North is best-known to me as the
star of DENNIS THE MENACE.  I never knew they did the voices of these two


This chart ranks the songs/artists from most to least recognized.  The second
number on the line denotes the average number of points scored on that song
(total points divided by number of entrants, to 2 decimal places).  For
comparison purposes, tie-breakers are scored here on the usual 20-point scale.

Most of the songs did well because of the theme.  "I'm Wondering" likely did
not do well because it is a song with "papa" in the lyrics rather than the
title.  "Jennifer Eccles" did better than expected despite having "dad" in the
lyrics rather than the song, peaking only at #40, and being in a fairly large
gap in the alphabet.
