  1. What a great illustration. This is one of the few songs that I know by heart. My mum was a great fan of Al Jolson mainly due to the Larry Parks Film and had a 78 of this song. I can still sing it and there are some tricky key changes in there, esp the bit with the bluebird. Sometimes I sing it to myself in the car!

  2. I know. It's one of those songs that you never mind having it stuck in your head.
