That's from the 1936 movie Rhythm On The Range...

You got Louis Prima, Martha Raye and Roy Rogers in that bit.

I saw that on YouTube, but it didn't sound the same (i.e., not exactly the same) as the song I posted, which is the one I first heard on cassette back in the 1990s.

Time to start tracking down his movies. I'll probably start with this one.  :)

Barry, your knowledge never ceases to amaze me. I had no idea that song went so far back! I like Louis Prima's version 'way better. I had to smile at the female singer, though -- she looks so bored! The men seem to be having fun.

Thanks to you, Kathy, I can have a better default version now!
