Subject: "Baby Boogie"

Written By: HawkTheSlayer on 08/08/06 at 3:22 am

This is a song I would often hear as a child, in Cleveland. My grandmother would play this tune, every so often.

It was called "Baby Boogie", and all I can remember of it is a young child drool-giggling, and making the appropriate noises. At the end of the song, the child drool-giggles again, and says "All gone!"

Does anyone know about this song?
Or how I can locate the artist, or a copy of it?

(Gggggggggggggggg, da, da, da-da-da-da)

My girl babysits for someone her block
Then I come up to join her and we start to rock
The baby hears the beat and man it is a shock
When he goes (ggggggggggggg, ggggggggggggg)

A rockin' type o' boogie is the kinda song
That makes this little baby wanna sing along
And though he maybe gets the tune a little wrong
He still goes (boogie-on-na-day)

He isn't too young to really feel the beat
He rocks back and forth in his little seat
He claps both his hands and he taps his feet
And he sings (doo-doo-da-da-da-da-da)

He is a hully gully bouncin' baby boy
You know the record player is his favorite toy
And don't forget he's eveybody's pride and joy
When he goes (ooo-ah-ge-he)



I know there isn't anyone to take a bet
But surely he's the youngest teenager yet
And probably the hippest of the diaper set
Cause he goes (go man, I like that)

He strolls in his stroller with the radio on
He doesn't go to sleep until the music's gone
He imitates the singer in the group
(With a low down voice)
(Low down, dug-a-dug-a)

And when it's time to tuck him in his little bed
With all that music runnin' through his sleepy head
The little fella doesn't say goodnight,
Instead, a-he says (boog-ooo, boog-ooo, boog-ooo)
Aaaaaaaaaaallllllllllll gone!

- Baby Sittin' Boogie, Buzz Clifford, 1961
