Here’s a song about helping kids know what to do if they get lost. We believe it was popular in the 1940’s…
Remember Your Name and Address
Remember your name and address
And telephone number, too
And if, someday, you lose your way
You know just what to do,
Walk up to the kind policeman
The very first one you meet
And simply say, "I’ve lost my way,
I cannot find my street,
But I know my name and address
And telephone number too."
Then he’ll be kind
And help you to find
The dear ones who wait for you.
You can hear this song here by Tiny Tim.
Here you can hear Richard Stark singing Remember Your Name and Address. His rendition feels more authentic to me since he grew up in the 1940’s in New York singing it.
Many thanks to Carol Woodier for helping us find the lyrics to this song and to Richard Stark for singing it for us!
