We use to sing a song in school (1940s) with lyrics that went like this….”Leroy Leroy my boy be careful what you do, the tall papaya tree is much too high for you….so bring your basket down before you get a fall…”
Have you heard of it?
I sure would like it on CD.
If anyone can help with the lyrics or origins of this song, or if you know where to buy it on a cd, please let us know in the comments below.
