Genie Origin: Little Shoemaker (French/English/Italian) (92* d) Little Shoemaker (French/English/Italian) 11 Jan 13


Sanjay, in the Gaylord's version and Petula Clark's, it's obvious that the "lovely girl" is rejecting the shoemaker's attempt at wooing and she simply dances away with his gift, without a backwards glance.

And I'm guessing the Gaylords included the Italian lyrics in the chorus because they were an Italian-American vocal group. Most of what they recorded either had some Italian lyrics or some sort of Italian theme or both.   Same reason Freddie Fender included a Spanish verse in his recording of "Before The Next Teardrop Falls" and Julio Iglesias did a Spanish segment in his duet with Willie Nelson on "Spanish Eyes."
