Lighter Lyr Req: This is the day they give babies away (10) RE: Lyr Req: This is the day they give babies away 10 Jul 21


"The Weekly Wisconsin" (Milwaukee) (Nov. 21, 1896), p. 6: "Olaf's Uncle Tom told him in a gay rollicking song that --

'This is the day we give babies away
With a half a pound of tea."



"Gazette" (Cedar Rapids, Ia.) (May 1, 1920), p. 9:

"You will recall the old nursery rhyme:

"This is the day they give babies away
With half a pound of tea,
Open the lid and out pops a kid
With a written guarantee."
