On The Good Ship Lollipop Shirley Temple, Rudy Vallee (#4 in 1935)

On the good ship Lollipop,
It's a sweet trip,
To a candy shop,
Where bonbons play,
On the sunny beach of Peppermint Bay.

    Lemonade stands everywhere,
    Cracker Jack bands fill the air,
    And there you are,
    Happy landings on a chocolate bar,

Eating sugar bowl,
With a Tootsie Roll,
And a big, fat jelly fruitcake.
If you eat too much...
Oh! Oh!
You'll awake,
With a tummy-ache!

On the good ship Lollipop,
It's a sweet trip,
Into bed you'll pop,
And dream away,
On the good ship Lollipop!

Richard Whiting was strugling to find a song for Shirley Temple when one day his daughter Mararet came into his room with a big, sticky lollipop. She managed to get her father, his piano, and his music sticky. As she tells it, he said, "Get away from me, where did you get that lollipop..." He stopped mid-sentence. "That's it!" He rushed to the phone, called Sidney Clare, and said "I've got the title!"
