Another song related question.
When I was but a wee lad (late 60s-early 70s) I remember a top 40 radio version of John Jacob Jingleheimerschmidt, the perennial kids favorite. I remember it more of a ‘serious’ novelty version, like Purple People Eater, Transfusion or Monster Mash, rather than just a ‘kids’ song.
As I remember it, there were three verses, each having the famously-named narrator trying to go somewhere away from home so he does not meet other people with his same name. In the final verse, he goes to the moon, sure that no one there is named JJJHS, but the moon people are ALL so named, and they sing so in their moon-people high pitched voices, to his exasperation.
Did this exist, or am I mis-remembering a different version of the song? Every version on iTunes store (and there are about 50) are all kids versions. Any search I have done just gets too many matches of kid versions.
Does anyone know? Or am I nuts?
