growing up in toledo, ohio
1739 freeman street
james francis, fifth in the family
december 2nd, 1936

you and your cousins, acting like children
not a care in the world, playing ball in the street
taking your bike, riding from j-zoo
you should have been walking
you got thrown from your seat

and i said sing jimmy sing
and the world will dance around you
sing jimmy sing
makes them glad
sing jimmy sing
and the world will dance around you
sing jimmy sing
thats my dad

one month a summer
you get the cottage
spending time with the family at luna pier beach
aunt olive, uncle otto, grandma and grandpa, (colvis and meal)???

and they say sing jimmy sing
and the world will dance around you
sing jimmy sing
makes them glad
sing jimmy sing
and the world will dance around you
sing jimmy sing
thats my dad

who would have thought?
in toledo, ohio
thats where it started that brought us today
60 years later
the same things happen
we are that family
but in different ways

and we say sing jimmy sing
and the world will dance around you
sing jimmy sing
makes them glad
sing jimmy sing
and the world will dance around you
sing jimmy sing
thats my dad
sing jimmy sing
and the world will dance around you
sing jimmy sing
makes them glad
sing jimmy sing
and the world will dance around you
sing jimmy sing
thats my dad
