A Hole in the Bucket, Dear Liza

More memories - triggered by whatever... In May of 1960, Harry Belafonte performed this song at Carnegie Hall and it became immensely popular. Wikipedia now lists it as a "kiddie" song, but you and I may recall laughing each and every time we heard it, for some reason. Even when we knew what the outcome would be.

Popular as it was, the song was included in one of our musical extravaganzas. I do not recall who did the singing, but do recall very clearly the strumming of one David Colby to accompany them. David sat on a stool, gazing intently at whichever performer was currently singing. He was a ham.

You may want to refresh your memory, so click on this link, "Hole in the Bucket" to take you back.
