    Re: Eighth of January

    I heard it in the 60's while in my mid-teens. A friend's father had a collection of comedy records that we listened to. My gang of boys used to sing this song, and we too found it hilarious. Makes me...

    I found that information about Jubal interesting though. His brother, Tubal-cain, was the "father of smiths". (This is put here for interest and education, and not to promote any religious agenda.)
