It's nothing personal, Pennsylvania folks, but if shoo fly pie and apple pan dowdy, makes your eyes light up, your tummy say howdy. Shoo fly pie and apple pan dowdy, I never get enough of that wonderful stuff doesn't get out of my head I'm going to blow the keystone out of your state.
 
Aaaarrrrggghhhh!

    Michael, I can help.  Try "3 little fishies in a itty-bitty-pool" or
    "Rum and CocaCola"  Those two always work for me when I get
    stuck on Shoo Fly Pie.

      I guess this is an over 80 thing?

        The only time I ever heard of apple pan dowdy was on the Rocky & Bullwinkle show.

          For me it is the theme song from the Disney ride "It's a Small World After All". The ride is long and the speakers every 3 feet along the way blare out that tune for every damn inch of it !!  Once you are infected it eats your brain-cells by the billions !  I almost attacked a person in my Doctors office some time back who used that song as the ringtone on their cell-phone and received what I felt were hundreds of calls during the time we shared in the waiting room !!

            When I was a little bitty baby
            My mama would rock me in my cradle
            In those old cotton fields back home
            When I was a little bitty baby
            My mama would rock me in my cradle
            In those old cotton fields back home

            Oh, when those cotton ball get rotten
            You can't pick very much cotton
            In them old cotton fields back home
            It was back in Louisiana
            Just about a mile from Texarkana
            In them old cotton fields back home

              If, in the very unlikely event that I ever get to 80 or beyond, I promise to let you know.

                    Oh?  Sorry.
                     
                    Erace that one with this one:
                     

                    Strike up the music the band has begun
                    The Pennsylvania Polka
                    Pick out your partner and join in the fun
                    The Pennsylvania Polka
                    It started in Scranton. It's now number one
                    It's bound to entertain ya
                    Everybody has a mania to do the polka from Pennsylvania
                    While they're dancing
                    Everybody's cares are quickly gone
                    Sweet romancing
                    This goes on and on until the dawn.
                    They're so carefree
                    Gay with laughter, happy as can be
                    They stop to have a beer
                    Then the crowd begins to cheer
                    They kiss and then they start to dance again.
                    Strike up the music the band has begun
                    The Pennsylvania Polka
                    Pick out your partner and join in the fun
                    The Pennsylvania Polka
                    It started in Scranton. It's now number one
                    It's bound to entertain ya

                        Unfortunately the Pennsylvania Polka doesn't work. I remember when it was on The Hit Parade (radio, not television).

                          The Pennsylvania Polka circa 1942--The Andrews Sisters---Patty, LaVerne and Maxene-----
                           
                          The Hit Parade starring Bea Wain with Lanny Ross and the Lucky Strike Hit Parade Orchestra under the baton of ????
                           
                          Michael these young whippersnappers don't know what they missed when they grew up with TV.  Radio was much better.  Your mind made the pictures for you---The Lone Ranger and Tonto, astride Silver and Scout, sitting on a hillside  looking down on a small Western Town where trouble was brewing------------I can see it now.

                            Don't forget Buddy Clark and Kay Thompson, and later Frank Sinatra, Dorothy Collins and Doris Day among the singers on the program. And those batons were held by Axel Stordahl and Raymond Scott, among others.
                             
                            I hate the fact that I can actually remember that stuff.

                                I was walking the hound and it was raining out.  She didn't care so why should I?  Then a song by Johnny Ray popped into my head----started singing---Just walking in the rain, getting soaking wet-
                                 
                                Well, the hound couldn't put her paws over her ears, so now when it is raining out she hides under a bed.  But every time it rains I start humming that tune.

                                  It was a one eyed, one horned, flying purple people eater.

                                    Does your chewing gum lose its flavor on the bedpost overnight?

                                        I was walking the hound and it was raining out.  She didn't care so why should I?  Then a song by Johnny Ray popped into my head----started singing---Just walking in the rain, getting soaking wet-

                                        Well, the hound couldn't put her paws over her ears, so now when it is raining out she hides under a bed.  But every time it rains I start humming that tune.

                                        You're just going to have to stop walking under that little white cloud when it's crying.
                                         
                                        If your heartaches seem to hang around to long,
                                        And your blues keep getting bluer with each song...
                                        Well, now, remember sunshine can be found
                                        Behind a cloudy sky,
                                        So let your hair down
                                        And go right on baby and cry.

                                              Speaking of little white clouds---it is a lovely 77 degree day here in St Pete with a few little white clouds.  No rain in site.
                                               
                                              And speaking of Harry Belafonte---the year was 1949---William B Williams had a TV show.  Black and white naturally----actually it was two shades of gray----light and dark gray.  He had Belafonte as his guest.  Harry lip sinced "Day-is-a-day-oh"  but the song coming out of the TV was "Scarlet Ribbons".  Little mistakes like that happened in those days-----made life fun.  And gives me something to talk about 62 years later.

                                                For some odd reason the song that stays in my mind and I belt out at odd time is "Delta Dawn".

                                                    I'm still hearing "It's a Small World" from the post of a couple of days ago.

                                                      you don't want this in your head, whoa...too late:
                                                       
                                                      I was alright for a while, I could smile for a while
                                                      But I saw you last night, you held my hand so tight
                                                      As you stopped to say "Hello"
                                                      Aw you wished me well, you couldn't tell
                                                       
                                                      That I'd been crying over you, crying over you
                                                      Then you said "so long."  left me standing all alone
                                                      Alone and crying, crying, crying, crying
                                                      It's hard to understand but the touch of your hand
                                                      Can start me crying
