I was listening to an old radio clip of the Golden Gate Quartet, and I thought, man this tune sounds familiar!

I finally placed it, it’s sounded like the great classic Larry sings on Lyle the Kindly Viking, “Larry’s High Silk Hat.”

Sure enough.

After a little research, I find it is the same song, Funiculi, Funicula. It’s some Italian ditty from 1880. Great tune.

I like Larry’s lyrics better than the original. Speaking of the lyrics, the Golden Gate Quartet sang different lyrics than the original also.
