- Well?

- Please, I must see Mr. And Mrs. Ballantine.

- What for?

- Well, I've got something to give them.

- They're on now. I'll take it.

- Oh, no!

- I've got to do it myself.

- Not a chance, lady.

Nobody's allowed backstage

but the actors.

That's the rule,

and I ain't gonna break it.

#Train man, train man

on your way #

# For I'm ready to go #

#Train man, train man

on your way #

#To the land of Old BlackJoe #

# Ho, ho, ho #

# Hear that choo-choo

hoppin' along, whoo-whoo #

# I can hear it singin' a song #

# Candied yams and 'Ginia hams

like in the days of yore #

#A little angel waiting

by a little cabin door #

# Lordy, Lordy, how I pine #

#Just to be back in "Caroline" #

#Way down south

of the Mason-Dixon Line #

#With my mammy #

# Oh, way down south #

# Of the Mason and Dixon Line ##

- Oh!

- Flowers. Thank you.

Oh, wonderful.

Look. Pigeons.

Oh, but I've tried.

Why, I've got something to give them.

Oh, why didn't you tell me? A new gig, eh?

Hey, Bill. Take these to 'em.

Here, you can't-

It's a baby. It's a ba-

Did somebody lose a baby?

All right, wise guys.

Who put this baby in the basket, huh?

- Don't look at me. I ain't done nothin'.

- Whose baby is it?

- Is it a new part of your act?

- Somebody's kidding.

Yeah, probably you, huh? Wise guy.

You're comedians- puttin' a baby in a basket.

Is that a laugh, huh? Wait a minute.

Wait a minute. There's a note here.

Oh, sweetie.

"DearJoe and Kit, I've asked my landlady

to bring little Wendy to you.

"The doc says my time's just about up...

"but as long as I know

the baby's in your hands...

I don't mind joining Flossie.

Good-bye. Your Pal."

- It's Barney O'Hara's baby.

- It is Barney's.

But she's got Flossie's eyes.

You remember how pretty she was?

Yeah, she and Barney

were a beautiful team.

Gee, they were marvelous.

Well, what are we gonna do with her?

We're gonna keep her.

# Sweet brown maiden said to me #

#As she gave me language lessons #

# On the beach at Waikiki #

# Honi kaua wikiwiki #

# She repeated playfully #

# Oh, those lips were so inviting #

# On the beach at Waikiki #

# Now everybody is askin'me #

#Who's that bunch of"poison-ality" #

#With a figure like a cow #

# Baby, take a bow #

# Everybody wants to know #

#Where I found this homely Romeo #

#You could haunt a house

and how #

# Baby, take a bow #

# Oh, hear them whispering #

# "Hasn't she got anything" #

#Why, baby, you're a standout #

# Mister, what a bunch of bull

you hand out #

# But I'm gonna stand

right here and say #

#That I wish you were

a million miles away #

# Funny, I feel that way too #

# Is that so

Baby, take a boot #

# Oh, our act was awful up to now #

# Baby, take a bow #

# Everybody's asking me #

#Who's that bunch of personality #

# I'm presenting you right now #

# Daddy, take a bow #

# Everybody wants to know #

#Who's that great big

handsome Romeo #

# I'm presenting you right now #

# Daddy, take a bow #

# Hear them whispering #

# "Hasn't he got everything" #

# He's a standout #

# Listen to the compliments

they hand out #

# Let me stand right up and say #

#Who's the one brings Mother

all his pay #

# I'm presenting you right now #

# Daddy, take a bow ##

You know what I was thinkin'?

First let me get used to the idea

that you've been thinking at all.

- Well, what?

- Remember when they straightened out Barney O'Hara's affairs...

and they found out that he'd made half

the payments on that farm in New England?

Yes, and we're trying to get rid of it.

Well, maybe that's where we're wrong.
