Songs About Lollipops

Posted on: March 28, 2017

To celebrate March 28 is SOMETHING ON A STICK DAY, all I could think of is Lollipops.  I thought there must be lots of illustrated songs about lollipops.  After all, they are beautiful objects and something every kid loves.

Not much.  Seems like this is an untapped genre.

I did find this book which includes a record and ordered a reasonably priced used copy.  But I don’t know if there is actually in it a song about lollipops, maybe it’s just the title of the book:

lollipop songs luther varlay
Lollipop Songs
Book by Rene G. Varlay
Poems and Song by Various Artists including Rene G. Varlay
Illustrated by Jeanne Owens
Sung by Frank Luther

There is also this one.  But I it is a paperback priced at over $100.  A bit too much considering the a capella vocal one can find for it online is less than professional sounding.
