Where's Me Shirt?

Album: Music For Pleasure (1965)

Songfacts®:

  • Running to 3 minutes 30 second with orchestrations by Brian Fahey, "Where's Me Shirt?" was released by Doddy And The Diddymen in 1965 on an extended 45 by Columbia with "Tatty Bye," "Doddy And The Diddy Men Make A Record," "Old Macdonald Had A Farm" and "Wee Cooper Of Fife."

    An obvious novelty record from the title, if you've ever wondered why Adam was naked in the Garden of Eden, or why Napoleon failed to conquer Russia, zany comedian Ken Dodd has a rather novel answer.
  • Dodd wrote this with fellow comedian Jack Diamond. >>
