Sharon, Lois & Bram (Sharon Hampson, Lois Lilienstein, and Bram Morrison) are a popular Canadian vocal trio known for their children's TV series The Elephant Show
(1984-1988), which used the tune "Skinnamarink" in its closing credits. While many folks associate the song with the entertainers, it originated from the 1910 Broadway musical The Echo
. "It's a much older song," Bram explained in a 2019 Songfacts interview
. "Lois learned it from her cousin who had learned it at summer camp, and then Lois passed it to us, and we said, 'Well, that's a nice song.'"
Sharon added: "We didn't know we were going to use it forever and ever at every show at the end of everything we've ever done. Every TV show, every concert, every public appearance, we sing 'Skinnamarink.' People do associate it with us but there are lots of people in the world who know the song and don't know where it came from, and that's fine too."
