About On the Good Ship Lollipop

"On the Good Ship Lollipop" was the signature song of child actress Shirley Temple. Temple first sang it in the 1934 movie Bright Eyes. The song was composed by Richard A. Whiting, and the lyrics were supplied by Sidney Clare. In the song, the "Good Ship Lollipop" travels to a candy land. The "ship" referred to in the song is an aircraft; the scene in Bright Eyes, where the song appears, takes place on a taxiing American Airlines Douglas DC-2.400,000 copies of the sheet music, published by Sam Fox Publishing Company were sold, and a recording by Mae Questel (the cartoon voice of Betty Boop and Olive Oyl) reputedly sold more than two million copies. In June 2004, it finished at #69 in AFI's 100 Years...100 Songs survey of top tunes in cinema in America.

On The Good Ship Lollipop 
It's a sweet trip to a candy shop 
Where bon-bons play 
On the sunny beach of Peppermint Bay

Lemonade stands everywhere 
Crackerjack bands fill the air 
And there you are 
Happy landing on a chocolate bar

See the sugar bowl do the tootsie roll 
With the big bad devil's food cake 
If you eat too much, ooh-ooh 
You'll awake with a tummy ache

On The Good Ship Lollipop 
It's a night trip, into bed you hop 
And dream away 
On The Good Ship Lollipop

On The Good Ship Lollipop 
It's a sweet trip to a candy shop 
Where bon-bons play 
On the sunny beach of Peppermint Bay

Lemonade stands everywhere 
Crackerjack bands fill the air 
And there you are 
Happy landing on a chocolate bar

See the sugar bowl do the tootsie roll 
With the big bad devil's food cake 
If you eat too much, ooh-ooh 
You'll awake with a tummy ache

On The Good Ship Lollipop 
It's a night trip, into bed you hop 
And dream away 
On The Good Ship Lollipop
