About Shoo Shoo Baby

"Shoo Shoo Baby" is a popular song made famous by The Andrews Sisters. They sang it in the 1943 film Three Cheers for the Boys and it became a big hit for them in 1944, reaching No. 6 in the chart. Their version features a jazzy vocal pop arrangement typical of the time, with a key hook provided by the horns. It was written by Phil Moore and has appeared on many albums of 1940s music. Ella Mae Morse also recorded this song in 1943, with Dick Walters and His Orchestra. Released on Capitol Records, the single went to number four on the pop chart and number one on the R&B charts for 2 weeks in December 1943. It was also recorded by Glenn Miller with vocals performed by the Crew Chiefs. Frank Sinatra recorded the song in the 1950s, as did Nat King Cole. A version of the song by an uncredited male singer is played over a radio at the Heavenly trial of the airman in the 1946 film A Matter of Life and Death as a symbol of modern America. This song was also the inspiration for the naming of the Shoo Shoo Baby, a B-17 Flying Fortress which served during World War II.

You've seen him up and down the avenue
And now he's wearin' the navy blue
She had a tear in the corner of her eye
As he said his last goodbye

Shoo, shoo, shoo baby
Shoo, shoo, shoo baby
Bye, bye, bye baby
Do-dah do-day
Your papa's off to the seven seas

Don't cry baby
Don't sigh baby
Bye, bye, bye baby
Do-dah do-day
When I come back we'll live a life of ease

Seems kinda tough now
To say goodbye this way
But papa's gotta be rough now
So that he can be sweet to you another day

Bye, bye, bye baby
Don't cry baby
Shoo, shoo, shoo baby
Do-dah do-day
Your papa's off to the seven seas

(Shhh-shoo baby) Do-dah do-day
(Shhh-shoo baby) Do-dah do-day
(Shhh-shoo baby, shoo, shoo)

QUIET!!
I want a little bit o' quiet in the house, please
(She wants a little bit of quiet in the house)
So your papa's on his way to cross the seven seas
So don't you cry, oh, don't you sigh goodbye now
Shoo, shoo baby Shooo-oo-oo
Shoo, shoo my baby Shoooo
Goodbye baby, don't you cry no more
Your big tall papa's off to the seven seas

Seems kinda tough now
To say goodbye this way
But papa's gotta be rough now
So that he can be sweet to you another day

Shhhh baby, shhhh baby
Shoo, shoo, shoo baby
Goodbye, goodbye
Your papa's off to the seven seas, the seven seas
Your big tall papa's off to the seven seas

The Andrews Sisters

The Andrews Sisters were a highly successful close harmony singing group of the swing and boogie-woogie eras. The group consisted of three sisters: contralto LaVerne Sophia Andrews (July 6, 1911 – May 8, 1967), soprano Maxene Angelyn Andrews (January 3, 1916 – October 21, 1995), and mezzo-soprano Patricia Marie "Patty" Andrews (born February 16, 1918). Throughout their long career, the sisters sold well over 75 million records (the last official count released by MCA Records in the mid-1970s). Their 1941 hit "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" can be considered an early example of rhythm and blues or jump blues. more »
