Heptune presents:

The Pump Song

(Richard Whiting, Buddy Fields, Sammy Lerner)

Transcribed from vocals by Tom Stacks, with Harry Reser's Six Jumping Jacks, recorded 6/1/1926.
From Harry Reser's Six Jumping Jacks, Volume 1, The Old Masters, mb 120.

It's hard to tell the depth of a well
By the length of the handle on the pump;
It's hard to gage a camel's age
By the curl of the hair upon his hump!
A girlie who may promise to be true
To you may be true to you and who knows who, do you?
It's hard to tell the depth of a well
By the length of the handle on the pump.
