The Donkey Serenade is a song from the 1937 film The Firefly.
Can you hear the tune in your head?
It has been recorded by, among others, The Andrews Sisters, Mario Lanza, Glenn Miller, Artie Shaw, Gracie Fields, and The Band Of The Royal Corps of Signals.
There’s a song in the air
But the fair senorita doesn’t seem to care
For the song in the air.
Oh, I’ll sing to the mule
If you’re sure she won’t think that I am just a fool
Serenading a mule.
Is a mule a donkey? Surely not… a mule is the offspring of a male donkey and a female horse.
