Tipi Tipi Tay: A Saturday Soundtrack Post

I have no idea where or when I first heard this song, but I remember singing it as I played in the backyard of the house I lived in when I was 6. I've always loved Dean Martin. May Dad used to watch his comedy roast shows on the teevee but if I ever said anything good about Dean Martin my dad would say, "he's a drunk". Actually, and I only learned this in the last couple of years, when he was drinking on stage or in front of a camera it was apple juice in his glass. And when Franky, Joey, and Sammy would stay up all night in the casinos Dean would go up to his hotel room to spend the night with his wife. That's right, it was all just an act.
