    I can't figure out how to show you this site, but it's on u-tube.
    Find: Betty Hutton, "The Perils of Pauline", The Sewing Machine Song.

    This was the opening scene from a 40s musical, "The Perils of Pauline", starring Betty Hutton who passed away in '07 at age of 86.
    She is most remembered in ďAnnie Get Your GunĒ and ďThe Greatest Show on EarthĒ.

    Lyrics:..... The Sewing Machine Song

    Ohhh the sewing machine, the sewing machine
    A girlís best friend
    If I didnít have my sewing machine
    Iíd a come to no good end
    But a bobbin a bobbin and peddle a peddle
    And wheel the wheel by day
    So by night I feel so weary that I never get out to play

    Ohhh the sewing machine, the sewing machine
    A friend in need
    If I didnít having my sewing machine
    A wicked life Iíd lead
    But a bobbin a bobbin and peddle a peddle
    And dream about romance
    So by night I feel so weary that I never get out to dance

    Ohhh the sewing machine, the sewing machine
    Me pride and joy
    If I didnít having me sewing machine
    Iíd a married James McCoy
    But a bobbin a bobbin and peddle a peddle
    And thatís the end of Jim
    ĎCause by night I get so weary I donít even look good to him
