The Christmas Choo Choo Train--Art Mooney and Laura Leslie (1950)





Welcome to the eighth day of Christmas (also known as New Year's Day)!  Today, a 1950 single by Art Mooney and His Orch., featuring Laura Leslie on lead vocal.  Charming sides, beautifully done, though I have no idea why the writers of Choo Choo Train inserted the quotation from The Girl I Left Behind Me in the melody.  Weird.
