From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oh_My_Pa-Pa_%28O_Mein_Papa%29:

"O mein Papa" is a German song, as related by a young woman remembering her beloved, once-famous clown father. It was written by Swiss composer Paul Burkhard in 1939 for the musical Der Schwarze Hecht (The Black Pike), reproduced in 1950 as Feuerwerk (Fireworks) to a libretto by Erik Charell, Jürg Amstein, and Robert Gilbert. In 1954, that musical was turned into the film Feuerwerk with Lilli Palmer.

Under the original German title, an instrumental version by trumpeter Eddie Calvert topped the UK Singles Chart in 1954,[1] and was also a Top 10 hit in the U.S.

It was adapted into English by John Turner and Geoffrey Parsons under the title "Oh! My Pa-Pa".[2] A recording by Eddie Fisher with Hugo Winterhalter's orchestra & chorus was made at Webster Hall, New York City, on December 12, 1953. It was released by RCA Victor Records as catalog number 20-5552 (in USA)[3] and by EMI on the His Master's Voice label as catalog number B 10614.

Fisher's recording became a #1 hit on the U.S. Billboard charts in 1954. Fisher's version also made the UK Top 10; thus, in the UK, Calvert's version was number one while Fisher's made the top 10, but missed the top spot, and in the U.S., the opposite occurred. Calvert's version has a further claim to fame as the first UK number one to be recorded at the most successful of all British recording studios, Abbey Road.[1] The song returned to Abbey Road when Brian Fahey conducted an instrumental version in the summer of 1960 to be used as a backing track for Connie Francis' English-Yiddish recording for her album Connie Francis Sings Jewish Favorites. Francis overdubbed her vocals in Hollywood. In June 1966, Francis overdubbed the same the playback once more, this time with the original German lyrics for her German concept album Melodien, die die Welt erobern...

     From Me ('65) of NC - 06/21/15- "My Favorite Father's Day":

     This photograph was taken on the morning of our most memorable Father's Day. It was actually the last one with all seven of our children at home; Lewis was married four-and-a-half months later.

   Our family was asked to give all the talks in church that morning. As a surprise gift to Paul, I arranged to have the children sing the interlude hymn, "
Love Is Spoken Here" (push here to listen and see the lyrics). It is a lovely song, sung first through in unison, then splitting into two-part counterpoint. They started off beautifully, with Lewis' rich baritone voice leading Brent and Randolph on one part, the three youngest boys on the other part, and Adrienne looking adorable, snuggling in Lewis' arms.

   As the song progressed, Lewis began to choke up. One by one, remarkably in descending age order, each boy followed suit (along with most of the congregation). If there was a dry eye left in the chapel, it surely fell victim as well, when at the song's end, sweet little Adrienne, as if on cue, leaned over and kissed Lewis gently on the cheek. It was a beautiful, spiritual moment ~ the best present we could have given their father.
Father's Day, June 17, 1990 - Taylor Springs, IL
Brent - age 18; Paul - almost 47; Adrienne - almost 3;
Randolph - age 16; Nathaniel - age 10;
Joshua - age 13; Dale - age 6; Lewis - age 19

From www.ajokeaday.com - 06/20/15:

A dog went to a telegram office, took out a blank form and wrote:

"Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof. Woof."

The clerk examined the paper and politely told the dog, "There are only nine words here. You could send another 'Woof' for the same price."

The dog replied, "But that would make no sense at all!"

Oh My Pa-Pa

Music by Paul Burkhard for a 1939 musical called Der Schwarze Hecht  - Reproduced in 1950 as Feuerwerk (Fireworks)
Lyrics by Erik Charell, Jürg Amstein, and
Robert Gilbert

Recorded by Eddie Fisher, 1954
Oh Mein Papa Oh My Pa-pa

Papa wie ein Pfeil
sprang hinauf auf die Seil,
eh la hopp, eh la hopp, eh la hopp.
Er spreizte die Beine
ganz breit auseinand’,
sprang hoch in die Luft
und steht auf die Hand
Eh la hopp, eh la hopp, eh la hopp.

Oh, mein Papa war eine wunderbare Clown.
Oh, mein Papa war eine große Kinstler.
Hoch auf die Seil, wie war er herrlich anzuschau'n!
Oh, mein Papa war eine schöne Mann.

Er lachte: “Haha, haha”
und machte: Haha haha.
Dann sagt’ er: “Haha haha”
und rief: “Eh la hopp, eh la hopp
eh la hopp, eh la hopp
eh la hopp, eh la hopp
eh la hopp, eh la hopp.”

Ei, wie er lacht, sein Mund, sie sein so breit und rot
Und seine Aug' wie Diamanten strahlen.
Oh mein Papa war eine wunderbare Clown.
Oh mein Papa, war eine schöne Mann.

Er ritt auf die Seil
und rief er mir zu
“eh la hopp, eh la hopp, eh la hopp.”
Das konnte er machen
zwölfmal in ohne mieh;
er lachte dazu
und fürchte sich nie.
Eh la hopp, eh la hopp

Oh, my Papa, to me he was so wonderful,
Oh, my Papa, to me he was so good.
No one could be so gentle and so lovable,
Oh, my Papa, he always understood.

Gone are the days when he could take me on his knee
And with a smile he'd change my tears to laughter.

Oh, my Papa, so funny, so adorable,
Always the clown so funny in his way.
Oh, my Papa, to me he was so wonderful,
Deep in my heart I miss him so today.
