Jim Dandy to the Rescue

Woman and men of retiring timidity are cowardly only in dangers
which affect themselves, but the first to rescue when others are in danger.”

- Jean Paul
(21 Mar 1763 – 14 Nov 1825)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,

    I must admit once again that for forty-eleven or so years of my life I thought this song was called, "Jim Daddy to the Rescue" - as in a Big Daddy. Or a Sugar Daddy. Or something. I also thought it was a man singing it. It's a shocking thing to be thusly "edumacated" at my age. I always enjoy learning new things - except when they make me feel like a complete and utter idiot.....

From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jim_Dandy_%28song%29

"Jim Dandy" (sometimes known as "Jim Dandy to the Rescue") is a song written by Lincoln Chase, and was first recorded by American R&B singer LaVern Baker in 1956. It reached the top of the R&B chart[1] and #17 on the pop charts in the U.S. It was named one of The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's 500 Songs that Shaped Rock and Roll and was ranked #343 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.[2]

The song is about a man (Jim Dandy) who rescues women from improbable or impossible predicaments.[1] It proved popular enough that Chase wrote a second song for Baker entitled "Jim Dandy Got Married.".[1]

The American English term jim-dandy for an outstanding person or thing predates the song; first attested in 1844, it may itself come from the title of an old song, "Dandy Jim of Caroline"...[3]

From My Friend, Susan, of NC - 08/19/15:

“When we are impatient, we are neither reverential nor reflective because we are too self-centered. Whereas faith and patience are companions, so are selfishness and impatience. It is so easy to be confrontive without being informative; so easy to be indignant without being intelligent; so easy to be impulsive without being insightful. It is so easy to command others when we are not in control of ourselves. ...Clearly, without patience we will learn less in life. We will see less; we will feel less; we will hear less. Ironically, 'rush' and 'more' usually mean 'less.' ”

- Neal A. Maxwell

Jim Dandy (to the Rescue)

Written by Lincoln Chase (29 June 1926 - 06 Oct 1980)

Recorded by LaVern Baker (11 Nov 1929 - 10 Mar 1997), 1956


Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Go, Jim Dandy! Go, Jim Dandy!

I was sitting on a mountain top.
30,000 feet to drop.
Tied me on a runaway horse
Uh huh, that's right, of course.
Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Go, Jim Dandy! Go, Jim Dandy!

One day, I met a girl named Sue.
She was feeling kind of blue.
I'm Dandy, the kind of guy
Who can't stand to see a little girl cry.
Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Go, Jim Dandy! Go, Jim Dandy!

Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Go, Jim Dandy! Go, Jim Dandy!

I was riding on a submarine
Got a message from my mermaid queen.
She was hanging on a fishing line.
Mr. Dandy didn't waste no time!
Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Go, Jim Dandy! Go, Jim Dandy!

Once upon a time, I went to Maine.
Got a ticket on a DC plane.
Mr. Dandy didn't need no chute!
I was high and ready to boot!
Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Go, Jim Dandy! Go, Jim Dandy!

Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Jim Dandy to the rescue!
Go, Jim Dandy! Go, Jim Dandy!
