Do any of you know the song that goes "a bushel and a peck, a bushel and a peck, a bushel and a peck and a hug around the neck.."
DH just said used that phrase and I started singing it and he looked at me like I was nuts! : He had never heard the song before and of course I can't think of the rest of the words..

I know it! From the musical Guys and Dolls.

I love you, a bushel and a peck!
A bushel and a peck, and a hug around the neck!
A hug around the neck, and a barrel and a heap
A barrel and a heap, and I'm talkin' in my sleep.
About you.
About you!
About you!
My heart is leapin'!
I'm having trouble sleepin'!
'Cause I love you, a bushel and a peck
You bet your pretty neck I do!
Doodle, oodle, oodle.
Doodle, oodle, oodle.
Doodle oodle oodle oo.
I love you, a bushel and a peck
A bushel and a peck, go and beats me all to heck!
Beats me all to heck how I'll ever tend the farm
Ever tend the farm when I want to keep my
Arms - about you -
About you!
About you!
The cows and chickens
are goin' to the dickens!
'Cause I love you a bushel and a peck
You bet your pretty neck I do -

Doodle oodle oodle
Doodle oodle oodle
Doodle oodle oodle, oo!

Good-bye now!

Wow! You guys are good!

I've never seen that play or a movie of it.. so I'm not sure where I knew the song from.. probably from my mother. We always sang silly songs when we were little

OFF to tell DH that I'm not NUTS!!

Adelaide, Nathan Detroit's fiance. She sings it in a show, she's a singer/dancer.

I'm a huge Sinatra fan, I've seen this movie quite a few times.

I didn't know the rest of the song, but I've always sung the first two lines to my kids - while rocking, and they get a hug at the end. Don't know where I learned it tho...

my MIL sang this to my dh and she sings it to my dd and ds sometimes (i cant stand her so i cant stand the song now ) i also heard michael douglas singing it to some kids in some video clip of him in another country doing relief work....so i thought it was something people pushing 70 knew. since i never heard of it and my family never sang it.

i guess i was wrong yet again. i am not the broadway type.

I LOVE that song, and I LOVE Guys and Dolls! I sing that song to my boys all the time, they love it when I do the falsetto "my heart is leapin'! I'm havin' trouble sleepin'!"

Silly trivia bit: I believe in the movie version, they took that song out and subbed in a more *naughty* song, "Pet Me, Papa". :

I remember from childhood - we used to sing "I love you a buschel and a peck and a hug around the neck". I never knew the rest or where it even came from. Now I still sing that little piece to my kiddos.

We sing this to dd every night at bedtime, this song and 'you are my sunshine'! My dad and grandpa both sang those to me, and they still makes me a little : even after singing it every night for the last 2.5 years.

My mom sings this to ds all the time! She is in her 70's and loves musicals and such so she is always singing to him.
He loves it, and used to sing it with her. Now he has changed the part "About You" to "About Poo!!!" Typical 4 year old!
