I can't recall when I picked up this Grumpy Schmid musical figurine, from the 1990's.
This figure plays the song "Children's Marching Song".
What song is that?
I wind it up and hear what I know as "Knick, Knack, Paddy Whack". Also known as "This Old Man".
knew? Apparently it was adapted for the 1958 film "The Inn of the Sixth
Happiness" by composer Malcom Arnold as "The Children's Marching Song",
which led to hit singles for Cyril Stapleton and Mitch Miller.
