I remember hearing this song years ago and knew right away that the melody was Horace the swinging school bus driver. Actually, I think I even own this 45 with the picture sleeve, but couldn’t find it after a long search. I was curious about the song writing credits and to my surprise, with the help of the internet, the credit went to Dickerson, lead singer and guitarist. I like the Untamed Youth a lot and have been listening to them since the early ‘90’s. Deke Dickerson is a phenomenal guitar player and used a Fender Jaguar that was popular with early surf groups. Carl Wilson played one on the first 3 or 4 Beach Boy albums. The Untamed Youth also covered J&D’s Surfin’ Hearse from the Drag City album. I have no idea why Dickerson is the only name listed on this 45. He only changed the lyrics. The music wasn’t his. In the mean time, I’m going to try and track down the 45. Curious to see what the writers credit says.

What about copyright? It is such an obvious use of the original tune.
