YOU CAN PLAY IN THE SAME KEY, as the Kay Starr recording! I've created a slightly different opening, closing, and instrumental for BUG group play but I think you'll have a blast with it! Also be aware of how after the instrumental, the melody changes up slightly for two verses just for a little jazziness - listen to the recording and try it out!
"(Everybody's Waitin' for) The Man with the Bag"regularly appeared on Billboard's list of most popular Christmas songs in the early 1950s. Hal Stanley was Kay Starr's husband at the time. He had an interest in a club in South-Central Los Angeles where Dudley Brooks often performed, and had collaborated with Irving Taylor on several television projects. He brought the two together, took credit as a co-writer, and published it under his and Starr's publishing company, StarStan.
