This little princess is adorable, energetic and competent. She’s just amazing!!! To be so young and be able to memorize all of that choreography is amazing in itself. She is dancing “My Boy Lollipop”.
“My Boy Lollipop” (originally “My Girl Lollypop”) is a song written in the mid-1950s by Robert Spencer of the doo-wop group The Cadillacs, and usually credited to Spencer, Morris Levy, and Johnny Roberts.
It was first recorded in New York in 1956 by Barbie Gaye. A later version, recorded in 1964 by Jamaican teenager Millie Small, with very similar rhythm, became one of the top-selling ska songs of all time. The original song “My Girl Lollypop” was written by Robert Spencer of the doo-wop group The Cadillacs.
Notorious record company executive Morris Levy agreed to purchase the song from Spencer. Although not involved in writing the song, Levy and alleged gangster Johnny Roberts listed themselves as the song’s authors.
In an effort to avoid sharing any royalties with Spencer, Levy removed Spencer’s name from the original writing credits. Levy even claimed that Robert Spencer was his pseudonym.
