[Dixielandjazz] so "not-Jazz"

I just bought the double CD of Guy Lombardo mentioned by Bill H. in Oz.  
It does indeed include the Chicken Song, which I had never heard.  The 
reason I got the CD was for St. Louis Blues, which I remembered from 
playing my parents' 78.  What I remembered was Carmen Lombardo playing I 
guess alto sax and holding one note seemingly forever with the rest of 
the band shouting "hold it" and finally one calm voice saying "don't 
stop now Carmen".  It does have a few "jazz" tunes such as San, Five 
Foot Two, Dardanella, Waitin' for the Robert E Lee etc.  It also has 
"I'm My Own Grandpa"

>I have looked everywhere I can think and can find no hint of it.  Has anyone (if you are old enough) ever heard "The Chicken Song" (I Ain't Gonna Take it Settin' Down)?  There were a couple of songs that I really thought were better than the rest of the show.  It seemed that I had it on a 10" LP called "Enjoy Yourself", but I have tracked down a copy of that and still no song.
