Shoo Shoo Baby


The title "Shoo Shoo Baby" was a very popular one for nose art and it appeared on a wide variety of plane types all over the globe. The song was written by Phil Moore and it was sung by the very popular Andrew Sisters. The trio sang it in the movie "Three Cheers for the Boys" in 1943 and it became a big hit in the following year. Subsequently, many variations of it were performed and played by different artists including by Glenn Miller's Band when it was sung by the Crew Chiefs and also by Frank Sinatra. Remakes continued for several decades after the war.
