New Year’s Greeting from Jimmy Dodd

Jimmy Dodd was the adult guy with the Mouseketeers in the original Mickey Mouse Club. ¬†For reasons I cannot explain, the words of this song — which he sang at the end of the show the week or two after Christmas — have stayed with me since the 1950’s.

May the Angel of Happiness circle and hover above you tonight

And there on your rooftop discover a permanent place to alight.

May she save all the best of your wishes for Christmastime joy and for cheer

And place them afresh on your doorstep each day of the forthcoming year.
