ROBBIN' THE CRADLE
Tony Bellus (real name Anthony Bellusci) wrote this song and managed to reach number 25 on the charts in 1959. This was Tony's only hit song. Rumor has it that this song may have been inspired by the news from just a few months before in 1958 when rockabilly star Jerry Lee Lewis shocked the music world by marrying his 13-year old cousin Myrna.
This song is yet another of those great oldies that does not get the airplay it deserves on todays oldies stations.
