The Hut-Sut Song
Horace Heidt
Words and music by Leo V. Killion, Ted McMichael & Jack Owens

In a town in Sweden by a stream so clear and cool
A boy would sit and fish and dream when he should have been in school.
Now, he couldn't read or write a word but happiness he found
In a little song he heard and here's how it would sound;

Hut-Sut Rawlson on the rillerah and a brawla, brawla sooit,
Hut-Sut Rawlson on the rillerah and a brawla sooit.
Hut-Sut Rawlson on the rillerah and a brawla, brawla sooit,
Hut-Sut Rawlson on the rillerah and a brawla sooit.

Now the Rawlson is a Swedish town, the rillerah is a stream.
The brawla is the boy and girl,
The Hut-Sut is their dream.

Hut-Sut Rawlson on the rillerah and a brawla, brawla sooit.
Hut-Sut Rawlson on the rillerah and a brawla sooit.

From: val (Val)

I remembered this song from when I was a little girl; just the chorus and part of the verse following; it was fun to put in the search phonetically and find that someone had posted the song - pretty much as I remembered it.

I can remember this song from an old english sitcom called Terry and June.It has driven me nuts for over 30 years.redicoveredit on google yesterday and its driving me nuts again.I go to bed singing it and wake up singing it.Wheres the straight jacket??

It featured (in part) in the Kirk Douglas film Ace in the Hole and intrigued me.

As a young guy I worked with a man who had learned this song during the second world war whilst serving in the navy. All he new was the chorus and has no explanation of the meaning. I feel better now.
by Ted DeFord on 8/25/2008 8:15am
Yes, but what does "Sooit" mean?
by Mary Ann on 11/21/2008 11:56am
I first heard the Hut Sut song in the movie A Christmas Story. Trying to figure what the song was nearly drove me crazy until I heard it one day on the Big Band and Swing channel on the cable music channels. Thanks for printing the lyrics.

I don't know how to sing the Hut-Sut song.But,in Horton Hatches the egg,
Horton was singing it in different
words.He's my favorite character in the movie Horton Hears a Who!,I saw when I was 12,I turned 13 this month.
And Horton is an elephant.
by tmack on 12/2/2008 8:09am
wasn't this in a bugs bunny cartoon
by Maggie on 12/10/2008 3:43pm
No,Tmack.It was from Merrie Melodies.
by Don on 12/15/2008 1:21pm
In the cartoon Horton hatches the egg, even he doesn't really know the lyrics. He sings, "Hut sut so , on a rillarah and a so on, so on, so forth " , then he looks at the audience and says " I still don't know the words to that song !"
Thanks for posting the lyrics
by Maggie on 1/20/2009 3:35pm
Don,I think you mean the Horton says to the audience,"I still can't get the words for that song!".
by Maggie on 1/20/2009 3:36pm
Don,I think you mean that Horton says to the audience,"I still can't get the words for that song!".

Does anyone out there know or know of a song called Breathless from the 30s or 40s with a chorus that goes: "You take my breath away, My tassels are all in a heap, You've got me right where I want you, Baby, you walk in my sleep"? Part of a main verse line is: "Every single time that I'm inclined, To tell you what is on my mind,". It was on an old 78 that my parents had when I was a kid. I used to play it and others on a old victrola we had in the attic. I've googled it and looked up tunes on 78s, but so far, no luck. I really want those lyrics! Help!
by Marilee on 2/6/2009 4:02pm
Re: my previous comment. If anyone has those lyrics to Breathless, please e-mail to Thanks!
by Maggie on 4/25/2009 6:35pm
I don't quite know that song Breathless,Marilee. The songs I know are I like to move it,move it,and from Hello,Dolly,Put on your Sunday Clothes and It Only Takes A Moment.
by Howard on 5/16/2009 11:26am
Strictly from memory, this is what I recall about ďBreathlessĒ

If I had a dictionary I would use the customary
Compliments and phrases when I want to sing your praises.
But Iím up to here in trouble, my adversity is double
And on top of all of that, Iím breathless.

When I try to be poetic, you are never sympathetic.
As it is I do my best and hope and pray I pass the test.
But up to now Iím in the soup
My heart is doing loop-the-loop,
And to make the matters worse, Iím breathless.

You take my breath away, my castles are all in a heap,
Youíve got me right where I want you.
Baby, you walk in my sleep.

I take you for a little walk and Iím a guy who likes to talk.
You leave me on the porch and then I wind up with a torch,
For evíry single time that Iím inclined
To tell you what is on my mind
Iím darned if I donít find Iím breathless.
by Jenny on 5/24/2009 2:45pm
I wish music like that era of time was still around....I am 14 and LOVE that era!

I remember this song from my childhood during WW2. My mom sang it all of the time and drove us crazy. Now I wish we could hear her singing it one more time.
by marysings on 10/6/2009 8:29pm
Thanks, Howard, I was just about to send Marilee the words. You remember them just as I do. This is a great web site. Last time I googled it, Madonna's lyrics from the "Dick Tracy" movie kept showing up.
by doug on 11/13/2009 6:54pm
YES... What does "soo-it" mean?
by Brutus on 12/25/2009 2:55pm
I was watching the movie "A Christmas Story" today and for the first time watching it, I heard the Hut Sut Song in the back ground. When I started to sing along my wife thought I was going crazy. Thank god for Google.
by Max Boling on 2/4/2010 7:30am
If I remember right my mother used to sing it as, "Hut sut rah sitting by the rillerah with a brawla, brawla suet." I always thought the brawla suet was a bowl of something edible.

delightful to hear these oldies. keep up the good work.
by Lori Lazan on 11/15/2010 1:05pm
My dad sang this to me all the time in the 1960's and 70's. He passed away this year at age 84. I think of all the times I said that I should record him singing these songs so I will have them for the rest of my life and for my children. nfortunately I never did. But..... I can still hear him in my head.
by Daryll Borges on 12/25/2010 4:33pm
I remember the it from a Bugs Bunny cartoon when I was a kid. It's been driving me nuts because every year I hear it on "A Christmas Story". This year I finally found out what it was because of this page. THANK YOU!! Some sanity has been restored!
by M Lee on 3/23/2011 7:02pm
I sang what I thought this said to my kids and now my grands.... Found out what was really being said last night
by Don Mee on 4/8/2011 9:18pm
my mom used to sing that to me when we were kids
by Dick Maughan on 7/2/2011 5:52am
Like flt, I too heard it first on Terry snd June, and it drove me mdtoo. A couple of weeks ago, I met a man who started singing it, When I asked hm wat it was about,he said he didn't know,but everyone sang it in those days, early'50s I should think
by Ken Burger on 9/17/2011 5:08pm
Memories - I can remember trying to sing the Hut Sut with my own words - now I can do it with the right ones.
by Terrie on 12/6/2011 8:46pm
I have alwsys thought and sang to my now grown children.

And the rock sat on the little rock and a so and so and so forth...

i think it is appropiate as the story is about how what you do is what you are and it is reflected in your elephant bird :)
by Lynque on 1/16/2012 11:21am
Dad used to sing this song, pronouncing "Ralston." With that my brother and I naturally thought it had to do with 'Hot Ralston' cereal. Explanations went no further than that.
by Phil on 4/26/2012 7:20pm
My wife says to me, don't you think our birds would like some suet? (Our back yard birds have plenty of seeds.) So then this dumb song started playing in my head. Even tho I'm 83, there is no rest, no relief.

by Mark on 8/14/2012 10:26pm
i remember my Dad constantly singing this song when i was a little boy. I've been thinking about it a lot since Dad passed away three weeks ago. now the tune is stuck in my head! love you, Dad!
by Brian on 10/15/2012 9:31am
I heard this song on the radio. The
lyrics sounded to me like river rock and bowl of suet. I then entered this into my search engine and it came up with these lyrics at top of the list.
Aren't search engines just great?
by Kimberly on 5/11/2013 5:47pm
My Dad used to sing this song when he was in a particularly good mood. Never knew the origin.
by Lou on 6/20/2013 10:36am
If you grew up in Northern NJ there is a roadhouse called Ruts Hut; "Ruts Hut sat on the river road..."
by Rob on 7/16/2013 9:51pm
Did anyone ever here a song I listened to as a kid on my folks 78 player: "Breakfast at seven, shooting at nine. Ten o'clock they put you in a box made of pine."
by Tammy on 1/16/2014 5:13am
It's not 'soo-it'... it's 'suet', it's used in cooking and making tallow. :)

I expect to be 86 in November, and have been revisiting songs I remember. Amazing how many I really do remember the fords for. Now I've got to look up "Hold Tight", a couple of words are eluding me.Bye
by Charles on 12/2/2014 10:49am
This is a hit from 1941 by Freddy Martin and his orchestra. I play it every now and again, to get the feel of the Big Band era. I am 76 and enjoy most music, except the "nude" women numbers today!
by L.R. Guy on 12/11/2014 10:58am
My question is do those nonsense words truly translate into the Swedish the lyric supplies or are they in fact meaningless jnventions by the songwriters? Anybody Swedish-speaking out there?
by Bob on 3/21/2015 2:23pm
The tune was going though my head tonight. I was too young to know the correct spelling and used to sing phonetically. I have just Googled Hutsut + Brola Brola and the song words came up.
by Norm on 11/12/2015 4:49am
Remembering popular songs from my schooldays in the early forties, and trying to recall the words of this and another nonsense ditty "Marsey dotes and dosey dotes"!
Thanks for rekindling old memories.

hut sut raw lyrics ...acording to me: metric hi fordamedia the elephant elephant elefant.
metric hi forda media so on is my name.
by Ginger on 2/8/2016 12:03am
"Marsey dotes.etc... translation "Mares (horses) eat oats, Does (deer) eat oats and Little Lambs eat ivy, A Kid(baby goat) will eat ivy too wouldn't you?" Words are all run together to get the sounds you hear.
by Diane on 6/15/2017 3:41pm
I remember this song from my childhood because the Toehee bird sings a song like the beginning of the chorus. New appreciation for the song and the bird.
by Barbara on 10/15/2017 9:23am
OMG! This is where the Internet is amazing! My father used to sign this song, but I really had no idea what the words were (probably neither did he). I put in "old song- bowl of suet". And up it popped. Incredible!
by Bill on 4/15/2018 5:24pm
Look up the video of Fats Domino playing "On the Bayou". The sax master, during his awesome solo, plays dittys from this song.
by Jim p. on 5/29/2018 4:41pm
Interesting comments. I too have been humming this song in my mind occasionally, since I was five. Today, 77 year’s later, this catchy little melody popped into my mind again this morning while my wife and I were eating breakfast. I sang the song as best as I could remember it and asked her if she had ever heard it - she had not. Based solely on what I had told her, she picked up her i-pad and found this website. I have finally learned why I could never make sense of the words . . . . I was trying to anglicize them (what’s that boiling on the Willa-Walla rolling ball of suet?) I was too young to know any better. I’ve finally learned the words before I died. . . . Thank you!
by Inga J. Lorta on 8/2/2018 10:32am
Nov shmoz ka pop, I say, 1506 nix nix. I listened to this song and was immediately flurjified with reality con gleam.
