Anyone recognize an obscure Show Tune?

In Bob & Ray's soap opera parody "Mary Backstayge, Noble Wife" the characters put on a show, and during one rehearsal a musical number is played, called "In Your Hat". It's obviously an original cast recording from some obscure musical, but what? Google returns no results except for references to the Bob & Ray usage itself. The lyrics are odd and the meter is strange, and the featured male singer sings off-key several times, but its no amateur production, as it has a full orchestra and chorus. Can anyone recognize it from the lyrics below? [more inside]

US Presidents Lining Up (I Think)

I'm looking for a country music song. All I can remember is the artist, male, singing about the presidents of the US. If can remember correctly they were lining up and at a funeral (but, I could be wrong). Any suggestions as to what song it was?

What is Free Translator by the Books based on?

The Books have a song called "Free Translator" (YouTube link) in which the somewhat nonsensical lyrics started out as a "very well known folk song", but were passed through free web translators again and again until they became something completely different. Does anyone know/can anyone figure out what the original song was? It will be harder than it sounds. The answer does not appear to be on the internet yet...

Can you make the baby back ribs?

ObscureParodySongFilter: Searching for a parody of the Destiny's Child song "Bills, Bills, Bills" - only it was "Ribs, Ribs, Ribs." Sung by males extolling the virtues of a woman that could prepare great barbecue. The song was played in the late 90s on the radio in the Tampa, Florida area. I'd love to hear it again and my google-fu is failing me.

I love the song Where do you go my lovely, what other songs are similar?

I watched Darjeeling Limited / Hotel Chevalier a while ago and I fell in love with one of the songs featured in these movies. The song is Where do you go my lovely by Peter Sarstedt. To me it conveys sophistication, melancholy and nostalgia. What other songs from this era would I probably like?

Citing Old Songs in the Public Domain

What is the correct way to reference a song in an academic paper if it is in the public domain due to age? I'm using the words of songs written in the 1800's, but I'm not sure what my obligation is for citations, and how I would go about referencing it, as most song citations including things like specific date, recording company, etc. Thanks!

Could I have heard 'O Siem' before 1995?

Wasn't the song 'O Siem' around before Susan Aglukark recorded it in 1995? I feel certain that I heard it in the 70s. In case it matters, I lived in Fort McMurray, Alberta, Canada as a child from 1971 to 1979, and it was during this period that I believe I heard the song on the radio. The Wikipedia entry for the song credits Aglukark as one of the writers and mentions no other versions. I also can't find any earlier reference on allmusic or via a Google search. Could it have been spelled differently? I think the lyrics were the same. I remember the title phrase being pronounced "oozy-em" and the inclusion of at least some of the same lines as in the chorus of the Aglukark song: "O Siem / We are all family / O Siem / We're all the same". I'm an amateur musician and have a very good music memory. If this is a false memory, it is an incredibly convincing one, and I have not previously (knowingly) experienced anything similar.
