It's an old musical and I was pretty sure it had Betty Grable in it. She is with a gangster that has a song he can't get out of his head:
"One rock, two rocks, three rocks, four rocks
Rock pile dust get off my shoes"

And so it goes. It is driving me INSANE thinking of this. Please help me out!

It's "The Girl Can't Help It," with Jayne Mansfield. The gangster was played by Edmond O'Brien, who at one point is seen briefly screening an old Betty Grable film in his home. His character, Marty "Fats" Murdock, writes the song "Rock Pile Rock."

Oh wow, thank you so much! Google searches have proved fruitless over the years and I was beginning to think I imagined the whole thing. I've had that song stuck in MY head for almost 8 years now, with no way of figuring out how to see it again.

Thanks again!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
