The Pom Pom Song

 
The confrontational song in Them Thar Hills, where Stan kept interrupting Ollie with "pom pom" was actually an early example of product placement. Babe had made a hit record (78rpm) with Ambrose And His Orchestra, called The Old Spinning Wheel, "vocal refrain: Oliver Hardy around this time, but nobody seemed to notice the embedded "plug" for it. Reports say there are about 100 extant copies of the disc around the world, mostly in the USA and  in various museums. The vocal refrain was included on a tape cassette compilation from the 1980s but for all practical purposes the record has been lost.
The song is a charming ditty of yearning for a distant past. The main theme of the tune is known from the movie (briefly reiterated in Tit For Tat) and it's fairly clear where the "pom poms" should go. Here are the lyrics:
 
The Old Spinning Wheel
There's an old spinning wheel in the parlour

Spinning dreams of a long-long-ago,

Spinning dreams of an old-fashioned mother

And  a maid with her old-fashioned beau.

 

Sometimes it seems that I can hear them in the moonlight

At the organ singing softly sweet and low

 

There's an old spinning wheel in the parlour

Spinning dreams of a long-long-ago.

In Laurel and Hardy's "The Hoose-Gow" that opening tune is "That's My Weakness Now"
