   The first uses of the term were associated with
    African Americans. Henry notes that "The Mills
    Brothers learned to harmonize in their father's
    barber shop in Piqua, Ohio. Several other well
    known African American gospel quartets were
    founded in neighborhood barber shops.

   The Dapper Dans are a barbershop quartet
    that performs at Disneyland in Anaheim,
    California (since 1959), at the Magic Kingdom
    at the Walt Disney World Resort (since 1971),
    and at Hong Kong Disneyland in Lantau Island,
    Hong Kong (since 2005). The Dans have been
    tested at Disneyland Paris in the past, but were
    cut due to cost management.

   You can be serenaded by the Dans at the
    Magic Kingdom in Florida while having your
    hair cut in a real, working barbershop on Main
    Street there. The Dans at Hong Kong
    Disneyland stroll up and down Main Street from
    Town Square. The Dans at Disneyland can be
    seen on their Schwinn custom 4-seater bicycle
    (commissioned by Walt Disney himself) and in
    various locations around Main Street.
                        Mr. Sandman
A sandman is said to make you sleep and therefore brings you your dreams
Dreams happen while you are sleeping but a dream is also something you hope for.
In this song they are talking about a “dream women”.

Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
(bung, bung, bung, bung)
Make her the cutest that I've ever seen
 (bung, bung, bung, bung)
Give her two lips like roses and clover
(bung, bung, bung, bung)
Then tell her that her lonesome nights are over.
Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream.
    ("bung, bung, bung, bung".)
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream
make her complexion like peaches and cream
Give her the word that I'm not a rover
Then tell her that her lonesome nights are over.
Sandman, I'm so alone
Don't have nobody to call my own
Please turn on your magic beam
Mr. Sandman, bring me a dream.
Mr. Sandman bring us a dream
Give her a pair of eyes with a "come-hither" gleam
Give her a lonely heart like Pagliacci
And lots of wavy hair like Liberace
Mr Sandman, someone to hold (someone to hold)
Would be so peachy before we're too old
So please turn on your magic beam
Mr Sandman, bring us, please, please, please
Mr Sandman, bring us a dream.
   ("bung, bung, bung, bung".)
