Could I have the root origin, please?

Last night I had a dream about a spelling bee.

A girl was asked to spell "tootsie roll."

I was already amused by this (and I am not taking credit for this, either. I can't claim the humor in my dreams as my own original thought).

To make things even better, the girl asked for a clarification of meaning.

She wanted to know whether this was referring to the candy...

...or the song.

Interestingly enough, they are in fact spelled differently.
