Story about this misheard lyric by: Doug Montgomery

I thought at first Allan was singing these lyrics (set to 'An English Country Garden') in some allusion to a line in mad Magazine about a year earlier, 'You'll live just like a Pharaoh.' I didn't realize I had it wrong until I saw the printed lyrics in a biography of Allan Sherman a few years later.
