The Lyrics

I just had the most wonderful weekend. Last Wednesday, copy number 3,444 (of a limited edition of 4,000) of "My Son, The Box," a 6-CD set of almost everything ever recorded by Allan Sherman, arrived at my door. I've been playing it ever since. It was a humbling experience to hear the master at work--especially his brilliant, previously unreleased Jewish spoof of "My Fair Lady." The following is in honor of Allan Sherman's contribution the world of musical parodies--and to celebrate his birthday, which, as anyone who owns a copy of "My Son, The Celebrity" knows, is November 30.
Allan Sherman, he was funny
And so briefly, made good money
Jewish humor, made this boy laugh
And he was so funny, he even made Goys laugh

He wrote songs like Al 'n Yetta
Sara Jackman sounded betta
Then that stupid, folkie French song
And the liverwurst has been sitting there too long

You remember Harry Lewis?
Uncle Max and themes so Jewish
Oh his gags were very funny
And he often used words that were kinda punny

Harry Lewis, Disraeli
Boy with Seltzer, My Fair Lady
No One's Perfect, Mrs. Goldfarb
Even fat people were subject to his smart barbs

Teach me how, oh Allan Sherman
Help me write a parody
That makes folks laugh
Like I do when I hear you singing songs Aura Lee

Teach me how, I promise
I will not steal lines
I will not write about Greenbaum
Or make up songs about Oh Boy, or Hippopotami

Goodbye Melvin Rose of Texas
Mr. Jack Cohn was the best-est
Where's the tailor? With My Zelda
Yes that Allan Sherman, he was quite a fella

When I'm in the mood for loving
You are in the mood for herring
Thank you Allan, inspiration
And I really do appreciate your sharing!

Oh boy! Thank you for saluting the Sultan of Salami. I laughed and I crumbled, just like a piece halvah.

Loved it. I like Allen Sherman's work. My sister hated the original parody. Each time she hears that movement of "The Dance of the Hours" the OS, I suppose you'd call it, she grumbles "F--- Allen Sherman"! I too have ruined a song or two for her. Hee-hee!
