The Lyrics

Born a Russian, "85"
Just a junkman, that was all
When he bought a "Burley Q"
Hollywood gave him a call

Found success in things he tried
Made the movie screens glow bright
Films with style, reflecting pride
L B Mayer made 'em right..

Gable, Tracy, Fred Astaire,
Were unknown's, he made 'em grand
Judy Garland, Mickey Rooney,
They found stardom, by his hand..

Made "Ben Hur" "Wizard of Oz"
"The Good Earth" was out of sight
Classic genius, that he was
L B Mayer made 'em right..

He believed in Mom and Dad
Squeaky clean films, not of sin
Called him "Mr. Motion Picture"
Who don't love "Gone With The Wind"?

Classic cartoons we have seen
Came with his sarcastic bite
Till Leukemia took it's toll,
L B Mayer made 'em right..

L B Mayer made 'em right
