"Let the Rest of the World Go By" (parody)
To a dance I did go,
Where the gowns were cut low,"
My late father, born in 1906, told me he'd heard this parody when he attended vaudeville shows. I'll assume he was at least a teen, so that probably would have been the early part of the 1920s. He was delighted when I found the lyrics on the internet.
