Medley: BARRY IS THE BABY'S NAME / HOROWITZ / GET ON THE GARDEN FREEWAY
As recorded by Allan Sherman on "My Son, the Celebrity" (1963)
[Tune: Mary's a Grand Old Name*]
We'll call him Barry, Barry, that'll be the baby's name.
We thought of Lance or Josh, but oh, my gosh, they're not the same.
But if it's Barry, Barry, that's a name with style and grace.
And if he's not a he, it still could be, like in Barrie Chase.
H-O-R-O-W-I-T-Z spells Horowitz.
Yesterday I took my girlfriend Peggy
To watch him play a concert at Carnegie.
V-L-A-D-I-M-I-R, that's Vladimir.
And he plays piano good like a real piano player should.
Horowitz, hear, hear!
[Tune: Give My Regards to Broadway*]
Get on the Garden Freeway when you come out to visit me.
You'll see a great big shopping center with a brand new A&P.
Turn left at Kosciusko. Continue to the third stoplight.
Then turn around and drive right back because I won't be home tonight.
* All 3 of these songs are by George M. Cohan.
