Allan Sherman

Allan Sherman (born Allan Copelon; November 30, 1924 – November 20, 1973) was an American comedy writer and television producer who became famous as a song parodist in the early 1960s. His first album, My Son, the Folk Singer (1962), became the fastest-selling record album up to that time. His biggest hit single was "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh", a comic novelty in which a boy describes his summer camp experiences to the tune of Ponchielli's Dance of the Hours. more »


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Like the beat comma beat comma beat of the tom hyphen tom,
When the jungle shadows fall
Like the tick hyphen tick hyphen tock of the stately clock,
As it stands against the wall
Like the drip comma drip comma drip of the raindrops,
When the summer shower is through
Some voice within me keeps repeating
Colon, quotation mark
You comma you comma you, exclamation point
Close quotation, period, dash

Night and day, comma
You are the one, dash
Only to you comma beneath the moon comma and under the sun
Whether near to me or far, dot dot dot,
It's no matter comma darling comma where you are, dash
I think of you, comma
Night and day, period new paragraph
Night and day, exclamation point
Under the height of me dash
There's an oh such a hungry yearning comma
Burning parenthesis inside of me
Closed parenthesis, period
(Well, "inside of me" is a parenthetical phrase that describes where the yearning is burning)
And torment won't be through
Until you let me spend my life making love to you asterisk!
('Cause there's a footnote at the bottom that tells who's making love to who)
Spend my life making love to you
Day and night?
Night and day, question mark
Night and day
