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 »

Thrill me with your green stamps
I love your little green stamps
I took collecting green stamps
I love the way they look

Oh how I love to pick them
I pick them up, and lick them
I lick them, then I stick them
In my brown green stamp book

All day and night I'm dreaming
I'm dreaming of redeeming
My green stamps for a toaster,
So gleaming and deluxe

Oh how it will thrill me,
And please me and fulfill me,
To know my toaster only cost me
Fourteen hundred bucks

I drive up to the market
I stop my car and park it
I buy a lot of strange things
Of which I've never heard

I buy, though it's not urgent,
Two truckloads of detergent,
Three hundred pounds of bird seed,
Though I don't have a bird

Some extract of vanilla,
Enough to feed Godzilla
Then I'll trade all my green stamps
For something I can drive

A car is what I hope for,
What I bought all that soap for
They promise me the first Studebaker
Made in 1965
