The best parody version of this tune was the Les Brown ca.1940's record with
Butch Stone's vocal. My memory of it is a foggy half-century old but the
best remembered line was "Put a smile on you face and keep your big mouth
shut!..because a good man now a days is hard to fine!." Someone must have a
copy out there -- mine went the way of 78's long ago and many moves.
