Actually, I think the credit on that one has to go to Martin Mull (And
His Fabulous Furniture) - those lyrics (slightly different last line
but the same joke) were part of the "Ukelele Blues" that he recorded in
Not only an writer, comedian, actor and musician - he also paints some
very interesting oil paintings! I met him at a book signing a long
time ago and asked which of his talents was most important to him, as I
recall he said the painting was most satisfying...
