“Around the Bend In Eighty Days,” by S. J. Perelman. The New Yorker, 1/8/1972.
Perelman claims Jimmy Durante was singing this in the old Parody Club in 1928 (Durante started out as a ragtime pianist and added funny comments to his playing):
A boy sat under the Anheuser Bush,
The rain ‘twas coming down in Schlitz,
He rose, a sad Budweiser boy,
Pabst yes, Pabst no, Pabst yes.
Sounds like Durante (before he met Mrs. Calabash). Sounds like S. J. Perelman, too.
