Joe Offer Origins: Who wrote 'On top of spaghetti...' (14) RE: Help: Who wrote 'On top of spaghetti...' 17 Mar 19

OK, so back in 2000, I said very definitively that this song was written by Tom Glazer. But how do we KNOW that it was written by Tom Glazer? Can anybody come up with evidence?
America wants to know.....
It's not always definitive, but the Harry Fox Agency utility is a reasonably good resource. It has this listed as HFA song code 040800, written by Tom Glazer. Publisher is Larry Spier Music LLC OBO Songs Music, Inc. It's represented by Harry Fox Agency, so you can get a recording license from them if you decide to record a hit CD. Cost is about 8 cents a copy, with a 500-copy minimum.
Another favorite resource,, says this was the title song for a 1963 album by Tom Glazer and the Do-Re-Mi Children's Chorus.

-Joe, not so certain of things as he was in 2000-
