Lighter Lyr Req: A Gob is a Slob, Wherever He May Be (23) RE: Lyr Req: A Gob is a Slob, Wherever He May Be 28 Apr 21


The LOC has Halpert's papers, which Legman says include a number of bawdy songs. Halpert did a lot of collecting in New Jersey.

It seems that Brand somehow heard "A Gob is a Slob," rewrote it as "A Guy is a Guy," then rewrote it again as "A Gob is a Slob" with "Guy is a Guy" structure and touches.

Maybe you can get the LOC to send you a scan?

Let us know!
