Would you believe this song was written by the same songwriting team that wrote The Wizard of Oz, Harold Arlen and E. Y. Harburg? It’s true. They created this number for comedian Groucho Marx to sing in the 1939 movie At the Circus. It’s a tour de force of comedic writing, in the style of Gilbert and Sullivan.
