A happy tune it
Makes me smile
But lyrics ruin it
Just because you can don’t mean you should
Would take a whack
At writing words to Dvorak
And just like mine they’re not so good…
Nine lyricists including Al Dubin (Lullaby of Broadway) and Mitchell Parish (Stardust) tried their hand at gilding Dvorak’s lily of a tune back in the day. I hooked them together to create a “Humoresque-athon” – medley of mirth. Who do you think best captured the spirit of the old Czech master?
