Song Writing,
Song writing, like a jitney, is a
thing that anybody can picl up. All
that is required is 50 pounds of New
York nerve and a good pair of scis
sors. The innocent artist made the illus
tration showing the song writer
thinking. A very fatal mistake. No
thinking is necessary for song writ
ing. The song writers for the last 50
years did all the noodle work for
writing present day melodies. "
To, bje sure of your song being a
hit, write something abouf down
south, even if you've only been as far
south as Detroit
The less sense there is to the song;
the bigger hit it will be. Something
like as follows:
Take mewhere the daffydills are
bloomin' '
I'm sick and tired of board and
I can hear my sweetheart yearnin'
And my he-art is burnin'
For some eats ,
A stack oVheats,
Oh boy!
I'm full of joy
Bye, Bye, when you hear that side
door Pullman slam .,
You'll know I'm on my way to Ala
bam' Alabam'.
"Is your wife economical?"
"Very. Look at the clothes M
makes me wear."
