Stapled illustrated wrappers; Thin 8vo. 15 pp. Verse by Nash with music by Robert Armbruster, originally performed in 1933 for the Dutch Treat Club show. With illustrations by Otto Soglow. (All three prominent figures of their day.) A send up of politicians and the Wall Street Class, and other "S.O.B's"; lyrics that still ring true today: "I'm a debit to my country but a credit to my dad/ The most expensive senator this country's ever had". A Bowderlized version was printed in the author's HAPPY DAYS; this is the first unexpurgated version. About very good, yapped edges worn.
