    "Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh" (also "Faddah") is Allan Sherman's best known song parody.

    The song was first released in 1963 on his LP "My Son, the Nut", and was entirely rewritten for a performance in 1964 on Johnny Carson's Tonight Show. In 1965, Swedish/Dutch troubadour Cornelis Vreeswijk translated it loosely into Swedish.

    The original words

    Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh

    Here I am at Camp Granada

    Camp is very entertaining

    And they say we'll have some fun if it stops raining!

    I went hiking with Joyce Fivey,

    He developed poison ivy.

    You remember Lennard Skynard,

    He got tomain poisoning last night after dinner!

    All the counselors hate the waiters,

    And the lake has alligators!

    And the head coach wants no sissies,

    So he reads to us from something called 'Ulysses'.

    No, I don't want (this should scare ya),

    But my bunkmate has malaria!

    You remember Geoffrey Hardy,

    They're about to organize a searching party!

    Take me home, oh mother, father.

    Take me home, I hate Grenada.

    Don't leave me out in the forest,

    Where I might get eaten by a bear!

    Take me home, I promise that I will not make noise,

    Or mess the house with other boys.

    Oh please don't make me stay;

    I've been here one whole day!

    Dearest father, darling mother,

    How's my precious little brother?

    Let me come home if you miss me;

    I would even let Aunt Bertha hug and kiss me!

    Wait a minute; it stopped hailing.

    Guys are swimming, guys are sailing.

    Playing baseball; gee that's better.

    Mother, father, kindly disregard this letter!

    Allen Sherman sang that song. He did a few parodys back in the 60's or 70's.

    He also did a parody on the Petula Clark song "Downtown" that is pretty funny.

    A friend of mine had a record with that on it and I taped it and kept it for years, but I do not know who did it. I love that song.
