“I'm the Man that Wrote Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay”


"I am the Man that Wrote Ta-ra-ra Boom-de-ay, Promise me you won't give it away...." The singer was a poor showman until he produced the famous song. Now the police seek him, people throw brickbats, and not even Shakespeare can equal his claim


For the actual (uncertain) authorship of "Ta-ra-ra Boom-der-e," see that song. - RBW
