The Lyrics

Born in the States
His roots Romo
Lucia, mom
Dad, Pietro
His real name was
Pierino
He would become
Perry Como
To the world known
C-O-M-O

A barber's son
Musician's soul
He played trombone
The boy Como
Was he not neat?
Perry Como
Was he all reet?
C-O-M-O
Legend begins
He is Como!

He had a show
Kraft Music Hall
Housewives and hubbies
He charmed them all
Was he too sweet?
No, not Como
Was he effete?
N-O, N-O
What was their cry?
Perry Como!
For whom they'd die?
C-O-M-O

(There's-a no doubt)
He was bland
With a style of singing to prove it
Butt in demand
Though he'd barely move it
He could croon them to sleep
Swoon them to sleep
All with a ballad or two
He was bland
But da money, made more than you

Was he too sweet?
No, not Como!
Was he effete?
N-O! N-O!
Was he not neat?
He was Como!
Was he all reet?
Perry Como!

He had the beat
C-O-M-O
The boring beat
C-O-M-O
He had a seat
C-O-M-O
A bouncy seat
C-O-M-O
He was so neat
C-O-M-O
He had two feet
C-O-M-O
He was elite
C-O-M-O
But not too sweet
No way, Como!

Nice tribute...PC was one of the greats...so relaxed, I believe he actually recorded all his songs while asleep.

Thanks--yeah, SCTV did a spoof of him once which showed him singing while draped across a sofa. I think Eugene Levy played him.

Neil Innes once did a TV ad for Quality Street chocolates spoofing Como singing 'Magic Moments'!

I'd like to see that. I love Neil Innes' songs.
