Thank You, My Son - My Son, the Celebrity - Netflix
My Son, the Celebrity is a musical comedy album by Allan Sherman, released in the United States by Warner Bros. in January 1963. The album was the second of three straight albums by Sherman to reach #1 on the Billboard album charts. It reached #1 on Billboard's Top 150 Best Selling LPs (Monaural) chart for the week ending March 9, 1963. It was released less than three months after My Son, the Folk Singer, which reached #1 on the same chart in December 1962. My Son, the Celebrity followed the same template as My Son, the Folk Singer, mixing comic parodies of popular songs with cultural references and Jewish humor. Lou Busch once again provided orchestration.

“The Bronx Bird Watcher” - A talking / singing bird with a Jewish accent. “Harvey and Sheila” - Filled with alphabetical references: IBM, PTA, GOP, USA, etc. “When I Was a Lad” - Recast as the story of a young man who succeeds at an advertising agency: So I thank old Yale / And I thank the Lord / And I also thank my father / Who is chairman of the board. “Shticks of One and Half a Dozen of the Other” is a stylistic followup to “Shticks and Stones”, another medley of short parodies, some Jewish-oriented, some not. For example: New words to “Molly Malone”, describing her as “Cockeyed and muscle-bound”. On top of Old Smokey / All covered with hair / Of course I'm referring / To Smokey the Bear (On Top of Old Smoky) When you go to the delicatessen store / Don't buy the liverwurst (Down by the Riverside)
As with My Son, The Folk Singer, almost all the songs on the album contain some Jewish reference, or at least a main character or characters with apparently Jewish names. “Al 'n' Yetta” - References to TV shows of the day Cohan medley: “Barry is the Baby's Name” “Horowitz” “Get On The Garden Freeway”
