Groucho Marx On Father's Day

The closest Groucho got to the lower east side was the address of his maternal grandparents, Louis and Fanny Schoenberg (or Schonberg). They were living st 376 E. 10th Street from 1880-1885. This information came from a Marx brothers' site Harry Ruby who wrote the song was a Bronx boy. In 1920 he was living at 347 E. 173rd Street
Today, Father, is Father's Day
And we're giving you a tie
It's not much we know
It is just our way of showing you
We think you're a regular guy...
You say that it was nice of us to bother
But it really was a pleasure to fuss
For according to our mother
You're our father
And that's good enough for us
Yes, that's good enough for us.
