. . . once New Amsterdam.
Why they changed it? I don’t know.
I am aware of a previous tread regarding this song:
But recently, on the radio I heard a classic recording of a comedy show, and darned if the comedians were not doing virtually a word by word of the “They might be giants” song! Sadly I missed both the beginning and the end of the show so I could not identify the players. Does anybody know who were those comedians? FWIW I think the recording and commercials sounded circa 1950.
And oh yeah: Why they changed New Amsterdam to New York?
