JJ Lyr Req: Pittsburgh Pennsylvania (...a pawnshop... (26) RE: Word to Pawnshop in Pittsburgh 01 Aug 07


Make sure to put that "h" at the end of Pittsburgh!

The song shares its first phrase with "Little Boxes," but after that the songs part company.

Bob Merrill, who wrote other pop hits including "How Much Is That Doggie in the Window?", went on to Broadway, where he wrote music and lyrics for such shows as NEW GIRL IN TOWN, TAKE ME ALONG and CARNIVAL, despite being unable to read or write music. He composed all his songs on a toy xylophone.

He may best be remembered for the lyrics for FUNNY GIRL (music by Jule Styne), which gave us the song "People," Barbara Streisand's first smash hit.
