Back in 1965 there was a musical variety show on TV called Fanfare.
In one of the episodes, master song parodist Allan Sherman got together with Peter Noone, the lead singer of Herman's Hermits to create song parodies in real time.
First Sherman wrote an American version of the British pop song Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Daughter.
Then after Sherman sang a new version of his hit Hello Muddah Hello Faddah, the two singers collaborated in creating a British version of the classic funny song about summer camp.
