🦋 Who put the benzedrine in Mrs. Murphy's Ovaltine?

Pet clued me in to the existence of this marvelous Harry Gibson video. Here he is singing "Handsome Harry the Hipster" and making funny faces:

Update: The tune that's the title of this post is here: "Who Put the Benzedrine in Mrs. Murphy's Ovaltine?".

🦋 Harry Gibson revisited

Ever since I posted the video of Harry Gibson playing "Harry the Hipster" several months ago, I get Google hits searching for his more famous song, "Who Put the Benzedrine in Mrs. Murphy's Ovaltine?" -- frequently enough to make me curious. So I went and looked it up. Cool tune! And since today seems to be a good day for posting YouTube videos (here chez READIN), let's put another one up. Take it away, Harry!
