Mad Suit

Dick recounts the story of how Mad was sued by a songwriter over a parody of a song (see also Episode 50).  He's forgotten who it was, and which song it was.  It was Irving Berlin suing Mad over a parody done by Frank Jacobs and Larry Siegel of the song "A Pretty Girl Is Like A Melody".  The case was decided in favour of Mad in 1964, in the celebrated case of Berlin v E. C. Publications, for the protection of parodies.  See Wikipedia entry.
Orginal Lyrics
I have an ear for music,
And I have an eye for a maid.
I like a pretty girlie,
With each pretty tune that's played.
They go together,
Like sunny weather goes with the month of may.
I've studied girls and music,
So I'm qualified to say

A pretty girl is like a melody
That haunts you night and day,
Just like the strain of a haunting refrain,
She'll start up-on a marathon
And run around your brain.
You can't escape she's in your memory.
By morning night and noon.
She will leave you and then come back again,
A pretty girl is just like a pretty tune.

Mad Lyrics
Louella Schwartz
Describes her malady
To anyone in sight.
She will complain!
Dramatize every pain!
And then she'll wail
How doctors fail
To help her sleep at night!

Louella Schwartz
Will say her malady
Is diagnosed all wrong!
When you think she is through,
She'll start on you!
Louella Schwartz
Is groaning the whole day long!
