Harry's mother - "She wrote 'Marchin' Down Broadway,' which Irving Berlin offered her a thousand bucks for, I found out. She thought he wanted the whole song, so she said no. He may really have wanted it; I've heard stories about him. Then she wrote 'Little Cowboy.' That was about the extent of her songwriting. I think she wrote poetry at night, you know, and thing like that. She once wrote something which she sent to a publisher, called 'I Think I'm Going Mad,' and they sent it back and said, 'So do we!'" - Harry.
