Extremely popular songs would also inspire parody songs expressing how sick the listener was of the repetition of the popular song. "Yes, We Have No Bananas" was parodied by " I've Got The Yes We Have No Bananas Blues". Songwriters Yellen & Ager followed up their own success " Crazy Words Crazy Tune" with " Vo Do Do De O Blues" --perhaps the composers became tired of the song themselves!

Agree about that Bill and Boyd Song.
And yet these are the times for novelty songs.
