Autograph Lyrics inscribed and signed: "Irv Caesar" on verso of photograph of him (b/w, 5x7). In full: "Dear John - This is the best I can do. I am not a musician - composer - just a lyric writer. 'Picture you upon my knee. Tea for two and two for tea. Best wishes." Irving Caesar (1895-1996) wrote over 100 songs, including "Tea for Two", "Sometimes I'm Happy," "Swanee" (with Gershwin), "Crazy Rhythm", "Imagination" and "Animal Crackers in My Soup" and the Broadway musical No No Nanette. He collaborated on songs and shows with George Gershwin, Vincent Youmas, George M. Cohan and many others, and wrote several of Al Jolson's songs. When asked which came first, the music or the lyrics, Caesar replied, "What comes first is the contract." Creased and soiled, with vertical fold very visible on photo side. Otherwise, fine condition.
