JOSEPH B. YOUNG
Famous lyricist writes a poem stating that all this sad world needs is kindness
Autograph poem signed: "J.B. Young" in black ink. 1 page, 6¾x4 August 25, 1913. In full: "So many gods So many creeds So many ways that wind and wind. While just the art of being kind is all this sad world needs-". Joseph B. Young (1889-1939) was a famed lyricist, who began his career singing for music publishing firms in New York during World War I, and began touring through Europe as an entertainer for the troops. His lyrics for "Don't Blame it All on Broadway" became his first successful song, reaching the number 2 spot on the charts, recorded by the Peerless Quartet. Following his first bit of fame, he wrote his second song "When the Angelus is Ringing" (1914) which again reached top 5 on the charts. He began a partnership with co-lyricist Sam M. Lewis (1885-1959), which would carry on for 14 years. The pair was first known for producing lyrics for the Broadway show Robinson Crusoe, Jr. which included the songs "Where Did Robinson Crusoe Go With Friday on Saturday Night?' and "Yaaka Hula Hickey Dula". Again, both songs reaching the number 2 spot on the charts. Young would continue to work with Lewis penning lyrics for notable songs such as "Laugh, Clown, Laugh" "Have a Little Faith in Me" and "Absence Makes the Heart Grow Fonder". After the dissolve of his partnership with Sam M. Lewis in 1930, he continued to write hit songs, but never again collaborated with another lyricist. Some of his solo writing includes songs such as "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down and Write Myself a Letter" "You're Beautiful Tonight My Dear" and "You're My Everything". In addition to his career as one of the greats from Tin Pan Alley, he was also a director from 1926 until his death in 1939. Multiple notches at edges. Lightly toned. Light moisture stains at edges. Unknown residue stain at lower left edge. Otherwise, fine condition.
