Hi Sherm, Question queried from over at my blog. Did you write , or co-write, or know who did write the Fun Song?

Sherm said...

Hi Vincent...yep-- I wrote the words and the melody, and Brad Carow did the musical arrangement. The official credits read "Sherm Cohen/Brad Carow."

Steve Hillenburg helped me get started on the lyrics by suggesting, "do something like 'F is for Fun, U is for you and me'" -- I told the producer that Steve should share the writing credit, but Steve said he didn't want to be given credit.

I also got to play the ukulele part in the song ^_^ - It was originally just for the scratch track, but Brad left it in the mix (Thanks Brad).
