How can we forget P. T. Barnum & Charlie Chan? I guess Uncle Sam comes under this heading, too.
OH! - and then, of course, there's ME! - Stagger Lee!
And his (my?) nemesis, Billy DeLyon
Rosemary
Althea, and Ophelia
If we count NRPS songs that Jerry played on & were often performed during the "evening with" format,
we have Henry, Amos White and Charlie Jones.

OK - someone else's turn
Now I don't know, but I've been told, if the horse won't pull, you gotta carry the load.
I don't know whose back's that strong. Maybe find out before too long.

Scheherazade appears in What's Become of the Baby?

Sheherazade gathering stories to tell
from primal gold fantasy petals that fall
But where is the child
who played with the sun chimes
and chased the cloud sheep
to the regions of rhyme?
