Have you heard "Oh Sweet
But here's something it doesn't share with too many other hit songs: It was written by a 96-YEAR-OLD MAN. His name is Fred Stobaugh . . . and he wrote it about his wife of 75 years, who recently passed away.
Fred originally wrote the lyrics as part of a contest . . . and then they were turned into a song, which is performed by JACOB COLGAN.
TMZ reports that Fred is making quite a bit of money off the song . . . but there aren't really any specific numbers. Supposedly, he's planning to use the money to purchase "new hearing aids."
(Above is a nine-minute video that tells Fred's story. It was uploaded on YouTube back in July, and now has over 3 MILLION VIEWS. You can hear the song at the mark.)
