My father loved Love, Sydney. He did not like caricatures and cutesy stuff. He enjoyed Swoozie, thought the little girl was lovely and not to precocious, and like the premise and their relationships were sweet, but not sentimental. .

The line from the song is:

Swoose - Swoose - Alexander is a Swoose,

Half swan, half goose, Alexander is a Swoose.

"Namesake" goes both ways. Swoosie Kurtz & the Swoose bomber are namesakes of each other.
