He became known as an accomplished lyricist, although he also continued writing music. In 1901 he started working with William Jerome. They collaborated on many songs which were used in Broadway shows, including "Mr. Dooley," sung by the title character in The Wizard of Oz, as well as the Ziegfeld Follies. Their biggest hit together was the 1910 song "Chinatown, My Chinatown," still popular with Dixieland bands.

Schwartz and Jerome stopped working together in 1913. Schwartz continued working on show tunes through 1937. He died in Los Angeles, California. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
