And Papa said to Mama as he passed around the blackeyed peas
"Well, Billy Joe never had a lick of sense, pass the biscuits, please"
"There's five more acres in the lower forty I've got to plow"
And Mama said it was shame about Billy Joe, anyhow
Seems like nothin' ever comes to no good up on Choctaw Ridge
And now Billy Joe MacAllister's jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge

Our kid has been on a Rodgers & Hammerstein musical Netflix kick lately, and it turns out that you didn't hear good lyrics like that in the songs written back then, either...

She keeps moet et chandon
In her pretty cabinet
let them eat cake she says
Just like marie antoinette
A built-in remedy
For kruschev and kennedy
At anytime an invitation
You cant decline

Caviar and cigarettes
Well versed in etiquette
Extraordinarily nice



I love it, thanks for taking me back in time.

Funny memory, have not thought about in years until I heard Running Scared by Roy Orbison, 1961. Group of us found a sleazy, cheap dive gentleman's club that would serve underage. That song came on the jukebox prompting a discussion as to the last word of said song. What followed was I watched two of my best friends have a cowboy movie saloon fight over what that word was. He or me was the word.

Now see, if you'da had Google in 1961, they could have just kept peaceably drinking:

(Roy Orbison and Joe Melson)
Just runnin' scared each place we go
So afraid that he might show
Yeah, runnin' scared, what would I do
If he came back and wanted you

Just runnin' scared, feelin' low
Runnin' scared, you love him so
Just runnin' scared, afraid to lose
If he came back which one would you choose

Then all at once he was standing there
So sure of himself, his head in the air
My heart was breaking, which one would it be
You turned around and walked away with me.
