Spike Jones and the City Slickers


Daisy Deadhead said...

Now me and my mate were back at the shack
We had Spike Jones on the box
She said, "I can't take the way he sings
But I love to hear him talk"

Now that just gave my heart a fall
To the bottom of my feet
And I swore as I took another pour
My Bessie can't be beat

Spike was a genius; i used to listen to this song when i was a kid, it was on a compilation album my folks owned, great songs of the 40's, 50's etc; i loved this song, also Vaughn Monroe's "Ghost Riders in the Sky"; nice memories.
