St. Bob has a juke box in his brain. It doesn’t even require coins—it just works Around the Clock (another song) and spills out into my world. Maybe it’s called a Juke Bob.
Either way, I am treated to random songs every morning. Most often they’re tunes I have never heard in my life. But he knows every word, who sang it, and what year.
See if you have
tapped into this same amazing service. Do you know the following songs?
Be Down to Getcha in a Taxi, Honey
Put Your Shoes on, Lucy, Don’t You Know You’re in the City?
Somebody Done Changed the Lock on My Door
Thank God and Greyhound She’s Gone
Got the Gold Mine and I Got the Shaft
I Got Chicken on my Brain
Here’s a quarter (Call Someone Who Cares)
Out on the Windswept Desert
Can’t Roller Skate in a Buffalo Herd
the Phone Doesn’t Ring, it’s Me
Could You Believe Me When I Said I Love You When You Know I’ve Been a Liar All
My Life? (This, Bob says, was from The Royal Wedding with Fred Astaire
and Ginger Rogers)
The list is
much longer, of course. But I have to go put my shoes on and buy some chicken.
Speaking of buying, check out the amazingly low
price of my books!
