I watched the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan that night in 1964. They seemed to us a strange lot at first, but they took this country by storm. I might do a segment on Ed Sullivan in black history. He was way out front in recognizing  and introducing new talent. There are a few black artists that got their start on his show.

Great idea, Earl. And now for something (almost) completely different. Today in 1876 at a little spot in Montana known as The Little Big Horn...

LARRY VERNE- "MR. CUSTER" ( W / LYRICS)


That famous day in history the men of the 7th Cavalry went riding on
And from the rear a voice was heard
A brave young man with a trembling word rang loud and clear
What am I doin' here?

Please Mr. Custer, I don't wanna go
Hey, Mr. Custer, please don't make me go
I had a dream last night about the comin' fight
Somebody yelled "Attack!"
And there I stood with a arrow in my back.

Please Mr. Custer, I don't wanna go - Forward Ho! --aaww

Look at them bushes out there
They're moving and there's a injun behind every one
Hey, Mr. Custer-you mind if I be excused the rest of the afternoon?
HEY CHARLIE, DUCK YER HEAD!
Hmm, you're a little bit late on that one, Charlie
ooh, I bet that smarts!

They were sure of victory, the men of the 7th Cavalry, as they rode on

But then from the rear a voice was heard
That same brave voice with the trembling word rang loud and clear
What am I doin' here?

Please Mr. Custer, I don't wanna go
Listen, Mr. Custer, please don't make me go
There's a redskin a'waitin' out there, just fixin' to take my hair
A coward I've been called cuz I don't wanna wind up dead or bald

Please Mr. Custer, I don't wanna go - Forward HO! --aaww

I wonder what the injun word for friend is?
Let's see-friend-- kemo sabe, that's it
KEMO SABE!, HEY OUT THERE-KEMO SABE!
Nope, that itn't it
Look at them durned injuns
They're runnin' around like a bunch of wild Indians-heh, heh, heh
Nah, this ain't no time for jokin'

Wade Bowen - "Trouble" - Official Music Video - Director: Evan Kaufmann


I wouldn’t say I didn’t see her comin’
A light that bright’s hard to miss in a place that dark
She said, Yes, to a drink while her fingers fumbled
with a cross on a chain that was swingin’ above her heart
When the mornin’ sun set the midnight sky on fire
She left me like a thief not knowin’ what she took
I wish trouble always looked that good
I wish trouble always looked that good

I was still a little nervous when I got the courage to call
that bright red number she’d written on the back of my hand
A bottle of wine rode shotgun with a rose
while I was drivin’ ‘cross town thinkin’ ‘bout turnin’ back
Now there’s a porch light burnin’ a hole right through my windshield
There’s a silhouette standin’ at the screen door waitin’ for me
I wish trouble always looked that good
I wish trouble always looked that good

I know a million reasons not to go where I’m headed
Oh but when she smiles I can’t even think of one
I wish trouble always looked that good
I wish trouble always looked that good
I believe in making the world safe for our children, but not for our children's children, because I don't think children should be having sex.

I remember when Mr Custer first came out. It was hilarious.
Speaking of the Beatles, this is my all time favorite from them:

And last, but certainly not least - one of the strangest parody songs known to man...

Jimmy Cross - I Want My Baby Back (1965)


 :tongue

I didn't write it - I only found it on youtube and posted it for your listening pleasure.  *lick*

This saturday my wife and I will celebrate our 45th anniversary.  We took notice of this couple and thought this would be a good way to celebrate. Then I thought about my knee surgery and figured it's not a good idea right now, but wouldn't we all love to be able to have this kind of fun at their age?
