My teaser for this week is:-
“Then there was the jukebox, a beat up old Rock-Ola with a hundred or so 45s, although only a half dozen or so ever seemed to be played — and played over and over. These included Bob Dylan’s “Lay Lady Lay”, Arlo Guthrie’s cover of “City of New Orleans,” Carly Simon’s “You’re So Vain,” The Grateful Dead’s “Truckin’,” Chicago’s “25 or 6 to 4,” and a novelty song titled “Loving You Has Made Me Bananas”:
Oh, your red scarf matches your eyes
You closed your cover before striking
Father had the shipfitter blues
Loving you has made me bananas.
Oh, you burned your fingers that evening
While my back was turned.
I asked the waiter for iodine
But I dined all alone.
