Sweet and Sassy


I enjoy most genres of music. Country is my favorite, with rock ‘n roll (from the ’50s and ’60s) being my next favorite.

So, I just had to share the following after receiving an email from a church friend:

Some of the artists of the ’60s are revising their hits with new lyrics to accommodate aging baby boomers.

They include: Bobby Darin — Splish, Splash, I Was Havin’ a Flash.

Herman’s Hermits — Mrs. Brown, You’ve Got a Lovely Walker

Ringo Starr — I Get By With a Little Help From Depends

The Bee Gees — How Can You Mend a Broken Hip

Roberta Flack— The First Time Ever I Forgot Your Face

Johnny Nash — I Can’t See Clearly Now

Paul Simon— Fifty Ways to Lose Your Liver

The Commodores — Once, Twice, Three Times to the Bathroom

Marvin Gaye — Heard It Through the Grape Nuts

Procol Harem— A Whiter Shade of Hair

Leo Sayer — You Make Me Feel Like Napping

The Temptations — Papa’s Got a Kidney Stone

Abba— Denture Queen

Tony Orlando — Knock 3 Times On The Ceiling If You Hear Me Fall

Helen Reddy — I Am Woman, Hear Me Snore

Leslie Gore— It’s My Procedure, and I’ll Cry If I Want To.

And last but NOT least:

Willie Nelson — On the Commode Again

Hope you enjoyed it as much as I did. And I bet you sang the songs in your mind as you read them. I did.

See you when I return from vacation!!!!
