Mrs. Johnson, You're Wearing Your Dresses Way Too High

     And it's reported you been drinkin and a runnin round with men and going wild.

     I've been listing some old record albums (not mine, wish I still had mine) on Ebay and it has brought back so many memories.
     When I was in fifth grade, the music teacher said every kid had to get up and sing a song in front of the whole class or else they would get an F. She said we could pick any song we wanted. So yes, I got up and sang Harper Valley PTA. She just sat there kind of dumbfounded. She couldn't say anything because she had said ANY song. And she couldn't give me an F either. Want to hear it just one more time for giggles and kicks?
      And speaking of albums, one of the albums I bought with my own money was K.C. and The Sunshine Band. The featured song was "Shake Your Booty". My mom said that was not a very nice song for a Christian girl to listen to. Here is that one, it will make you dance in your computer chair:
     One more I can't leave out when discussing records: The Telephone Man. I cannot BELIEVE my mom bought me that one when I asked for it but she did. She must have thought I didn't understand what it meant. Or maybe SHE didn't understand. Which would not surprise me at all. Because I must have been 30 years old when I had to explain to her what it meant to "moon" somebody. She had never heard of it. She said "Well who would ever do that?" Here are the telephone man lyrics:

Doo lolly lolly shicky boo shicky bum
