    “It wasn’t me” (Chuck Berry, 1963)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VI55lG7ZAvM
    It wasn’t me, baby, no it wasn’t me, baby.
    It must have been some other body, uh uh, baby, it wasn’t me

    Said he was cold, tired and hungry, came a begin for bread;
    The lady took him and fed him breakfast in bed.
    It wasn’t me, Boss, it wasn’t me, it wasn’t me.
    It must have been some other body, uh uh, Boss, it wasn’t me.

    You say you saw my car parked in the drive in one night;
    Came over to speak to me, I was out of sight
    I wasn’t me, baby, uh uh, baby, it wasn’t me
    It must have been some other body, uh uh, Sarge, it wasn’t me

    Yes, a shrewd young whipper snapper love to run and play;
    But the draft got him, they inducted him today
    It wasn’t me, Sarge, uh uh, Sarge, it wasn’t me
    It must have been some other body, uh uh, Sarge, it wasn’t me

    I met a German girl in England who was goin to school in France
    Said we dance in Mississippi at a Alpha Keppa dance
    It wasn’t me, Officer, no, Officer, it wasn’t me
    It must have been some other body, uh uh, Officer, it wasn’t me

    Wailing down the freeway, testing out the cruisin?power;
    State trooper trailing, clocked him ninety miles per hour
    It wasn’t me, Sheriff; Uh huh, Sheriff, it wasn’t me
    Ah! It must have been some other body, uh uh, Sheriff, it wasn抰 me

    Calling for brave young soldiers, needed on the front row;
    Lieutenant said, which one of ya’ll volunteer to go, It wasn’t me, Captain, uh uh, Captain, it wasn’t me
    It must have been some other body, uh uh, Captain, it wasn’t me

    I was somewhere yesterday where they had VHS on TV. Some reality show about some gal and her sugardaddy.
    The gal’s mom is on the show and is pushing some perfume line. (Sigh) As I watch, the mom goes in to talk to a legit perfume broker – and she wants to showcase some fragrance based on feminine parts -using urban slang and….well that was as much as I could take.
    I’m just disheartened. I had no idea we’d devolved so far as a society as that. It’s ON TV.

    That wasn’t a threat, it was advice. Evidently it went over your head. Or under your radar. Or it just plain Blue Bayou. I got more cliches if you really want ‘em.

    The smart youth of today don’t reject what the older generation has to offer out of hand, with snide remarks and a petulant attitude. Old and new both have much to offer, but rejecting repetitive, obscene, and inane “music” is not a sign of intolerance of youth. It’s a sign of good taste.

    There are plenty of young people with a lot to offer, who certainly are not “too dumb to function.” If you’re one of them, you have a funny way of showing it. I say again, get over yourself.
