Your mama don't dance and your daddy don't rock 'n' roll

"Your daddy's rich and your mama's good looking,
so hush little baby don't you cry."

The amount of grief I'm getting for being illiterate is astounding. Already looked up Gershwin, Cole Porter too (just saw a production of his "50 Million Frenchmen" this weekend). I like musicals, really, just never heard anyone but my friend Jake quote what I now know is, "Summertime." ...until I started blogging. Live and learn.

Special thanks to Robert Earnest who sent me an mp3 of Lena Horne's version, which now occupies an honored spot in my iTunes library... don't get on his case, it's a Fair Use as "educational material."

Now... ask me anything about rock 'n' roll!
