Funny and Nutty Songs From YesterYear

The Way I See it

A couple of weeks ago, we celebrated St. Patrick's Day. Kind of a crazy time of the year, I guess.....and speaking of crazy, do you remember "The Unicorn Song" by the Irish Rovers? I listened to it a couple of times on You-tube and even orchestrated my voice into a fine Irish tone while blaring out why we don't see a Unicorn this very day!! Anyway, this got me to thinking about all the other crazy, nutty and goofy songs from "way back when." Here were a few of my favorites....

Mister Jack. ("I thank you very much and you've been very kind...)

The Streak. ("Don't look Ethel but it was too late...)
