Welcome back to this week's Sunday Serenade, ol' pals o mine! I'm thinkin' it's bout' time we jump into the first "Duetin' with Dino" of the new year!
Now we ALL know that there's NUTHIN' better that a cool cool tune crooned SOLO by our cool cool croonin' pal!
That bein' said...if Dean must share the microphone...can't thinks of many pallies out there that I enjoy more... singin' along with Dino, as his bestest pal...Frankie Blue Eyes!
"Guys & Dolls" is nother' one of those tunes that I must admit...I didn't really pay much attention to UNTIL I grabbed myself a copy of the "Collected Cool" box set last year. Man o man pals...can I tell youse that now I CAN'T NUFF' OF IT!!! What a cool, swingin' jam! You can just feel the FUN oozin' outta this one!
If you don't catch yourself tappin' along to this little number...I'm guessin' your on life support!!! Ha ha ha! Let's hope not pallies! Feel free to sing along with the boys and grab yourself some of the fun! Enjoy!
Look, what's playing at the Roxy?
I'll tell you what's playing in the Roxy.
A picture about a Minnesota man so in love with a Mississippi girl,
That he sacrifices everything and moves all the way to Malacksy.
That's what's playing at the Roxy.
What's in the daily news? I'll tell what's in the daily news.
Story about a guy who bought his wife a small ruby,
With what otherwise would have been his union dues.
That's what's on the daily news.
What's happening all over? I'll tell you what is happening all over.
Guys sitting home before the television set who used to be something of a rover.
That is what's happening all over.
What is the thing that has licked 'em?
And it looks like I am just another victim.
Yes sir, when you see a guy reach for stars in the sky,
You can bet that he's doing it for some doll
When you spot a john waiting out in the rain,
Chances are he's insane, as only a john can be for a jane.
When you meet a gent paying all kinds of rent
For a flat that could flatten the Taj Mahal,
Call it bad, call it funny, but it's better than even money,
That's the guy that's only doing it for some doll.
When you see a Joe, saving half of his dough,
You can bet they'll be minting it for some doll,
When a bum buys wine like a bum can't afford,
It's a cinch that the bum is under the thumb of some little broad
When you meet a mug lately out of the jug,
And he's still lifting platinum for the roll,
Call its hell, call it heaven, it's a probable twelve to seven
That's a guy that's only doing it for some doll.
