Music Man Post II.

I blame my parents for being gay. After all, they're the ones who used to tape 1950s/60s Musicals that used to come on Public Television every Saturday night, and then park me in front of the television for hours on end watching The Music Man and Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music and Annie, and the rest of the family-friendly garbage that used to come on TV. And I would watch them over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over, and over again.

I grew up thinking names like "Hermione Gingold" and "Glynis Johns" were normal.

On the plus side, I have the ability to really appreciate Family Guy. I mean, like I've said in the past, any cartoon that can spontaneously break into: Shipoopi, deserves our perverse respect. I mean... it's better when Buddy Hackett sings it, but Peter Griffin is pretty good too.

Well, a woman who'll kiss on the very first date
Is usually a hussy
And a woman who'll kiss on the second time out
Is anything but fussy
But a woman who'll wait till the third time around
Head in the clouds, feet on the ground
She's the girl he's glad he's found
She's his Shipoopi

Shipoopi! Shipoopi, Shipoopi
The girl who's hard to get!
Shipoopi. Shipoopi, Shipoopi
But you can win her yet.

Walk her once just to raise the curtain
Then you walk around twice and make for certain
Once more in the flower garden
She will never get sore if you beg her pardon

Do re me fa so la si
Do si la sol fa mi re do

Squeeze her once, when she isn't lookin'
If you get a squeeze back that's fancy cookin'
Once more for a pepper-upper
She will never get sore on her way to supper

Do re me fa sol la si
Do si do

Now little ol' Sal was a no-gal
As anyone could see
Lookit her now, she's a go-gal
Who only goes for me

Squeeze her once when she isn't lookin'
If you get a squeeze back, that's fancy cookin'
Once more for a pepper-upper
She will never get sore on her way to supper

Do re me fa sol la si
Do si do

Shipoopi, Shipoopi, Shipoopi
The girl who's hard to get
Shipoopi. Shipoopi, Shipoopi
But you can win her yet
