Spent yesterday in beautiful Norman, OK, visiting my tax dollars at work....

On the way back, my flight had one of these videos that they play in order to get you to buy their cheap headphones. Naturally, I didn't bite; I have enough headphones lying around, and as far as most of the inflight entertainment on this particular airline (hint: they're based in Atlanta and their logo is a triangle), I'd rather listen to a man playing his armpit. (Ladies and gentlemen, Tommy Ritz and His Musical Pits!) Of course, that left me with nothing to listen to except the music in my head. (I'm with writer_chick on this one...I'm glad I don't have to pay ASCAP or BMI fees for the music in my head.)

So, what was going through my head? Given that they were playing a video about a surfing school, I had Dick Dale's "Misirlou" first, then this beauty that Jan and Dean did...



I bought a pretty cool wagon and we call it a woody
(Surf City, here we come)
You know, it's not very cherry, it's an oldie but a goody
(Surf City, here we come)
Well, it ain't got a backseat or a rear window
But it still gets me where I wanna go
Chorus:
And we're goin' Surf City, 'cause it's two to one
You know we're goin' Surf City, gonna have some fun
Yeah we're goin' Surf City, 'cause it's two to one
You know we're goin' Surf City, gonna have some fun, now
They say they never roll the scoops, because there's always
something goin'
(Surf City, here we come)
You know, they're either out surfin' or they got a party growin'
(Surf City, here we come)
Well it's two swingin' honey for every guy
And all you gotta do is just wink your eye
(chorus)
And if my woody breaks down, I'll get somewhere as a surfer
(Surf City, here we come)
I'll strap my board to my back and hitch a ride in my wet-suit
(Surf City, here we come)
And when I get to Surf City, I'll be shootin' the curl
And checkin' out the parties for surfer girls
(chorus)



Then, if that wasn't annoying enough, this Louis Prima tune popped into my head...


Just a gigolo
everywhere I go
people know the part
I'm playing

Paid for every dance
selling each romance
every night some heart
be traying

There will come a day
youth will pass away
then what will they say
about me

When the end comes I know
they'll say just a gigolo
as life goes on
without me

'Cause I aint got nobody
nobody nobody cares for me
I'm so sad and lonely
sad and lonely sad and lonely
Won't some sweet mama
come and take a chance with me
cause I aint so bad

Get along with me babe,
been singin love songs
All of the time
Even only be, honey only, only be
Bop bozadee bozadee bop zitty bop

I ain't got nobody 'cept love songs in love
Hummala bebhuhla zeebuhla boobuhla
hummala bebhuhla zeebuhla bop

I ain't got nobody, nobody,
nobody cares for me
Nobody , nobody
I'm so sad and lonely,
sad and lonely,
sad and lonely,
Won't some sweet mama come
and take a chance with me
cause I aint so bad

Get along with me babe,
been singin love songs
All of the time
Even only be, honey only, only be


You can hear the song here, performed by Yoda....I'm still laughing....
