Song of the Week
An oldie but goodie from my 1970's childhood: Porcupine Pie by Neil Diamond. Can't say the associated video does much for me.
Traveling to Philly several years ago, I happened to see Neil Diamond on some good morning show. Somehow over the past 25 years the man got old. Yikes!
Some of the lyrics surprised me as they differ from what I sang as a kid. I always thought you had to "eat it with love so you'll hands'll turn green."
Porcupine Pie, Porcupine Pie, Porcupine Pie
Vanilla Soup, a double scoop please.... No
Maybe I won't, maybe I will, maybe I'll have
the tutti fruit, with fruity blue cheese
Ah but Porcupine Pie, Porcupine Pie, Porcupine Pie
don't let it get on your jeans
And though it sounds a little strange but
you gotta eat it with gloves or your hands will turn green
Ah but porcupine pie, porcupine pie, porcupine pie
weaves its way through my dreams
I do believe I'm gonna try some and
leave enough room for dessert, the chicken ripple ice cream.
(and yet again, here's the whine about formatting in blogger. Pictures NEVER show up the way in the final post as they do in my preview window. Sigh.)
