Wooly Bully Uncovered


I personally don’t know anyone who can recite the entire lyrics to “Wooly Bully” by Sam the Sham and the Pharaohs. I’ve listened to the recording easily a thousand times over the past 47 years. This week on a long car drive, I played it repeatedly in a final effort to get it right. I still couldn’t make out a few words, so I went online for the truth today and was stunned by this: “Let’s not be L-seven, come and learn to dance.”

Okay, thousands, if not millions out there know the meaning of “L-seven.” I don’t. I guess that means I’m square.

My labels: grandfather, father, veteran, writer, poet, photographer and dreamer in pursuit of the meaning of life. Getting close, although I'm running out of time--probably why I'm so close.
