    Music played a big part in my life.As a little kid I loved "moon river" by Andy Williams,and "somewhere over the rainbow" My mom liked the showtunes and I`ve been told that one day in the grocery store when I was about 5 or 6,I raised a few eyebrows singing a line from guys and dolls..."who the hell do you think he,s tickling pink on saturday night" I still find myself singing that song...the lyrics still fit today....
    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 sad, call it funny.
    But it's better than even money
    That the guy's only doing it for some doll.
    When you see a Joe saving have of his dough
    You can bet there'll be mink in 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 folderol
    Call it hell, call it heaven
    But it's probable twelve to seven
    That the guy's only doing it for some doll.


    When you see a sport and his cash has run short
    Make a bet that he's banking it with some doll.
    When a guy wears tails with the front gleaming white
    Who the hell do you think he's tickling pink on Saturday night?
    When a lazy slob takes a goody steady job,
    And he smells from vitalis and barbasol.
    Call it dumb, call it clever
    Ah, but you can get odds forever
    That the guy's only doing it for some doll
    Some doll, some doll
