Anything happen while I was gone?
I asked my dear Cathie today
Was sitting there in my big easy chair
When off to dreamland I strayed
Met some very interesting people
Marilyn, Elvis and Liz Taylor
John Wayne, Uncle Miltie, and Deano
Even Frankie boy as a sailor
These guys were the 'perfect' antidote
For anything that happens to ail you
They sang, they acted, they made us laugh
Happiness came shining through
There aren't very many like that today
I miss 'em all a whole bunch
Marilyn and I were about to make love
When Cathie woke me up for lunch!
