Lavern Baker

Oh with a soul of fire
baby you’ll be crying,
like a heavenly choir
Tra la la, Jim Dandy,
oh how long will it be?
I can’t love you enough.
You, me and Tweedle Dee
together in New York,
just a lucky old son
happiness forever,
the big apple for fun
here where you’re no one’s fool.
We’ll dance to Ting-a-ling
do the bop all night long,
we’ll be doing you’re thing
‘Play it fair, Harbour lights’
hit after hit then more
shaking till morning bites.
Boy love that dancing floor
every night this dream
of you Lavern and me,
crazy man crazy theme
my very own club glee
every night this dream.

well, gosh, Harry, what brought this one on? It's so unique!! It even reminds me of that old tv show of Lavern and Shirley! WAs Lavern someone you once knew or just a name to use in this fun poem? Thanks for reading my older stuff again. Luv, Andrea

Ah, you fooled me, Harry. I didn't know this was a dream until I got to your last line. The poem reminded me of the many plays I've seen on broadway an the magnificent blend of cultures in New York. Awesome write that provoked wonderful memories! Love, Carolyn
