Not far from the tree

I just noticed that Mookie has the lyrics to a toe-tapping minor classic on her sidebar. From the Chairmen of the Board:

Give Me Just A Little More Time

Give me just a little more time
And our love will surely grow
Give me just a little more time
And our love will surely grow

Life's too short to make a mistake
Let's think of each other and hesitate
Young and impatient we may be
There's no need to act foolishly
If we part our hearts won't forget it
Years from now we'll surely regret it


You're young and you're in a hurry
You're eager for love but don't you worry
We both want the sweetness in life
But these things don't come overnight
Don't give up cos love's been slow
Boy, we're gonna succeed with another blow

Give me just a little more time
And our love will surely grow
Baby please baby
Baby please baby

Love is that mountain we must climb
Let's climb it together your hand in mine
We haven't known each other too long
But the feeling I have is oh so strong
I know we can make it there's no doubt
We owe it to ourselves to find it out


Give me just a little more time
And our love will surely grow
Baby, please baby
Baby, please baby

[Repeat And Fade]

It runs in the family.

I sing that one quite often at karaoke. It's a fun song.

I've played a few gigs with the chairmen - same billing not in his band. Though a few friends of mine have worked for Gen. Johnson. He amazes me simply because he cusses the hell out of his audience & they love it. Perhaps not a big deal now but he's always done that & we're talking about a black man cussing out white people in the south. (nothing too harshly intended - just "put your m-f'ing hands int he air" & such).

They're still gigging. East Coast entertainment was booking them (along with Muarice Williams & the Zodiacs & a few other 50's/do-wop/beach groups) & they had a pretty decent calander last I heard.

I wonder if Mookie is hip to 39-21-40 shape? lol & you might wanna keep an eye on her - beach music leads to shagging :D

BTW - if you're ever in the Carolinas & amongst people over 40 don't call that one a "minor classic" - they might get a might preturbed.

Publicola, you amaze me with your music knowledge. I understand the reasons for staying anonymous and for the almost exclusive 2A postings, but damn, I can just imagine the stories you could tell...
