19 Mar 2017 – Song: Suzie B Goode
(in homage to Chuck Berry)

Has you ain’t got no mama?
Does she know where you been?
– ‘Cuz seventeen’s just too damned young
to be a jukebox queen.

Suzie B Goode,
you better close up shop!
You better find them shoes,
you better find your top!
Suzie B Goode,
you say real life’s a bore –
but it beats workin’ strays
down on the barroom floor.

Not too good at algebra,
phonetics wasn’t cool,
but once you got biology
the night became your school.

Suzie B Goode,
you better close up shop!
You better find them shoes,
you better find your top!
Suzie B Goode,
you say real life’s a bore –
but it beats workin’ strays
down on the barroom floor.

Best lose that porkchop necklace!
Best shoo them dogs away!
Them whiskey nights and neon lights
will put you in your grave.

Suzie B Goode,
you better close up shop!
You better find them shoes,
you better find your top!
Suzie B Goode,
you say real life’s a bore –
but it beats workin’ strays
down on the barroom floor.
