Some song lyrics misheard over the cafe hubbub…

But first…
Dulltown, UK: Today’s American hero is Chuck Berry 1926 – 2017.
Come on, let’s listen to the words of Brown-Eyed Handsome Man.
‘Arrested on charges of unemployment he was sitting in the witness stand…’ Of course for ‘brown eyed handsome man’ you should really be hearing ‘brown-skinned handsome man’, but then, this was 1956!…

‘The year of the get-so-sweet girl…’
‘I in deeper sand, important…’
‘I deceive a kind E, weep deep.’
‘Turn your omni-seed, it is precious to me baby.’
‘I tell you everything Scotch.’
‘Til the day I die-e-eye-e-eye-e-eye…’
‘The very couch feels low, oh, oh, oh…’
‘All the words I na-na blossom…’
‘An inch injury, and creeping think-think.’
‘Celebrate my tunnel, basement phone talking, yeah.’
‘A biscuit real, and now a Mormon nice…’
‘Lord speak up, oh hey, oh hey, oh hey…’
‘A screw is on me all night long girl.’
‘Ha ha ha ha, a long long fool.’
‘Walking gnome, walking gnome…’
‘Sunshine and spume, straight-water boogie now!’
‘Crawl right to the Wednesday window…’
‘Don’t give up girl – I want wooden days!’
‘Dip a thing – hello, my pygmy britches…’
‘For a future thousand wheels!… Take ’em one sure!’
‘Where am I going, beautiful eye?’
‘Pretto biffam, the morning fall knee?’
‘Don’t feel the heat, adjust my pump…’
