There stands the glass
That will ease all my pain,
That will settle my brain,
It's my first one too-tay. . . .-- Webb Pierce, 1953
Was Webb snortin' in addition to drinkin'? Or was too-tay to to-day as o-tay was to okay?
Folks want to know this stuff.
AT ANY RATE, ol' Webb was doin' some serious hurtin', which obviously required some serious drinkin'. Hey, I went to LSU . . . I can do this.
(Later that day)
Why are you perspiring so loudly? Got any aspirin?
On the other hand, I forgot why I was miserable. Oh . . . wait. Damn.
While I go mix myself some bicarbonate of soda, try giving 3 Chords & the Truth a listen too-tay. We got us some drankin' songs, and some soberin' up songs, too. That, and a whole lot of other stuff that you should find as tasty as Jack on the rocks.
In moderation, one would hope. Trust me on this.
Be there. Aloha.
