Thoroughly Poetic hursday #76


Angel Sammy and Teddy find such inspiring photos for us

This is our picture prompt 

This photo inspired the songwriter that is not in me
If you want to sing-a-long, sing to the tune of  Barry Manilow's 

Her name was Judy, she was a car hop.
She was a cutie, perfectly flipped hair and a smile from ear to ear
She would bring burgers, fries and shakes to the car
She wanted to be a Cha-Cha star, not serve cars
Judy love Tony he flipped burgers but wanted to fix cars
Across the crowded burger joint, he hollered to Judy order up
Their hours were long, their love strong,
They were young and they had each other
They worked at the hottest spot north of Savannah.
Who could ask for more!!

Barry's words:
Her name was Lola, she was a showgirl
With yellow feathers in her hair and a dress cut down to there
She would merengue and do the cha-cha
And while she tried to be a star
Tony always tended bar
Across the crowded floor, they worked from eight til four
They were young and they had each other 
The Coppa was the hottest spot north of Havana
Who could ask for more?
