Name That Tune

5 posts in this topic

OK I'm in traffic yesterday in Ocean City, MD. It's like 3 lanes wide. Summertime, everybody's there to have a ball. Pull up to a red light and this PERSON in the truck next to me has a song blaring. Here's a snippet:

"Smokin' cigarettes and watchin' Captain

Kangaroo

Now don't tell me

There's nothin'

To do..."

Please help me uncover the mystery! What is the name of this song? :huh:

That's the original version ... and usually (imho) the original version is the best.

HOWEVER ... Eric Heatherly had his own version of this song ~2000. I first heard it on the radio when I was driving from Jackson TN to Nashville TN....go figure:

Cort | 36.m.IL | 5 Monte Carlos.1 Caprice Classic | pig valve.pacemaker * NoreastrTrekRT=Aug2010 *

"It's hard to slow this swinger down" ... Eric Heatherly ... 'Flowers On The Wall'
