I tried what I grew up on. "Did you say Mergatroy? ( she didnt,I did) Slooowly I step"...etc. Then the chase was on. Killed as a joke even to this day for the newest generation.
I also played Mungo Jerry on YouTube. A new Mungo Jerry fan in 2016 for the 1970 song.
Getting older is being your parents. Soon,I'm dropping Fibber McGee's closet on her. Or a Heavens to Betsy...or You stink so? Winners,all!
