Posts Tagged ‘South Pacific’

We got sunlight on the sand
We got moonlight on the sea;
We got mangoes and bananas

We got dem all straight from lab

Hi Tech all in all straight from lab

What ain’t we got?

We ain’t got peace!

We pick and choose color o’ babies
We get movies, live streaming
Music whole day Android
And wanna cry when we cant!

I click what on earth with virus

That get between, what a joke!

What don’t we get?
You know darn well

I see nothin’ like a chance
Nothin’ in the world
There is nothin’ life can give you
That peace cant fix : So gimme peace!

Nothin’ else was built the same
Heaven here and now
As cute as a button thing

Like peace resting on my heart!

Thank Heaven!
Rabbi Benn Weiss was waiting for me at the sidewalk. Cock-eyed Happy Place catered to anyone who had a certain style. The raffish sailors frequented there as well as beggars who paused in between panhandling for a swig. They paid in style of course with the money they cadged from the customers. Anyone with the style, I mean those who had money, got attention. When I reached the Rabbi he had just disposed a beggar who claimed had acted in the production of South Pacific.
“ There is nothing like a dame.” I crooned knowingly. Benn Weiss shrugged his shoulders and suddenly he said in alarm, “ You look as if seen a ghost!” I explained after having downed a couple of shots of whiskey, “ I suddenly remembered Gigi!” My friend looked perplexed.
“ Remember Maurice Chevalier singing, ‘Thank heaven for little girls?’ I was just twelve and was in love with Leslie Caron myself.”
The Rabbi was listening closely. “ Oh Jake you’re a romantic.”
“I went on singing for days the same number till my father kicked me in the seat of my knickers.
“So you mooned and was in love. So what?”
“ If I sang ‘Thank Heaven for little girls’ now like I did then, would not I be thought of being a closet paedophile or something?” I said.
