Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Bread and Gravy
These little fragments that people post are fascinating. You know there's a long history behind the lyrics that begin with "I never start work until Monday," but where did it come from?
I never cease to appreciate people who come in and post these fragments they remember. Sometimes, we find the rest of the lyrics that go with the fragment; but many times, we do no. And then years later, somebody like Jim Dixon or Q will come up with the entire song.
That's what makes this quest so interesting.
