Fit Fits & Whiskey...
When I was a kid, my dad used to sing to me in the bathtub. So naturally, I’ve adopted this practice with my son. I remember cassette tapes of my pops and I belting out Cigarettes & Whiskey & Wild Wild Women (probably not the most age-appropriate song, but a nostalgic memory nonetheless). If muppets can sing it, it must be ok… right?
Unfortunately, I don’t have the tapes to prove this, but I do remember that I wasn’t able to properly enunciate the word “cigarettes” so I was just yelling, “FIT FITS and whiskey and wild wild women.” With those lyrics engrained in my head my entire life, I can honestly say that I’ve only indulged in whiskey from time to time and left the other two alone. Still sane… must be the combo that drives you off your rocker.
With that said, today’s music doesn’t necessarily teach the life lessons of our parents’ era. My only hope is that one day my son will be able to pop in this BATH TIME MIX (once he’s old enough for the explicit lyrics) and reflect on the sage musings of his father told through two Technics 1200s.
