TheUnitedEstates: Missed my favorite verse!
Went to the doctor, to get a shot
Just dropped my trousers, without a thought!
saw that needle, in that mirrored wall.
I was out that door, and down that hall!
Running bare through the hallway- nurses throwing their gowns on me!
Running bare through the hallway. Running bear- that's what they call me
Marian Howard: I heard this at one of my fathers friends home... I was hooked... he gave me the record for singing it to him... Love you bill... RIP... and thank you so much for a great memory of you and Dad...
Becky Carter: My Dad and his band played on his show back in the late 60s and early 70s. I even appeared on one of his shows for a brief moment. My Dad's band was the HILLTOPPERS. My dad is Gordon Hudgins.
