Gee this song takes me way way back!  Isn't it funny how you can forget
what happened yesterday but yet you can remember things from the
dim dark past?  Or aren't you old enough to appreciate that  statement
yet?  If not then you won't remember this song either, but if you do
remember  it then I'm sure you will know what I am  talking about.

I wonder if Tom Dooley is the bloke we referred to when we said
"holy dooley" ..... you remember when people used to say that instead
of the 'F' word don't you. Come to think about it, I hear lots more F's
than holy dooleys these days..... even on the TV.  Things have changed
a lot since Graham Kennedy got fired from his TV show for saying the
F word, now they not only say it on TV, they also DO IT, right in front
of your eyes - Holy Dooley, things have changed alright!

Hope you enjoy this simple little dance to this classic old song.
See you on the floor sometime.....  Jan
