Sunday Song Lyric:
The notorious Bettie Page died on Thursday. The 1950s pin-up icon inspired movies and congressional hearings, and a little gem of a song by BR5-49. Here's the first verse:
You came to New York City back in Jack and Neal's day
All the lights of old Times Square they flickered on the Great White Way
Straight from Tennessee and in the rarest beauty form
You walked before the Klaw and caused a nationwide storm
Oh, after he remembered you from 1952
All the boys down at the pool hall had a calendar or two
Forty odd years later you'll still up and going strong
But I can't help wondering just where it is you've gone
Here's a live performance.
