People learn not to tell you no. E.g., the motorcyclist who does, in fact, bully.

I had a novelty hits double-album when I was a sprog. Along with hotrod Lincoln and Beep Beep, I always loved "seven little girls". Fred was a lucky guy. Poor other guy. But really, "seven"?!

This is one of those songs I heard people talk about and sing or hum little bits of when I was a kid without ever hearing the song itself. I should have known it was on YouTube somewhere, but then I much prefer to be introduced to it this way.

IIRC this song was used on a variety of carnival rides -- the type which start slow and end up at dizzying speeds designed to make most riders scream or puke .

Is that Morton Downey, Jr. on the right, in the still photo at the beginning? (Sure, why not, he got erroneous credit for "Wipeout"...)

This song has popped into my head every few months since I was about 10 years old and heard for the first time. I've never taken the time to look it up though. Now I may have to buy the mp3 and put it in my music library.

Such a great word. We were a little obsessed with it in high school.
