STRIKE UP THE BAND
by GEORGE CAMPOS
(ONTARIO, CA. - USA)
Jazz and Big Bands were my thing
Music in the days of Swing
Jiiterbugging the dance of the day
We'd swing and sway with Sammy Kaye.
Rock and Roll my son favored
and he was really dedicated
Tossed his trombone in the corner
Took up 6 string guitar.
I'd spin my wax and he'd run
My thing wasn't for my son
Musically we weren't compatible
Virtually, like Cain and Abel!!
Someday we'll meet in heaven
Where angels play harp and organ
My son will end his rock & rolling
and I'll be finished swinging...
