When I was first introduced to Ronnie Dawson (1939-2003), the Blond Bomber, the Man Who Wouldabin Elvis, if Elvis just hadn't been, I was awed. And then I was shocked by what was politically correct in 1955.
I think the best lyrics are from "Congratulations to Me"
...for I'm a lucky man
my baby she loves me
got her ring upon her hand
when it comes to lovin'
baby knows what to do---
and she's a sassy lassy
But man she can COOK TOO--OOO
Lyrics from "I make the love" sounds like Ronnie read his fair share of issues of Cad Magazine.
At least "I Make the Love" was honest.
What really won me over to Ronnie Dawson though, other than Ghost Riders in the Sky, and Rockin Bones, and Everybody Clap Your Hands (which every bar band should learn TODAY) was Action Packed. Of course, coming from comics, I am going to love pretty much any song with the words "action packed" in the title or lyrics.
This song made my hips move almost like Sheree there. Plus it embodies my entire philosophy of life. "no squares better tag along..."
