Weekend Assignment #65...Summer song dedication......I dedicate this to all the young men who on a summer nights such as these take steps from innocence to adolesence...................................
When I was 15, the borders or moarality were certainly narrower than they are today. A James Bond Movie was consudered to be bordering "soft porn" . T.V. was all about sit coms, and detectives.....issues of sex and homosexuality, were never raised. Condoms could only be purchased from the pharmacist, and femine products ....not advertised!
Despite sexuality not being in full view in the media, the imagination of young men always had a large screen TV playing in the screens of their minds!
It was on a summer afternoon, my friend Ron and I were walking through a park, harmonizing our favorite song, and smiling at the lovely young girls as they passed by. "Wooly Bully" by Sam the Sham and the Pharoahs, great tune, mysterious lyrics, a great attention getter when sung with its throbbing gusto.
"Matty told Hatty, about this thing she saw" we were singing, when suddenly the sight of something stopped us in our tracks.
"Is it what I think it is?" I asked
"yes" smiled Ron..."it sure is"
"I can't believe it!" I said in complete astonishment. "I mean, I can't believe something like that would happen here".
"Well Marc, you had better believe it...and believe me, they had one fine time!"
"Man", I sighed, "I wonder when I am going to be so lucky"
"One day" Ron said, "One day we all be this lucky!"
We both mused at the lifeless condom laying on the ground, which had indicated a finer moment had taken place where we were standing. I looked up.."Hey Ron, look whose coming...The Moss twins!...... They don't have much of a chest, but they are cute"....."Ok...On three....Uno, Dos, tres.....Matty told Hatty, that's the thing to do, get you someone really, to pull the wool with you....wooly bully, wooly bully......"
