THE DEPRESSION OF THE 1930's - THE GOOD OLD DAYS! (addityan)

Back in the depression
American youngsters
Entered dance marathons contest t
To win cash prizes - some danced
For Days & Days till they dropped
Those who out staid their
Welcome on the dance floor
Tap on the the shoulder
Told to leave
Rest cared on danced on
Some never got up again
Benny Goodman's - Sing Sing Sing*
His 8 minuets 40 second verstan
Give's some Idea - emagan dancing
To that on an empty belly!
Last one's left standing won the cash prize!

And talk of the good old days!

*Liston To Benny Goodman Sing Sing Sing On YouTube - Emerge Your Self Into The Music!
