…. with Valentine’s Day just around the corner and a mischievous Cupid lurking behind every bush, I suppose that I should share a line that I just heard come across the car radio as I was driving….. check this out…..

“If you were a horsefly
And I were an old gray mare
I would let you bite me
And never twitch a hair.”

.. good God, that is marvelous… I mean, can’t you just imagine the look of abject love that would immediately radiate across the face of your betrothed if you were to gaze deeply into her eyes and slip those lyrics on her?......

… and the refrain in the chorus?.... “because that’s how much I love you.” ….. 1946, people…. Eddie Arnold….

… our local radio station has aired a “Sunday Morning Memory Music” segment since forever and a day…. and today’s was a masterpiece of lovestruck creativity, people..… mercy.... “if you were a horsefly”, indeed…. You really can’t make this shit up….

If you were a cockroach
And I a Hershey bar
I would let you bite me
And never twitch a h'ar.

Yeah, they don't write 'em like they used to, do they?
