    Green Tomatoes from The Earlybird Stringband

    Many thanks to those who wished me well this week. I'm still using the cane to get around, but my back is much better than it was a few days ago.

    I Love Tomatoes by Connie Kaldor

    This one came from Connie's kids' album, A Duck In New York City. Maggie and I have been fans of Connie's for over 3 decades. I still think of her as being a prairie girl, though she now lives in Montreal.

    you know when a really stupid rhyme pops into your head?

    and you can't leave it alone?

    here is "pizzicato tomato"

    lynda

    i'm interested in one thing, and one thing only. and that's the eighties.

    OK, another one stolen before work.

    This is traditional, probably, but whenever I think of it I think of Fivepenny Piece.

    Imagine me as a small boy, being driven around (in whatever car my dad owned that week) listening to this, probably on an 8-track! My mum used to think the words to this were hilarious.

    I had no idea how much innuendo room there was until I looked up the lyrics just now. I might have to do a better version of this later. It reminds me of my mum.

    Well, I requested this one when I thought I was gonna be laid up for the week, but I'm feeling much better now and since no one took me up on it, here's one from the late, great Guy Clark, one of my favourite singer/songwriters, Homegrown Tomatoes.

    Hi Bob! I couldn't let the tomato season pass without doing this song. It's been such a fun week. Thanks so much. This was written by the Gershwins for the movie Shall We Dance, in 1937, where Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers skated around exchanging phonetic preferences.
