Down in the Dumps on this thing with the Humps
Blog Guy, I used to love Gene Autry, the Singing Cowboy. Strumming his guitar as he rode along. They don’t make ’em like that anymore.
Well, there is this woman, Deanna Bogart. She plays saxophone, not guitar, okay, and she rides a camel, not a horse. She just performed in Egypt.
Egypt? Does she sing Autry’s classic, “Back in the Saddle Again?
I’m guessing hers would be something like “Back on the Camel Again.” The lyrics would probably be like:
I’m back on the camel, again,
Back where a friend is a friend,
Oh, the food here often stinks,
And they’ve got this Giant Sphinx,
I’m back on the camel, again…
Blog Guy, I think you’re making up all this crap!
Well, Deanna really did perform in Egypt.
Hold on a minute, Blog Guy. Gene Autry didn’t just sing, he used a gun and shot bad guys. If this sax player is working over in the Middle East, where will the shooting come from?
I’ll give you a few minutes to figure that out, pardner.
