The Potency of Cheap Music

Still moistens the eyes as I remember it playing the day we eventually brought our little baby girl home for more than just a day after months in Neonatal Intensive Care...(full lyrics)

And may I recommend these, much better than they sound and I don't even like peanut butter..

Elvis Presley's Grilled Peanut Butter and Banana Sandwich

* 2 slices of white bread
* 2 tablespoons of smooth peanut butter
* 1 small ripe banana mashed
* 2 tablespoons butter

Spread the peanut butter on one slice of bread and the mashed banana on the other. Press the slices gently together. Melt the butter (or to be truly Elvis-like, melt bacon fat!), over low heat in a small frying pan. Place the sandwich in the pan and fry until golden brown on both sides. Eat it with a glass of buttermilk.

Please note: Elvis tended to eat 12-15 sandwiches a sitting!


Have you tried eating that gunge?

My arteries hardened just reading that.

There is nothing cheap about this music, and I had tears in my eyes thinking about you "misreading" the lyrics to suit your particular situation.

I'm guessing this must have been some years ago, so I guess that the young lady in question has by now perhaps turned you into grandparents ?

I might just turn this into a poem - I will email it to you.
