You’re So Vain, You Probably Think This Song Is About You – Vol 4

It is time for another episode of You’re So Vain! Weeeee!! Today we have a lovely tune from The Mills Brothers called “Paper Doll”

I guess I had a million dolls or more

I guess I’ve played the doll game o’er and o’er

I just quarreled with Sue, that’s why I’m blue

She’s gone away and left me just like all dolls do

If you are unfamiliar with this group than you are missing out. Go get a greatest hits collection IMMEDIATELY, don’t make me smack you.

This video made ME want a paper doll of my own, mostly because I could always use more friends and as an extremely short person I would find it amusing to be a GIANT and supreme being over my paper doll minions. (also go watch Time Bandits now that I think about it – cause SUPREME BEING). I found some amazing paper doll resources online to get your own to:

You’re So Vain, You Probably Think This Song Is About You – Vol 3

This week’s episode is brought to you by the great Bob Wills

Sounds like me and this gentleman here and I are going for a walk, and a talk. As long as snacks are involved I can get behind that.

You always know a Bob Wills song by this running commentary he sings/talks in his songs, Ahhhh Hawwwwww.

Treat yourself to some Western Swing with some of my other Bob Wills favorites:
