The best dancers have holes


The best dancers have holes in their pockets.
The best singers have the blues.

And when the milk runs dry and babies cry,
My soul is in the noose. My soul is in the noose.

Conrad, she would have made an entire sultry afternoon of these four lines. Thanks for your thoughtful association.

I appreciate it, Anthony. Thank you.

Thanks very much, Marit. Quite well too, I would guess.

Hello, Monika. Or maybe Hank Williams, Sr.
