Black Tie Friday

I caught part of the Doors movie last evening. Not a great flick, no, but the acting is amazing. Val Kilmer does a very convincing Jim Morrison and supposedly sang the songs himself.

So, in the spirit of a light Friday and in anticipation of tonight’s gala dinner dance (Mrs. E.’s school turns 100), I thought that I’d write a little ditty based on one of The Doors’ first hits. In my movie, the lead singer would be played by Mr. Bryan Ferry.

Yes, I’m a black tie man

I’m a black tie man

Most men don’t know

what the women understand

 

Excuse me, but while you’re watching TV

I’m out dancing with a girl who’s a dream

Because I’m a black tie man

Most men don’t know

what the women understand

 

Join me for dinner?

We’ll start with bellinis

Topped with caviar, more

than any man’s ever seen, yes, yes

 

I’m a black tie man

Most men don’t know

But the women understand

 

I’m a black tie man

I’m a black tie man

Hello darling, I’m your black tie man

Most men don’t know

but the women understand.
