~*Day 18 of 365*~
"Five Foot Two, Eyes Of Blue"

This is the front cover of a Life magazine featuring "flappers"... Great imagery! 
...I was taught this song last week by a wonderful gentleman downtown. 
His mother played the ukulele and taught him this song when he was young. 
It was the 2nd song he ever learned...and I am honored that he shared it with me. :) 
He even taught me some different lyrics than the original.
Instead of:
 "Turned up nose, turned down hose, never had no other beaus.."
I sing:
"Turned up nose, turned down hose, FLAPPER, YES SIR, ONE OF THOSE"
Those are the lyrics his momma taught him way back when.
Makes it different.
 Makes the whole experience more personal. What a neat tune!
