Thursday Theme Song, good golly...


Good golly, Miss Collie, you sure like to bark,
Good golly, Miss Collie, you sure like to bark,
When you’re barkin’ and a-howlin’
You can’t hear your owner call.
From the early, early mornin’
  ’til the early, early night,
You can hear Miss Collie barkin’
  like to give me a fright.
Good golly, Miss Collie, you sure like to bark,
When you’re barkin’ and a-yowlin’
You can’t hear your owner call.

This You Tube clip features Little Richard’s original 1956 recording of his greatest hit, Good Golly, Miss Molly.

In my opinion, this version typifies 1950s rock’n’roll in a way few others can.
However, the song has also been performed by Jerry Lee Lewis, Creedence Clearwater Revival, the Swinging Blue Jeans, the Doo Wop group 'The Valiants', and others, including this performance by Little Richard himself along with Tom Jones, seen here on YouTube:
I’d like to thank my good friends Deb and Randy Stuber for the use of these wonderful photos of their girls: their two lovely show Collies, renowned for their beauty and not  for barking as my parody implies. No dogs were harmed in the making of this blog post.

They are such friendly dogs, I don't participate in this meme because I always listen to the music and don't pay attention to the words or the title or the singer !
