"A White Sport Coat (and A Pink Carnation)" (MP3)
Misheard Lyrics:
One shoe told me long ago
To the brownwood tree you'd go
Now you've changed your mind, it seems
Someone else, withhold my dreams
Hawaii sport coat and a pink carnation
And it's a blue, blue moon.

Once you told me long ago
To the prom with me you'd go
Now you've changed your mind, it seems
Someone else will hold my dreams
A white sport coat and a pink carnation
I'm in a blue, blue mood.
