(To the Tune: Snowbird)
The inspiration for this song came from an actual news item I had read years ago where the Town Council in one of Florida’s popular resort areas attempted to enact legislation discouraging largely overweight people from parading along their streets in their bathing suits. The town would provide bathrobes on the streets for these people to wear. That law never passed, but the moment I saw the article in the paper, I knew I had to write about it.
Ironically, I used the iconic Canadian hit song ‘Snowbird’ sung by Anne Murray, written by Gene MacLellan to depict the story. What a natural fit!Download Lyrics (PDF)
