Moustaches!

When I was in my early teens,
we took roadtrips to the beach.
I know EVERY Jimmy Buffett song.
Nothing I am proud of, it is what it is.


so all these dang m0ustaches resurrect nostalgia for me.
In this form:

I wish I had a pencil thin mustache

The "Boston Blackie" kind
A two toned Ricky Ricardo jacket

And an autographed picture of Andy Devine

Oh I remember bein' buck-toothed and skinny
Writin' fan letters to Sky's niece Penny

Oh I wish I had a pencil thin mustache
Then I could solve some mysteries too


Oh, I could be anyone I wanted to be
Maybe suave Errol Flynn or a Sheik of Araby
If I only had a pencil thin mustache
Then I could do some cruisin' too

Yeah, Bryl-cream, a little dab'll do yah.
