GUEST,Pete Peterson happy? Dec 26 (Battle of Trenton) (14) RE: happy? Dec 26 (Battle of Trenton) 27 Dec 05


Anybody who has not heard him do it should hear Mike Agranoff recite his composition "The Battle of Trenton" in Joisey dialect, with attitudeand wonderful anachronisms.   It starts

"So, ya think that ya knows about history?
Ya liked when ya took it in school?
Dose bookworms, dey don't know nutting!
If you think they do, you's a fool!

"I'll tell you how it all happened
When me and George Washington saw
How to cross the Delaware River
And turn the tide of da war"

(I'd post the whole thing, but don't feel good about posting something I know Mike wrote)
