BrooklynJay Lyr Req: Charlie the Midnight Marauder (17) RE: Lyr Req: Charlie the Midnight Marauder 31 May 17

For some reason, this song has been invading my head for the last few days.

While it is a bit dated, it could probably be brought up to date... or maybe performed as a period piece. (I would begin by changing the "forty thousand" reference to "half a million" for starters!) Don't think I'd use the spoken intro, though...

One correction: the line is touting suburbia rather than taunting.

I'm also curious as to who actually wrote this song; "Cal Bagby" was actually an alias for Lou Gottlieb of The Limeliters. Who the "Davis" is, I haven't the foggiest.
