Subject: RE: Lyr Add: I'll Take Vanilla (w/tune)
Jim Dixon -- very belated thanks for that link to Eddie Cantor singing the song.

Back when I started this thread, I didn't have broadband, so I couldn't listen to it. But I listened to it just now. It's odd hearing it with a slightly different melody than I remember... and in a voice that isn't my uncle's.

The point that Lou and Michael made, about how "I'll take vanilla" eventually came to mean a denunciation of nonsense adds a wry tone when that's the answer to "Will you honor and obey?" doesn't it?
