On the turntable: 'Ain't Nobody Here But Us Chickens' - Louis Jordan Hear Here: www.youtube.com/watch?v=HnyB0a… also later covered by BB King. "We got things to do We got eggs to lay" I sure do like those intellectual songs . . .
BB King's biography tells a tale of a rough life. He worked as an on-the-air radio personality but had to go back to his other job as a cotton picker. After his fame came he may have some better ideas about himself (and he does tell of certain things he has done that would prove your line of thought) but now he's just another old guy like me. In any event I like the Louis Jordan version better too.
