Music Monday: Tiny Tim by Lavern Baker (1959)


In the last year, I've grown to love LaVern Baker. She has a big voice and her songs had a wicked sense of humor. Truthful humor. Take, for example, this song with a sexy melody about a man who's a good lover. It's a lot less sexy when you realize it's about a man with a teeny tiny penis. Oops!


I mean, it's downright rude: "you will be surprised / that a man his size / sure knows how to hypnotize." I am clutching my pearls--and cracking up.
