Chef Black goes down to the Hot House to choose the freshest of dancing veggies for some Hot House Contras. In the spirit of Steve Goodman:
There was peas and greens and cabbage and beans,
It was the biggest crowd you ever did see.
And when old man cucumber struck up that number,
Well, you should have heard them vegetables scream.
Oh, the little turnip top was doin' the backwards flop,
The cabbage shook the shimmy and she could not stop.
The little red beet shook its feet,
The watermelon died of the cockeyed heat.
The little tomato, agitator,
Shook the shimmy with the sweet potato,
And old man garlic dropped dead of the colic.
Down at the Swingin’ Tern this evening,
Down at Swingin’ Tern dance.
