Vince was twice my age
And Frank Sinatra was his rage
Sometimes the stars came there to sing
Marciano liked this town from the boxing ring
Della Reese he played for you
Dinah Washington sang the blues
Connie Francis and almost Darin
Frank Fontaine and Cavalaro
Mom said, "Margie, do you always have to be hanging around
the Italian guys?"
Grandma Mowery thought George was nice
But Mom, "It's no beer joint I did protest,
The stars go there, Mom, that means it's the best."
