Billy the Bus Lyr Req: Loose Shoes (parody of Cab Calloway) (23) RE: Lyr Req: Bawdy Cab Calloway Song 11 Jul 04

Hoo John,

You can't have heard grubby words like that from a Kiwi fisherman - they are all clean living. You heard it from Gerald Ford's 1976 US Presdential campaign,,, vis...

Earl Butz, the Ford administration's agriculture secretary, lasted a mere three days during the 1976 presidential election, killed by his October remark that all "coloreds want is a tight pussy, loose shoes and a warm place to shit." Found at...... Here's another link to Gerald Ford and the quote. Whoops, it seems singer Pat Boone was in on the conversation....

Guess Karl got kicked in the Butz

Adding "calloway" to my search didn't help any.. Mind you, that doesn't prove Cab wasn't involved in the original quote. A Kiwi fisherman wouldn'i tell lies - unless they could add to the yarn...;)

Cheers - Sam (NZ)
