Why I can’t stand “Meet Me in St Louis” starring Judy Garland

 

Lemonade ladies promenade

With parasols and girdles staid

Every suitor, searched assayed

The utmost caution is conveyed

 

And who will we have for dinner

Spare us the besotted sinner

Grant us a young wiz and winner

A thing that shines when lights grow dimmer

 

We’ll have a big and heavy roast

Made by a maid from the African coast

And we’ll brag and lie and surely boast

Ensnaring a groom is uppermost

 

And when we’re tired we’ll recline

And say McKinley’s quite divine

Dream of being a concubine

While all we do is carp and whine
