“Ohhhhh, Water, I don’t need no lemonade…”
Wow. Ernie K-Doe’s Here Come The Girls is my new imaginary sassy strip song. I imagine formation stripping would make it really work, or perhaps a dance number but always with the multiple girls.
His voice is amazing and the military march throughout adds in my mind an air of threat- Oh no, the girls are coming! Run for your lives! Save your virginity! A very fine record. So fine in fact that I had an inexplicable urge to write out the lyrics.

The perfect follow up would be I Hear Voices by Screamin’ Jay Hawkins. Just to freak the punters out.
