The Waltz of the Wallflowers (a dysfunctional duet) by Small Potatoes

 

 

 

Small Potatoes with Jacquie Manning and Richard Prezioso from the Chicago area.

 

A happy ending?

Do any of you recall those dances in the gym, perhaps in the 1950′s? There would be streamers, a band (or records), a punch bowl and cookies. The boys would be on one side, and the girls on the other. Little groups clumped together, afraid to make the first move. Some kids were frozen in place as if their shoes were nailed to the floor. They would just stand there and watch. What were they thinking?

This folk duo, Small Potatoes, have written a wonderful song about wallflowers. When was the last time you heard that word: wallflower? And when was the last time you danced a waltz? Listen carefully:          Paul
