For dads...

In honor of Father's Day, I thought I'd write a little something about this classic song by Harry Belafonte, who is joined here with the late Nat King Cole.  The first time I heard "Mama Look A Boo Boo", I was a college student and my friend Donna sang it to me.  It was funny enough to hear her sing it.

Years later, when Donna and I hooked up on Facebook, she posted a link to that song on my wall and I thought it was hilarious.  Listening to the lyrics, I think it's very appropriate.

And so is this classic clip from Bill Cosby's classic film, Himself.

A little fatherly advice from Jimmy Soul...  Happy Father's Day, everybody.


  1. I remember watching Bill Cosby on HBO all the time when I was about ten years old. I probably have that whole film memorized.
