Everybody lost their style after Whitney and Mariah. There's no depth. No taste. It's like cooking collard greens and not putting any meat in them - James Brown, upon turning 70, who was getting ready to take his jumpsuits and high heels on the road again during the summer of 2003. The hardest working man in showbiz has a lot to say about music today, and he doesn't sugarcoat it

The tune is real similar to Budded Roses which was fairly popular in the 1920s and 1930s.

Hi all,
For the benefit of those who are interested in such things, here is how the phrasing works out for "Little Mamie" by the Kentucky Ramblers.  The phrasing in the instrumental intro is slightly different from that of the verses.  The intro is phrased like so, with the first measure in each of the first three lines in 3/2 (boom-chang, boom-chang, boom-chang) followed by two measures in 2/2 (boom-chang, boom-chang).  In the last line of the intro, all four measures are in 2/2.

In the sung verses, the last line is phrased like the three other lines, with an opening measure in 3/2 and two measures in cut time, 2/2.  So it is that the song begins each line with a measure in 3, followed by two measures in 2.  As Mel Allen used to say, "How about that!"
All best,
Johnm

Thanks John.  I probably couldn't sing and play that if I tried.
