. . .and the Band Played On . . .

SO what is it about when songs just pop out of nowhere and permeate your thoughts... this one arrived today and had me thinking about my Mom playing it and I had to track down what I could on it... and there wasn't much either!!  . . . I was thinking about the upcoming New Year....
Casey would waltz with a strawberry blonde
And the band played on;
He'd glide 'cross the floor with the girl he adored
And the band played on;
But his brain was so loaded it nearly exploded
The poor girl would shake with alarm;
He'd ne'er leave the girl with the strawberry curls
And the band played on.
