Slang from the '60

by Steven Haninger / January 20, 2006 10:07 AM PST

Related to the ''wierdo'' post in the ducktails / DA discussion I'd mentioned Ed (Kookie) Byrnes and had to look this up. He and Connie Stevens had a song on pop radio that I remembered. The words weren't sung....but maybe '60s ''rap''. Thought I'd share the lyrics and a few slang terms some here may recall.



Edward Byrnes & Connie Stevens -
Kookie, Kookie, lend me your comb

(''C'' for Connie and ''E'' for Ed)

C Kookie, Kookie, lend me your comb
Kookie, Kookie?

E Well now, let's take it from the top and grab some wheels
We'll wail along and talk about some cuckoo deals

C But Kookie, Kookie lend me your comb
Kookie, Kookie

E Now you're on my wavelength and I'm readin' you just fine
Don't cut out of here until we get on cloud nine

C But Kookie, Kookie?

E I've got smog in my noggin
Ever since you made the scene

C You're the utmost!

E If you ever tuned me out
Dad, I'm the saddest, like I'm green

C The very utmost!
Kookie? Lend me your comb
Kookie, Kookie

E Man I got my burners lighted
And my flaps are gonna bend
You're gonna send me to that planet called
You know it baby... the end!

C Kookie, Kookie, lend me your comb
Kookie, Kookie?

E If you ever cut out then I'd be a stray cat
'cause when I'm flyin' solo, nowhere's where I'm at

C Kookie, Kookie, lend me your comb
Kookie, Kookie!

E What's with this comb caper, baby?
Why do you wanna latch onto my comb!

C I just want you to stop combing your hair... and kiss me.
You're the maximum utmost!

E Well I'm beamed in on dreamsville and I'm moving right now
'cause that's the kind of scene that I dig
Baby, you're the ginchiest.

(I never bought the 45) Happy

Always wanted to look through it. There's just a hint of it in the Ken Burns Jazz series Hepcats and Alligators being the approved groups, and Ickys being those who stood around and watched rather than dancing.

changes the definitions to keep parents so confused they don't bother paying attention to what their kids are up to.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
