Dave Brubeck cleaned my kitchen

Patsy Cline made ravioli

Hank Wlliams did my laundry

but there was a lonesome sock longing for a partner

Jason Webley or Etta James or Dar Williams might join me when I paint

(well it depends on what I’m painting)

Ray LaMontagne helped me pack

or maybe wallow

or maybe dream

and how would I get ready to go out on the town without Louis Prima or Ella Fitgerald?
