118|365 “Dey’s So Fresh” (5/2/11)
Strawberries! Maybe you like them, I only like them if they’re covered in chocolate or soaked in sugar but they are really delicious looking.
I’m reminded of the opera Porgy & Bess and the song ‘Strawberry Woman’, which is a vendor singing her street cries to sell her wares:
Oh dey’s so fresh an’ fine
An’ dey’s jus’ off de vine
Strawberries, strawberries, strawberries,
Oh, dey’s so fresh an’ fine
An’ dey’s just off de vine,
Strawberries, strawberries, strawberries
Here’s a 30 second clip of the memorable song as sung by Dorothy Danbridge in the 1959 film version (my favorite) of Porgy and Bess.
