The Parson Is Popular

After no previous references, the parson has come up in 3 of the last dozen or so of the songs I have worked up.

1st, "i've got a feeling i'm falling", 1929, added to the book 2021-05-27. #SongOfTheDay 2021-10-05.
   "Hey Mister Parson, stand by".

2nd, "i'm sitting on top of the world", 1925, added to the book 2021-06-06.
   "Glory, hallelujah, I just phoned the parson
    'Hey, Par, get ready to call!'"

3rd, "i'm crazy 'bout my baby (and my baby's crazy 'bout me)", 1936, added to the book 2021-10-27. #SongOfTheDay 2021-12-18.
   "Parson, get your book out".

A wider range of dates on these songs than I would have expected. I would have thought parson references would have been a fad/meme with a shorter lifespan.


It looks odd now, but it was by design: no new songs were entered from 2021-07-02 thru 2021-09-19. I had started booking gigs and was spending all my playing time practicing the set lists.
