Trick Or Treat - A Little of Both

Repost from Two Years Ago

Never has there been such a treat about turning tricks as the musical about the Chicken Ranch, The Best Little Whorehouse in Texas.


It's just a little bitty pissant country place,
nothing much to see
No drinking allowed, we get a nice quiet crowd,
plain as it can be
It's just a piddly squatin no time country place,
nothing to hide at all
Just lots of good will, and maybe one small thrill,
but there's nothing dirty going on


Now, Miss Mona, I don't know her,
though I've heard the name, oh yes.
But, of course I've no close contact,
so what she is doing I can only guess.
And now, Miss Mona, she's a blemish
on the face of that good town.
I am taking certain steps here,
someone somewhere's gonna have to close her down.

Ooh I love to dance a little sidestep,
now they see me now they don't- I've come and gone and,
ooh I love to sweep around the wide step,
cut a little swathe and lead the people on.

I'm trying to decide if my life is incomplete since I haven't seen that show or the movie they made either.


Happy MM!

Great MM post! I think that this is the movie that introduced me to the incomprable talents of Dolly Parton (smile)...

There were many directions to go with this week's MM words Trick or Treat. I chose to go with Trick and my MM post this week tells a different story about Black Magic.

peace, Villager

THAT'S SOOOOOOO SCARY!!!!!!! You're not secretly in Scotland are you? you've managed to find a picture poster from my music college theatre.

Which is just weird to stumble across on a blog from America.

I love both the movie (Dolly Parton & Burt Reynolds & lots of bare-assed Aggies in the shower scene, c'mon, what's not to love?) and the stage play.
Great use of TRICKS!

Now I'm gonna have the phrase "just a little bitty pissant country place" stuck in my noggin all day!

Interestingly, La Grange is an adorable little town with no sign of The Chicken Ranch. It also has a marvelous, well paved highway leading straight to it from our State Capitol. I'm told that much of the legislature once convened in La Grange.

My favorite song from the musical? You included it ... because I often find myself having to "dance a little sidestep." Durning was so worthy of an Oscar nomination for this performance.
