This one goes out to Lyfie and Haley Mills



On January 19, 1988 my buddy and I sat in my bedroom with guitars and wrote a song about our hero Haley Mills. And it goes something like this: ah 1, ah 2wah, ah 3ya , ah 4ya... ps: So glad that Yaye and I found you again... sincerely Tallulah

Here's a story 'bout a young New Zealand Girl
Who sailed cross the ocean
to the wonderful world
Disneyright after Wild Kingdom
Marlon Perkins and then some


(chorus) Hail oh Haley Haley Mills
To hell with Tom Dooley and Beverly Sills
I ain't had no worries I ain't had no ills
Since I had a hankerin' fer.... Haley Mills
I ate a cheeseburger with no cheese on it
Don't like Parkay but I'll eat Blue Bonnet
You inspired a whole BUNCH
Of shakespeares sonnets
It ain't Dutch Cleanser it's Haley's Comet

Sittin' out back smokin' pure Havana
Ma says Walt's on the phone
Yo got Pollyanna
It's based on a novel by a man named Lear
If you must return it you can send it here

(chorus) Hail oh Haley Haley Mills
To hell with Tom Dooley and Beverly Sills
I ain't had no worries I ain't had no ills
Since I had a hankerin' fer.... Haley Mills
I ate a cheeseburger
with no cheese on it
Don't like Parkay but I'll eat Blue Bonnet
You inspired a whole BUNCH
Of shakespeares sonnets
It ain't Dutch Cleanser it's Haley's Comet
