EDDIE:
(sings)
My head it used to swim
From the perfume I smelled.
My hands kind of fumbled
With her white plastic belt.

(he hands his saxophone to BRAD)

I’d taste her baby pink lipstick
And that’s when I’d melt.

(stops by COLUMBIA)

And she’d whisper in my ear
Tonight she really was mine
Get back in front and put

Some hair oil on.
Buddy Holly was singing

His very last song.
With your arms around your girl
You tried to ah sing along.
It felt pretty good, whoo.
