Listen to Bobbie Gentry Singing her Ode to Billie Joe
Bobbie Gentry wrote and recorded the wonderful song, Ode to Billie Joe, in 1967. We, at Mimi Berlin, can’t get enough of this 1960s not-your-average-country-&-western song. It’s about how daily life goes (on) in a little community in the south part of the USA. The way Bobbie Gentry performs is breathtaking.
Hope you like it too! xoxo

In The Flesh. Darlin’ I can’t wait to see you. Your picture ain’t enough I can’t wait to touch you, in the flesh. Darlin’ I can’t wait to hear you. Remembering your love Is nothing without you, in the flesh. Went walking one day on the lower East side. Met you with a girlfriend, you were so divine She said, “Hands off this one sweetie, this boy is mine.” I couldn’t resist you – I’m not deaf, dumb, and blind Darlin’ darlin’ darlin’ Now you’re out of town. Those girls that you run with. They bring my head down. Ooh Darlin’ darlin’ Watch out if I see you ‘Cause if you say hello It’ll mean you wanna see me in the flesh. Warm and soft, in the flesh. Close and hot, in the flesh. (song/ lyrics Deborah Harry and Chris Stein)
