Like Bing ~ A Song

For this post I’m featuring the song “Like Bing,” in honor of my dad, who died 13 years ago this month. “Like Bing” is a tune that captures my appreciation for the classy era of performers my parents enjoyed and shared with me while I was growing up. My dad especially cultivated in me a love for music. I have great memories of singing and harmonizing with him on road trips. And to this day, I love hearing Bing Crosby’s voice, as it calls to mind some treasured good times. To hear, “Like Bing,” visit http://www.tammywinn.com/music/. It is the fifth track on the “Calling Deep” album. May you be inspired!

Give him eyes like Clark Gable
Let him dance like Fred Astaire
Make him classy like Sinatra
And he can take me anywhere

 

Have him smile like Elvis
Furnish fun like Milton Berle
Grant a wonderful life like Jimmy
So he’ll win over this girl

 

Just don’t forget one very important trait
This may be the most essential thing
For the beau of my dreams I wish to have
A man who can sing like Bing

 

Garnish charm like Bob Hope
Build in soul like Nat King Cole
With one hundred years like George Burns
He’ll match my every goal

 

Just don’t forget one very important trait
This may be the most essential thing
For the beau of my dreams I wish to have
A man who can sing like Bing
