Uke-Song: leisure news -- "THREE BEARS IN OUR HOT-TUB", as sung by Frank Sinatra


ORIGINAL SONG: "Three Coins in The Fountain", 1954, as performed by Frank Sinatra. The song was written by Jule Styne (melody) and Sammy Cahn (lyrics) for the romantic film "Three Coins in the Fountain". The film has a plot involving Rome's famous Trevi Fountain, with a man named Giorgio as one of the principal characters. The song received an Academy Award in 1955 for Best Original Song. Hear Sinatra croon the tune HERE.

PARODY COMPOSED: Giorgio Coniglio, 2017. To see the lyrics displayed more concisely without the chord-indications (and to return to "Daily Illustrated Nonsense"), click HERE.

INSPIRATION: A newsfeed story related that a California man found his outdoor jacuzzi invaded by a bear who had climbed over his fence; the animal drank a cocktail at tub-side, then left the property and fell asleep in a nearby tree. Similar tales are not uncommon in the Pacific Northwest. The current story of ursine home-invasion romance is considerably more elaborate than any single news report found online. And what could be better than to have Sinatra sing about it?
