Cherry Coke

I ordered a cherry coke at Corvette Diner and it brought me back to the days when nothing was complicated.

Cherry Coke


They made me a cherry coke

Took me back to another 

A different milestone reached

But  remembered  like yesterday

Trying to figure out who I am,  like today

How many cherries are in my glass

How long has it been

Talking about it back then

Was such a sin

Ladies just waited for Prince Charming to come along

Was it right, was it wrong, he was charming…..

I drank the cherry coke today

Each cherry one by one

Smiling at yesterday’s memories

Laughing in the sun

Chugging down my soda pop but now I chase some rum

following the yellow brick road to another fork

In time, mellowing out and watching the world with a glass of Cherry

But now the cherry’s gone away

Replaced by Zifendel

And Chardonay and IPA

But every once in awhile

I crave the days of cherry cokes

And poodle skirts and smile.

Nothing quite like a Cherry Coke made at a real fountain, And back in the day the best in this town was Palisades Garden Skating Rink in north park, Had my first one there in 1948 and then later just a block down the street Lucky boy hamburgers. Evokes real memories of good day's past. Damn shame I wouldn't even know where to look for a fountain made Cherry Coke now, LOL !
