BOYD BACHMANN, Die Omama aus Omaha, 1970

By 1970 Boyd Bachmann, the handsome former Danish king of swing, had fully transformed into a wacky old comedian.

Omama aus Omaha (The grandma from Omaha) is counting all the things that were bought from the inheritance of the grandma from Omaha in the U.S.Ahhh.: Bubblegum, a blue whig, a musical clock, a Mickey Mouse, a lady´s Colt with a handle made of gold, a cowboy hat made in Hollywood and a motor-driven Whiskey bottle opener:

    Ich nehme an, Du weisst, dass es das auf französisch auch gibt?

    Brigitte Bardot hat übrigens auch eine Version davon gemacht. Danke aber für den Fund, immer wieder herrlich, Deine Platten!
