Music Monday: Peel Me A Grape

Blossom Dearie performing "Peel Me A Grape" live in 1999, she's about 75 years old in this video.  Brilliant lyrics (& music) by Dave Frishberg.

"Pop me a cork, french me a fry
Crack me a nut, bring a bowl full of bon-bons
Chill me some wine, keep standing by
Just entertain me, champagne me
Show me you love me, kid glove me
Best way to cheer me, cashmere me
I'm getting hungry, peel me grape"

Here's a gorgeous clip from French TV in 1965.

What a peach.  Stick around to watch the blues improv (starting around 3:11).  She was so faciile on those keys.  **snaps fingers**
