Robert from Englewood, FlThis song is a classic period piece.I just love this song.The pure quality of the recording, excelent harmonies, and strange lyrics and ending.I am a solo guitar player and I love playing this song but I've never had the courage to perform it in front of a live audience. I know people think the song is bubblegum, but it's way better than that.Plus, a one hit wonder, adding to the strageness of it.Loved it when it hit the charts, and still do.Would anybody out there play the Tamborine while I sing and play it?
