I've always enjoyed don't you ever wash that thing. And it occurred to me that frank made regular changes to the "all through our show...ruth has been thinking..." part of said song.<br><br>I was just wonderin what everybody(w/ access to boots) considered to be their favorite show in which frank elaborates on what ruth is thinking.<br><br>mine: 1974 - 11-17-1974 Phillidelphia Pa<br>ruth has been thinking...ruth has been thinking all through our show???<br>

well,and "what will Rumi do?" is also a bit inspired by this! surely she wears very strange glasses.<br><br>(Rumi was - or maybe she still is? - one of the percussionists of the ensemble modern)

This is true...
My brother and I were listening to Roxy while the TV was on ... and on TV this girl stormed out of her house and sat herself down on a park bench. Her boyfriend chased after her and plonked himself next to her just as FZ said ..." All through this film, Ruth has been thinking, what can I possibly do that will amaze everyone, I think she's come up with the answer, just keep your eye on her"
At which point the girl in the film on TV kissed the guy passionately.

We just fell about laughing.....
