Story about this misheard lyric by: Sheila Munroe

A lot of words in this are hard to understand. I guess they are Cajun words. Long before I had any idea this song wasn't supposed to be all in standard English, I made out what best I could of the words.

Dated Song Lyrics:

"Hey, Good Lookin'"
The Dated Lyrics:
I got a hot rod Ford and a two dollar bill,
and I know a spot right over the hill.
There's soda pop and the dancin's free.
Why They're Dated:
In the 1950s when this came out, and a soda pop might have cost a nickel or a dime, these words might have made the intended impression. But today two dollars isn't going to impress much in this context. If that's all the money the singer has, today he'd need to look for a place the soda pop as well as the dancing is free. Because today, wherever soda pop is for sale, two dollars is likely not enough to buy it for two.
