they can in charlotte-land

quirky 7-11

ME (singing to myself while folding the laundry):  Horsey, horsey on your way, dum dum da da da dum da da da dum . . .  I like to take a horse and buggy, as we go travelin' through the town . . .

HEATHER (agitated):  Mom! 

ME:  Yes?

HEATHER:  Mom!  Horses can't boogie!

(If you're not familiar with the song, you can hear some random people singing it here.)

We sing that all the time, and we teach it to our kids' friends because it's part and parcel of road trips. Does this mean it got passed down from the Corry side? I always wondered.

Interesting. When I think about who taught it to me, my mom comes to mind, but I also remember singing it at the Corry reunion more than anywhere else. So, I would say that it's definitely Corry influenced.

I learned it in college in Cedar. My roomie, Chris, and I sang it and several others of that age and type at a dime a dip Sons of the Utah Pioneer's Dinner. I think her Dad or Grandad was involved. Grandpa Corry might actually have been there too, but this was several years before I met his son.
I'm pretty sure I didn't get it from SLC. Horses really don't boogie in the avenues.

I learned that song from my mom when I was younger than Heather.
