This is a great poem and I love the fact that his writing about the women
that he loves is very cute!

This is a fun piece to work especilly with the youth. The "hook" in
this song is "Jump back, honey, jump back!" If presented to a crowd,
allowing the "audience" to recite the "hook" in unison creates a lasting
impression. It is often requested!

The lyrics of this poem were used, with very little alteration, in 1956 by
rock 'n' roll pioneer Gene Vincent on his first album under the title "Jump
Back, Honey, Jump Back" with composer credit going to someone called
Brooks.
