Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
Hmmm - freaky frigid weather, insane scary news from all corners, sad brokenhearted song - it all fits.....

The biggest hit version was recorded by Lenny Welch in 1963, reaching number four on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 chart.|

|As a group of soldiers stood in
formation at an Army Base, the Drill Sergeant barked, "All right! All
you idiots, fall out."
As the rest of the squad wandered away, one soldier remained at attention. The Drill Instructor walked over until he was eye to eye with him, and then raised a single eyebrow.
The soldier smiled and said, "Sure was a lot of 'em, huh, sir?"
