Mrs. Miller - Green Tambourine
With apologies to the Lemon Pipers and the Peppermint Rainbow, who each had recorded this song with the same backing track, though of course the Lemon Pipers were the ones who had the hit with this song. I think this version is absolutely hilarious. I find it kind of fitting that Mrs. Elva Miller lived out her final days in Vista, California, where I currently call home.
