August Break - 2019 - Song Lyric Sunday Edition

You are going to get two posts from me today because I can't connect the prompts from Song Lyric Sunday and August Break.  Hope you don't mind.

First up is Song Lyric Sunday as curated by Jim Adams.  I decided to go with a pretty old show, The Courtship of Eddie's Father.  It was on from 1969 to 1972 and was a cute show about a young boy, Brandon Cruz, trying to find a wife for his widowed dad, Bill Bixby.  There were a lot of up and coming actors on the show and it was a feel good kind of program.  Each episode started with a conversation like this: 

The song was written by Harry Nilsson and while I'm not a big fan of his, the song fits perfectly.

The lyrics are short:

Best Friend
People let me tell you 'bout my best friend, 
He's a warm hearted person who'll love me till the end. 
People let me tell you bout my best friend, 
He's a one boy cuddly toy, my up, my down, my pride and joy. 
People let me tell you 'bout him he's so much fun 
Whether we're talkin' man to man or whether we're talking son to son. 
'Cause he's my best friend. 
Yes he's my best friend.

Bill Bixby went on to play David Banner (the Hulk) and sadly died at age 59 from prostate cancer.  He also had a brief show, The Magician, and was on My Favorite Martian with the late Ray Walston.  Personally, I always thought Mr. Bixby was a handsome guy so I enjoyed watching him on all the shows. 

And there's your #SLS.  Make sure to pop over and see the other participants in today's song fest.
