Christmas (High) Ball
The incomparable Bessie Smith weighs in (sorry for the pun)today. She's heading out to a big Holiday party, and there might be a beverage or two consumed.
The song features the immortal lines: "Christmas comes but once a year/And to me it brings good cheer/And to everyone/Who likes wine and beer."
