Abigail Beecher – Our (Hip) History Teacher

“History class is
Getting bigger and bigger
They come from miles
Cause they really dig her”

A lot of Freddy Cannon’s songs have a geographical bent: Palisades Park (New Jersey, and his biggest hit), Tallahassee Lassie (his first hit, supposedly written by his mom), Okefenoke, Way Down Yonder in New Orleans, and Boston (My Home Town). This one, however, is about cars, surfboards, and that one hip teacher. Central High could be anywhere in America.
