Sandra Dee is Dead

Did she ever live?

For those of my generation, Sandra Dee was the pretty, blond singer-actress who married Bobby Darin. This obituary (also linked here) tells much more. She was nothing like her pure perky image. Her life was dark and haunted, but the lyrics sung by Stockard Channing in Grease live on.

Look At Me, I'm Sandra Dee

Look at me, I'm Sandra Dee
Lousy with virginity
Won't go to bed 'til I'm legally wed
I can't; I'm Sandra Dee

Watch it! Hey I'm Doris Day
I was not brought up that way
Won't come across,
Even Rock Hudson lost
His heart to Doris Day

I don't drink (no)
Or swear (no)
I don't rat my hair (eew)
I get ill from one cigarette
(cough, cough, cough)
Keep your filthy paws
Off my silky draws
Would you pull that crap with Annette?

As for you Troy Donahue,
I know what you wanna do
You got your crust
I'm no object of lust
I'm just plain Sandra Dee

Elvis, Elvis, let me be!
Keep that pelvis far from me!
Just keep your cool
Now your starting to drool
Hey Fongool, I'm Sandra Dee!

Sandy:Are you making fun of me Riz?
Rizzo:Some people are so touchy!

It may be a generational thing. Does the name, Annette Funicello mean anything to you?
