Best Dress Song

Hey now put your best dress on
I'm tired of fighting
Let's take it out on the town,
do some old style dancing
We should just have a good time
We can stay out all night long
Hey now put your best dress on
Hey now put your best dress on

No price I wouldn't pay
to always have you with me
Nothing that I could take
feels like the thrill you give me
I'll show you such a good time
keep you up 'til the darkest dawn
Hey now put your best dress on
Hey now put your best dress on

If you go on like this, none of the best people will have you for a doctor. When the archers had stepped forward, the herald rose and proclaimed the rules of the game: how that each man should shoot three shots, and to him who shot best the prize of a yoke of fat steers should belong. He was now, accordingly, in search of the best dancer (possessed of the indispensable personal attractions) who was to be found in the theatres of the Continent.

Cerastium is a genus of annual, winter annual, or perennial plants belonging to the family Caryophyllaceae. The around 100 species are commonly called Mouse-ear chickweed; different species are found nearly worldwide but the greatest concentration is mainly from the northern temperate areas of the world. A number are common weeds in fields and on disturbed ground.

Cerastium species are used as food plants by the larvae of some Lepidoptera species including Coleophora chalcogrammella (which feeds exclusively on Cerastium arvense) and Coleophora striatipennella (which has been recorded on Cerastium fontanum).
