Lee Morse: T’Aint No Sin to Take Off Your Skin
Today is the birthday of Star of Vaudeville #393: Lee Morse (for the full skinny on this quirky singer go here). In honor of the day we present her recording of the irresistible tune “T’Aint No Sin (To Take Off Your Skin and Dance Around in Your Bones)” written by the great Edgar Leslie, and clearly inspired by the acquisition of a rhyming dictionary.
