Brill me tomorrow, Zippy

Today’s Zippy takes us to an alternative (olfactory porcine) version of 1619 Broadway (at 49th St.) in NYC, where Goffni and Knig cranked out their hits:

Yes, another Zippy burlesque.

The model is the Gerry Goffin & Carole King hit “Will You Love Me Tomorrow”:

1: Tonight you’re mine completely
You give your love so sweetly
Tonight the light of love is in your eyes
But will you love me tomorrow

3: Tonight with words unspoken
You say that I’m the only one
But will my heart be broken
When the night meets the morning sun

Chorus: I’d like to know that your love
Is love I can be sure of
So tell me now and I won’t ask again
Will you still love me tomorrow

(Is that enough for an earworm? It is for me.)

From Wikipedia:

Love Me Tomorrow”, also known as “Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow”, is a song written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King. It was originally recorded in 1960 by The Shirelles, who took their single to number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. The song is also notable for being the first song by an all-girl group to reach No. 1 in the United States. It has since been recorded by many artists over the years, including a 1971 cover version by co-writer Carole King [on Tapestry].

Goffin and King did much of their song-writing in that famous crucible of popular music, the Brill Building (at 1619 Broadway in NYC).
