Dolly Parton, “Shinola”

Dolly’s had enough, and as you’d expect from Ms. Parton, she doesn’t mince words as she gives this arrogant jerk the proverbial boot: “You don’t know love from shinola/With You, love is not what I found/A woman needs someone to hold her/Not someone to just lay her down.”

This song is silly, but it will surely elicit a smile. Dolly’s bitter-tinged lyrics amusingly display her potty mouth, her performance has attitude and the energetic production are absolutely infectious.
