"Black slacks, Black slacks, Black slacks

Black slacks, Black slacks

Take it cool, daddy-o

When I put 'em on, I'm a-rarin' to go"

/Simon and Garfunkel -old friends disk 3

I was wondering if there was a conection between this and two 50's songs:

Black Denim Tousers / The Cheers

Daddy-O / Bonnie Lou

Thank you!

Black Slacks (1957)

made One Hit Wonders of rockabilly artists Joe Bennett and the Sparkletones.


Black denim trousers or "black slacks" ('pegged fourteen' of course) were in fashion among rock 'n' rollers in the late 50s.

"Daddy-O" was a term of fellowship.
