Miss Susie sat upon it and broke her little ask me no more questions, I'll tell you no more lies. The boys are in the bathroom, zipping up their flies are in the city. Bees are in the park. Miss Susie and her boyfriend are kissing in the d-a-r-k, d-a-r-k, d-a-r-k, dark, dark, dark. A simple song from your childhood, right? But have you ever wondered how Miss Susie got in to all those messes? Or what that song was specifically referring to? Imagine that the story of Miss Susie isn't an innocent, age-appropriate song. What if she was a party girl whose life intertwined with other campfire songs?
