FZ: Let's make this a democratic process--how would you like to have this song end? One at a time! With a boogie? Wait a minute, just a minute. Just so that we won't be inadequlate . . . inadequately represented here, we have one . . . one side that says it should end with a boogie. Does anybody wanna have it end with a ballad? Ok, we have some other people wanna have it end with a ballad. How many wanna have it end with a march? How many wanna have it end with a polka? How many would like to have it end with a dog food jingle? Well, let's see . . . so far, looks like it's a choice between the boogie and the ballad. Contestant number one would be the boogie! How many say boogie? How many say ballad? Well, guess what it ends with!
