This is from Lamont Dozier's "Fish ain't bitin'" (1973) Can someone
explain the expression "The short is off the stick"? Thanks.
And meanwhile in DC
Tricky Dick is trying to be slick
And the short is off the stick
Because I'm gonna get it
Tricky Dick, please quit
There's a story attached: Dozier's record company (ABC) published a
letter from Nixon's administration complaining about the single. Boosted
the song into top 10.
