Goodnight from Sydney

Tonight's photo: "Platform 2"

Before I was so rudely interrupted by health problems, I started posting snippets of song lyrics for this final post of the day.

I have posted two by Phil Ochs, which (and I make no apology for this) were rather political. Tonight is an example of an another category - lines that appeal to me for no reason other than - I like them!

This is from Mr New York himself - Lou Reed (Halloween Parade).

There's the Born Again Losers and the Lavender Boozers and some crack team from Washington Heights,
The boys from Avenue B and the girls from Avenue D a Tinkerbell in tights

Now I have a request to make. For a couple of years I have been trying to find out what this line means.

There's a girl from Soho with a teeshirt saying "I Blow"
She's with the "jive five 2 plus 3"

OK, I figured out the first line, but I'm buggered if I can find out what "jive five 2 plus 3" means. Can anyone help!

Wherever you may be - be safe!
