"Early to bed and early to rise, makes a man healthy, wealthy, and wise," and "A penny saved is a penny earned" are a couple of the proverbs Ben Franklin collected in Poor Richard's Almanack, first published in 1732 on this date. Ever since, proverbs have had a part in popular songs. Can you think of one? Include your suggestion in the comments below (please include your first name and town).

What we played:


"Early To Bed" - Morphine

"Abscence Makes The Heart Grow Fonder" - Loudon Wainwright III

"Beauty Is Only Skin Deep" - The Temptations

"Horse To The Water" (feat. George Harrison) - Jools Holland & His Rhythm & Blues Orchestra
