COME BACK MOXIE COME BACK

Moxie may not be coming back soon but hopefully the track that goes with the image below will be 
Alas, it is not yet sounding as I would like it to sound so in the meantime. . . . have you ever been searching for your spectacles to discover you have them on your head?

Moxie (n.)
''courage' 1930, from Moxie, brand name of a bitter, non- alcoholic drink, 1885, perhaps as far back as 1876 as the name of a patent medicine advertised to 'build up your nerve':; despite legendary origin stories put out by the company that made it, it is perhaps ultimately from a New England Indian word (it figures in river and lake names in Maine, where it is apparently from Abenaki and means 'dark water')
