I'm a Believer

Tuesday, April 26, 2011

I heard this while I was walking the pups tonight - of course, I sang along!

Written by Neil Diamond and recorded by The Monkees in 1966


I thought love was only true in fairy tales
Meant for someone else but not for me.


Love was out to get me
That's the way it seemed.
Disappointment haunted all my dreams.


Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind.


I'm in love, I'm a believer!
I couldn't leave her if I tried.


I thought love was more or less a given thing,
Seems the more I gave the less I got.


What's the use in tryin'?
All you get is pain.
When I needed sunshine I got rain.


Then I saw her face, now I'm a believer
Not a trace of doubt in my mind.


I'm in love, I'm a believer!
I couldn't leave her if I tried

  mmm facebook...

Great comparison...
Great song... getting old means I can sing to the oldies...
This new head banging music... wonder if this generation will be able to sing along in the twilight years??
Look a tad suspect grannies thumping feet & heads instead of toe tapping...
Thanks for the memory lane trip...

    I have rather strange taste in music I think but I always loved a few of the Monkees songs. As usual the pics are adorable!

More Easter Songs

Monday, April 25, 2011

A couple more short Easter season songs!

Hot cross buns!
Hot cross buns!


One a penny, two a penny,
Hot cross buns!


If you have no daughters
Give them to your sons


One a penny, two a penny,
Hot cross buns.

(should have saved this picture yesterday for today)

Traditional English



In your Easter bonnet, with all the frills upon it,
You'll be the grandest lady in the Easter Parade.


I'll be all in clover and when they look you over,
I'll be the proudest fellow in the Easter Parade.


On the avenue, Fifth Avenue, the photographers will snap us,
And you'll find that you're in the rotogravure.


Oh, I could write a sonnet about your Easter bonnet,
And of the girl I'm taking to the Easter Parade.


Written by Irving Berlin - 1933

(rotogravure is some kind of printing process from a cylinder)

Here Comes Peter Cottontail!

Saturday, April 23, 2011

Just in time for the season - a classic from 1950 - Gene Autry (!) did the famous recording of the song written by Jack Rollins and Steve Nelson


Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppin', Easter's on its way



Bringin' every girl and boy
Baskets full of Easter joy
Things to make your Easter bright and gay


He's got jelly beans for Tommy
Colored eggs for sister Sue
There's an orchid for your mommy
And an Easter bonnet too


Oh! here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppity, happy Easter Day


Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppin', Easter's on its way


Try to do the things you should
Maybe if you're extra good
He'll roll lots of Easter eggs your way


You'll wake up on Easter mornin'
And you'll know that he was there
When you find those chocolate bunnies
That he's hiding everywhere


Oh! here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail
Hippity hoppity, happy Easter Day


So many funny bunny pictures!

    Too cute! We used to raise bunnies to eat when times were tough. I love bunnies (alive) better than on a plate. Happy Easter!

Walk Like a Man

Friday, April 22, 2011

As I was walking the pups tonight, Samurai, my little warrior, decided to lunge at a bicyclist (or maybe a pedestrian, whatever). I pulled him by the harness to where he was walking on his hind legs - told him you wanna walk like a man? And the song was stuck in my head! I like Frankie Valli and the Four Seasons from 1963.



Oh how you tried to cut me down to size
Telling dirty lies to my friends


But my own father said give her up don't bother
The world isn't coming to an end



(he said just) Walk like a man
Talk like a man
Walk like a man my son


No woman's worth
Crawling on the earth
Just walk like a man my son



Good-bye baby I don't mean maybe
I'm gonna get along somehow


Soon you'll be cryin on account of all your lyin
Oh yeah just look who's laughing now



(I'm gonna) walk like a man
Fast as I can


Walk like a man from you
I'll tell the world to forget about it girl
And walk like a man from you

    I have that song on my mp3 player. I love oldies. I really like that one. Listen to all my oldies when I'm working out or driving long distances by myself. As always, love the pics. Have a great Easter weekend!

Rockin' Robin

Friday, April 22, 2011

This one is for my parakeets! (and Earth Day) Covered by many artists, I like Bobby Day's 1958 version

He rocks in the tree-top all a day long
Hoppin' and a-boppin' and a-singin' the song
All the little birds on J-Bird St.
Love to hear the robin goin' tweet tweet tweet


Rockin' robin (tweet tweet tweet)
Rockin' robin (tweet tweet tweet)
Oh rockin' robin well you really gonna rock tonight



Every little swallow, every chickadee
Every little bird in the tall oak tree
The wise old owl, the big black crow
Flapping them wings sayin' go bird go


Rockin' robin (tweet tweet tweet)
Rockin' robin (tweet tweet tweet)
Oh rockin' robin well you really gonna rock tonight



A wordy little raven at the bird's first dance
Taught him how to do the bop and it was grand
He started goin' steady and bless my soul
He out popped the buzzard and the oriole


He rocks in the tree-top all a day long
Hoppin' and a-boppin' and a-singin' the song
All the little birds on J-Bird St.
Love to hear the robin goin' tweet tweet tweet



Rockin' robin (tweet tweet tweet)
