Dancing Queen

Tuesday, May 03, 2011

I was listening to this as I walked my pups tonight. I boogied right along! ABBA in 1976

You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, diggin'* the dancing queen



Friday night and the lights are low
Looking out for the place to go
Where they play the right music, getting in the swing
You come in to look for a king


Anybody could be that guy
Night is young and the music's high
With a bit of rock music, everything is fine


You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance...



You are the dancing queen, young and sweet, only seventeen
Dancing queen, feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, diggin' the dancing queen


You're a teaser, you turn them on
Leave them burning and then you're gone



Looking out for another, anyone will do
Youre in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance...



You are the dancing queen, young and sweet, only seventeen
Dancing queen, feel the beat from the tambourine
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
See that girl, watch that scene, diggin' the dancing queen

    Love the way you do your blogs!

Love ABBA DQ too - one of the songs on my ipod for when I run - the one sung from Mamma Mia though.

Raindrops Keep Falling on My Head

Sunday, May 01, 2011

May Day - already lots of fairly warm to hot days, and I'm looking at rain and snow flurries outside. I didn't walk the pups this morning because of the winds - took a chance of the precip later. Gambled and lost! Hope I get a half hour somewhere for a quick walk.

From Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, written by Hal David and Burt Bacharach and performed by B. J. Thomas


Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
And just like the guy whose feet are too big for his bed
Nothin' seems to fit
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'



So I just did me some talkin' to the sun
And I said I didn't like the way he got things done
Sleepin' on the job
Those raindrops are fallin' on my head, they keep fallin'



But there's one thing I know
The blues they send to meet me won't defeat me
It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me


Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me


'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me



[trumpet]

It won't be long till happiness steps up to greet me


Raindrops keep fallin' on my head
But that doesn't mean my eyes will soon be turnin' red
Cryin's not for me



'Cause I'm never gonna stop the rain by complainin'
Because I'm free
Nothin's worryin' me

    I wish we had a few raindrops falling on our heads here down south! It was a pretty nice day today, a little cooler than it's been and winds not too bad., But we need the moisture sooooo bad.
Stay warm and dry!

Somebody's Knockin'

Saturday, April 30, 2011

This one just popped into my head while I was walking the pups today. Written by Penney and Jerry Gillespie and performed by Terri Gibbs in 1981


Somebody's knockin'
Should I let him in
Lord it's the devil
Would you look at him


I've heard about him
But I never dreamed
He'd have blue eyes and blue jeans


Well somebody's talkin'
He's whispering to me
Your place or my place
Well, which will it be


I'm gittin' weaker
And he's comin' on strong
But I don't wanna go wrong


He must have tapped my telephone line
He must have known
I'm spendin' my time
Alone


He says we'll have one heavenly night
My fever's burnin'
So he ought be right at home


Somebody's knockin'
Should I let him in
Lord, it's the devil
Would you look at him


I've heard about him
But I never dreamed
He'd have blue eyes and blue jeans


He must have tapped my telephone line
He must have known
I'm spendin' my time
Alone


He says we'll have one heavenly night
My fever's burnin'
So he ought be right at home


(Somebody's knockin')
Somebody's knockin'
Oh, somebody's knockin'

  Oooh, I think you are giving me a sign! I just signed adoption papers for a 3 year old black kitty. I have always wanted a black kitty-they are so pretty. They were having an adoption day at a pet store and I went with friends who were looking to adopt - I wasn't but there was this lovely, super friendly kitty who was black. Came back home and thought about it and went back today to sign the papers. Wish me luck! Could not believe it when I looked at your blog and saw all of those black kitties!

(I'm Not Your) Steppin' Stone

Saturday, April 30, 2011

I could have used some stones in my pocket tonight when I walked the dogs before work - more high sustained winds with gusts over 40 mph - at one point, I literally stopped in my tracks until the gusts dropped enough for me to continue. Good thing we were almost done with the 1.5 mile walk!


by Tommy Boyce & Bobby Hart - recorded first by Paul Revere and the Raiders, but known most from the Monkee's version - both in 1966. Other artists have also covered it, but who cares?

I-I-I-I-I'm not your steppin' stone
I-I-I-I-I'm not your steppin' stone
You're trying to make your mark in society,
You're using all the tricks that you used on me,
You're reading all them high-fashion magazines,
The clothes you're wearing, girl, they're causing public scenes.


I said, I-I-I-I-I'm not your steppin' stone
I-I-I-I-I'm not your steppin' stone
(No!) Not your steppin' stone
Not your steppin' stone



When I first met you, girl, you didn't have no shoes,
But now you're walking 'round like you're front page news,
You've been awful careful 'bout the friends you choose,
But you won't find my name in your book of "Who's Who".


I said, I-I-I-I-I'm not your steppin' stone
(No, girl, not me!)I-I-I-I-I'm not your steppin' stone (No!)
Not your steppin' stone
I'm not your steppin' stone


Not your steppin' stone
Not your steppin' stone
Not your steppin' stone
Not your steppin' stone


No, girl, I'm not your steppin' stone
Not your steppin' stone
Not your steppin' stone
Not your steppin' stone

Poor Poor Pitiful Me

Friday, April 29, 2011

I woke up early (2 hours before my alarm was set - grr!). Walked the pups and they went really slowly . Poked my eye with the mascara brush. Couldn't find my glasses - which I had been wearing before my shower - had to put on my backup pair (at least one prescription behind). So, driving in, I'm thinking "poor, poor pitiful me". Then, I realized I'd just sailed thru 3 lights that normally I catch red! Hey, better karma. Unfortunately, it's been very, very busy.

Luinda Ronstadt (and others) 1977


Well I lay my head
on the railroad track


Waiting on the Double E
But the train don't run


by here no more
Poor poor pitiful me


Poor poor pitiful me
Poor poor pitiful me
Oh these boys won't let me be
Lord have mercy on me
Woe woe is me


Well I met a man out in Hollywood
Now I ain't naming names
Well he really worked me over good



Just like Jesse James
Yes he really worked me over good
He was a credit to his gender


Put me through some changes Lord
Sort of like a Waring blender


Poor poor pitiful me
Poor poor pitiful me
Oh these boys won't let me be
Lord have mercy on me
Woe woe is me


Well I met a boy in the Vieux Carres
Down in Yokohama
He picked me up and he threw me down
He said "Please don't hurt me Mama"


Poor poor pitiful me
Poor poor pitiful me
Oh these boys won't let me be
Lord have mercy on me
Woe woe is me


Poor poor poor me
Poor poor pitiful me
Poor poor poor me


Poor poor pitiful me
Poor poor poor me
Poor poor pitiful me...
