#SLS ~ 3/7/21

Jim prompts us with Cappuccino/Coffee/Expresso/Latte/Mocha. I am stumped. Off to Google to search and surprisingly there is quite a list from which to choose. Mostly songs I haven’t heard before. I want to stay with what I know and picked “Lady Marmalade” written by Kenny Nolan and Bob Crewe performed by Labelle in 1974. I’m not peeking but I imagine we’ll have duplicates today. Great minds thinking alike and all that. But I’ve been wrong before though so we shall see. Without further ado, hope you enjoy.

Hey sister, go sister
Soul sister, go sister
Hey sister, go sister
Soul sister, go sister

He met Marmalade down in Old New Orleans
Strutting her stuff on the street
She said, “Hello, hey Joe
You wanna give it a go?” hmm hmm

Gitchi gitchi ya ya da da
Gitchi gitchi ya ya here
Mocha chocolata, ya ya
Creole Lady Marmalade

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?

He stayed in her boudoir
While she freshened up
That boy drank all that Magnolia wine
On her black satin sheets
Where he started to freak

Gitchi gitchi ya ya da da
Gitchi gitchi ya ya here
Mocha chocolata, ya ya
Creole Lady Marmalade

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?

Hey, hey, hey
Seeing her skin
Feeling silky smooth
Color of cafe au lait

Made the savage beast inside
Roaring until it cried
“More, more, more!”

Now he’s at home doing 9 to 5
Living his brave life of lies
But when he turns off to sleep
All memories keep more, more, more

Gitchi gitchi ya ya da da da
Gitchi gitchi ya ya here
Mocha chocolata, ya ya
Creole Lady Marmalade

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?
Voulez-vous couchez avec moi ce soir?
Creole Lady Marmalade

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?
Voulez-vous couchez avec moi ce soir?
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?

Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi ce soir?
Voulez-vous coucher avec moi?

Gitchi gitchi ya ya da da
Gitchi gitchi ya ya here
Mocha chocolata, ya ya
Gitchi gitchi ya ya here

  1. This song reached #1 on the charts and everyone learned the French phrase “Do you want to sleep with me tonight?”. Controversy erupted and they were forced to change it to do you want to dance with me. Nice choice Jill.
