Jim by way of Amy at ai love music aisasami prompts us with songs that have Nonsense lyrics. This sounds fun 🀩 Okay, the song that immediately came to mind takes me back to the gym at Central Catholic High School circa 1980 something for Friday night dances. We didn’t really dance to this song though unless you can call jumping around like pogo sticks dancing. Mild mosh pit vibes. Hey that makes me think about another nonsense song. See below for a twofer.

Don’t think me unkind
Words are hard to find
The only cheques I’ve left unsigned
From the banks of chaos in my mind
And when their eloquence escapes me
Their logic ties me up and rapes me

De do do do, de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do, de da da da
Their innocence will pull me through
De do do do, de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do, de da da da
They’re meaningless and all that’s true

Poets, priests and politicians
Have words to thank for their positions
Words that scream for your submission
And no one’s jamming their transmission
‘Cos when their eloquence escapes you
Their logic ties you up and rapes you

De do do do, de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do, de da da da
Their innocence will pull me through
De do do do, de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do, de da da da
They’re meaningless and all that’s true

(De do do do, de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do, de da da da
Their innocence will pull me through
De do do do, de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do, de da da da
They’re meaningless and all that’s true)

De Do Do Do, De Da Da Da was written by Sting and performed by the Police

Rock Lobster. Lyrics within. Writer(s): Keith Strickland, Cindy Wilson, Fred Schneider, Ricky Wilson, Kate Pierson.

Sunday Reflections: A Week in Review ~ 12/12/21

I’m mess with this social experiment I’m engaging in. End of year folks, then I’m pulling the plug. And I’ll write about the results unless I’m completely bonkers by then.

Anywho, yesterday I got new tennies. When you wear shoes until they virtually fall apart before getting new ones, you get sticker shock when it is finally time to replace. I mean c’mon over $100 bucks for sneakers?!?!? Ri-donk-a-donk. I know I’m showing my age but I can’t help it.

I couldn’t find anything at the first stop so we moseyed over to another and 1/2 price baby. That’s the way you do it. I have buyers’ remorse though because I narrowed down to two pair and went with the wrong one. I have a thing about white soles and sidewalls … yep my kicks are like tires. I dislike how dirty they get so I picked the navy and grey. I guess they’re ok but I think I liked the other ones better even if my OCD and cleanliness quirks would be pinging. Lulu Belle was with me and she keeps telling me, I wouldn’t have liked the others. Says to me “remember you told me NOT to let you buy shoes like that”. And I did. Once upon a time.

Anywho part two. Enough blathering about. Time for a quick recap. Yeah buddy.
