#SLS ~ 2/6/22

The prompt today is Space, Planets, Aliens suggested by Di of pensitivity101. Thanks Jim for hosting. Since I mentioned a few weeks ago on Melanie’s Share Your World that if I could be anything, I wanted to be a space cowboy, I just had to choose this song. Without further ado, The Joker. Songwriters: Ahmet Ertegun / Eddie Curtis / Steve Miller.

Lyrics

Some people call me the space cowboy, yeah
Some call me the gangster of love
Some people call me Maurice
‘Cause I speak of the pompatus of love a

People talk about me baby
Say I’m doin’ you wrong, doin’ you wrong
Well, don’t you worry, baby, don’t worry
‘Cause I’m right here, right here, right here, right here at home

‘Cause I’m a picker
I’m a grinner
I’m a lover
And I’m a sinner
I play my music in the sun
I’m a joker
I’m a smoker
I’m a midnight toker
I sure don’t want to hurt no one
I’m a picker
I’m a grinner
I’m a lover
And I’m a sinner
I play my music in the sun
I’m a joker
I’m a smoker
I’m a midnight toker
I get my lovin’ on the run
Ooh, whoo, ooh, whoo

You’re the cutest thing that I ever did see
I really love your peaches
Wanna shake your tree
Lovey dovey, lovey dovey, lovey dovey all the time
Ooh wee baby, I’ll sure show you a good time

‘Cause I’m a picker
I’m a grinner
I’m a lover
And I’m a sinner
I play my music in the sun
I’m a joker
I’m a smoker
I’m a midnight toker
I get my lovin’ on the run
I’m a picker
I’m a grinner
I’m a lover
And I’m a sinner
I play my music in the sun
I’m a joker
I’m a smoker
I’m a midnight toker
I sure don’t want to hurt no one

Ooh, whoo, ooh, whoo

People keep talkin’ about me baby
Say I’m doin’ you wrong
Well don’t you worry, don’t worry, no don’t worry mama
‘Cause I’m right here at home
You’re the cutest thing I ever did see
I really love your peaches
Wanna shake your tree
Lovey dovey, lovey dovey, lovey dovey all the time
Come on baby now, I’ll show you a good time

Sunday Reflections: A Week in Review ~2/6/22

To begin, 38 years ago, at exactly this moment, 7:15 a.m. CST, I was in a conference room across the hall from the C suite in new employee orientation. To say I was nervous is an understatement. I was embarking on my first “real” as opposed to fake job. LOL. Blink and here we are in 2022. As I reflect back, I realize I’ve been blessed beyond measure with a career spanning decades that I sincerely still enjoy. Okay, enough about that. I’m not crying, you’re crying. Moving on to a quick roll call so I can go eat my special breakfast.

Peace y’all. Until next time. Stay safe.

As always, more to come.
