Saw her at the Texaco just the other day
Even more beautiful, her hair had a touch of gray
We both stood and stared at each other, couldn't say a word
Then I said, "God, it's good to see you"
And she said, "Well, have you heard
They're tearin' down the Cherry Bowl Drive-In tomorrow
Where I first kissed you and ran my fingers through your hair
She's goin' the way all things must go someday
But I will still remember you there
Yes, I will
I will still remember you there"

Then I said, "Little Melissa
She's lookin' more and more like you
Saw her down on Maple Street
She's even got your same smile too
And my Jake Jr. says, "Daddy
Someday I'm gonna marry that girl"
Isn't that just perfect? Oh, such a crazy world

So they're tearin' down the Cherry Bowl Drive-In tomorrow
Where I first kissed you and ran my fingers through your hair
She's goin' the way all things must go someday
But I will still remember you there
Yes, I will, yes, I will
I will still remember you there

"Can you get away tomorrow?
If you can't, I understand
It's just that when the big screen falls
I wanna be holdin' your hand
Holdin' your hand

When they're tearin' down
The Cherry Bowl Drive-In tomorrow
Where I first kissed you and ran my fingers through your hair
She's goin' the way all things must go someday
But I will still remember you there
Yes, I will, yes, I will
I will still remember there"

Sometimes is never quite enough
If you're flawless, then you'll win my love
Don't forget to win first place
Don't forget to keep that smile on your face

Be a good boy
Try a little harder
You've got to measure up
And make me prouder

How long before you screw it up
How many times do I have to tell you to hurry up
With everything I do for you
The least you can do is keep quiet

Be a good girl
You've gotta try a little harder
That simply wasn't good enough
To make us proud

I'll live through you
I'll make you what I never was
If you're the best, then maybe so am I
Compared to him compared to her
I'm doing this for your own damn good
You'll make up for what I blew
What's the problem...why are you crying

Be a good boy
Push a little farther now
That wasn't fast enough
To make us happy
We'll love you just the way you are
If you're perfect

("Perfect" by Alanis Morissette
Have a nice day, unless you already have other plans.

Just a perfect day,
Drink Sangria in the park,
And then later, when it gets dark,
We go home.
Just a perfect day,
Feed animals in the zoo
Then later, a movie, too,
And then home.

Oh it's such a perfect day,
I'm glad I spent it with you.
Oh such a perfect day,
You just keep me hanging on,
You just keep me hanging on.

Just a perfect day,
Problems all left alone,
Weekenders on our own.
It's such fun.
Just a perfect day,
You made me forget myself.
I thought I was someone else,
Someone good.

Oh it's such a perfect day,
I'm glad I spent it with you.
Oh such a perfect day,
You just keep me hanging on,
You just keep me hanging on.

You're going to reap just what you sow,
You're going to reap just what you sow,
You're going to reap just what you sow,
You're going to reap just what you sow...

Set me free, why don't you babe
Get out my life, why don't you babe
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on
You don't really need me
But you keep me hangin' on

Why do you keep a coming around
Playing with my heart?
Why don't you get out of my life
And let me make a new start?
Let me get over you
The way you've gotten over me

Set me free, why don't you babe
Let me be, why don't you babe
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on
Now you don't really want me
You just keep me hangin' on

You say although we broke up
You still wanna be just friends
But how can we still be friends
When seeing you only breaks my heart again
And there ain't nothing I can do about it

Woo, set me free, why don't you babe
Woo, get out my life, why don't you babe
Set me free, why don't you babe
Get out my life, why don't you babe

You claim you still care for me
But your heart and soul needs to be free
Now that you've got your freedom
You wanna still hold on to me
You don't want me for yourself
So let me find somebody else Hey!

Why don't you be a man about it
And set me free
Now you don't care a thing about me
You're just using me
Go on, get out, get out of my life
And let me sleep at night
'Cause you don't really love me
You just keep me hangin' on...

You're dangerous 'cause you're honest
You're dangerous, you don't know what you want
Well you left my heart empty as a vacant lot
For any spirit to haunt

Hey hey sha la la
Hey hey

You're an accident waiting to happen
You're a piece of glass left in a beach
Well, you tell me things I know you're not supposed to
Then you leave me just out of reach

Hey hey sha la la
Hey hey sha la la

Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna drown in your blue sea?
Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna fall at the foot of thee?

Well you stole it 'cause I needed the cash
And you killed it 'cause I wanted revenge
Well you lied to me 'cause I asked you to
Baby, can we still be friends?

Hey hey sha la la
Hey hey sha la la

Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna drown in your blue sea?
Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna fall at the foot of thee?

Oh, the deeper I spin
Oh, the hunter will sin for your ivory skin
Took a drive in the dirty rain
To a place where the wind calls your name
Under the trees the river laughing at you and me
Hallelujah, heavens white rose
The doors you open
I just can't close

Don't turn around, don't turn around again
Don't turn around, your gypsy heart
Don't turn around, don't turn around again
Don't turn around, and don't look back
Come on now love, don't you look back!

Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna drown in your blue sea?
Who's gonna taste your salt water kisses?
Who's gonna take the place of me?

Who's gonna ride your wild horses?
Who's gonna tame the heart of thee?

Who's Gonna Ride Your Wild Horses, U2
You're unique, just like everyone else!

Childhood living is easy to do
The things you wanted I bought them for you
Graceless lady you know who I am
You know I can't let you slide through my hands
Wild horses, couldn't drag me away
Wild wild horses couldn't drag me away

I watched you suffer a dull aching pain
Now you decided to show me the same
No sweeping exits or off stage lines
Could make me feel bitter or treat you unkind
Wild horses, couldn't drag me away
Wild wild horses couldn't drag me away

I know I've dreamed you a sin and a lie
I have my freedom but I don't have much time
Faith has been broken tears must be cried
Let's do some living after we die
Wild horses, couldn't drag me away
Wild wild horses we'll ride them someday
Wild horses, couldn't drag me away
Wild wild horses we'll ride them someday

Wild Horses, Rolling Stones

Crud, Momma, that's the song I was gonna post too, and now I can't think of any to link to this one.

Gotta give it some more thought...
Have a nice day, unless you already have other plans.

Saturday morning alone and barely feeling
Sitting at home after rocking and a-reeling
All night in a cat fight
With the only one that can make me cry
Open the blinds and the world is in rotation
Shaking my mind like an Etch a Sketch erasing
Sunshine you were bad I'm
Still mad but I can't remember why

I believe you know me well
I react like you're ringing a bell
Are you sorry that you treat me unkind
Never you mind

Rolling along to the song that aggravates us
Beckoned on by the mirage of an oasis
Hurry, I'm getting blurry
And it's no longer clear in my mind

I believe you know me well
I react like you're ringing a bell
Are you sorry that you treat me unkind
Never you mind

I believe I got you down
You react like anybody else around
Are you sorry that we wasted our time
Never you mind

Sometimes it takes all my time guessing why
I can't figure it out
Sometimes it takes all my energy just to forget about
All the memories that I'd be better off without
I believe you know me well

Switch on the box Mr. Spock is on the table
Dr. McCoy is unable to connect his brain
Sweatin' and strainin'
Well it seemed so simple at the time

I believe I got you down
You react like anybody else around
Are you sorry that we wasted our time
Never you mind

Never You Mind, Semisonic

Obviously, you need to listen to more music from the late 90s, Auntie K. :D

Good Day, Sunshine!
Good Day, Sunshine!
Good Day, Sunshine!
I need to laugh,
And when the sun is out,
I've got something I can laugh about.
I feel good, in a special way.
I'm in love and it's a sunny day.

"Good Day Sunshine." The Beatles.

Don't tell ME what decade of music I need to listen to more of, young Lady! ;-)
Have a nice day, unless you already have other plans.

60s forever!

Sunshine came softly through my window today
Could have tripped out easy, but I've changed my ways
It'll take time, I know it
But in a while
You're gonna be mine, I know it
We'll do it in style
'Cause I made my mind up you're going to be mine

I'll tell you right now, every trick in the book, baby,
That I can find
Everybody's hustling just to have a little scene
When I say you'll be cool, I think that you know what I mean
We stood on the beach at sunset
do you remember when?
I know a beach where baby, it never ends
When you've made your mind up forever to be mine

Superman or Green Lantern ain't got a-nothin' on me
I can make like a turtle and dive for your pearls in the sea, yeah!
A you-you-you can just sit there a-thinking on your velvet throne
'bout all the rainbows a-you can a-have for your own
When you've made your mind up forever to be mine
I'll pick up your hand and slowly blow your little mind
When you've made your mind up forever to be mine

Why are there so many
Songs about rainbows?
And what's on the other side
Rainbows are visions
But only illusions
And rainbows have nothing to hide
So we've been told
And some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong wait and see
Someday we'll find it
The rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

Who said that ev'ry wish
Would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star
Somebody thought of that
And someone believed it
Look what it's done so far
What's so amazing
That keeps us star-gazing?
And what do we think we might see
Someday we'll find it
The rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

Have you been half asleep
And have you heard voices
I've heard them calling my name
Is this the sweet sound
That calls the young sailors
The voice might be one and the same
I've heard it too many times to ignore it
It's something that I'm supposed to be
Someday we'll find it
The rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

Rainbow Connection by Kenny Loggins
On his Return to Pooh Corner CD, a lovely CD full of lullabies. Where is my copy? I need it!

You want to talk about your 60s music?

Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
Everything that's wonderful is what I feel when we're together,
Brighter than a lucky penny,
When you're near the rain cloud disappears, dear,
And I feel so fine just to know that you are mine.

My life is sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
That's how this refrain goes, so come on, join in everybody!

Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows,
Everything that's wonderful is sure to come your way
When you're in love to stay.
