Why Can't I Stay on Vacation?

Well, I'm back from the World of Mouse, and I had a great time. The weather was into the triple digits, so we were LITERALLY standing in our own sweat. Nice eh? I figure, if I had watched what I ate and drank, between all the walking I did and the sweating, I would have lost ten pounds. DAMN. Oh well, too late.

I am actually creatively stagnant right now (if there is such a phrase), and I really can't find the words to put down on the page, so to speak.

So, instead of my wonderful prose, I will, once more, post a great tune and set of lyrics from my personal collection. Let's see....I would give you some Elvis, in honor of the 30th Anniversary of his passing, but I don't have any in my account. Plus, thinking of the King makes me sad, because it reminds me of my dear friend, Ruth, whom I miss greatly. And her birthday is coming up, and I cry way too much these days.

Hmmm *scanning through lifelogger to see what's available* AH! Here we go. Some good old Canadian content.

Ladies and gentlemen (and I use those terms loosely :P), I give you - THE GUESS WHO!!!



THESE EYES

These eyes cry every night for you.
These arms long to hold you again.
The hurtin’s on me yeah,
But I will never be free no my baby, no no.
You gave a promise to me yeah and you broke it, you broke it. Oh, no.

These eyes watched you bring my world to an end.
This heart could not accept and pretend.
The hurtin’s on me yeah,
But I will never be free no no no.
You took the vow with me yeah.
You spoke it, you spoke it, babe.

These eyes are cryin’
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But they’re never gonna see another one like I had with you.
These eyes are cryin’
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But they’re never gonna see another one like I had with you.

These eyes are cryin’
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But they’re never gonna see another one like I had with you.

These eyes cry every night for you.
These arms, these arms long to hold you, hold you again.
These eyes are cryin’
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But they’re never gonna see another one like I had with you.
These eyes are cryin’
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But they’re never gonna see another one like I had with you.
These eyes are cryin’
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But they’re never gonna see another one like I had with you.
These eyes are cryin’
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But they’re never gonna see another one like I had with you.
Baby, baby, baby, baby.

DISNEYWORLD! My absolute favorite place on earth! We're going again this June...and we've been suffering with temps in the 100s for going on two weeks now. Tempers are flaring...

Anndi said...

I can't the song to play!!! WAHHHHHHHHHH!

Burton's voice.. oh my!

Glad you had a good time at the House of Mouse!

Glad you enjoyed your vay-cay! Wow, temps in the 100s! I've never experienced heat like THAT before! The temp here rarely rises above 90 in the summer! This year, we've barely been getting 80! Sheesh.

FYI: the highest temperature ever recorded on the island was 98.06 in Botwood, northeast of Grand Falls, on August 22, 1976.

Oh, my god. Look I am blog-hopping before back to school night and I find...one of my fave songs ever. I am a lyric whore. I love the Guess Who. And Burton Cummings. Mmm. Did you ever see that movie he was in with Don Johnson? I'm talking 1980-something. And he played a piano player? Blah, blah, blah. Anyway! Hi! love this song. Just had to say that.

((smut has clearly fried my brain ;))

Ahh...I remember this song. It's a tune I can't get out of my head when I hear it. Sounds like you had an interesting vacation.
Stay cool!

Well....you're already cool! But you knew that.
