first song on the radio this morning*

Billy-Ray was a preacher's son
And when his daddy would visit he'd come along
When they gathered round and started talkin'
That's when Billy would take me walkin'
A-through the back yard we'd go walkin'
Then he'd look into my eyes
Lord knows to my surprise
The only one who could ever reach me
Was the son of a preacher man
The only boy who could ever teach me
Was the son of a preacher man
Yes he was, he was, mmm, yes he was

Being good isn't always easy
No matter how hard I try
When he started sweet-talkin' to me
He'd come and tell me everything is all right
He'd kiss and tell me everything is all right
Can I get away again tonight?
.
The only one who could ever reach me
Was the son of a preacher man
The only boy who could ever teach me
Was the son of a preacher man
Yes he was, he was, Lord knows he was
.
How well I remember
The look that was in his eyes
Stealin' kisses from me on the sly
Takin' time to make time
Tellin' me that he's all mine
Learnin' from each other's knowing'
Lookin' to see how much we've grown

And the only one who could ever reach me
Was the son of a preacher man
The only boy who could ever teach me
Was the son of a preacher man
Yes he was, he was, oh, yes he was
He was the sweet-talking son of a preacher man
I guessed he was the son of a preacher man
Sweet-lovin' son of a preacher man
Ahh, move me

and it makes me think of this guy:

and the funniest thing about that was that I googled "John Travolta Michael" on Google Images. . .
.

and the FIRST PICTURE I SAW led me to ending up (without initally realising it. . .) on dave's birthday blog. . .
.

HA HA HA HA HA
HA HA HA HA HA
.

I think that's made
my day/week/month/year
..

*yes, I turned it on for the second time only. . . life is amazing, huh

Good morning to you too.

I, still, ♥ the views said...

please note that the ticker on your birthday blog has almost reached one thousand. . . and when it does will re-set to zero (I just want you to know how popular you are - soon to be into a millenium all of your own!)

And only six months to go until the next one!

Mind you, someone else has a birthday before then. I do hope she doesn't think I've got the energy at the moment to build an edifice as magnificent.

Dave said...

Apart from anything else, I shall be in the Orkneys on her birthday, and internetless.

I, still, ♥ the views said...

new habit maybe, but I do prefer the songs that just arrive in my head for no reason

Mel said...

I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts
There they are a'standing in a row
Big ones, small ones, some as big as your head!
Give 'em a twist, a flick of the wrist
That's what the showman said

I've got a lovely bunch of coconuts
Every ball you throw will make me rich
There stands me wife, the idol of me life
Singing roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch

Singing roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch
Roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch
Roll a bowl a ball, roll a bowl a ball
Singing roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch

........lalalalala.......

Monty Python.......oh c'mon.....

Mel said...

Roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch.

Roll a bowl a ball....
Roll a bowl a ball a penny a pitch!

That's some kind of synchronicity!

(Aaw Mel. My Mum used to sing that - with gusto and causing offence to the stuffier members of the family :)

Mel said...

LOL Go figure I'd choose a song that's offensive to some.

*snickering*
