Wednesday January 10th, 2007: Singing in the Rain-while I work--UPDATED

Singing in the Rain while I work

STOP: When this starts, go back and read the WORDS below, with the music!

Thanks to a reader for REAL link to video!

Oh, I work all alone.
So, when I fire up my laptop
With all my mp3's
I may wind up singing along.

Imagine my surprise
When along came a set of eyes
Saying, "hey, how're you doing?"
Oh, I heard you singing.

Oh what an 80's man.
Listening and Singing (along) to an acapella version of
The B-52's Love-Shack


News flash
We interrupt this poem for a NEW video, the CORRECT one this time!

B52s love shack no autoplay


Or see Here for An alternate, funny "Love shack" video


If you see a painted sign at the side of the road
That says 15 miles to the love shack, yeah yeah ,
love shackkkkk, babbbbyyy.
I'm heading down the Atlanta Highway.

Looking for the love getaway,
Headed for the love getaway.

I got me a Car, it's as big as a whale
And we're headed on down to the love shack.
I Got me a Chrysler, seats about 20
So HURRY UP, and bring your Juke box MONEY

THE LOVE shack is a little old place
where we can get together,

Love Shack, Baby

Love Shack, Baby
Love Shack, Baby
Love Shack, Baby, Love Shack
Love Shack, Baby, Love Shack
Love Shack, Baby, Love Shack

The SIGN Says, "Stay away Fools",
'cause love rules, at the Love Shack

We'll set that out in the middle of a Tin roof rusted.
Just a funky old shack and I gotta get back there
Glitter on a mattress
[G]litter on the Highway ** Litter ....
[G]litter on the Front Porch ** Litter ....
[G]litter on the Highway ** Litter ....

THE LOVE shack is a little old place
where we can get together,

Love Shack, Baby
Love Shack, Baby
Love Shack, Baby
That's where it's at
Love Shack, Baby

Hugging and kissing,
Dancin and a loving
Wearing next to nothin'
because it's hotter than
** Update
Is hard as nothing

The Whole shack shimmies
When everybody's moving
Around and around and
Around and around

Everybody's moving
Everybody's grooving, baby

Folks lining up outside
Just to get down

Everybody's moving
Everybody's grooving, baby

Funky Little shack,
Funky Little shack,

Hop in my Chrysler
It's as big as a whale
And it's about to set sail!

I got me a Car, it seats about 20
So C'mon, and bring your Juke box MONEY

THE LOVE shack is a little old place
where we can get together,

Love Shack, Baby
Love Shack, Baby
Love Shack, Baby
That's where it's at
Love Shack, Baby


Love Shack, Baby, Love Shack
Love Shack, Baby, Love Shack

Bang bang bang, on the door, baby
Bang bang bang, on the door, baby

You're what?

Love Shack, Baby
Love Shack, Baby
Love Shack, Baby
That's where it's at
Love Shack, Baby

And while we're talking about the B-52's
We'll just talk about the song currently playing
"There's a monster in my pants"
Hee Hee, and I quote!!!

(take that you naughty monster!)

You can google the lyrics yourself

Thank you, I was transcribing it as I was singing.

Working Nights (and being bored at 3 in the morning because all your work is done, but you don't have internet access )but DO have 20GB of your (legally) ripped CD collection is a STRANGE experience

Mal:

Yo' What?

the Marching band version suckz but if you send me a reach location (or if I can remember the link, I will post the large A capella version I was listenng to
Or the Billy Joel/B-52 mash-up (Uptown Girl/Love Shack) disco mix I found online yesterday.

It's a shame that we can't put good copies of stuff out there.

PS: Anonomous:
Why don't you surf over to the OTHER poetry blog (of mine) at automatic.poem.machine.blogspot
and request a poem for you!
(just leave a NAME (doesnt have to be yours, could be made up too), a TOPIC, and a FEELING
