* Musical Three Things Thursday

Thanks to Nerd in the Brain for her challenge to stop and smell the nerdy good things of the week.  I’m feeling musical, despite my inability to carry a tune, so please sing along and no one will notice I’m off-key.

#1:  “The Green, Green Grass of Home” by Tom Jones seems apt as the deer-bitten grasses make a comeback at the front of our house.  They stink from deer repellent, but still.

The old home town looks the same as I step down from the train,
and there to meet me is my Mama and Papa.
Down the road I look and there runs Mary, hair of gold and lips like cherries.
It’s good to touch the green, green grass of home.

#2:  “If I Only Had a Brain” from the Wizard of Oz fits in nicely with my visit to the neurologist yesterday.  I have a brain!  And I didn’t have to count back from 100 by 7’s in order to prove it.

I could while away the hours
Conferrin’ with the flowers
Consultin’ with the rain

And my head, I’d be scratchin’
While my thoughts were busy hatchin’
If I only had a brain.

#3:  “You’re the One That I Want” by Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta is what I’m lip-syncing to my unhealthy dearest widower.  I don’t want to lose him so I need him to SHAPE UP and keep track of calories on the FitBit I bought him.  Seriously.

You better shape up, ’cause I need a man
And my heart is set on you
You better shape up, you better understand
To my heart I must be true
Nothing left, nothing left for me to do

You’re the one that I want
You are the one I want
Oo, Oo, Oo honey

You’re the one that I want!
