vlogdance and I have already experimented with this elsewhere on the forum, so I thought it was time for it to have its own thread.
The idea is to rewrite lyrics from ELO songs to describe events or situations big or small, and post them here.
Here's my first humble contribution: a rewrite of part of "Across the Border" called "On the Sofa"- a tune about what to do when the heat index hits over 100 degrees outside. This is in honor of the recent extended heat wave in these parts!
"On the Sofa"
In the heat of the day, in my town today, When the sun is beating down on all of the streets, I'll be napping on the sofa! I've got to stay cool today!
I've been drivin' and walkin' and doin' my thing, But I'm gonna be chillin' until the day is done. I'm gonna hit the sofa!
I'm gonna take a nap this afternoon. (Woo!) If went out, I would surely pass out soon!
In spite of the difficulties and frustrations of the moment, I still have a dream. --MLK, Jr.
Here's a topical song about the perils of meeting Mr Wimp for a quick drink while he's visiting mainland Europe.
To the tune of "It's Over":
"Come and have a glass," they say, "Horace is on holiday...." I'm hungover Argh, what did I do?
Boozing, "Hé, encore un verre!" Staggered out, fell up the stairs I'm hungover Eurgh, what did I do?
Hungover, hungover, hungover, I'm hungover now And the way he drank - how much did Horace down? We got kicked out at 3 In the morning, eh oui, There was nothing left of the bar Falling down, down (I'm hungover) Falling down, down, down (Hey Horash, letsh phone the Monshter, sing to the Monshter.... Squeeee!)
Lurching over in a daze Searching for my front door keys I'm hungover Ohhhh, what did I do? Horace heads for distant shores Holland won't be safe no more All hungover Wow, what does he do?
You had to experience first hand for once in your life how it is to deal with women, Dude.
Another of those typical situations we guys have to bear is:
He: "Babe, are you OK?" She: "Yes, I'm OK, honey, don't worry" He: "Sure you are OK? " She: "Yes, sure! I'm alright, seriously! " He: "OK"
5 days later...
She: " ...because you don't care when I'm down, you don't even bother to find out!!! Five days ago you could see I was sad and you didn't do anything about it!!!" He: "But I asked you and you told me you were OK!" She: "It doesn't matter what I tell you, you should have found out anyway!"
lasttrain929: Thank you eloneen, until yesterday I had never heard of these insects. They live a strange life. Not sure about Circada ice cream or pizza though, not for me.....

eloneen: Timeblue I hope you enjoy it! It was sunny and in the 90s here most of last week, with some rain. Today it's cloudy and barely making it into the 60s. Crazy NC weather! ::m1809::

orioles70: with warmer (HOT) weather, the cicadas have gotten noisy. A local news reporter used an app on her phone and said it registered in the mid 80s for dbs (hearing protection recommended). They're not quite that bad in my yard.

orioles70: I was driving to the dump today on a road called Beaver Dam Road when what should cross the road but a pair of beaver (mother and child). Guess they named that road well.
