Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep – Middle of the Road

I first heard this song at Maureen’s birthday party a couple of weeks ago. It was actually the last song played at her party. At first, I was not sure as it was the first time I’ve heard it. But it was that kind of song that gets into your brain whether you want to or not.

So before I knew it, I was humming it like mad. Thank goodness my husband knew the song and helped me look for it in youtube.

And here it is.

Happy Friday, People!!!

Chirpy Chirpy Cheep Cheep

Where’s your mama gone?
(Where’s your mama gone?)
Little baby, Don
(Little baby, Don)

Where’s your mama gone?
(Where’s your mama gone?)
Far, far away

Where’s your papa gone?
(Where’s your papa gone?)
Little baby, Don
(Little baby, Don)

Where’s your papa gone?
(Where’s your papa gone?)
Far, far away, far, far away

Last night I heard my mama singing a song
Ooh we, chirpy, chirpy, cheep, cheep
Woke up this morning and my mama was gone
Ooh we, chirpy, chirpy, cheep, cheep
Chirpy, chirpy, cheep, cheep, chirp

Where’s your mama gone?
(Where’s your mama gone?)
Little baby, Don
(Little baby, Don)

Where’s your mama gone?
(Where’s your mama gone?)
Far, far away

Where’s your papa gone?
(Where’s your papa gone?)
Little baby, Don
(Little baby, Don)

Where’s your papa gone?
(Where’s your papa gone?)
Far, far away, far, far away

Last night I heard my mama singing a song
Ooh we, chirpy, chirpy, cheep, cheep
Woke up this morning and my mama was gone
Ooh we, chirpy, chirpy, cheep, cheep
Chirpy, chirpy, cheep, cheep, chirp

(Let’s go now)
Last night I heard my mama singing a song
Ooh we, chirpy, chirpy, cheep, cheep
Woke up this morning and my mama was gone
Ooh we, chirpy, chirpy, cheep, cheep
Chirpy, chirpy, cheep, cheep, chirp

(Altogether now)

This Guy is In love with you – Herb Alpert

herbThis song is so romantic, a classic love song. It doesn’t age, it is as tinglingly romantic and passionate as the time it first came out to blow the romantics at heart.

This is certainly today’s LOVE SONG pick!

Enjoy!

HERB ALPERT

“This Guy’s In Love With You”
(Hal David/Burt Bacharach)

You see this guy, this guy’s in love with you
Yes I’m in love who looks at you the way I do
When you smile I can tell it know each other very well
How can I show you I’m glad I got to know you ’cause
I’ve heard some talk they say you think I’m fine
This guy’s in love and what I’d do to make you mine
Tell me now is it so don’t let me be the last to know
My hands are shakin’ don’t let my heart keep breaking ’cause
I need your love, I want your love
Say you’re in love and you’ll be my guy, if not I’ll just die
Tell me now is it so don’t let me be the last to know
My hands are shakin’ don’t let my heart keep breaking ’cause
I need your love, I want your love
Say you’re in love and you’ll be my girl, if not I’ll just die

Please, Please Me – Matt Dusk Version

mattAlthough I love The Beatles’s original version, I love this cover better by Matt Dusk. It is jazzier  and slower in tempo; more easy listening.

Really romantic to play after a hard day’s work (another Beatles song?), just kick off your shoes and cuddle up in the settee with a nice glass of wine wine with your love one.

By the way, Matt Dusk is also Canadian just like Michael Buble and awww, Justin Bieber 😉

 

 

Pachelbel’s Canon in D–Soothing music

Classical Music

If you have a little bit of Monday blues, why not dim the lights, put your feet up and then let the beautiful sound of Pachelbel’s Canon in D minor soothe your stress away.

This is so beautiful and uplifting that it is a popular choice as a variation to the standard wedding march.

Pachelbel’s Canon in D–Soothing music

Let the beautiful sound engulf you as you feel the stress and concern leave your body.

Or let this music make your arms sway with the sound as it glides to your ironing board.  It makes ironing starched shirt’s collars and cuffs bearable. 😉

Je l’aime à mourir (I love her to death)

This song sounds so romantic. French is I think the language of the heart. The song does sound so deeply heartfelt, though I don’t really understand a word. For us who are unlucky enough not to speak the beautiful French language, an English translation follows down below.

It is Friday night, grab the otherhalf and dance to this for a romantic evening.

Enjoy!

Je l’aime à mourir

Moi je n’étais rien
Mais voilà qu’aujourd’hui
Je suis le gardien
Du sommeil de ses nuits
Je l’aime à mourir

Vous pouvez détruire
Tout ce qu’il vous plaira
Elle n’aura qu’à ouvrir
L’espace de ses bras
Pour tout reconstruire
Pour tout reconstruire

Je l’aime à mourir

Elle a gommé les chiffres
Des horloges du quartier
Elle a fait de ma vie
Des cocottes en papier
Des éclats de rires

Elle a bâti des ponts
Entre nous et le ciel
Et nous les traversons
A chaque fois qu’elle
Ne veut pas dormir
Ne veut pas dormir

Je l’aime à mourir

Elle a dû faire toutes les guerres
Pour être si forte aujourd’hui
Elle a dû faire toutes les guerres
De la vie, et l’amour aussi

Elle vit de son mieux
Son rêve d’opaline
Elle danse au milieu
des forêts qu’elle dessine

Je l’aime à mourir

Elle porte des rubans
qu’elle laisse s’envoler
Elle me chante souvent
que j’ai tort d’essayer
De les retenir
De les retenir

Je l’aime à mourir

Pour monter dans sa grotte
Cachée sous les toits
Je dois clouer des notes
A mes sabots de bois

Je l’aime à mourir

Je dois juste m’asseoir
Je ne dois pas parler
Je ne dois rien vouloir
Je dois juste essayer
De lui appartenir
De lui appartenir

Je l’aime à mourir

I Love her to Death

Me I was nothing
But today
I am the keeper
Of her nights’ sleep
I love her to death

You can destroy
Anything you’d like
She will only need to open
Her arms
To rebuild everything
To rebuild everything

I love her to death

She erased the numbers
From the area’s clocks
She transformed my life into
Paper hens
Bursts of laughter

She built bridges
Between us and the sky
And we cross them
Everytime she
Doesn’t want to sleep
Doesn’t want to sleep

I love her to death

She must have been part of every war
To be so strong today
She must have been part of every war
Life’s and love’s also

She lives as well as she can
Her opalin dream
She dances in the middle
Of the forests she draws

I love her to death

She wears ribbons
That she let’s fly away
She often sings to me
That I am wrong to try
To hold them back
To hold them back

I love her to death

To come up to her cave
Hidden beneath the roofs
I have to nail notes
To my wooden clogs

I love her to death

I must only sit
I must not talk
I must not want anything
I must only try
To belong to her
To belong to her

I love her to death
