Take Off Your Shoes and Socks, and Run You




Love You by The Free Design

LYRICS...

Give a little time for the child within you,
dont be afraid to be young and free.
Undo the locks and throw away the keys
and take off your shoes and socks, and run you.
La, la, la...

Give a little time for the child within you,
dont be afraid to be young and free.
Undo the locks and throw away the keys
and take off your shoes and socks, and run you.
La, la, la...

Run through the meadow and scare up the milking cows
Run down the beach kicking clouds of sand
Walk a windy weather day, feel your face blow away
Stop and listen: Love you.

Roll like a circus clown, put away your circus frown
Ride on a roller coaster upside down
Waltzing Matilda, Carey loves a kinkatchoo
Joey catch a kangaroo, hug you.

Dandylion, milkweed, silky on a sunny sky
Reach out and hitch a ride and float on by
Balloons down below catching colors of the rainbow
red, blue and yellow-green: I love you.

Bicycles, tricycles, ice cream candy
Lollypops, popsicles, licorice sticks
Solomon Grundy, Raggedy Andy
Tweedledum and Tweedledee, home free.

Cowboys and Indians, puppydogs and sandpails
Beachballs and baseballs and basketballs, too.
I love forget-me-nots, fluffernutters, sugarpops
Ill hug you and kiss you and love you
La, la, la... Love you.

We had a glorious Oregon spring day here in the Rogue Valley. After returning from the library where I dismantled my bookmark display and raided the DVD shelf, I sat on the porch reading for about an hour before dinner and another hour after finishing the dishes--for the first time since October.

I was planning to save the vid heading this post for next Sunday's Sunday Serenity post but it just seemed fitting. Especially since I discovered it overnight and it set the tone for my day even before the sun rose. The song was on the closing titles track for the movie Stranger than Fiction which I watched in the wee hours. That was an unexpectedly good story and movie. I even watched the last twenty minutes a second time and all of the extras on the disc. The theme is of storytelling itself among other things.

I was so taken with this song when it played, I backtracked to find the credits for it and went straight to YouTube to look for it. I had never heard of The Free Design before and there are more intriguing songs from them represented on YouTube which you can find in the related list.

So I returned the BBC series To the Manor Born plus two movies today which left me with season one of BBC's Black Books and the movie Hounddog at home for a couple more days. And we brought home between us five more DVD, one of which has two 90 minute movies on it. I'm on a movie/TV show binge. I'll talk more about what I brought home as I watch them. Right now I want to get back to the novel I'm reading for a bit. Until my eyes tire. And then watch another movie. Probably Hounddog starring Dakota Fanning as it may have to go back Thursday.
