I wish I was singing Feelin' Groovy, by Simon and Garfunkel, instead. Go ahead, sing the words. If you want to listen/watch the video, you will need to pause the other music.
Slow down, you move too fast.
You got to make the morning last.
Just kicking down the cobble stones.
Looking for fun and feelin' groovy.
Ba da, Ba da, Ba da, Ba da...Feelin' Groovy.
What cha knowin'?
I've come to watch your flowers growin'.
Ain't cha got no rhymes for me?
Doot-in' doo-doo, Feelin' groovy.
I've got no deeds to do,
No promises to keep.
I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep.
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me.
Life, I love you,
All is groovy.
But I can't. I'm feelin funky. It is taking me a little longer to get back into the swing of the week after winter break than I had hoped. I'm in a bit of a fog and I am eager to get my old self back. I feel better today, so each day does seem to be easier. Hopefully after the weekend and playing catch up, I'll be back to my old self next week.
And Simon and Garfunkel? LOVE them. I grew up with my mom listening to them. Whenver I couldn't sleep, she would play their albums for me. It totally pissed off my brother, because we had one of those 1960's/1970's console stereos. You might remember them - it was a record player and a radio tucked inside of a cabinet with a lid that opened from the top like a toy box. The front of the console was the speakers. It was in our living room. Which meant the entire house had to listen to the music. I don't know why my brother didn't close his bedroom door. Maybe he did and he said he could still hear the music. Too bad for him, she played it anyway. My entire life I have slept better with the radio or TV on. Up until I got married, I slept with the radio on every night. Now, thanks to a snoring husband, I find myself on the couch many nights and what do I do? Sleep with the television on.
The other album I remember her playing for me all the time? Carol King - Tapestry. I now have the CD and my kids love it.
