Two Songs


Ever get songs stuck in your head?
 
I have two right at the moment.
 
When things go a little haywire at the shop
or at home 
we have been saying,
"How Bizarre!"
Like while cleaning up the basement,
inside a porcelain bedpan
I find
these little dogs.
How bizarre?
 
Two packages in the mail a couple of days ago.
One,
giant pumpkin seeds
and the other,
Himalayan Pink Salt.
How Bizarre?
 
And then I heard it....
 


The song,
on the radio,
and I can't get it out of my head.
 
 
Brother Pele's in the back, sweet Seena's in the front
Cruising down the freeway in the hot, hot sun
Suddenly red-blue lights flash us from behind
Loud voice, "All move, please step out onto the line"
Pele breathes words of comfort
Seena just hides her eyes
Policeman taps his shades
"Is that a Chevy 69?"
How bizarre
How bizarre, how bizarre
Destination unknown, as we pull in for some gas
A freshly pasted poster reveals a smile from the pack
Elephants and acrobats, lions, next monkey
Pele speaks righteous, sister Seena says "Funky"
How bizarre
How bizarre, how bizarre
Ooh baby
(Ooh baby)
It's making me crazy
(It's making me crazy)
Every time I look around
(Look around)
Every time I look around
(Every time I look around)
Every time I look around, it's in my face
Ringmaster steps up, says, "The elephants left town"
People jump and jive and the clowns then stuck around
T.V. news and cameras, there's choppers in the sky
Marines, police, reporters, ask where, for, and why
Pele yells, "We're outta here," Seena says, "Right on"
Make your moves and starting grooves before they knew we were gone
Jumped into the Chevy, headed for big lights
Wanna know the rest? Hey, buy the rights
How bizarre
How bizarre, how bizarre
Ooh baby
(Ooh baby)
It's making me crazy
(It's making me crazy)
Every time I look around
(Look around)
Every time I look around
(Every time I look around)
Every time I look around, it's in my face
It's in my face
Ooh baby
(Ooh baby)
It's making me crazy
(It's making me crazy)
Every time I look around
(Look around)
Every time I look around
(Every time I look around)
Every time I look around, it's in my face
Ooh baby
(Ooh baby)
It's making me crazy
(It's making me crazy)
Every time I look around
(Look around)
Every time I look around
(Look around)
Every time I look around, it's in my face

And the other one?
 
Get ready....it's a bit of a tearjerker.
 
Let Them Be Little

Kendall started Preschool yesterday.
 
and I keep hearing.
 

Let Them Be Little 

 
I can remember when you fit in the palm of my hand
Felt so good in it, no bigger than a minute
And how it amazes me, you're changin' with every blink
Faster than a flower blooms they grow up all too soon
So let them be little 'cause they're only that way for a while
Give them hope, give them praise, give them love every day
Let them cry, let them giggle, let them sleep in the middle
Oh, just let them be little
I've never felt so much in one little tender touch
I live for those kisses, prayers and your wishes
And now that you're teachin' me things only a child can see
Every night while we're on our knees all I ask is please
Let them be little 'cause they're only that way for a while
Give them hope, give them praise, give them love every day
Let them cry, let them giggle, let them sleep in the middle
Oh, just let them be little
So innocent, a precious soul, you turn around
It's time to let them go
So let them be little 'cause they're only that way for a while
Give them hope, give them praise, give them love every day
Let them cry, let them giggle, let them sleep in the middle
Oh, just let them be little
Let them be little
