“Mama Told me not to Come”

Looking back at Three Dog Night I did not remember they had so many hits I liked listening to. Here’s one for tonight:

Lyrics:

Want some whiskey in your water?
Sugar in your tea?
What’s all these crazy questions they’re askin’ me?
This is the craziest party that could ever be
Don’t turn on the lights ’cause I don’t wanna see

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
“That ain’t the way to have fun, no”

Open up the window, let some air into this room
I think I’m almost chokin’ from the smell of stale perfume
And that cigarette you’re smokin’ ’bout scare me half to death
Open up the window, sucker, let me catch my breath

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
“That ain’t the way to have fun, son”
“That ain’t the way to have fun, son”

The radio is blastin’, someone’s knockin’ at the door
I’m lookin’ at my girlfriend – she’s passed out on the floor
I seen so many things I ain’t never seen before
Don’t know what it is – I don’t wanna see no more

Mama told me not to come
Mama told me not to come
She said, “That ain’t the way to have fun, son”
“That ain’t the way to have fun, no”

“That ain’t the way to have fun, no”
“That ain’t the way to have fun, son”
“That ain’t the way to have fun, no”
“That ain’t the way to have fun, son”

“That ain’t the way to have fun, no”
“That ain’t the way to have fun, son”
“That ain’t the way to have fun, no”
“That ain’t the way to have fun, son”

A Bee’s Life

To coin a phrase, I would say I was smitten

Your fragrance my dear is never quitting

You draw me in but I cannot stay

I have to flit as it’s almost May

More spring flowers I need to visit

But I’ll never forget your scent so vivid.

MLMM Wordle #229

The sunny breach of the grey fog’s grip made walking down the street a stellar experience. I had my favorite cup of Starbucks in one hand and my jacket in the other. I just smiled thinking it was going to be a great day after all, when round the corner a teenager in a bright red dress came running.

She seemed to be fleeing from someone or some thing and bumped straight into me. My coffee, cel phone and her armful of books all went catawampus and we were lucky to only lose our footing.

Apparently a plaintiff of the nearby bookstore thought she had stolen something and was following close behind her waving his fist and making guttural animal noises. As I attempted to help her up, he came at her, grabbing the books that had fallen on the street. He angrily looked them over and not discovering anything that belonged to him, backed up. He sheepishly apologized and went back to his store.

I then started picking up my own things and saw a small book I didn’t recognize. The book had a new price tag attached and was temporarily hidden under my fallen jacket. Immediately I knew this was the book the store owner was looking for and handed it to the girl. She added it to her armful of books and took off running again.

My coffee was spilled, my jacket was stained and the sun went back into the clouds.
