Ain’t you tired of the Talkies? I prefer the Walkies

Sending this out to my pup Rigby, Riggs, Rigglepigs!

I saw you strolling by your solitary,
Am I nosy? very, very.
I’d like to bet a juicy huckleberry,
What you’re after is a pal
We’re both in luck, for introductions are not necessary

Mm-mm-mm, would you like to take walk?
Mm-mm-mm, do you think it’s gonna rain?
Mm-mm-mm, how about a sasparilla?
Gee, the moon is yeller,
Sump’n good’ll come from that.

Mm-mm-mm, have you heard the latest song?
Mm-mm-mm, it’s a very pretty strain.
Mm-mm-mm, don’t you feel a little thrilly?
Gee, it’s getting chilly,
Sump’n good’ll come from that.

When you’re strolling though the wherezis,
You need a whozis
To lean upon;
But when you have no whozis,
To hug and whatzis, gosh darn.

Mm-mm-mm, would you like to take walk?
Mm-mm-mm, do you think it’s gonna rain?
Mm-mm-mm, ain’t you tired of the talkies?
I prefer the walkies,
Sump’n good’ll come from that.

When you’re strolling though the wherezis,
You need a whozis
To lean upon;
But when you have no whozis,
To hug and whatzis, gosh darn.

Boys watching girls watching boys watching girls

The boys watch the girls
while the girls watch the boys
who watch the girls go by

Eye to eye, they solemnly convene to make the scene

Which is the name of the game,
watch a guy watch a dame on any street in town

Up and down and over and across, romance is boss

Guys talk “girl talk”, it happens everywhere
Eyes watch girls walk with tender lovin’ care

It’s keepin’ track of the fact watching them watching back
That makes the world go ’round
“What’s that sound?” each time you hear a loud collective sigh
They’re making music to watch girls by

Guys talk “girl talk”, it happens everywhere
Eyes watch girls walk with tender lovin’ care

It’s keepin’ track of the fact watching them watching back
That makes the world go ’round
“What’s that sound?” each time you hear a loud collective sigh
They’re making music to watch girls by

The boys watch the girls while the girls watch the boys who watch the girls go by
Eye to eye, they solemnly convene to make the scene

Modbetty’s dreams of a fun filled retro roadtrip style summer!

Here’s some cool stuff I’m looking forward to this summer:

* We just found out that Cliff and the Forward Thinkers will be playing in New York City on MY BIRTHDAY! Friday August 7 at the Lakeside Lounge. This should be a lot of fun, so if you’re in the area mark your calendar, or plan the visit now!

* My website www.retroroadmap.com is a lot of fun, and making me itchy for a roadtrip instead of sitting in my cube at work. If anyone has places to recommend/photos etc, please send them, so I can share them with the world, and myself. The latest entries on the site are from my pal Suzanne, and everyone is welcome to join in the fun!

* Speaking of roadtrips, I am trying to get Cliff to take a day off so we can roadtrip out to just north of Pittsburgh in August, where he’s going to be working a Patty Smyth &  Scandal show. Anyone have any roadmap worthy places for us to check out? I think there are some drive in movie theatres still around the burg, but welcome all tips!

* I’m having a big retro/vintage stuff sale on Saturday July 11, coinciding with Blobfest here in Phoenixville PA. I’ve got the thrifting bug but I don’t really need all the stuff I’ve collected so I’m sharing my finds. If you are looking for something let me know and I’ll check the basement, and if you’re in town for Blobfest, swing by the hacienda and say hello!

Other than that I’m eying the calendar at work hoping to take some time off during the summer, does anyone have any fun vacation plans?
