wake up

i want to wake bean up this week by singing her the following:


begin the day with a friendly voice
a companion unobtrusive
plays that song that's so elusive,
and the magic music makes your morning move!



if i sing that to her in a loud voice at 6:10 am, how far do you think i'll get before she yells at me?

john is applauding your homage to rush...

we've gone a little rush crazy this weekend, for some reason... my brother used to be a FANATIC in high school, and he played lots of rush on his guitar. i think this song is so funny when you imagine your mom singing it to you to wake you up!

as long as you don't touch her hair!!

this makes me wonder if adam still has an electric guitar?? when i think of rush, i think of loud twangs in a small ranch house (fondly) ! i think if you're going to wake someone up with them, you'd better get those licks down first....

omigod, The Spirit of Radio! Does he say "move" or "mood"? whatever the case, I'd much rather wake up to that than "Tom Sawyer."

lizzie lou said...

you may be right, it may be "mood." i like "move" better, cause i imagine her being physically able to get her body out of bed after hearing such an uplifting song!

and, mom, now i'm imagining myself with an electric guitar at bean's bedside... better start practicing those licks!

I think that was Adam's favorite song to wake up to in high school. Try it! It definitely gets you out of bed!! Better than my mom's chant of, 'It is time, it is time, it is TIME TIME TIME!!!'

Adam said...

Yeah, I used to wake up to that song every day!

I think it's "mood."

aw, shoot. i like "move." but "mood" is good, too!
