I never really listened to the words

In the New York metro radio area they have a FM station 101.1 that plays all oldies from the 50's to the 90's, It's funny, "that I never really listened to the words" or tried to understand the message. I guess it's kind of like I hear you but not listening.

The same with me Lizard. When I hear songs from my past even though I knew the words back then, I either didn't pay attention or they have new meaning for me now.

Forgot to add that Puff the Magic Dragon still makes me cry.

I just Googled it. Unbelievable. Only part I recognize is the chorus:

CHORUS:

Louie Louie, oh no
Me gotta go
Aye-yi-yi-yi, I said
Louie Louie, oh baby
Me gotta go

Fine little girl waits for me
Catch a ship across the sea
Sail that ship about, all alone
Never know if I make it home

CHORUS

Three nights and days I sail the sea
Think of girl, constantly
On that ship, I dream she's there
I smell the rose in her hair.

CHORUS

Okay, let's give it to 'em, right now!

GUITAR SOLO

See Jamaica, the moon above
It won't be long, me see me love
Take her in my arms again
Tell her I'll never leave again

CHORUS

Let's take it on outa here now
Let's go!!

You are right Trade. I am the biggest wuss ever.

A dragon lives forever, but not so little girls and boys.
Painted wings and giants' rings make way for other toys.

One gray night it happened, Jakie Paper came no more,
And Puff, that mighty dragon, he ceased his fearless roar.

His head was bent in sorrow, green scales fell like rain,
Puff no longer went to play along the cherry lane.

Without his lifelong friend, Puff could not be brave,
So Puff, that mighty dragon, sadly slipped into his cave.

Every Chistmas Eve I try to buy a special book to read that meant something to me as a child to read to JJ. Last Christmas I bought Puff.
When I got to the part that I quoted before I started to cry. My mom said, "Tammy, what are you doing?" I totally ruined the story and the magic for JJ. Thank goodness I have been able to read the story since without crying so JJ could enjoy it.

Yes, I am a wuss indeed.

I took my love, I took it down
Climbed a mountain and I turned around
I saw my reflection in the snow covered hills
till the landslide brought me down

Oh, mirror in the sky
What is love
Can the child within my heart rise above
Can I sail thru the changing ocean tides
Can I handle the seasons of my life

Well, Ive been afraid of changing
cause Ive built my life around you
But time makes you bolder
Children get older
Im getting older too

Oh, take my love, take it down
Climb a mountain and turn around
If you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well the landslide will bring it down

If you see my reflection in the snow covered hills
Well maybe the landslide will bring it down

the "can i handle the seasons of my life" is the line that rips me to shreds.
