Summer Friday

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Friday, August 03, 2007


Well, we didn't get home until almost 8:30 tonight and then needed to watch "BIG BROTHER" and do some 'domestic chores'...and then realized...DOH...you didn't do a post yet!

We have a slight headache, so we are going simple today...

Summer...beach...romance...it all rolls together when you grow up near the beaches, which we did.

Hot summer nights on the boardwalks...on Long Island they weren't mini-amusement parks...just beautiful boardwalks for miles...

Then we would also go down to the NJ beaches and their boardwalks with the games of chance and the bars....

And we also did it the summer we turned 16 in New Hampshire....

Under the boardwalk, down by the sea, on a blanket with my baby...is where I'll be...





"UNDER THE BOARDWALK"
Composers: Kenny Young and Arthur Resnick

The Drifters
(1964)
US: #4 UK:# 45
Johnny Moore
Charlie Thomas
Gene Pearson
Johnny Terry




Oh, when the sun beats down and burns the tar up on the roof
And your shoes get so hot you wish your tired feet were fire-proof
Under the boardwalk, down by the sea, yeah
On a blanket with my baby is where I'll be

(Under the boardwalk) out of the sun
(Under the boardwalk) we'll be havin' some fun
(Under the boardwalk) people walking above
(Under the boardwalk) we'll be making love
Under the board-walk (board-walk!)

From the park you hear the happy sound of a carousel
Mm-mm, you can almost taste the hot dogs and French fries they sell
Under the boardwalk, down by the sea
On a blanket with my baby is where I'll be

(Under the boardwalk) out of the sun
(Under the boardwalk) we'll be havin' some fun
(Under the boardwalk) people walking above
(Under the boardwalk) we'll be making love
Under the board-walk (board-walk!)

Oooooh, under the boardwalk, down by the sea, yeah
On a blanket with my baby is where I'll be

(Under the boardwalk) out of the sun
(Under the boardwalk) we'll be havin' some fun
(Under the boardwalk) people walking above
(Under the boardwalk) we'll be falling in love
Under the board-walk (board-walk!)

  5. Good morning, my dear friend!
    What a great way to start my day... sitting on the couch, having a coffee, listening to "Under the bordwalk"... singing :"Under the boardwalk, down by the sea, on a blanket with my baby...is where I'll be..." Hope I didn´t wake you up =)

     
  6. Twyla Says:
  7. And here I thought I was the only one who watched Big Brother. Good to know I'm not alone. LOL But I bet you're not as obsessed as I am. I wrote a whole post about it last night.
    As for that song, I remember my friend and I heard that for the first time when we were about 9 or 10 years old, and we always thought it was 'dirty'. LOL I guess I lived a sheltered life back then.

     
  8. sarge and i never miss big brother! we hate them all but just keep watching. i personally hope for a new twist, send them all home and give julie nothing to talk about and send the prize to charity. but still i watch, it's a sickness, i know...
