Get outta my head!

I've mentioned to N@ on a few occasions, that I have a habit of waking in the morning with obscure music in my head. Generally the way to rid myself of those songs is have her play them on the Nooner... but that doesn't always work, because:

a) it's not from the 80's or 90's
b) They don't have that song
or
c) They already played that song this week

Well this time it's definitely an a-thing.

I woke up YESTERDAY singing the theme song to Green Acres... and since I've not been able to pass this one off on N@ and the Nooner... here I am more than 24 hours later and I'm STILL singing (in my head) Green Acres...

---

Green acres is the place for me.
Farm livin' is the life for me.
Land spreadin' out so far and wide
Keep Manhattan, just give me that countryside.

New York is where I'd rather stay.
I get allergic smelling hay.
I just adore a penthouse view.
Dah-ling I love you but give me Park Avenue.

...The chores.
...The stores.
...Fresh air.
...Times Square .

You are my wife.
Good bye, city life.
Green Acres we are there.

Dear god... kill me now...

Thanks a lot, KITTY! Now it's lodged between my two brain cells.

So I'll fight back with the Flintstones theme -- you know the words, gay old time and all...

Misster Kitty said...

It's my pleasure. and thanks for taking it away from me...

Flintstones?! never heard of it. ;-)

Luckily, I don't know the theme to Green Acres so it cannot become lodged in my brain.

I'm listening to "Gypsy Woman" by Crystal Waters right now (not by choice) and that's likely to be there for a while. Perhaps you can sing along with me.

"She gets up early every mornin' just to do her hair now. Because she cares now.
Her day just wouldn't be right,
without her make-up, she's gotta have her make-up.
She's just like you and me, but she's homeless, she's homeless.
And as she stands there, singin' for money...
La da dee.. Lau dow. La da dee Lau dow."

Well, now with both NGB and John I am Green Acres Free...

John said...

Who could forget Arnold Ziffle?

...and go here to listen (if you have the proper player):

Now, while you're trying to get crap like that out of your head, try this one...

Just sit right back and you'll hear a tale
A tale of a fateful trip
That started from this tropic port
Aboard this tiny ship

The mate was a mighty sailing man
The skipper brave and sure
Five passengers set sail that day
For a three hour tour - a three hour tour

The weather started getting rough
The tiny ship was tossed
If not for the courage of the fearless crew
The Minnow would be lost, The Minnow would be lost.

The ship set ground on the shore of this uncharted desert isle
With Gilligan
The Skipper too
The millionaire and his wife
The movie star
The professor and Mary Ann
Here on Gilligans Isle

So this is the tale of our castways
They're here for a long, long time
They'll have to make the best of things
It's an uphill climb

The first mate and the Skipper too
Will do their very best
To make the others comfortable
In the tropic island nest

No phone - no lights - no motor cars
Not a single luxury
Like Robinson Crusoe
As primative as can be

So join us here each week my friends
You're sure to get a smile
From seven stranded castways
Here on Gilligan's Isle!

Misster Kitty said...

You're all too kind.
REALLY.
I don't recall ASKING for replacement songs, to get stuck in my head. But I do appreciate your offer...

Also it's nice to see that I'm not only one that suffers from Songintheheaditis... I know where mine comes from... I blame the voices, or rather daemons in my head.

Newsguy Bob said...

Funny you bring up the Gilligan's Island theme. When I was in Mexico, the scuba diving kiosk next to the pool had a sign advertising a scuba excursion: A THREE-HOUR TOUR.

Maria said...

does the 3 hour tour song go something like this:


















Just kidding.

Have a great weekend y'all

Newsguy Bob said...

Come and knock on our door,
We've been waiting for you,
We've a lovable space that needs your face,
Three's company too..

Newsguy Bob said...

Here's a story
Of a lovely lady
Who was busy bringing up three lovely girls...

TICKLEBEAR said...

with all of this reminiscing, "cheers" popped up in my head...
"where eveybody knows your name..."
i don't know if it's all of the drinking i did this week, that "cheers" would come to mind...
i guess there are worst things in life, & i'm off to bed anyway, so...
but next time kitty, just go on youtube, surely they have the green acres, & all things alike...
you'll get a giggle & forget about it.

Newsguy Bob said...

Come and listen to a story about a man named Jed,
Poor mountaineer barely kept his family fed...

Newsguy Bob said...

Schlemiel! Schmozzle! Haasen pfeffer incorporated! We're gonna make it...

Misster Kitty said...

Raise your hand if you think NGB is obsessing...

heh!

I watched Square Pegs on Saturday...

Square pegs, square pegs.
Square, square pegs.
Always never quite right.
I’d like it if they liked us, but I don’t think they like us.
So tell me where’s the party, and how come we weren’t invited?
One size does not fit all.

Newsguy Bob said...

Obsessing? Moi?

Travelling along there's a song that we're singing,
C'mon get happy!...

Misster Kitty said...

If there's Tequilla while we're traveling... I'll be happy.

Tequila makes my clothes come off .
