YESTERDAY'S SONGS--TODAY'S VERSION


My friend, Carole, sent me this email & I LOVED it--thank you, Carol!!

Some of the artists of the 60's are revising their hits with new lyrics to accommodate aging baby boomers who can remember doing the "Limbo" as if it were yesterday.






                                                               They include:





Bobby Darin ---


Splish, Splash, I Was Havin' A Flash




Herman's Hermits ---

Mrs. Brown, You've Got a Lovely Walker




Ringo Starr --- 

I Get By With A Little Help From Depends



   

The Bee Gees --- 

How Can You Mend A Broken Hip?




Roberta Flack--- 

The First Time Ever I Forgot Your Face
                                                       


 




Johnny Nash ---

I Can't See Clearly Now


 


Paul Simon---

Fifty Ways To Lose Your Liver



                                                        The Commodores ---

Once, Twice, Three Times To The Bathroom





Procol Harem--- 

A Whiter Shade Of Hair


Leo Sayer --- 

You Make Me Feel Like Napping




                                                         The Temptations --- 

Papa's Got A Kidney Stone




                                                                    Abba---

Denture Queen


 


Tony Orlando --- 

Knock 3 Times On The Ceiling If You Hear Me Fall



Helen Reddy --- 

I Am Woman; Hear Me Snore

 


Leslie Gore---

It's My Procedure, and I'll Cry If I Want To




                                                      And lastbut NOT least: 






Willie Nelson ---
On the Commode Again





Some jokes:

1st man: “My neighbors were screaming and yelling at three o’clock this morning!”
2nd man: “Did they wake you?”
1st man: “Nah….I was up playing my bagpipes.”

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What happens if you play country music backwards?
You get your wife & your job back.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What's the first thing a musician says at work? 
"Would you like fries with that?"
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What do you say to a guitar player in a 3-piece suit ?
"Will the defendant please rise ..."

A quote that I found at amigoingsomeplace.blogspot.com:

I like nonsense, it wakes up the brain cells. Fantasy is a necessary ingredient in living, it’s a way of looking at life through the wrong end of a telescope. Which is what I do, And that enables you to laugh at life's realities----Dr. Seuss (& fishducky)
