Song Lyric Sunday: Come On

This  weeks   Song Lyric  Sunday , inspired  by Helen Espinosa  at  This thing  called  life one word at a  time    is  Come on  by  The Rolling Stones.
Pingback rules there also.

This  was  the very first  record I bought  with my own money. ( and I do  mean record  it was a 45″ vinyl ) in June  1963. I was  about  10yrs  old  and  I had  saved  up  for  months. I  think, no  I  am sure it  was  6 shillings and 9pennies  in old  money which is circa  34pence in today’s  money .

The  shop I  bought  it  from was an old  corner shop halfway between  my  home and my  school…… well it  was if  you took a slight detour!  I went in every  day  to see if  he had  the record  in for a fortnight  and  then when it was in  I went in three days  running  to make sure he was saving me a copy because I  could not  buy it until I had  that week’s pocket  money. He  must  of  got really  fed up  with me.

Anyway  when I  did  finally  g0t  my  hands  on my copy  of  Come On  I  rushed  home  to play it  on  our old Dansette  record player  ( well my  sister’s  and brother’s  had  been using it  to  death  before  me). I played it  and played  it  on repeat   until Mum  and  Dad   asked  me to  STOP!

So  here it is  my  first  ever record purchase Come On by  The Rolling  Stone’s , written  by Chuck Berry.


“Come On”
(originally by Chuck Berry)

Everything is wrong since me and my baby parted
All day long I’m walkin’ ’cause I couldn’t get my car started
Laid off from my job and I can’t afford to check it
I wish somebody’d come along and run into it and wreck itCome on, since me and my baby parted
Come on, I can’t get started
Come on, I can’t afford to check
I wish somebody’d come along and run into it and wreck it

Everything is wrong since I’ve been without you
Ev’ry night I lay awake thinkin’ about you
Ev’ry time the phone rings it sounds like thunder
Some stupid guy try’n’ to reach another number

Come on, since I’ve been without you
Come on, always thinkin’ about you
Come on, phone sounds like thunder
Some stupid guy try’n’ to reach another number

Everything is wrong since I last saw you, baby
I really wanna see you and I don’t mean maybe
I’m doin’ ev’rything try’n’ to make you see
That I belong to you, hon, and you belong to me

Come on, I wanna see you, baby
Come on, I don’t mean maybe
Come on, I’m try’n’ to make you see
That I belong to you and you belong to me

Come on, I gotta see you, baby
Come on, I don’t mean maybe
Come on, I’ve gotta make you see
That I belong to you and you belong to me

Come on, come on, come on, come on

If we were having coffee:Deaths, classes visits


If we were having Coffee: I would  remind  you  that  there  are lots of  other  coffee mornings  all shared  and organized  By  Diana  and  Gene’O  over at,Part time monster


Do join in

Come on  in  it is nice  to  sit  and  have a  chat  after  all  the  hustle  and  bustle  of  the past  few days.   I  can  still entertain  you  all  with tea  and coffee  from all over  the world not to mention all our cakes  and muffins  and  as Paul  calls  them sweets! Every single  one  is  calorie  free! Plus of course  we now have spirits  and liquors  to warm the coldest of  you.

If we  were having  coffee : I would  have  to  say  what  a sad  week  this has been  in the  music  and  entertaining  world . Both David Bowie  and Alan Rickman  dying  of cancer  at  the  age of  69yrs with  just a  few  days between  them.

David Bowie  was a huge influence  and icon  to  me in my  youth  and  still was up until his death. His music, clothes, lyrics are  what have coloured  many  decades of  my life. Enough  has been  said  about  him  to  fill several books  so I  shall let his  music  speak  for him!



He was my hero.

Alan Rickman  a  wonderful   actor  who  went  from  stage  to  screen, Shakespeare to  the  silver screen with ease. Truly,deeply, madly, Die Hard, Harry Potter, Robin Hood Prince of Thieves  to name but  a few!

Truly  he  was  a lovely  man.

If we  were  having  coffee :   I would  offer  you  another  cuppa  or  a  treat  of  some kind  would  you  like  something  stronger  maybe  it  is  very  cold here  today we  even  woke up  to  snow and  the  temperature  is   a very  chilly  2c/ 36 F so  come on  lets  get  nearer  the fire.

What  have  you  been up  to  this  week .  I have  been very  busy  shopping and housework. I have been  to  the new  class of  Pilates  again  and  this  week  my  friend  L  came  with  me  she  found it  very  hard  but  also  excellent   so we  shall both  be  doing  the  course  together. As for  my  core  class on Saturday  …my  that  is  so hard . I think  the two months  plus I was  away  from the gym is taking it’s toll. I am hoping  for improvement  soon!


If we were having coffee: Sadly  I  still have  not  got  to see Star Wars yet! I don’t  think  there is  much  chance  of  me seeing it  this week either. Monday  the  men are coming  to  refit one of  our kitchen worktops (  they have  made  a  holy  mess of  the  long run under  the window  and  put  an abysmal joint  by  the sink! Right in  eye line as  you  enter  the kitchen). Also  I have  a scan  at  11am and  so  the  hubby  will have  to  stay home  and  make  sure  all goes  well in  the kitchen. In the  afternoon  hubby  has  to take his  mother  for  a hospital  appointment so I  shall be on  workman supervision  if they  have not finished  the task!  Tuesday is  a possible  but  Wednesday  is Pilates  in  the morning  and  we have  a funeral  to  attend  in the  afternoon. Thursday  we have  an upholsterer   coming  to fix  one  of our  sofas.  I am annoyed  about  this  as we have not had  these  a year  yet  and  the stitching  is  coming apart  on a part of  the sofa  we hardly  ever sit on!! Friday  though I  am looking forward  to as  hubby  and I  are  going  for a  tour of  Parliament  !! WOOHOO ! a  day  in London.

So Star Wars   has  to wait and  goodness only  knows when I  shall get  to  see  The  Danish Woman!

If we were having  coffee:   I would  ask  you  how  your  blogging has been  this  week I  have  been very  busy  as it  is  still January and January means  Just Jot It January. This is  run  by  LindaGHill  it  is  hard  but I  do  enjoy  a challenge!


Never too late  to join in  here 

If we  were  having  Coffee:  I would  have  to  say  we  are  all  sill  waiting  patiently   for  our  dear  Paul  Curran   to  rejoin us here at  the  coffee  share   but  until he is  well enough  and up  and  running again  we  shall  have  to  bide our  time!

For  now  everyone  Be  well  and  happy!

If we were having Coffee Original idea  from parttimemonster.

And of course  the


over at Part Time  Monster  and Gene’O’s
Love to you all











Today 17th January’s prompt  is COLLECTION and  was  suggested  by Deborah at Container Chronicles




She had always missed out even from very young

And so that was how her collection had begun.

Anything  that  sparkled  anything  that  was  bright

She  would  gather up  and  hide  from others  sight.


At  first it  was just  shiny  stones  and  coloured bits of paper

Silver coins and  lost beads  were  the  things  that  after  she would  caper.

Milk tops and  sweet wrappers would often take  her  eye

She  would  gather  them up  and  off  with  them fly.


Soon  she  had  a collection that  glinted  like  the sun

Filling up her  little  nest. It  brought her  so much  fun.
