Song Lyric Sunday. Cool/Groovy/Hip/Nifty/Radical/Swell .

This week’s prompt for Jim Adams of NewEpicAuthor is Cool/Groovy/Hip/Nifty/Radical/Swell . A wide canvas for us to choose from. I going to use more than one song this week.

Well I have used this song from George Harrison singing Back long ago when we was Fab.

Fab was a word we used a lot back in the day to describe all things connected with the prompt words. It’s a brilliant video too with Ringo Starr adding to it charm.

When We Was Fab”

Back then long time ago when grass was green
Woke up in a daze
Arrived like strangers in the night
Fab – long time ago when we was fab
Fab – back when income tax was all we had

Caresses fleeced you in the morning light
Casualties at dawn
And we did it all
Fab – long time ago when we was fab
Fab – you are my world you are my only love

And while you’re in this world
The fuzz gonna come and claim you
But you mo better wise
When the buzz gonna come and take you away
Take you away
Take you away

The microscopes that magnified the tears
Studied warts and all
Still the life flows on and on
Fab – long time ago when we was fab
Fab – but It’s All Over Now Baby Blue
Fab – long time ago when we was fab
Fab – like this pullover you sent to me

Fab
And You Really Got A Hold On Me
fab – long time ago when we was fab.

Now in the same vain another song not one hundred percent on prompt but certainly extolls all of it ingredients is Shiny Happy People from REM .

Shiny Happy People”

Shiny happy people laughing

Meet me in the crowd, people, people
Throw your love around, love me, love me
Take it into town, happy, happy
Put it in the ground where the flowers grow
Gold and silver shine

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Everyone around, love them, love them
Put it in your hands, take it, take it
There’s no time to cry, happy, happy
Put it in your heart where tomorrow shines
Gold and silver shine

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Whoa, here we go

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people holding hands
Shiny happy people laughing

Shiny happy people holding hands
People, happy people
People

And let’s throw another golden classic into the mix . What a Swell Party this is. (Well did you Evah) from the film High Society.

Have you heard, amoung this clan
I am called ‘The forgotten man’?
Well, did you evah?
What a swell party this is!

Have you heard the story of
A boy, a girl , urequitted love?
Well, did you evah?
What a swell party this is!

What frills, what frocks!
What furs, what rocks!
What gaiety!
It’s all to exquis!
That French champagne!
So good for the brain!
That bands, it’s the end!
Kindly don’t fall down my friend.

Have you heard? Professor Munch
Ate his wife and divorced his lunch.
Well, did you evah?
What a swell party this is!

Have you heard? The countess Krupp
Crossed the bridge when the bridge was up.
Well, did you evah?
What a swell party this is!

Have you heard that Mimsie Starr
Just got pinched in the Astor bar?
Well, did you evah?
What a swell party this is!

Have you heard that Uncle Newt
Forgot to open his parachute?
Well, did you evah?
What a swell party this is!

It’s great, it’s grand!
It’s wonderland!
What soup, what fish!
That beef, what a dish!
That grouse, so rare!
That aged camembert!
That bab au rhum!
Will you please move over chum?

Have you heard that dear old Blanch
Got run down by an avalanche?
Well, did you evah?
What a swell party this is!

Have you heard? It’s in the stars,
Next July we collide with Mars!
Well, did you evah?
What a swell party this is!

What a swellagent, elagent party this is!

So if like us in the UK you are enjoying a Bank Holiday tomorrow have a great day. If your not I hope you still have a great day. Keep smiling and being Cool/Groovy/Hip/Nifty/Radical/Swell
