Song Lyric Sunday. Animals.

Jim Adams, aka Newwpicauthor, has decided that this week’s SONG-LYRIC-SUNDAY will be Animal.

Well I struggled with this prompt. Being late to the party the first to mind would be already used. Then I remembered Let’s Do It. The 1920’s Cole Porter standard. I chose the Alanis Morissette version.

I do love this version I hope you do too.

Let’s Do It (Let’s Fall In Love)”

Lyrics. Cole Porter

Birds do it, bees do it
Even educated fleas do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

In Spain, the best upper sets do it
Lithuanians and Letts do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

The Dutch in old Amsterdam do it
Not to mention the Finns
Folks in Siam do it – think of Siamese twins

Some Argentines without means do it
People say in Boston even beans do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

Romantic sponges, they say, do it
Oysters down in Oyster Bay do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

Cold Cape Cod clams, ‘gainst their wish, do it
Even lazy jellyfish do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

Electric eels, I might add, do it
Though it shocks ’em I know
Why ask if shad do it? Waiter, bring me shad roe!

In shallow shoals, English soles do it
Goldfish in the privacy of bowls do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

In old Japan, all the Japs do it
Up in Lapland little Laps do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

The chimpanzees in the zoos do it
Some courageous kangaroos do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

I’m sure giraffes on the sly do it
Even eagles as they fly do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

Electric eels, I might add, do it
Though it shocks ’em I know
Why ask if shad do it? Garçon, de shad roe!

The world admits bears in pits do it
Even Pekingeses at the Ritz do it
Let’s do it, let’s fall in love

The royal set sans regret did it
And they considered it fun
Marie Antoinette did it –
With or without Napoleon

Lyrics from A to Z Lyrics.

Song Lyric Sunday:Magic

This week’s prompt from Helen Vahdati is Magic. 

Rules and Pingback Here

Let the magic begin.

As a child I loved reading and being read fairy tales. Now fairy tales are not really for children, they are often very scary BUT they are full of magic. I love magic.

Now C S Lewis was a wonderful storyteller and believe it or not he was a friend and drinking partner to J R R Tolkien. They both wrote wonderful stories, stories of my childhood.

This song l have chosen this week is Wunderkind by Alanis Morissette from the Chronicles of Narnia. The song , the book and the film are so full of magic that they fill me with magic. 

Lyrics by AZ lyrics

“Wunderkind”

Oh perilous place walk backwards toward you 
Blink disbelieving eyes chilled to the bone 
Most visibly brave no aprehended gloom 
First to take this foot to virgin snow 

I am a magnet for all kinds of deeper wonderment 
I am a wunderkind oh oh oh oooooh 
And I lift the envelope pushed far enough to believe this 
I am a princess on the way to my throne 

Destined to serve, destined to roam 

Oh ominous place spellbound and unchild-proofed 
My least favorite chill to bare alone 
Compatriots in place they’d cringe if I told you 
Our best back-pocket secret our bond full-blown 

I am a magnet for all kinds of deeper wonderment 
I am a wunderkind oh oh oh oooooh 
I am a pioneer naive enough to believe this 
I am a princess on the way to my throne 

Destined to seek, destined to know 

Most beautiful place reborn and blown off roof 
My view about-face whether great will be done 

I am a magnet for all kinds of deeper wonderment 
I am a wunderkind oh oh oh oooooh 
I am a ground-breaker naive enough to believe this 
I am a princess on the way to my throne 

I am a magnet for all kinds of deeper wonderment 
I am a wunderkind oh oh oh oooooh 
I am a Joan of Arc and smart enough to believe this 
I am a princess on the way to my throne 

Destined to reign, destined to roam 
Destined to reign, destined to roam 
Destined to reign, destined to roam 
Destined to reign, destined to roam
