Wham Bam Thank You Ma’am

I posted this on FB and Nancy just about lost it.  I like to post songs that reflect what’s up with me that day and she was flabbergasted that I found a song that fit the situation with M and a few other folks so very well…

Well, she was a lady of charms
A string of young boys on each arm
She was good to those who took off all their clothes or played guitar
Love comes days go any way your mind blows
Wham, bam, thank you, mam
We’ll boogie till the rooster crows

He lived alone; love for none
He said pain never hurt anyone
Surprise surprise!
Consumption on the floor
Stretcher out the door and that was it
God forsaken empty shell forgotten in a bad smell
Wham, bam, look out, Sam
The devil claims his own to moan in hell

Shang-a-lang-a, Shang-a-do-lang, Shang-a-lang-a
Sa-i-di ma-moon, sa-i-di ma-moon, Sa-i-di gris gris

Well close your breath, and hold your eyes
Turn the corner of surprise, and there you are
Well Our lives are run by ego freaks
A walking book of rules who seeks
To keep you in your pidgeon hole
And boss you when your soul steps out of line
