Stayin' Alive

To get the FULL ENTERTAINMENT VALUE of the following piece--PLEASE push the play button on my sidebar.
(Well, actually, picturing me singing in a falsetto voice in white spandex might give you more bang for your blogging buck)

(Then there is the picture of me with my finger in a light socket singing falsetto--Ah, ha, ha, ha....)

(Or--there is the picture of me dancing disco, singing falsetto in a white spandex straight jacket...)


(--oh I just can't decide....)





Stayin Alive


Well, you can tell by the way I cross my eyes,
I've lost my mind: no time to talk.
The kids are loud and the freezer's warm, I've been kicked around
Since they were born.
And now it's alright. It's ok.
And you may look the other way.
We can try to understand
why it is I can no longer stand.

Whether your're a brother or whether you're a mother,
Your're stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
Feel my mind breakin', and everybody shakin',
And we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
AH, HA, HA, HA stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
AH, HA,HA,HA stayin' alive.

Well now, I get low and I get high,
All medication I will gladly try.
Got my Mother's voice in my head.
On my phone, just shoot me dead.
You know it's alright, it's ok.
She'll live to see another day.
We can try to understand
"frosted" flakes effect, oh man.

Whether your're a brother or whether you're a mother,
Your're stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
Feel my mind breakin', and everybody shakin',
And we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
AH, HA, HA, HA stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
AH, HA,HA,HA stayin' alive.

Life goin' everywhere. Somebody help me.
Somebody help me, yeah.
Life goin' everywhere. Somebody help me.
Somebody help me, yeah. Stayin' alive.

Well, second daughter gets mono and needs Mom,
Must retrieve her and bring her home.
Dad's still sick and hanging on,
School is out, I'm barely hangin' on.
And now it's alright. It's ok.
And you may look the other way.
While I try to understand
The reason I am mad.

Whether your're a brother or whether you're a mother.
Your're stayin' alive, staying' alive.
Feel the van is breakin' cuz it's a really shakin',
So far we're stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
AH, HA, HA, HA, stayin' alive, stayin' alive.
AH, HA, HA, HA, stayin' alive.

Life goin' everywhere. Somebody help me.
Somebody help me, yeah.
Life goin' everywhere. Somebody help me, yeah.
I'm stayin' alive.


Hey everyone! Yes, my nose is still above water but the waves are high. (Cuz everyone loves a good nautical mixed metaphor- right?!) Anyways--more soon---hope all is well!!

LisaLou..been thinkin' of you...
God must have put you in my head! Don't you love that we can sort of handle it all? or so people think.. Moms can do what people wouldn't dream of burdening others with..on short or no notice.
We have a couple of more weeks of school, but the kids are already working out activities to go to, so as not to be bored...like by chores or things like that. I am doing a summer Bible study that I am excited about...Beth Moore, take me away!! keep us in the loop.

Brilliant-- you're going mad but still waaaay more clever than I could ever been in top form. :-)

Forget Kelly, why don't you just send YOU over here and we'll give you a break?

*hugs*

Sue said...

Hang on Lisa Loo...At least your brain's still in top form...along with your slightly deranged sense of humor!

Hugs to you.

My family is now looking at me like I've lost my mind (again) because I'm laughing so hard at this! The soundtrack just makes it even better.

Hope things calm down.

Stay alive please.

Perfect Song!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I tell you between your house and my house we should both be completely insane!!

I have a MIL aptartment that my mom and dad live in. Mom watches my every move plus calls at least 3 times a day to see if I am going anywhere.

Dad is in a wheelchair, but he is not as high maintenence as my mom.

My daughter, her husband and 3 boys live in my basement. What the hell?!?!?!?!? I am having fun w/ the kids. Well not just the kids, you know what I mean.

Carla said...

(I'll be singing this all day:)

You are a crack up - Great job on the song!

Terresa said...

You are a riot -- in a good, fun, milk-shooting-through-the-nose way. I'd have you over in your white spandex for some chocolate chip waffles any day!
