today I give you the meaning of the nonjohn mellencamp discussion group I was assigned to...
here is the third verse of a very special song by joni mitchell. and although I stopped following her years ago, I can do service to "chelsea morning"
"woke up it was a chelsea morning
and the first thing that I saw
was the sun through yellow curtains and a rainbow on the wall
blue, red green and gold to welcome you
crimson crystal beads to reckon
oh won't you stay? we'll put on the day
there's a sunshow every second
now the curtain opens on a portrait of today
and the streets are paved with passersbye and pigeons fly and papers lie
awaiting to blow away.
now the curtain closes and the rainbow runs away
I will bring you incense owls by night
by candle light, by jewel light,
if only you will stay
pretty baby, won't you wake up,
it's a chelsea morning..."
musical motif...notice her rainbow imagery and the way she opens and closes those curtains. It's so cool. In the meantime, I've been following HER fanclub, but as with johncougarmellon, you really have to hear you know, "take it easy"!lol Roll Eyes ???it's good. ::)so okay. a quick double cross in the wind here is that I am a spoiled fan  who takes proprietary priviledges on fan dibbs that I cannot get anywhere else, especially on the aformentioned fan site. So!!ll
How would you like it
If that had been you?
That wasn't really the right thing to do...
So she's on the bus
And  she starts in to yelp,
She's disturbing the peace,
And she knows she needs help.
"Whoops! A bit hasty!"
Well hey hey hey hey!
"Don't tell on me?"
"Could we go all the way?"
She comes back in frustration
To tell you you're wrong...
How😘 do you know what she'll do before long?
Billie says "Gumboot, Your shoes are the best!"
I wish you could try to "get up"&"get dressed"
But Gumboot is chewing tobacco in sin
Bourbon liquor and scotch without soda and gin
Those were the days of the "do it" brigade
Because we  were the kids and we had to obey
Those were the days when our sisters had fun
And we lived through the winters and they "shine, shine,shine, shine, shine (scat) like the sun..."
So shimmer sweet silvery moon phase it zlot
The angels will pray for a blessing from God
Tear your heart 💔 out and blab like some rap in a dream
While I press his pants
He makes coffee for me
And you have a direction
Run your butt up a tree
To carve out a heart for my girlfriend and me
And no sadeyed ladies to ruin the fun
Wash your hands of that s-h-i-t girl! Uh 1 2 3...I'm done.💇🏻‍♂️

I need art to create and I regret the artsyfartsy necessity...This will be my last melloncamp post...
