Man those cats can really swing!

Okay - let's have a bit of reminiscing ..

Remember when men wore paisley or harlequin shirts?  and funny hats...and had long hair....and sung strange lyrics?


Deep Purple - Space Truckin'

Originally performed by Deep Purple

Well we had a lot of luck on Venus
We always have a ball on Mars
With meeting all the groovy people
We've rocked the Milky Way so far
We danced around with Borealis
We're space trucking round the stars
Come on, come on, come on,
Let's go Space trucking
Come on, come on, come on, Space trucking!

Remember when we did the moonshot
And Ronny Trekker led the way
We'd move to the Canaveral Moonstomp
And every naut would dance and way
We got music in our solar system
We're space trucking round the stars
Come on, come on, come on,
Let's go Space trucking
Come on, come on, come on, Space trucking!

The fireball that we rode way moving
But now we've got a new machine
Yeah! Yeah! Yeah! the frenks say
Man those cats can really swing
The got music in their solar system
The y've rocked around the Milky Way
They dance around with Borealis
They're space trucking every day!
Come on, come on, come on,
Let's go Space trucking
Come on, come on, come on, Space trucking!
 
 
Thank God for men.  
 
Thank God for my man - who replaced the battery
in my car this week - a couple of times until it 
was just right.
 
 
Thank God for my son who gives me good hugs and 
texts me about the funniest things.
 
Thank God for my father who is the host with the 
most, loving, patient and wise.
 
Thank God for all the sons out there who look me 
in the eye, laugh with me and are resourceful 
in the toughest of times.
 
It's Saturday night - put on your favourite record 
and your dancing shoes - because you can!
