Lyrics Post: Sweet Emotion

Sweet Emotion, Aerosmith

All those years ago, to right now, even last night, this song makes me tap along, sing along, and wonder just what this one’s all about. Wonder in a groovy, cool way. Groove along. Remember the riff, remember the refrain, dig it.

Sweet emotion

Sweet emotion

Sweet emotion

Sweet emotion

You talk about things that nobody cares

You’re wearing out things that nobody wears

You’re calling my name but I gotta make clear

I can’t say baby where I’ll be in a year

When some sweet hog mama with a face like a gent

Said my get up and go must’ve got up and went

Well I got good news, she’s a real good liar

‘Cause the backstage boogie sets your pants on fire

Sweet emotion

Sweet emotion

When I pulled into town in a police car

Your daddy said I took it just a little too far

You’re telling me things but your girlfriend lied

You can’t catch me ’cause the rabbit done died

Yes it did

You stand in the front just a shakin’ your ass

I’ll take you backstage, you can drink from my glass

We’re talking about something I can sure understand

‘Cause a month on the road an’ I’ll be eating from your hand

Songwriters: Steven Tyler / Tom Hamilton

A Dad’s List, #6 : A Daughter and The Pumpkin Patch

Really this post is more, “a dad’s list in pictures.”

I was super lucky a couple weeks back: I took the day off to go with my younger daughter and her class to the pumpkin patch.

It was the best of both worlds. I got to be with my daughter, but also see her in her new element: with classmates, new friends.

Chalk the joy up to Simple Dad Stuff. For a dad, this was the meat & potatoes of what’s fun with your kid: watching her be herself with her peeps.

So blessed by the everyday, this once a year adventure, the share it with your kid.

So blessed to have the time, so blessed to be a dad.

It was GOOD.
