what up doc ??

I'm on my own, nowhere to roam
I tell you baby, don't want no home
I wander round, feet off the ground
I even go from town to town
I said I think this rock is grand
Say I'll be your man
Don't bring me down, don't bring me down

I met this chick, the other day
And then to me, she said she'll stay
I get this pad, just like a cave
And then we'll have, our living made
And then I'll lead her on the ground
My head is spinning round
Don't bring me down, don't bring me down

I need a lover 'cause someone new
And then to her I will be true
I'll buy her furs and pretty things
I'll even buy a wedding ring
But until then I'll settle down
Say I'll be your man
Don't bring me down, don't bring me down
Until then I'll settle down
Say I'll be your man
Don't bring me down, don't bring me down
Don't bring me down

Once upon a time you dressed so fine
You threw the bums a dime in your prime, didn't you?
People'd call, say, "Beware doll, you're bound to fall"
You thought they were all kiddin' you
You used to laugh about
Everybody that was hangin' out
Now you don't talk so loud
Now you don't seem so proud
About having to be scrounging for your next meal.

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be without a home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?

You've gone to the finest school all right, Miss Lonely
But you know you only used to get juiced in it
And nobody has ever taught you how to live on the street
And now you find out you're gonna have to get used to it
You said you'd never compromise
With the mystery tramp, but now you realize
He's not selling any alibis
As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes
And ask him do you want to make a deal?

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?

You never turned around to see the frowns on the jugglers and the clowns
When they all come down and did tricks for you
You never understood that it ain't no good
You shouldn't let other people get your kicks for you
You used to ride on the chrome horse with your diplomat
Who carried on his shoulder a Siamese cat
Ain't it hard when you discover that
He really wasn't where it's at
After he took from you everything he could steal.

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?

Princess on the steeple and all the pretty people
They're drinkin', thinkin' that they got it made
Exchanging all kinds of precious gifts and things
But you'd better lift your diamond ring, you'd better pawn it babe
You used to be so amused
At Napoleon in rags and the language that he used
Go to him now, he calls you, you can't refuse
When you got nothing, you got nothing to lose
You're invisible now, you got no secrets to conceal.

How does it feel
How does it feel
To be on your own
With no direction home
Like a complete unknown
Like a rolling stone?

i get around

I'm really sorry Steven
But your bicycle's been stolen
I was watching it for you
'Til you came back in the fall
Guess I didn't do a good job after all

I was feeling really sorry Steven
And I spent all morning grieving
And everybody's saying
That you'll take the news gracefully
Somehow I don't think I'll be getting off so easily

I meant her no harm
When I left her unlocked
Outside the Orange Street Food Farm
I was just running in
Didn't think I'd be that long
I came out, she was gone
And all that was there was some bored old dog
Leashed up to the place where your bicycle had been
Guess we'll never see poor Madeleine again

Let this be consolation, Steven
That all the while you were in England
I treated her with care and respect
And have her lots of love
And I was usually pretty good 'bout locking her up

has she gone?
Well, I bet she's on the bottom of a Frenchtown pond
Rudely abused on some hescher's joyride
So I wrote you this song
In the hope that you'd forgive me
Even though it was wrong
Being so careless with a thing so great
And taking your poor Madeleine away, away

if you don't know them then you should.

At Last..


One, I'm not sure if anyone remembers but about a month back I was planning a baby shower for one of my dearest friends.  Two weekends ago was finally the day of the party and wow, was I stressed but I had a really fun time putting everything together and it turned out absolutely perfect!  I have over 100 photos but I didn't want to overload so here are a few cute and crafty things I put together that I wanted to show all of my readers..if I even have any left..I know I haven't posted much lately I've just been busy as usual and I'm sorrrryy!

Anddd two, recently I found a wonderful and amazing website called invisiblechildren.com ..if anyone has a chance, check it out.  The war in Uganda is the longest running war in history and also the most neglected, especially by the United States which hurts my heart just to say. Innocent children in Africa have been abducted and held hostage used as soldiers to fight in this terrible war.  Because of numerous attacks on Uganda the government has formed concentration camps for it's citizens attempting to protect them from future raids. Unfortunately the camps are so overcrowded that disease runs rapid resulting in thousands of deaths and orphaned children.  Poverty, malnutrition, terror and starvation is the only way of living that the citizens of Uganda know and invisible children is such an incredible and innovative non profit program here to change that forever.  Please have it in your hearts to visit their website and make a donation or volunteer in your community to help save lives ♥

Happy Monday!

or at least it's happy for me..while others are starting their work week today mine is just ending...

(this picture is breathtaking...what I wouldn't give to be relaxing at an umbrella shaded table in front of that charming little cafe nibbling on macaroons and sipping hot cafe mocha's!) ♥
Today is my only day off this week and I couldn't have asked for more beautiful weather.  This morning I did a little shopping at Trader Joe's and then spent the rest of the afternoon in my bikini soaking up all the rays I could get on my roof top deck.  I love it up there, the view of lake michigan is beautiful and I love staring at all the buildings from the 20th floor, it's really amazing.  I got some much needed color that I've been craving for quite some time!  Tonight I'm coloring my hair jet black and then it's sushi night with my two of my best girlfriends!  I can hardly wait, if I had it my way I would probably eat sushi every day of the week for the rest of my life, it's just that delicious.  Then were gunna pop a bottle of sweet riesling, enjoy the nightlife of the city and take it from there.  I hope everyone had a fun weekend and I hope you're all enjoying your Mondays as much as I, if not..there's always tomorrow!  Take care lovies :)
