Merry and Happy



Merry Christmas
Happy Hanukkah

 My prayer for each of you is that you embrace all whom you love , look into their eyes and tell them....what ever comes to your mind.  Just being together is the most precious gift.

This year is very different for me…. most all of you already know.  

  I have re-worded a song to pay tribute to my much loved and missed brother.

If you can't handle some racy words, do not read any further.




This is a childhood memory being shared with ya! 


We’ve heard there was a secret chord
That Cordie played and it pleased the Lord
Now he’s gone and how I miss him, do ya?

Well it goes like this –we hit the street
And found a snowy place to meet 
And off we go to ride the bumpers, hallelujah

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Our spirits high the air was brisk
We perched right there and took the risk
And hung on to the speeding car, booya

The baffled driver looking rear
Saw nothing in their rear view mirror
And took off down the snowy street, yahoo-ya

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

You glanced over with eyes filled bright
And there I was just hanging tight
Just left of that Ford tail light, lookin’ to ya

Staring back, I knew I’d see
My brother looking right at me
That shit-eating grin was looking right thru ya

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Once that driver hit the gas
We’d crouch low and freeze our ass
Our boots would fill with dirty snow, screw ya

Our hands would grip that bumper tight
Two young foolish kids were taking flight
Like two wild animals raised in a zoo-ya

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Thick as thieves we ran the streets
Frozen hands and frozen feet
Chasing dreams of downhill flight,  so what’s it to ya



For snacks and treats just up the street
None to share, for us to eat
Wrappers lay around our feet, nothing for ya

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Back outside into the cold
Barely 10 and 12 years old
Our guts filled tight we’d spent all of our moolah

We would search for our next new tow
With burning hands and a dripping nose
No time to stop and shoot the breeze to ya

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Because we knew it was time to flee
We nestled behind the tree,
Hiding there and trying to fool’ya

Time to book or haul some ass
Escape with drivers, please hit the gas
Their failed attempts to capture us, screw ya

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

The moonlight shone so bright and clear
The snow filled streets we held so dear
Anticipating the next hitch, hallelujah

Any direction would be great
How flippin’ long now would we wait
It was never hard for us to stray comin’ to ya

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

We were smart if only in our own heart
Taking risks that gave us a start
Our mother’s at home drinking beer, cheers to ya

So we had nothing more to fear
It was just you and me hiding here
Two crazy kids what a blast, whooo hooo hoooo hooo ya

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Bumper hitching in the snow
Very dangerous yes we know
Were told so many times so what’s it to ya?

My friend, my brother I held you dear
Those time as kids come back so clear
With tear streaked cheeks I’m blowing a kiss right to ya

There’s a smile right on my face,
Please take me with you every place
My heart and spirit are still right here with ya

Hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah, hallelujah

Many thanks to my much loved husband, Mr. McSteamy, for helping me maintain the melody....something that is far beyond my reach.

With Deep and Sincere Gratitude,
OK and a Smile and Giggle too!

Kelly
