When I was young, I never needed anyone. Well, I never needed anyone singing at me. Happy faces singing at me when I got up in the morning just makes me more grumpy. When I wake up in the morning … used to anyway … I would wake up grumpy. I don’t know why, but so it happened. My sisters would sing this song from “their day.” A song that was chipper, boppy and had my name. A perfect blend of taunt cocktail mixed and delivered as I walked down the hallway. I have four sisters, you see, so the chipperness and boppiness was of arena performance quality.
Brent must have remembered this little tidbit of my life. That’s why he youtube-ed me with this beauty. While I cringe with flashbacks, I also bounce a bit. I must admit, there is a bop to it. Now my daughter, who likes to taunt, hears it and calls out, “MOM! It’s your song!” Oh and I love her for this. So for you, I give you a classic Monkees hit with a little insight of this song on my life.
