The Mind Wobbles

So many things to absorb, think about, deal with and put up with - it simply makes the mind wobble...

"Show and Tell" by Al Wilson

Al Wilson , who sang "Show and Tell" in the 70s, died yesterday.

When I was in third grade I fell in love with a boy named Aristides (stop laughing! we called him Artie) and we were on and off *going steady* between 3rd and 8th grade - even after he left my school to go to public school! This was "our song". Thanks Al!

Artie, this one's for you...

Show and Tell (as sung by Al Wilson)
These are the eyes that never knew how to smile
Till you came into my life (do-do-do-do-do)
And these are the arms
That long to lock you inside every day
And every night (do-do-do-do-do)
Girl, and here is the soul of which you've taken control
Can'tcha see I'm tryin' to show love is right
Whoa, oh, oh, oh show and tell
Just a game I play
When I wanna say "I love you"
Girl, so show me and tell me
That you feel the same way too
Say you do, baby
These are the hands
That can't help reaching for you
If you're anywhere in sight(Anywhere in sight)
And these are the lips
That can't help callin' your name
In the middle of the night (Middle of the night)
Whoa, and here is the man
Who needs to know where you stand
Dontcha know I've done all I can, so decide
Whoa, oh, oh, oh show and tell
Just a game I play
When I wanna say "I love you" (I love you)
Girl, so show me and tell me
That you feel the same way too
Say you do, say you do, baby, baby, baby
Ahh, here is the soul
Of which you've taken control
Can't you see I'm tryin' to show love is right
Ooh, girl, show and tell
Just a game I play
When I wanna say "Oh, I love you"
Girl, so show me and tell me
That you feel the same way too
Say you do, say you do, baby
Whoa, oh, oh, oh show and tell
Just a game I play
When I wanna say "Oh, I love you"
Girl, so show me and tell me
That you feel the same way too
Say you do, baby, baby...
