Ob-La-Di-Ob-La-Da

The prompt for Song Lyric Sunday is Couple-Together-Us. This is the song that immediately came to mind for me. It describes the epitome of happy relationships–at least for my generation!!! Written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, performed by Paul McCartney live in Hyde Park in 2010.

 

“Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da”

Desmond has a barrow in the market place

Molly is the singer in a band

Desmond says to Molly, “Girl, I like your face”

And Molly says this as she takes him by the handOb-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how their life goes on
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how their life goes on

Desmond takes a trolley to the jeweler’s stores
Buys a twenty carat golden ring (Golden ring?)
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing (Sing)

Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how their life goes on
Ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how their life goes on, yeah (No)

In a couple of years they have built
A home sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones
(Ah ha ha ha ha ha)

Happy ever after in the market place
Desmond lets the children lend a hand (Arm! Leg!)
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face
And in the evening she still sings it with the band

Yes, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how their life goes on (Ha ha ha)
Hey, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how their life goes on

In a couple of years they have built
A home sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
Of Desmond and Molly Jones
(Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha)

Yeah, happy ever after in the market place
Molly lets the children lend a hand (Foot!)
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face
And in the evening she’s a singer with the band

Yeah, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how their life goes on
Yeah, ob-la-di ob-la-da life goes on bra
La-la how their life goes on

And if you want some fun
Take ob-la-di ob-la-da

(Thank you, uh, ha ha ha!)

    The song going through my mind, with all of the complaints over the present situation, has brought on memories of the second world war when our songs were uplifting and talked about the ending and hope, instead of our troubles. This one especially goes through my mine:
    THERE’LL BE BLUEBIRDS OVER THE WHITE CLIFFS OF DOVER
    by: Vera Lynn

    There’ll be bluebirds over
    The white cliffs of Dover
    Tomorrow, just you wait and see
    I’ll never forget the people I met
    Braving those angry skies
    I remember well as the shadows fell
    The light of hope in their eyes
    And though I’m far away
    I still can hear them say
    “Thumbs up!”
    For when the dawn comes up
    There’ll be bluebirds over
    The white cliffs of Dover
    Tomorrow, just you wait and see
    There’ll be love and laughter
    And peace ever after
    Tomorrow, when the world is free
    The shepherd will tend his sheep
    The valley will bloom again
    And Jimmy will go to sleep
    In his own little room again
    I may not be near, but I have no fear
    History will prove it too
    When the tale is told
    It will be as of old
    For truth will always win through;
    But be I far or near
    That slogan still I’ll sing…
    There’ll be bluebirds over
    The white cliffs of Dover
    Tomorrow, just you wait and see
    When night shadows fall, I’ll always recall
    Out there across the sea
    Twilight falling down on some little town
    It’s fresh in my memory
    I hear mother pray
    And to her baby say
    “Don’t cry!”
    This is her lullaby
    There’ll be bluebirds over
    The white cliffs of Dover
    Tomorrow, just you wait and see
    LISTEN~!
