Monday's Music Moves Me: "T" is for.....


Welcome back to our rockin' good meme Monday's Music Moves Me! The exciting music meme that XmasDolly and I are hosting, now along with Larry from Cakeblast and Callie from JamericanSpice. Won't you play along... here are the rules:

First step: You need to run on over to You Tube, (or wherever your find your songs/videos) and get your pick for the day according to the theme. Upcoming themes are over on Dolly's blog on the right sidebar.

Second Step: Grab our "Monday's Music Moves Me" button above or on Dolly's right sidebar.

Third step: Dance with (follow) your hostesses (that would be me and Dolly); grab our buttons; then sign the linky, either here or on Dolly's blog - they are linked.

Final step: Start lookin' for a partner and boogie on down to her blog (or his), and say hello by leaving a comment, and tag (follow) her/him. If you've been tagged (followed) be polite, and go on over there, leave a comment and tag (follow) her/him back.

In honor of Thanksgiving this week, our theme is songs that begin with the letter "T", so I have chosen two - but I had major computer problems and had to reinstall Windows 7 and all of my operating systems and programs and for some reason, I can't get my video programs to work (UURRGGHHH!) so I'm just going to post photos and lyrics of my songs and give you a link to YouTube so you can head over to hear the songs.... Which you absolutely have to do - at least for the first song because you will be missing something that you must experience at least ONCE in your lifetime....

Tiny Tim singing Tiptoe Thru the Tulips  (there really is NOTHING like it!!)

{See Tiny Tim on YouTube}

Tiptoe to the window, by the window that is where I'll be......

Come tiptoe through the tulips with me!

Tiptoe from your pillow, to the shadow of a willow tree.....
And tiptoe through the tulips with me!

Knee deep in flowers will stray, we'll keep the showers away.

And if I kiss you in the garden, in the moonlight, will you pardon me?

Come tiptoe through the tulips with me!

Don Ho singing Tiny Bubbles (Another classic that needs to be heard)

{See Don Ho on YouTube}

Tiny bubbles (tiny bubbles)

In the wine (in the wine)
Make me happy (make me happy)
Make me feel fine (make me feel fine)

Tiny bubbles (tiny bubbles)
Make me warm all over
With a feeling that I'm gonna
Love you till the end of time

So here's to the golden moon
And here's to the silver sea
And mostly here's a toast
To you and me

So here's to the ginger lei
I give to you today
And here's a kiss
That will not fade away

Now, don't forget to sign the linky and visit the participants and leave a comment.

Those are so crazy T flashback songs. Good Lord. I haven't heard those songs since I was a kid! Classics and you are so right. You have to listen to them at least once in your lifetime.

Thanks so much for the MM shout out. I am so thankful for bloggie buddies like you. :-)

Happy Thanksgiving!
