Though not a country lover, my theme song has long been Just Another Day in Paradise. I giggled this week as it played again in my undercounter CD player,
The kids screaming, phone ringing
Dog barking at the mailman bringing
That stack of bills - overdue
Good morning baby, how are you?
Got a half hour, quick shower
Take a drink of milk but the milk's gone sour
My funny face makes you laugh
Twist the top on and I put it back
There goes the washing machine
Baby, don't kick it.
I promise I'll fix it
Long about a million other things
Except, this time, I've got laryngitis, we're totally out of groceries, the washer is broken, I'm out of money, the truck is broken, and Briz needs to fix the lawnmower before the snows set in. I am clueless as to how to accomplish this without a truck. Briz is much more resourceful. I pick up the children from school.
We drive by, pause, wave, honk, and laugh our heads off!
Well, it's ok. It's so nice
It's just another day in paradise
Well, there's no place that
I'd rather be
Well, it's two hearts
And one dream
I wouldn't trade it for anything
And I ask the Lord every night
For just another day in paradise
