November 30th – Folies Bergere open – “Cabaret”

In 1886, the #FoliesBergere opened in #Paris.  Here is #LizaMinnelli with #Cabaret #singing;#feelgood

Cabaret

  • What good is sitting alone
  • In your room?
  • Come hear the music play.
  • Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
  • Come to the Cabaret.
  • Put down the knitting,
  • The book and the broom.
  • Time for a holiday.
  • Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
  • Come to the Cabaret.
  • Come taste the wine,
  • COme hear the band.
  • Come blow a horn,
  • Start celebrating;
  • Right this way,
  • Your table’s waiting.
  • No use permitting
  • Some prophet of doom
  • To wipe every smile away.
  • Come hear the music play.
  • Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
  • Come to the Cabaret!
  • I used to have a girlfriend
  • Known as Elsie,
  • With whom I shared
  • Four sordid rooms in Chelsea
  • She wasn’t waht you’d call
  • A blushing flower…
  • As a matter of fact
  • She rented by the hour.
  • The day she died the neighbors
  • Came to snicker:
  • “Well, that’s what comes
  • From too much pills and liquor.”
  • But when I saw her laid out like a Queen,
  • She was the happiest… corpse…
  • I’d ever seen.
  • I think of Elsie to this very day.
  • I remember how she’d turn to me and say:
  • “What good is sitting alone
  • In you room?
  • Come hear the music play.
  • Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
  • Come to the Cabaret.
  • Put down the knitting,
  • The book and the broom.
  • Time for a holiday.
  • Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
  • Come to the Cabaret.”
  • And as for me,
  • I made my mind up, back in Chelsea,
  • When I go, I’m going like Elsie.
  • Start by admitting,
  • From cradle to tomb
  • Isn’t that a long a stay.
  • Life is a Cabaret, old chum,
  • Only a Cabarert, old chum
  • And I love a Cabaret.

Java Jive

I love coffee, I love tea

Coffee and tea and the java and me
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup (boy!)I love java, sweet and hot
Whoops Mr. Moto, I’m a coffee pot
Shoot me the pot and pour me a shot
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup

Oh slip me a slug from the wonderful mug
And Ill cut a rug just snug in a jug
A sliced up onion and a raw one
Draw one –
Waiter, waiter, percolator

I love coffee, I love tea
I love the java jive and it loves me
Coffee and tea and the java and me
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, a cup

Boston bean (soy beans)
Green bean (cabbage and greens)
I’m not keen about a bean
Unless it is a chili chili bean (boy!)

I love java sweet and hot
Whoops Mr. Moto I’m a coffee pot (yeah)
Shoot me the pot and Ill pour me a shot
A cup, a cup, a cup (yeah)

Slip me a slug of the wonderful mug
an Ill cut a rug just as snug in a jug
Drop a nickel in the pot joe
Takin it slow
Waiter, waiter, percolator

I love coffee, I love tea
I love the java jive and it loves me
Coffee and tea and the java and me
A cup, a cup, a cup, a cup, boy!

November 28th – Shakespeare marries Anne Hathaway – “Don’t go breakin’ my heart”

In 1582 #Shakespeare married #AnneHathaway.  400 years later, the modern day actress of that name was born.  Here she is singing an appropriate song from her film #EllaEnchanted#singing;#feelgood

Don’t go breakin’ my heart

Don’t go breaking my heart
I couldn’t if I tried
Honey if I get restless
Baby you’re not that kind
Don’t go breaking my heart
You take the weight off me
Honey when you knocked on my door
I gave you my key
Nobody knows it
When I was down
I was your clown
Nobody knows it
Right from the start
I gave you my heart
I gave you my heart
So don’t go breaking my heart
I won’t go breaking your heart
Don’t go breaking my heart
And nobody told us
‘Cause nobody showed us
And now it’s up to us babe
I think we can make it

So don’t misunderstand me
You put the light in my life
You put the sparks to the flame
I’ve got your heart in my sights

November 27th – Bruce Lee born – “Kung fu fighting”

In 1940, #BruceLee was born.  The greatest star of #KungFu films ever#singing;#feelgood

Kung Fu Fighting

Oh-hoh-hoh-hoah
Oh-hoh-hoh-hoah
Oh-hoh-hoh-hoah
Oh-hoh-hoh-hoah[Chorus:]
Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting
Those kicks were fast as lightning
In fact, it was a little bit frightening
But they fought with expert timing

There was funky China men from funky Chinatown
They were chopping them up
They were chopping them down
It’s an ancient Chinese art
And everybody knew their part
From a fainting, to a slip
And a kickin’ from the hip
Everybody was Kung Fu fighting
Those kids were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit fright’ning
But they fought with expert timing

There was funky Billie Chin and little Sammy Chong
He said, here comes the big boss, let’s get it on
We took the bow and made a stand
Started swaying with the hand
A sudden motion made me skip
Now we’re into a brand new trip

Everybody was Kung Fu fighting
Those kids were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit fright’ning
But they did it with expert timing

Oh-hoh-hoh-hoh, ha
Oh-hoh-hoh-hoh, ha
Oh-hoh-hoh-hoh-ha
Keep on, keep on, keep on
Sure enough
Everybody was Kung Fu fighting
Those kids were fast as lightning
In fact it was a little bit fright’ning
Make sure you have expert timing
Kung Fu fighting, had to be fast as lightning…

November 25th – Mousetrap play opens in London – “Cheese”

In 1952, #Mousetrap, the worlds longest running play, written by #AgathaChristie opened in #London.  Here is #TimMinchin with #Cheese #singing;#feelgood

Cheese

C-H-E-E-S-E

Cheese

Cheese

Cheese

C-H-E-E-S-E

Cheese

Cheese

I love cheese, but its plain to see
That cheese, doesn�t love me
I am such a fool in love
I just cannot get enough
But it�s an unrequited love
I can feel it in my guts

I spend the nights, tossing and turning
My stomach is churning
My heart is a-burning
My nightmares are turning upon me and shame me
To drive me insane, oh the pain, I complain on my brain
And I wake up, with sweat on my brow
I know I gotta give it up and I must do it now
But instead in the morning when my wife is gone
I find myself back on cheeseworld.com

And I know that it�s wrong but I�m soon navigating
To real mature stuff and skanky old ladies
Feeding my fetish for fettered old fetta
Photos of friesian on beds of bruschetta
The more they smell the more they swing
The faster the speed my mouth gets wet oh god

Oh god

J’adore le fromage,
mais le fromage n’est pas adore me.
Rien, je ne regrette rien, except perhaps last night’s half-wheel of post-midnight brie.

Trying to replace my fon-do�s with fon-don�ts
Trying to develop strength of will, but I know that I won�t
I have found love is never fair
We should be such a marvellous pair
But each time I bring her home she goes, renders me comatose
Leaves me with self loathing slumped on my chair

I cannot camen-bear it anymore
E-damn you ?
Everytime I lead you through the door
I end up curled up on the floor
Oh god my poor heart is too sore, so no more

But before I give you up, I just need one more tiny taste
To leave you like this, would be a criminal waste
Just one more tiny taste, darling please
Just one more little slither of C-H-E-E-S-E
Cheese

Cheese

Cheese, cheese, cheese
Cheese

25-11 Tim Minchin Cheese

November 24th – ‘Origin of Species’ published – “I wanna be like you”

In 1859 #Darwin published his world changing book The Origin of Species.  Here  is a song from #Disney s #JungleBook, to celebrate the thinking ape #singing;#feelgood

I wanna be like you

Now I’m the king of the swingers, the jungle V.I.P
I reached the top and had to stop
And that’s what bothering me
I want to be a man, man-cub, and stroll right into town
And be just like those other men
I’m tired of monkeying around
Now don’t try to kid me, man-cub, I’ll make a deal with you
What I desire is man’s red fire to make my dreams come true
So give me the secret, man-cub, clue me what to do
Give me the power of man’s red flower so I can be like youOoh-bi-doo, I wan’na be like you
I want to walk like you, talk like you, too
You see it’s true, an ape like me
Can learn to be like you, too

Now don’t try to kid me, man-cub, I made a deal with you
What I desire is man’s red fire to make my dream’s come true
So give me the secret, man-cub, clue me what to do
Give me the power of man’s red flower so I can be like you

Ooh-bi-doo, I wan’na be like you
I want to walk like you, talk like you, too
You see it’s true, an ape like me
Can learn to be like you, too

Break it down boys, break it down boys, break it down
Break it down boys, break it down boys, break it down

Now I’m the king of the swingers, the jungle V.I.P.
I reached the top and had to stop
And that’s what bothering me
I want to be a man, man-cub, and stroll right into town
And be just like those other men
I’m tired of monkeying around

Ooh-bi-doo, I wan’na be like you
I want to walk like you, talk like you, too
You see it’s true, an ape like me
Can learn to be like you, too

Can learn to be someone like me
