Almost Wordless Wednesday: It's My Birthday

Photobucket


I already received my birthday present, folks: I was carded last night. Even though I'm more than twice the legal age. Where did all the time go? I mean, really!

But if you want to get me a gift, here's what you can do:

1) Buy an ad on MTMD or Inside Government.
2) Purchase a Project Wonderful Ad on MTMD--just click the link at the top of my right sidebar.
3) Send a donation to Paypal: msurdan@aol.com
4) Buy me chocolate or coffee--leave me a comment with your email address and we'll figure out the details.
5) Comment on this post with your favorite ABBA lyrics.

Thanks for reading.

Happy birthday! Here's my favourite Abba lyrics (i like the whole song)

Mama Mia

I've been cheated by you since I don't know when
So I made up my mind, it must come to an end
Look at me now, will I ever learn?
I don't know how but I suddenly lose control
There's a fire within my soul
Just one look and I can hear a bell ring
One more look and I forget everything, w-o-o-o-oh

Mamma mia, here I go again
My my, how can I resist you?
Mamma mia, does it show again?
My my, just how much I've missed you
Yes, I've been brokenhearted
Blue since the day we parted
Why, why did I ever let you go?
Mamma mia, now I really know,
My my, I could never let you go.

I've been angry and sad about things that you do
I can't count all the times that I've told you we're through
And when you go, when you slam the door
I think you know that you won't be away too long
You know that I'm not that strong.
Just one look and I can hear a bell ring
One more look and I forget everything, w-o-o-o-oh

Mamma mia, here I go again
My my, how can I resist you?
Mamma mia, does it show again?
My my, just how much I've missed you
Yes, I've been brokenhearted
Blue since the day we parted
Why, why did I ever let you go?
Mamma mia, even if I say
Bye bye, leave me now or never
mamma mia, it's a game we play
Bye bye doesn't mean forever

Mamma mia, here I go again
My my, how can I resist you?
Mamma mia, does it show again?
My my, just how much I've missed you
Yes, I've been brokenhearted
Blue since the day we parted
Why, why did I ever let you go
Mamma mia, now I really know
My my, I could never ever let you go

SOS

Where are those happy days, they seem so hard to find
I tried to reach for you, but you have closed your mind
Whatever happened to our love?
I wish I understood
It used to be so nice, it used to be so good

So when you're near me, darling can't you hear me
S. O. S.
The love you gave me, nothing else can save me
S. O. S.
When you're gone
How can I even try to go on?
When you're gone
Though I try how can I carry on?

You seem so far away though you are standing near
You made me feel alive, but something died I fear
I really tried to make it out
I wish I understood
What happened to our love, it used to be so good

So when you're near me, darling can't you hear me
S. O. S.
The love you gave me, nothing else can save me
S. O. S.
When you're gone
How can I even try to go on?
When you're gone
Though I try how can I carry on?

So when you're near me, darling can't you hear me
S. O. S.
And the love you gave me, nothing else can save me
S. O. S.
When you're gone
How can I even try to go on?
When you're gone
Though I try how can I carry on?
When you're gone
How can I even try to go on?
When you're gone
Though I try how can I carry on?

Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday Matt!

Dancing Queen

ou can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
Ooo.. see that girl, watch that scene, diggin the dancing queen

Friday night and the lights are low
Looking out for the place to go
Where they play the right music, getting in the swing
You come in to look for a king
Anybody could be that guy
Night is young and the music's high
With a bit of rock music, everything is fine
You're in the mood for a dance
And when you get the chance

You are the dancing queen, young and sweet, only seventeen
Dancing queen, feel the beat from the tambourine oh yeah
You can dance, you can jive, having the time of your life
Ooo see that girl, watch that scene, diggin the dancing queen

Oh those were the days. I hope you have a wonderful birthday:-)

Happy Birthday, Matt! I like your bold approach: Send me money, buy an ad, buy me chocolate etc. :) I hope you have a good one! I like ABBA's Dancing Queen but that's it. That band gets on my nerves! How about I dedicate Steely Dan's Josie to you in light of your birthday?

Happy Birthday Matt!! Did you mama know what you did last night? lol!

Did you mama know?

Youre so hot, teasing me
So youre blue but I cant take a chance on a chick like you
Thats something I couldnt do
Theres that look in your eyes
I can read in your face that your feelings are driving you wild
Ah, but girl youre only a child

Well I can dance with you honey
If you think its funny
Does your mother know that youre out?
And I can chat with you baby
Flirt a little maybe
Does your mother know that youre out?

Take it easy (take it easy)
Better slow down girl
Thats no way to go
Does your mother know?
Take it easy (take it easy)
Try to cool it girl
Take it nice and slow
Does your mother know?

I can see what you want
But you seem pretty young to be searching for that kind of fun
So maybe Im not the one
Now youre so cute, I like your style
And I know what you mean when you give me a flash of that smile (smile)
But girl youre only a child

Well I can dance with you honey
If you think its funny
Does your mother know that youre out?
And I can chat with you baby
Flirt a little maybe
Does your mother know that youre out?

Take it easy (take it easy)
Better slow down girl
Thats no way to go
Does your mother know?
Take it easy (take it easy)
Try to cool it girl
Take it nice and slow
Does your mother know?

Well I can dance with you honey
If you think its funny
Does your mother know that youre out?
And I can chat with you baby
Flirt a little maybe
Does your mother know that youre out?

Enjoy!!

Happy Birthday Meat!!!

I can't afford a bloody ad, have you seen your price? :) I've got a few links to you in my new post, that's a pressie innit?

lyrics? gotta be:

Love is a tune you hum-de-hum-hum
So give it away, I think you'll learn
You'll get love in return
So bang, a boom-a-boomerang is love

Thank you all very much for the Project Wonderful Ads, the EntreCard Ads, the comments, the ABBA lyrics, the humor and the well wishes!

It's been a great day and every comment you have placed has added a smile or a grin or made me laugh!

Thank you all so much for your kindness!

And Len--if we can't party at "our" age, then what's the point?

Laura--thanks for the dedication of Josie!

Mrs. Mecomber--Happy Anniversary!

Ken--that's definitely the most appropriate ABBA song--you really had to search to find that one, eh?

Happy B-Day Matt! I don't really have any favorite ABBA lyrics or songs. The last time I ever heard an ABBA song was back in '75 when I lived in Germany! Sorry!

How about if I give you a backlink instead? ;)

Belated Happy Birthday, Matt. Here's my Abba lyrics gift to you. Better late than never, right?

Lay All Your Love on Me

I wasnt jealous before we met
Now every woman I see is a potential threat
And Im possessive, it isnt nice
Youve heard me saying that smoking was my only vice
But now it isnt true
Now everything is new
And all Ive learned has overturned
I beg of you......

Dont go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me

It was like shooting a sitting duck
A little smalltalk, a smile and baby I was stuck
I still dont know what youve done with me
A grown-up woman should never fall so easily
I feel a kind of fear
When I dont have you near
Unsatisfied, I skip my pride
I beg you dear......

Dont go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Dont go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

Ive had a few little love affairs
They didnt last very long and theyve been pretty scarce
I used to think that was sensible
It makes the truth even more incomprehensible
cause everything is new
And everything is you
And all Ive learned has overturned
What can I do......

Dont go wasting your emotion
Lay all your love on me
Dont go sharing your devotion
Lay all your love on me

LOL. I didn't know all the words to this song until now. I've always liked this song, though. Enjoy!
