All About a song IV: All together now!!

Pearl 001

Pearl By Hudley

There is a fresh graffiti / slang near the front of my home. I posted an image of it on Facebook. I just wanted to see the reaction that I would get when I asked others how they read it. This graffiti / slang takes me back to the 1970s. When the graffiti was usually lyrics from a song. I had a boyfriend in middle school. He was older and in High School. I remember the excitement  around school when such lyrics showed up on the wall near classes. He broke in the night before and he spray painted the wall with these lyrics,

“Black white green red
Can I take my friend to bed…”

He got my attention and my innocence soon enough. Yet I have not told anyone until today…. that he did it for me. We all need to feel special now and then. This song always makes me smile. Looking back at the 1970s: songs and fires in trash cans rumbled and tuned us kids on!! No hard feelings!!

One song to the next…all about a song!!
