I'm glad to be alive

When the sun is smiling and I am warm
I feel a part of nature and I'm glad to be alive.
And when the sky is cloudless and as blue as babies' eyes
I love to feel the heat of day, I love to be outside.
But also when the friendly sun is hidden by the storm
and rain is pelting hard upon the flower beds outside,
I'm happy for I know that soon the day will dry its eyes,
so, wet or fine, I'm always very glad to be alive.


My Sharon-uh by THE SHMUK
Dedicated to Ariel Sharon
Ooo my little pretty one, pretty one
You know you must be out of your mind Sharon-uh
Will you make the motor run, motor run,
do you think you're just doin' fine Sharon-uh
Time for you to stop give it up such a dirty fight
Can't you get it up can't you stop are you going blind
My My My Sharon-uh
My My My Sharon-uh
My My My Sharon-uh
My My My Sharon-uh
Come a little closer huh you're a Hun
Close enough to look in my eyes Sharon-uh
People haven't got no food see their blood
Running down the length of their thigh Sharon-uh
Time for you to stop give it up such a dirty fight
Can't you get it up can't you stop are you going blind
My My My Sharon-uh
My My My Sharon-uh
When you gonna see the light see the light
Is it just a mater of time Sharon-uh
Do you think it's destiny, destiny
Or is it just a game in your mind Sharon-uh
Time for you to stop give it up such a dirty fight
Can't you get it up can't you stop are you going blind
My My My Sharon-uh
My My My Sharon-uh
With apologies to The Knack (My Sharona)

You really should check out the link at the bottom of my sharon-uh if you love to Karaokee. It's sure to be a holiday sing along pleaser. Also the link to the Amanac site which is directly underneath takes awhile to boot up because their is so much on the site. So they have a little link where you can check your tarot for free or read your I ching. I did it, and it was pretty fun. Also, I don't agree with everything this site talks about but it is such a diverse site that I think anyone would go away think wow, and weird. Also their is a fabulous link to children's pages. I checked out the one on calendars for kids that was absolutely amazing. It goes into Einstein's theories, with links to Aztec and Mayan calendars, our calendar standard, time and our loop holes. Anyway, please check it out even if you are not a kid!
