    Hi, y'all .........

    Let's stir up this board some more! What do you think about that??? It's been kinda quiet around here lately. :(

    I checked the "archives" (for songs), and I didn't find the above names: "boys" and "girls" anywhere.

    So let's have fun with a new song game!!!!! :p:p:p:p


    WHERE THE BOYS ARE, Connie Francis


    A BOY NAMED SUE, Johnny Cash

    THE GIRL FROM IPANEMA, Astrud Gilberto

    Enjoy the videos, and add your selections, please.

    Hugs, Diane :D

    OK, here's another Irish song. The Boys of Killybegs.
    Killybegs in a fishing village near Donegal.
    I want a Girl (Just like the girl that married dear old Dad.) A
    song from a century ago.

    Boys and Girls Come out to Play. A nursery rhyme and song.
    A Man Chases a Girl (until she catches him). Another Irving
    Berlin song.

    Hammerstein and Romberg.

    The Boy Next Door, from Meet Me in St. Louis.

    One Good Boy Gone Wrong from the operetta The Desert
    Song. You can hear it on Youtube sung by Mario Lanza
    and Judith Raskin. I talked to Judith after a Met
    performance 50 years ago. Mario was already gone.
    Died at age 38.

    It's A Long Way to Tipperary, to the sweetest girl I know.
    When Johnny Comes Marching Home Again, The men
    will cheer and the boys will shout.

    American Girl by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers.

    The Girl from Utah, a musical a century ago. "She's a girl
    from Utah, in the U.S.A., but on an early day she'll marry
    dandy Sandy!"

    Soul, I found a translator on line. Sounds like the boys and
    girls are playing ring a rosy. How are you feeling these days?
