Let’s Do Diga Diga Doo

Grow old together?
This suggestion I’d rather
not consider.
Grow old alone;
I could manage just fine.
In love I’d rather
grow young.
Having completed
decades of “to dos” –
to playful mischief let’s say “I do.”

Let’s put on our Sunday best
for no reason at all
and through the park, take a stroll,
leaving others underdressed
and stunned by our youthful glow.

Let’s walk casually and obliviously
toward the nearest puddle
(a large one in front of a crowd will do).
“Surprised” by its sudden appearance,
you’ll pick me up and pretend to carry me across.
Oh, what a gentleman, they will say.
They spoke too soon because in the water
is where you’ll drop me.
Oh, what an ass, their tone will turn.
Not fazed by my soaked stockings,
with my heeled right foot, toward you, water I will thrust.
Stand and take it like a man, you must,
before jumping in.
Let our wet and wild frenzy begin.
Soaked are we, splashing and laughing.
Oh, aren’t they cute, they will bashfully agree.

Dress clothes soaked by a dirty puddle –
no bother.
A puddle on the floor is where our Sunday best
will quickly get tossed.
Let’s spend Sunday undressed,
under the covers,
splashing and laughing.☔😁
If love doesn’t make you sashay your hips, this song should get it done. If this tune doesn’t do the trick, you’re on your own! 🎷🎶 Diga Diga Doo!

Thank you for reading and visiting. Be well. 💗 Michele

  3. What a fun play with words and such a happy ending too. I bet your home and environment are always filled with life’s adventures. Never a boring moment in that environment either, I can just tell from this post alone. The artist in you is so full of happy energy, just have to let it all out to share, can’t hold that in.
