Say When

Despite some here and there work jaunts to Milan, I don't know a lick of Italian. This may explain my minor error in belting out Kwanza, Kwazna, Kwanza while getting dressed this morning. Overhearing my show-stopping performance J asked me to repeat the little ditty and I, of course, enthusiastically obliged. Without missing a beat and doubled over in laughter, my nitpicky dear husband noted the proper lyrics were Quando, Quando, Quando. Details aside, I believe more people should name their children Engelbert Humperdinck these days. Sure beats the heck out of Apple, Destry, Honor or Pilot Inspektor.

Now on to a kicky 1960s pop song about waiting for love...not celebrating an African holiday.

Okay, that made me laugh out loud!
I am a lyric-mangler myself, so I totally appreciate.

I've loved following your adventures in KL - so fun! Glad you kept this spot alive, too!

nothing like being busted belting out the wrong lyrics!

Michael Buble and Nelly Furtado have a great modern duet of this song! I love it.

Ha ha you have me giggling over here. I'm pretty good with song lyrics, but my sister is a bit like you and just says what she thinks she is hearing. It's never right.

Hey, it's not about being right - it's about being confident!

Courtney said...

Paige: I love that version, too! But then again I just love Michael Buble. And Nelly Furtado.

Mary Laura: I like your style!

Well at least I know if I get Courtney a gelee (head wrap for women) to wear during Kwanza she will at least look the part as she floats around singing her new song :p

Courtney, I am dying laughing here! That song is the ultimate grocery store/elevator music, yet I still love it anyway. Hilarious!

That’s really funny! I myself commit lyrical errors all the time! But it doesn’t stop me from singing it. LOL!
