You're Timeless to Me & Without Love...

Hopefully, you were able to access the link I posted in yesterday's Life with Lynnie (LwL) entry, to the song I Know Where I've Been, from the movie/musical Hairspray.  If you did, I'm sure you'll agree with me that was a great song.

Another song I enjoyed from the musical reflected how life changes and how people change as they age, but was representative of how true love never fades.  The song is entitled, You're Timeless to Me sung by Christopher Walken and John Travolta.  Here is a Youtube link:

In case you cannot access the link, here are the lyrics:

You're Timeless to Me (written by Marc Shaimann and Scott Wittman)

Wilbur:styles keepa changin
the worlds rearrangin
but edna your timeless to me
hemlines are shorter
a beer costs a quarter
but time cannot take what comes free
your like a stinky old cheese babe
just gettin riper with age
your like a fatal disease babe
but theres no cure
so let this fever rage
some folks cant stand it
say time is like a bandit
but i take the opposite view
cause when i need a lift
time brings a gift
another day with you
a twist or a waltz
its all the same schmaltz
with just a change in the scenery
you'll never be old hat
thats that!
you're timeless to me

Edna:Oh Wilbur i love you!
fads keep a fadin'
castros invading
but wilber you're timeless to me
hairdos are higher
mine feels like barbed wire
but you say im chic as can be!
you're like a rare vintage ripple
a vintage they'll never forget
so pour me a teeny weenie triple
and we can toast the fact
we aint dead yet!
i cant stop eating
you're hairline's receding
and soon you'll have nothing at all
so you'll wear a wig
while i roast a pig
hey! pass the geritol!
glenn miller had brass
that chubby checker's a gas
but they all pass eventually
you'll never be passe
hip horray!
you're timeless to me!

(Musical Interlude)
Wilbur:you're like a broken down Chevy
Edna:all i need is a fresh coat of paint
Wilbur:and edna,
you got me goin hot and heavy
you're fat and old
but baby
boring you ain't!

Both:some folks dont get it
but we never fret it
cause we know that time
is our friend
yeah, its plain to see
that you're stuck with me
until the bitter end
and we got a kid
who's blowin the lid
off the turnblad family tree

Edna:you'll always hit the spot
you're timeless to me

Wilbur:you'll always be du jour
mon amour
you're timeless to me

Edna:you'll always be first string
Both:you're timeless to me
Edna:you're timeless to me
Wilbur:you're timeless to me
Both:you're timeless to me.

I apologize for the length of today's entry, but I must post the final song I intend to tell you about.  It's entitled Without Love, and is sung by a variety of singers in the movie/musical.  Here's a Youtube link:

Once again, if you can't access the above link, here are the lyrics:

Without Love (written by  Marc Shaimann & Scott Wittman)

LINK: Once i was a selfish fool
Who never understood
never looked inside myself
Though on the outside, i looked good!
Then we met and you made me
The man i am today
Tracy, i'm in love with you
No matter what you weigh

LINK - TRACY(& ENSEMBLE)Without love
Life is like the seasons with
No summer
Without love
Life is rock 'n' roll without
A drummer
Tracy, i'll be yours forever
'Cause I never wanna be
Without love
Tracy, never set me free
No, i ain't lyin'
Never set me free, Tracy,
No, no, no!!

SEAWEEDLiving in the ghetto
Black is everywhere ya go
Who'd 've thought i'd love a girl
With skin as white as winter's snow

PENNYIn my ivory tower
Life was just a hostess snack
But now i've tasted chocolate
And i'm never going back

PENNY & SEAWEED & ENSEMBLE'Cause without love
Life is like a beat that you can't follow
Without love
Life is doris day at the Apollo
Darling, i'll be yours forever
'Cause i never wanna be
Without love
So darlin never set me free

PENNY & SEAWEEDOh, I'm yours forever
Never set me free

LINKIf i'm left without my babydoll
I don't kno wat ill do

TRACYLink, i've got to break out
So that i can get my hands on you

SEAWEEDAnd girl, if i can't touch you
and i'm gonna lose control

PENNYSeaweed, you're my black white knight
I've found my blue-eyed soul

SEAWEED & ENSEMBLESweet freedom is our goal
LINKTrace, i wanna kiss ya!
TRACYLet me out at the next toll
ALL'Cause without love
SEAWEEDLife is like a prom that won't invite us
ALLWithout love
LINKLife's getting my big break and laryngitis
ALLWithout love
PENNYLife's a '45' when you can't buy it
ALLWithout love
TRACYLife is like my mother on a diet
ALLLike a week that's only mondays
Only ice cream never sundaes
Like a circle with no center
Like a door marked "do not enter!"

Darlin i'll be yours forever
'Cause i never wanna be
Without love
now you've captured me
without love
I surrender happily
without love
Seaweed never set me free
no no no
I ain't lying
never set me free
no no no
no i don't wanna live
without love
Darlin you have best believed me,
never leave me
without love!


What can I say?  Love makes the world go 'round, or at least that's what some people say.  No one wants to be left alone, without love.  At least, no one I know.  Unfortunately, some of us are.

As if it's not bad enough about being left alone, without love, tomorrow is the biggest love day of the year.  Valentine's Day.

Until next time...
