Musical Monday

I had such a great weekend. Jason and I took the girls up to my parents' house to pick up the boys. While we were there, we did lots of date stuff. It was sooooo nice! With school and work and life, we don't get to spend nearly enough time together. So getting a whole weekend to just hang out and enjoy one another's company was really awesome.

On Friday night we went to see a friend's play. It was a series of one act plays written by my friend Sean O'Donnell and the last one included another friend of mine (Tom Protulipac). It was at the New Olde Bank Theatre and it was really delightful. (You can read a review here.) Tina was also able to attend, and we had a wonderful time. We stayed talking to Sean and Tom until quite late and it was just a really good time.

Then on Saturday night, Jason and I went to see Dave Matthews Band. It. Was. Awesome. They played for 3 hours and it was just incredible. I wish I was a little more familiar with their songs, since I like to sing along when I go to a concert, but even not knowing everything, it was just fantastic. The band was incredibly tight and they all looked like they were having the time of their life. Watching people engaged and entertained by what they do is just a beautiful thing, and I got that in spades at the concert.

So, even though I just did a Dave Matthews song last week, I'm pulling another one this week. (I'm going to pull a technicality and say that last week was a Dave Matthews solo piece and this week is something from Dave Matthews Band.)

This is one of my favorites from their latest cd, Big Whiskey and the GrooGrux King. I love how they move so seamlessly between the heavier verse/chorus into the light and pretty bridge. Plus, it's just a pretty sexy song. It was a blast to see them and if you get the chance, I highly recommend it! Enjoy Shake Me Like a Monkey!

The thing I like about you 
Is the way you 
The way that you do 
The thing I like about you 

God and the devil alone 
Could not have made you up 
The two must have worked 
As one together 

So good just wanna eat you up 
Nothing like the real thing 
Lick your sticky fingers boy 
And sing for your dinner sing 

Come on pretty baby 
Make me lose my mind 
Everybody get together 
Gonna make love shine 

Do you know what it is 
To feel the light of love inside you? 
And all the darkness falls away 
If you feel the way I feel 
Then believe we have the answer 
I've been searching for tonight 
Love me baby love me baby 
Shake me like a monkey baby 
Forever I'm yours yours yours 
Yeah forever I'm 

I, I, I 
Can't stop thinking about you 
Yeah yeah yeah 
Why would I want to 

I like my coffee with toast and jelly 
But I'd rather be licking 
From your back to your belly 
I, I, I 
Think I'm going to 

Do you know what it is 
To feel the light of love inside you? 
And all the darkness falls away 
If you feel the way I feel 
Then believe we have the answer 
I've been searching for tonight 
Love me baby love me baby 
Shake me like a monkey baby 
Forever I'm yours yours yours 
Yeah forever I'm 

Cigarettes and coffee 
Broken hearts and being lonely 
Little girls and ponies 
Things that go together 

Yes and no 
You have to choose 
Romeo and Juliet 
The hang man and his noose 
You and me we go good together 

Kiss kiss make a wish 
Hope that it comes true 
I ain't waiting for the world to change 
Gonna change the world for you 

Come on pretty baby 
Make you lose your mind 
Everybody get together 
Gonna make love shine 

Do you know what it is 
To feel the light of love inside you? 
And all the darkness falls away 
If you feel the way I feel 
Then believe we have the answer 
I've been searching for tonight 
Love me baby love me baby 
Shake me like a monkey baby 
Forever I'm yours yours yours 
Yeah forever I'm 

Come on everybody 
Make me lose my mind 
Everybody get together 
Gonna make love shine
