Sarah Magnolia

June 24, 2005

best day evah – proof of me wearing a bathing suit!

When my husband and I were dating (okay, we never dated – we moved in with each other 6 days after our first kiss,) he used to say that Sugar Magnolia reminded him of me. A long time Grateful Dead fan, this moved me beyond reason. Truth of the matter is that I also used to see myself in the song. I felt like Sarah Magnolia. 6 years, 2 kids, a business and a mortgage later, I’ve been feeling like anything but Sugar Mag, Sarah Mag, frankly, I’ve been feeling about as alive and thrilling as Milk of Mag. Until yesterday.

Yesterday was AMAZING. Just great. And today and tomorrow gonna be even better.
‘Nough said.

Sugar Magnolia blossom’s blooming
Head’s all empty and I don’t care
Saw my baby down by the river
Knew she’d have to come up soon for air

Sweet blossom come on under the willow
We can have high times if you’ll abide
We can discover the wonders of nature
Rolling in the
rushes down by the

She’s got everything delightful
She’s got everything I need
Takes the wheel when I’m seeing double
Pays my ticket when I speed

She come skimming through rays of violet
She can wade in a drop of dew
She don’t come
and I don’t follow

Waits backstage while I sing to you

She can dance a Cajun rhythm
Jump like a
Willys in four wheel
She’s a summer love in the spring, fall and winter
She can make happy any man alive

Sugar magnolia
Ringin’ that blue bell
Caught up in sunlight
Come on out singing
I’ll walk you in the sunshine
Come on honey, come along with me

She’s got everything delightful
She’s got everything I need
A breeze in the pines in the summer night moonlight
Crazy in the sunlight yes indeed

Sometimes when the cuckoo’s crying
When the moon is halfway down
Sometimes when the night is dying
I take me out and I wander round
I wander round

Sunshine daydream
Walk you the tall trees
Going where the wind goes
Blooming like a red
Breathing more freely
Light out singingI’ll walk you in the morning sunshine
Sunshine daydream
Walk you in the sunshine
