I Wish that I Was Jessie's Girl

No wait that's . . . "I wish that I had Jessie's Girl"

There are a few new shows on, apparently it's the hot new thing, to have people sings songs, see if they truly know the words, or just kind of make them up. I watched one tonight, and it brought back memories. I was thinking that if my daddy were around this would be a show right up his alley because he was the kind of guy to sing at the top of his lungs off key and with the wrong words, it never slowed him. The guy who was on the show tonight reminded me of my daddy, and got me to thinking about him, and my appreciation for oldies. On Firday nights on the way home with him the music that was always on was oldies and he would sing his heart out, it could always put a smile on my face. Thought a lot of the time I was probably smiling and laughing because he was singing the wrong words!! Not to brag or anything but in my family I'm usually the one who knows the words to the song, I'm usually correcting whoever I'm with that's singing. Though I do have my faults, for examply the song above, for the longest time I thought it was "I wish that I was Jessie's Girl" only to realize a few weeks ago that it's in fact "had," but give me some credit, the songs could be sung either way!!! I've got other songs that I sing my own words to, and really, maybe it's because I like my lyrics better!! Though my default song is Joy to the World by Three Dog Night, if I had to sing in front of people that would be my jam!

This one's just for my sister!!

you are so funny, as i was reading that blog i thought of that song and i was going to write it in a comment but you beat me to it. . . maybe that's something in mike that i found that's like dad. . . can't remember the words to any song to save his life. . ask him to sing twinkle twinkle little star. . . though he is sweet because we decided alani doesnt care what words he sings, as long as he's singing to her! friday nights and oldies. . good times and good memories! it can not be i wish i WAS jessie's girl because its a guy singing it. . . so no, it can't really go either way, nice try though!
