Uncle Albert, my sister and me……….…….

We’re all in a 1968 Ford Country Squire station wagon cruising somewhere across the Midwest on vacation………..Paul McCartney was singing as Uncle Albert, my sister Co and I were singing as ourselves (see above column). This became our personal song, OUR song, although I don’t recall just why. I think there’s a mysticism and philosophy in this song that is unrivaled. But these days, the why is not important, that it is ours is ever so important.

Heads across the sky

Co turned a milestone age today on the 4th of July as she does each year. Her own personal Independence Day! Since she is so important in giving me the independence of spirit to be me (again, see column above) here are the lyrics to Admiral Halsey.

Bet you had some of them WRONG!!!!!

We’re so sorry uncle albert

We’re so sorry if we caused you any pain

We’re so sorry uncle albert

But there’s no one left at home

And I believe I’m gonna rain

We’re so sorry but we havenÂ?t heard a thing all day

We’re so sorry uncle albert

But if anything should happen weÂ?ll be sure to give a ring

We’re so sorry uncle albert

But we haven’t done a bloody thing all day

We’re so sorry uncle albert

But the kettle’s on the boil and we’re so easily called away

Hand across the water (water)

Heads across the sky

Hand across the water (water)

Heads across the sky

Admiral Halsey notified me

He had to have a berth or he couldn’t get to sea

I had another look and I had a cup of tea and butter pie

(the butter wouldn’t melt so I put it in the pie)

Hand across the water (water)

Heads across the sky

Hand across the water (water)

Heads across the sky

Live a little be a gypsy, get around(get around)

Get your feet up off the ground

Live a little, get around

Live a little be a gypsy, get around(get around)

Get your feet up off the ground

Live a little, get around

Hand across the water (water)

Heads across the sky

Hand across the water (water)

Heads across the sky
