TGIF

Time comes and
Goes
Indeed
Friday is here again !

Thank God it’s Friday.

The activities to do on a weekend is numerous.

Start the weekend with drinks and party, sleep in the next day.

Play chasing game with your dog or go to a local market.

Do something extreme like bungee jumping or eat a giant gourmet burger.

Spend time with the family, cook a meal or put your feet up, enjoy a movie at home.

Dress up for a theme party or dress down for a dip in the sea.

Do something or just do nothing.

The list is endless, TGIF.

Local time check is past midnight,
Friday had come and gone.
What’s interesting at your end this weekend?
Bungee jumping anyone?

TGIF …… Time for oldies but goodies

Banks of the Ohio

“Banks of the Ohio” ( Laws F5, Roud 157) is a 19th-century murder ballad, written by unknown authors, in which “Willie” invites his young lover for a walk during which she rejects his marriage proposal. Once they are alone on the river bank, he murders the young woman. It is also known by the longer title Down on the Banks of the Ohio.

Click on the video above to enjoy the song sung by Olivia Newton John and sing along with the lyrics below.

One of my favourite oldies. Do you like oldies?

I asked my love to take a walk
To take a walk, just a little walk
Down beside where the waters flow
Down by the banks of the Ohio

And only say that you’ll be mine
In no others’ arms entwine
Down beside where the waters flow
Down by the banks of the Ohio

I held a knife against his breast
As into my arms he pressed
He cried “my love, don’t you murder me
I’m not prepared for eternity”

I wandered home ‘tween twelve and one
I cried, “My God, what have I done?”
I’ve killed the only man I love
He would not take me for his bride

And only say that you’ll be mine
In no others’ arms entwine
Down beside where the waters flow
Down by the banks of the Ohio
