Let's Take a Trip

Recommended Posts

I was making up an entire trip around the world based on songs about specific places. So let's go. :grin:

We'll start out at Our House(Madness), go down Thunder Road (Springsteen) to the airport, where we'll say Goodbye Sky Harbor (Jimmy Eat World) and fly down to Mexico (Roger Clyne).

From there... (your turn)

After Riding the Storm Out, we spent Six Months In a Leaky Boat trying to get to Katmandu where we wasted more time Waiting On A Friend by having One Bourbon, One Scotch, One Beer.

We stayed in Blue Hawaii for two lovely Seasons In The Sun. It had been A Long December and it became Cold As Ice, and we got Tired Of Waiting for The Perfect Wave. So, we decided to Get In The Van and hit the Road To Rio.

If I Go to Rio, then I must be in Brazil. While there, I decided to check out The Girl from Ipanema. Heading south, I got sad, so Don't Cry for Me Argentina. So I sailed across the Atlantic and found myself in Africa.

Meanwhile, some of our Songfacts friends decided to leave their Sweet Home Alabama, so they bought a ticket on the Mississippi Queen and headed for the City of New Orleans where they moved into The House of the Rising Sun.

The boat got Shipwrecked and we ended up Living On An Island for a short time. The Lady In Red told us, "Don't Pay The Ferryman". We didn't. We were eventually rescued by Jacques Cousteau in the Calypso and taken to safety in Old England Town.

(How's that one?....THREE Chris DeBurgh references in a row in one paragraph! I do apologize.)

While there in Old England Town, we visited Cherry Hill Park and sat on some England Swings, then we hit the Interstate again and rode On A Bus To St. Cloud to celebrate Independence Day, all in One Week.

While looking for the House At Pooh Corner we were told by The Old Man Down The Road to take a left at The Seven Bridges Road, and continue on to Main Street. He said we'd find the Teddy Bear Down On The Corner. By the time he was done it just seemed to be a Ball Of Confusion.

After all that walking we decided to take a Magic Carpet Ride and traveled Back To The USSR where the snow was so deep we had to take a Nantucket Sleighride. It was so very cold that we were glad when we were Back In The USA.

When we got back I was Lookin Out My Backdoor and noticed there was a Bad Moon Rising, so we had to Run Through The Jungle. When we came out, we noticed that we were all stuck in Lodi again... (All CCR :P )
