De do do do Girl

I was discussing the timeless meaning of The Police with Son #2, the other day. He thought "De do do do, De da da da" was stupid. Until, of course, I asked him if there was anyone who made him feel that way:

Don't think me unkind
Words are hard to find
They're only cheques I've left unsigned
From the banks of chaos in my mind
And when their eloquence escapes me
Their logic ties me up and rapes me

De do do do, de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do, de da da da
Their innocence will pull me through
De do do do, de da da da
Is all I want to say to you
De do do do, de da da da
They're meaningless and all that's true

And then it hit him. He does, indeed, have what he calls "De do do do Girl". He just found out she'll be on his field trip with him.

So He'll be wrapped around her finger?

I think he will. He is resisting it, though, because he believes in waiting until he's out of school to engage in romantic entanglements.

I was thinking about The Police and teenagers on Saturday!

I heard "Can't Stand Loosing You" on the radio and was instantly transported back to my surly, melodramtic, VERY EMOTIONAL, teenage years.

Thinking of crushes/ex-boyfriends/jerky parents who let me sleep over my friend Stephanie's, I'd copy these lyrics "Guess this is our last goodbye, and you don't care, so I won't cry, but you'll be sorry when I'm dead, and all this guilt will BE ON YOUR HEAD!" in my notebook, on desks.

Ah, teenager angst!

Um, that's "Losing" not "Loosing." Damn extra o!
