Some Beach

This week has been a loooooong one. Being sick makes the days drag on forever. I was somewhat sick last week, but it has most definitely gotten worse. I've been fighting some serious cold/sinus symptoms for a week and a half. This morning I woke up with swollen glands in my throat. Definitely not fun, and decided it was time to see a doctor. In addition to my being sick, I have started to ache for a vacation. Maybe being pretty much trapped in the house has done me in. I want to be somewhere warm and pretty without all this pain and congestion. Oh, some beach...somewhere...would be wonderful. Sadly, I don't foresee myself making it to the beach anytime soon, but I do hope to see Blake Shelton very soon...hence, how perfect this song of the week is!

"Some Beach"
Blake Shelton

Driving down the interstate
Running thirty minutes late
Singin' Margaritaville and minding my own
Some foreign car drivin' dude with the road rage attitude
Pulled up beside me talkin' on his cell phone
He started yelling at me like I did something wrong
He flipped me the bird an' then he was gone

Some beach
There's a big umbrella casting shade over an empty chair
Palm trees are growin' and a warm breezes a blowing
I picture myself right there
On Some beach, somewhere

I circled the parkin' lot, tryin' to find a spot
Just big enough I could park my old truck
A man with a big cigar was getting into his car
I stopped and I waited for him to back up
From out of no where a Mercedes Benz
Came cruisin' up and whipped right in

Some beach
There's no where to go when you got all day to get there
There's cold margaritas and hot Senoritas smiling with long dark hair
On some beach

I sat in that waiting room
It seemed like all afternoon
The nurse finally said doc's ready for you
you're not gonna feel a thing we'll give you some novicane
That tooth will be fine in a minute or two
But he stuck that needle down deep in my gum
And he started drillin' before I was numb

Some beach
There's a beautiful sunset burning up the atmosphere
There's music and dancing and lovers romancing
In the salty evening air
On some beach
On some beach, somewhere
South Beach (Martha's Vineyard)
