BONUS #2 - http://www.beatlestube.net/video.php?title=Ob-La-Di,+Ob-La-Da 


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ob-La-Di,_Ob-La-Da

"Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" is a song written mainly by Paul McCartney and credited to Lennon/McCartney and released by The Beatles on their 1968 album The Beatles (also referred to as The White Album). It was released as a single that same year in many countries, but not in the United Kingdom, nor in the United States until 1976.

The song was written, primarily by Paul McCartney , around the time that highlife and reggae were beginning to become popular in Britain. The tag line "ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, bra" was an expression that Nigerian conga player Jimmy Scott-Emuakpor, an acquaintance of McCartney, used. The song is in the key of B flat and written in 4/4...[citation needed]

  From Judy Phillips Allen ('66) of VA - 02/06/15 - "Too Cool Not to Pass On - Only 1.5 Minutes":

Enjoy!

Too Cool Not to Pass On....

Only 1.5 Minutes....


For those who hate to wait:

Everyone hates waiting at the pedestrian traffic light. Many simply run across the street when they find a break in traffic. But that’s not safe. To make waiting more pleasant, Germany’s Smart Car invented the dancing traffic light. Instead of featuring a static "red man" as the Don’t Walk symbol, their dancing light showcases a real, dynamic dancing man. The dance was actually created in real time by dancing volunteers.... Filmed in Lisbon....

FINALLY:

From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 02/06/15:

A surgeon was checking on a patient who'd had a hernia operation three days before.

The doctor asked the man why he had not gotten out of bed.

"I hurt," the man said. "You don’t know how it feels."

"I know exactly how it feels," the doctor said. "I had the same procedure last month, and I was back at work two days later. There’s no difference in our operations."

"Oh yes, there is," said the patient. "You had a different surgeon."

Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

Written mainly by Paul McCartney (b. 18 June 1942) and credited to Lennon/McCartney, 1968

Recorded by The Beatles, 1968, 1976


Desmond has his barrow in the market place...
Molly is the singer in a band...
Desmond says to Molly "Girl, I like your face"
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand...
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!...
Lala how the life goes on...
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!...
Lala how the life goes on.

Desmond takes a trolley to the jewelry store...
Buys a twenty carat golden ring...
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door...
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing...
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!...
Lala how the life goes on...
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!...
Lala how the life goes on.

In a couple of years they have built a home sweet home,
With a couple of kids running in the yard,
Of Desmond and Molly Jones... (Ha ha ha ha ha)

Happy ever after in the market place...
Desmond lets the children lend a hand...
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face...
And in the evening she still sings it with the band...
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!...
Lala how the life goes on...
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!...
Lala how the life goes on.

In a couple of years they have built a home sweet home,
With a couple of kids running in the yard,
Of Desmond and Molly Jones...

And in the evening she's a singer with the band...
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!...
Lala how the life goes on...
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da, life goes on, brah!...
Lala how the life goes on.


And if you want some fun...take Ob-la-di-bla-da (Thank you)
