05/25/16 - NNHS Newsletter - Oh Boy!

It is best to love wisely, no doubt;
but to love foolishly is better than
not to be able to love at all.

- William Makepeace Thackeray
 (18 July 1811 - 24 Dec 1863)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   

   Here's a 1957 Golden Oldie for today.

BONUS - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YwHrx0r0t2s - Oh Boy! - Buddy Holly

     

From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Oh,_Boy!_%28The_Crickets_song%29

"Oh, Boy!" was written by Sonny West, Bill Tilghman and Norman Petty. The song was originally recorded by Sonny West in the late 1950s but failed to achieve any commercial success. It was later recorded by Buddy Holly and the Crickets between June 29 and July 1 in 1957, at Petty Studios in Clovis, New Mexico, with Holly singing lead vocals and The Picks providing backing vocals. The song is in an A-A-B-A format with a 12-bar blues verse and an 8-bar bridge. (Holly also covered another West song, "Rave On".)...

He will keep your little ones warm on those breezy but brisk Spring days, but he wont get them all sweaty like an acrylic hat would. The hat pattern is written in four sizes, 3-6mo, 6-12mo, 12-24 mo and 3-5 years, but can easily be modified to fit anyone."

From www.ajokeaday.com - 05/24/16:

My wife and I went to a "Dude Ranch" while in Texas.

The cowboy preparing the horses asked if she wanted a Western or English saddle, and she asked what the difference was. He told her one had a horn and one didn't.

"Well," she replied, "the one without the horn is fine. I don't expect we'll run into too much traffic."

All of my love
All of my kissin'
You don't know what you've been a-missin'
Oh boy, when you're with me
Oh boy, the world can see
That you, were meant, for me

All of my life
I've been a-waitin'
Tonight there'll be no...hesitatin'
Oh boy, when you're with me
Oh boy, the world can see
That you, were meant, for me

Stars appear and shadows are falling
You can hear my heart a-calling
A little bit a-lovin' makes everything right
I'm gonna see my baby tonight

All of my love
All of my kissin'
You don't know what you've been a-missin'
Oh boy, when you're with me
Oh boy, the world can see
That you, were meant, for me

Dum-dee-dum-dum
Oh boy
Dum-dee-dum-dum
Oh boy

[Guitar Solo] (ooh-ooh-ooh-oooooh)

All of my life

Tonight there'll be no...hesitatin'
Oh boy, when you're with me
Oh boy, the world can see
That you, were meant, for me

Stars appear and shadows are falling
You can hear my heart a-calling
A little bit a-lovin' makes everything right
I'm gonna see my baby tonight

All of my love
All of my kissin'
You don't know what you've been a-missin'
Oh boy, when you're with me
Oh boy, the world can see
That you, were meant, for me
