Aloha-oe, aloha-oe, e ke onaona noho i ka lipo

De tu casa a la mía, Cielito lindo, no hay más que un paso

Her eyes were like that of a cat in the dark, That hypnotized me with love. She was a gypsy woman.

I'm gonna get you on a slow boat to China, all to myself alone.

Gams turn on Zeus, wow! What a dude. Hera's his wife.

I'm the Sheik of Araby, Your love belongs to me. At night when you're asleep, Into your tent I'll creep.

When I'm calling you, Oo-Oo-Oo-Oo, Oo-Oo-Oo-Oo Will you answer too? Oo-Oo-Oo-Oo, Oo-Oo-Oo-Oo

I'm strong to the finich, Cause I eats me spinach. I'm Popeye the Sailor Man.

How much is that doggie in the window? I do hope that doggie's for sale.

#17 Hit the submit button too soon. My daughter took me to Earth Fare, a new grocery store that specializes in organic and hormone free foods. It's right next to the University campus. There are some things about my college days I really miss. If a young guy wants to meet young women, that's the place.I almost felt senile.

#18 University students can afford such fare nowadays, Deacon Blues? Times have changed -- I could just about afford $0.25 donuts and equally expensive Campbell's soup as my daily fare, and lots of cornflakes with milk.
