Lordy! Guess what I heard

In early June former FBI director James Comey’s use of  the word “Lordy” had that term trending on Twitter and lots of Lordy meme’s popping up on social media. At the time I was sure there was an old song from my girlhood with that word in the title; I had memories of singing “Oh Lordy” frequently, loudly and heartily whenever the song played on radio. Unfortunately, many Google and YouTube searches later, I could not find my “Oh Lordy” song. Until, a little brainwave made me use the only fragment of the lyrics I could remember as my search term — and what do you know, Volare had somehow become Oh Lordy to my young ears, an error that had gone uncorrected all these years.

There is a way we can leave all the shadows behind us.

Race AGAINST Time

Take your time, my one dear time race
Time take time.

Fools fly in where angels
Cruise in time.

Only the setting sun
Goes down west.

It ain’t love or rapture,
Race capture.
