…restart and rebuild the Caribbean from the muddy ruin. This song by a British African-Caribbean group from a time ago is for all who have to get their footing again after the storms.

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.

I think the ongoing courtroom saga of another (once?) elder statesman actor made My Mind drift – comparatively – to Sir Sidney Poitier and of course, with that came flashbacks to “To Sir With Love.”
If you wanted the moon
I would try to make a start
But I would rather you let me give my heart
To Sir, with love
Be there in morning. Singing. Good morning Sunshine.
Have a good day!
