Gypsy Road – Song Lyric Sunday – Traveling on …

Today’s SLS prompt is travel type words, such as ‘street, avenue, road, boulevard, lane, drive’. Lots of songs to choose from! Thanks, Jim!

This song kind of touches on the fact that touring with a band is harder than it seems. The constant traveling, to keep up with their commitments, the loneliness of being on the road, and sometimes just wanting to go home, wears a person down. But still you do it over and over for the money and the fame. Is it worth it? Maybe…maybe not.

 

“Gypsy Road”, by Cinderella, is a single from their 1987 album, “Long Cold Winter”. It was written by Tom Keifer, and is on the Mercury label.

I used to be now I’m not what you see, Lord I try
And now it seems all those dreams have come true, but they’re passing me by
Some fast talkin’ mama for a dollar put a smile on my face
I’m drivin’ all night
I end up in the same old place

My gypsy road can’t take me home
I drive all night just to see the light
My gypsy road can’t take me home
I keep on pushin’ cause it feels all right

And who’s to care if I grow my hair to the sky
I’ll take a wish and a prayer cross my fingers ’cause I always get by
Some fast talkin’ jerk for a dollar wiped the smile off my face
I’m drivin’ all night
Just to keep the rat in the race

My gypsy road can’t take me home
I drive all night just to see the light
My gypsy road can’t take me home
I keep on pushin’ cause it feels all right

Sometimes I feel so old
Got my lights burnin’ bright
But I’m lookin’ pretty sold
Sometimes I feel so cold
So cold
Let’s go

Got to get on home
My gypsy road can’t take me home
My gypsy road can’t take me home, t-t-take me

My gypsy road can’t take me home
I drive all night just to see the light
My gypsy road can’t take me home
I keep on pushin’ cause it feels all right

My gypsy road can’t take me home
I drive all night just to see the light
My gypsy road can’t take me home
I keep on p-p-pushin’

My gypsy road
My gypsy road
My gypsy road
My gypsy road

My gypsy road

My gypsy road can’t take me home
I drive all night just to see the light
My gypsy road can’t take me home

Now, I’m not really sure what we’re supposed to do with this…Cinderella Today prompt.

Here’s a cute clip from the animated movie of Cinderella, and a couple of quotes from it.

 

It can do magic – believe it or not  ~ Fairy Godmother

The thing-a-ma-bob that does the job is bibbidi-bobbidi-boo ~ Fairy Godmother

Now, to bring it up to date…

Scene: Bedroom

Cyndi: (crying & ranting) “Those step-sisters of mine are bullies! They make fun of me, and order me around. They’re not the boss of me! I’m calling CPS”

Suddenly a bright orb floats in through the open window.

Cyndi: What the @!*#?

Orb (turning into Ru Paul): “I’m your fairy god-mother. Girl, stop being a snowflake. Put your big girl britches on, because I’m sending you to a fancy dance. You’ll dance with the stars, and win the mirror ball with the Prince.”

Cyndi: I don’t have anything good to wear to a fancy dance.

FG-M: “Where’s your phone? It’s magic, you know.” (takes the phone from Cyndi, and taps in a website address) “Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo … here ya go…Amazon! Order whatever you want.” (In this tale, shipping takes only seconds)

Cyndi: (putting on gorgeous ball gown) I love it! Thank you Fairy God-Mother!

FG-M: Now, Shante, Shashay away. (floats out the window)

Cyndi: Turns on her laptop, finds the little blue bird, and starts Tweeting to all her friends. Takes a selfie with her dress, sends it to Instagram, because you know if there’s no picture, it didn’t happen.

As for tagging someone else, I don’t know who really likes to do these that haven’t already done this one, so if you’d like to play along, consider yourself tagged. 🙂

This Cinderella watch is one I’ve had since I was a kid. It’s not the original band, though, as it wore out. It is a wind up watch, but doesn’t wind any more, but you can still move the watch hands.
