Thursday Theme Song: there is nothing...



I had a different song all set to post for this week's
Thursday Theme Song
but for Wednesday's challenge I posted about my all-time favorite movie for the writers' group Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, and decided to feature a song from that movie instead.



The lyrics of this song I chose for TTS reminded me that my husband plans to watch the Super Bowl this weekend. So, guys, this one's for you:
*

There is nothing like a game
Nothing in this world—
There is nothing you can name
That is anything like a game.
Now suppose the game ain't great
Or completely free from flaws,
Or exciting as a sky-dive
Or a gift from Santy Claus,
It's a waste of time to worry
Over things that they have not,
Be thankful for the things they've got!
There are no books like a game
And nothing looks like a game
There is no drink like a game
Or makes you think like a game—
There ain't a thing that's wrong with any man here
That can't be cured by putting him near
An exciting football end-of-the-season game!

Too too perfect, Kay! My son and husband are sports fans too. Me, uh uh. I did love South Pacific though.

Love what you did with this song. Perfect for the upcoming Game. I am not a big sports fan. My husband is not a big sports fan either, but does enjoy watching a football game every now and then. I do like watching the Super Bowl for the commercials!

Well then, does that mean you'll get the day off? Or do you have to watch too?

@ Friko — Have to watch? Heavens, no. I'm going to hide in the back bedroom with a book. Hopefully I'll fall asleep!
