Helen Espinosa’s theme this week for Song Lyric Sunday is “’90’s Music”.
That was a time when, as a single parent, I home schooled my son, earned my living as a licensed Child Care Professional, and costumed a Children’s Theater group where all the shows were Musicals. The only radio stations we listened to in the car were either Oldies (1950s , ’60s, and ’70s) or Classical.
some of the ’90’s pop music was inescapable, and some of that filled me with deep nostalgia. To this day, Ricky Martin’s Livin’ la Vida Loca (1999) brings back memories from a past before parenthood. A past I will never repeat. Which is probably just as well. 😉
Lyrics from A Z Lyrics
I feel a premonition that girl’s gonna make me fall.
She’s into new sensations new kicks in the candle light.
She’s got a new addiction for every day and night.She’ll make you take your clothes off and go dancing in the rain.
She’ll make you live her crazy life but she’ll take away your pain
like a bullet to your brain. Come On![CHORUS:]
Upside, inside out she’s livin la vida loca
She’ll push and pull you down, livin la vida loca
Her lips are devil red and her skin’s the color mocha
She will wear you out livin la vida loca Come On!
Livin la vida loca, Come on!
She’s livin la vida loca.
Woke up in New York City in a funky cheap hotel
She took my heart and she took my money
she must’ve slipped me a sleeping pill
She never drinks the water and makes you order French Champagne
Once you’ve had a taste of her you’ll never be the same
Yeah, she’ll make you go insane.
She’ll make you take your clothes off and go dancing in the rain.
She’ll make you live her crazy life
but she’ll take away your pain like a bullet to your brain. Come On!
