The First Monday of a New Year's Work Week and Song Lyrics

Tomorrow is Monday. The first Monday of 2010. Monday. I have to work tomorrow morning. Just keep thinking about the paycheck. Just keep thinking about the paycheck. Just keep thinking....

Mondays are rarely good in my job. Usually the calls swamp us and I can barely have enough time to breathe much less think or grab a snack here and there. Since I don't have a lunch break, well, I'm starving by the time the day ends. Still, as of January 15th, *knock on wood*, I will have been in my job and with my current company for an entire year. This pleases me greatly. It gives me hope and helps me settle some weird turmoil deep down inside. Hopefully I can continue to do a good enough job and stay where I am for a while longer.

It has taken a lot of thinking these past couple of weeks preparing for Christmas and then New Year's (which didn't pan out as I had hoped), but there is a plan for obtaining the goals I've mentioned. It is a good plan, I think, and do-able. The do-ability part of the plan is actually something that is encouraging me at the moment, where before had been a shadow of lurking doubt.

I am not "pumped", but I am...peaceful about 2010 and the things that should be accomplished. I am not even going to put an "if" in that statement. This is going to be my year.

Today, when I opened up the browser there was a new "most downloaded song" and after listening to it twice I actually wondered who was downloading it. The song isn't bad. It is catchy and has a fantastic dance beat to it, but it isn't for grammar school kids or tweens in the least, and possibly not some teens because, well, it encourages partying a wee bit much. It is called "TiK ToK" by Ke$sha, yes, this is how she spells her stage name.

It took a little searching to find a site that actually had the lyrics to the song and I listed again to make sure they were as close to correct as possible. They are as follows:

Wake up in the morning feeling like P Diddy
(Hey, what up girl?)
Put my glasses on, Im out the door - I’m gonna hit this city (Lets go)
Before I leave, brush my teeth with a bottle of Jack
Cause when I leave for the night, I ain’t coming back
I’m talking - pedicure on our toes, toes
Trying on all our clothes, clothes
Boys blowing up our phones, phones
Drop-toping, playing our favorite cds
Pulling up to the parties
Trying to get a little bit tipsy

Don’t stop, make it pop
DJ, blow my speakers up
Tonight, Imma fight
Til we see the sunlight
Tick tock, on the click
But the party don’t stop
Woah-oh oh oh
Woah-oh oh oh


Aint got a care in world, but got plenty of beer
Aint got no money in my pocket, but I’m already here
Now, the dudes are lining up cause they hear we got swagger
But we kick em to the curb unless they look like Mick Jagger
Im talking about - everybody getting crunk, crunk
Boys trying to touch my junk, junk
Gonna smack him if he getting too drunk, drunk
Now, now - we goin til they kick us out, out
Or the police shut us down, down
Police shut us down, down
Po-po shut us
[Chorus] x 2
DJ, you build me up
You break me down
My heart, it pounds

Yeah, you got me
With my hands up
You got me now
You gotta that sound
Yea, you got me
DJ, you build me up
You break me down
My heart, it pounds
Yeah, you got me
With my hands up
Get your hands up
Put your hands up

The video is catchy too:

I am not all up-in-arms about censorship and everything, but those who have younger chidren may want to re-think downloading this particular song for their tweens or young kids, even though it is super-popular.

After all, this is The Kentucky Mountain Girl News and part of the reason I began this blog was to share information with you, Dear Readers.
