“Knee-Deep in Daisies With You”

Posted on Updated on

There are certain songs that bring simple joys. It reminds us to be lighthearted, content and breezy … even crazy despite the hustle and bustle of everyday life…
All great loves experience their share of running barefoot in the park and playing knee-deep in daisies, the summers of our lifetime.  This song reminds Teki of her first trip to Camp John Hay with Marg.  Happy moments are like daisies whatever the season.
==========================================
BAREFOOT IN THE PARK*
performed by Rita Calypso
music by Neal Hefti, lyrics by Johnny Mercer
==========================================
Going barefoot in the park
where it says: “Keep Off The Grass”
isn’t recommended for the very old
But when you’re young and you’re in love
the world is beautiful
and i’m not a bit afraid of you catching cold
Running barefoot through the park
strolling bareheaded in the rain
Just to look for a daisy seems kind of crazy to do
But come along, my barefoot love
to the fields that shine with spring.
Let me laugh and play all the way
knee-deep in daisies with you
=========================================
* from the Neil Simon play and film of the same title
