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
