richard plays feelin groovy

At Café da Carol, Richard played this song, remembering having sung it with Vanessa. You can tune in too: in Windows Media Format (wmv, 2MB), or Real Video (rm, 2MB)

Slow down, you move too fast.
You got to make the morning last.
Just kicking down the cobble stones.
Looking for fun and feelin' groovy.

Ba da, Ba da, Ba da, Ba da...Feelin' Groovy.

Hello lamp-post,
What cha knowin'?
I've come to watch your flowers growin'.
Ain't cha got no rhymes for me?
Doot-in' doo-doo,
Feelin' groovy.

I've got no deeds to do,
No promises to keep.
I'm dappled and drowsy and ready to sleep.
Let the morning time drop all its petals on me.
Life, I love you,
All is groovy.

Side notes from Nathalie:

This was a song we sang quite often together as kids/going-on-teen; it moved me deeply to hear it sung by Richard's beautifully soft voice...

When we took Vanessa's body to Sobrainho, all of a sudden another of these songs, "Country roads" by John Denver, bubbled up...
