Images and Words 165 ~ The Year I was Born.

Images And Words this week is thanks to Anders,
The Year I was Born.
The year I was born there was a very popular song playing on the old radiogram turntable by The Great Nat King Cole.

Maybe you know it and can sing it too?

Mona Lisa.

Mona lisa, mona lisa, men have named you
You’re so like the lady with the mystic smile
Is it only ’cause you’re lonely they have blamed you? 
For that mona lisa strangeness in your smile? 

Do you smile to tempt a lover, mona lisa? 
Or is this your way to hide a broken heart? 
Many dreams have been brought to your doorstep
They just lie there and they die there
Are you warm, are you real, mona lisa? 
Or just a cold and lonely lovely work of art? 

<instrumental interlude>

Mona lisa, mona lisa

  3. Terrific choice for annual connection. Mona Lisa by NKC is a gem indeed. So is Da Vinchi's masterpiece.

  6. Funny but last night I was hearing a commercial in the back ground of oldies and moldies. I had to laugh, cause I knew the words to all of the songs. Sheesh! What Collectibles we are.

  7. Oh...Milli Lisa is so pretty! Are you real? :)
    This is the first time I hear this lovely song. So sweetly melancholic.

  17. An absolute truth Linda. We children were gone for hours playing in the scrub or riding our bikes and no one had ever worry about our well being.
    A sad indictment for today's world is that we can not trust easily the people around us.
