Make Me Cocoa



I was thinking about cold weather. Probably because I just got back from Michigan where we had snow, but also because our temps are going down to about 33 degrees tonight here in Jacksonville, FL. When I think about cold weather I think of bonfires, sledding, cold cheeks and hot cocoa.

One of the funny things that my husband does every so often is this...when he is going to take a nap he'll say "Wake me up and make me cocoa." I laugh every time.

and then I start humming this song.


Wake Me Up by Wham

Watch the video

Jitterbug
Jitterbug
Jitterbug
Jitterbug
You put the boom boom into my heart
You send my soul sky high when your loving starts
Jitterbug into my brain
Goes a bang bang bang till my feet do the same
If something's bugging you
If something ain't right
My best friend told me what you did last night
Left me sleeping in my bed
I was dreaming but I should have been with you instead

Wake me up before you go-go
Don't leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go
I don't want to miss it when you hit that high
Wake me up before you go-go
'Cause I'm not planning on going solo
Wake me up before you go-go
Take me dancing tonight
I wanna hit that high

You put the grey skies out of my way
You make the sun shine brighter than Doris Day
You turn a bright spark into a flame
My beats per minute never been the same
'Cause you're my lady I'm your fool
It makes me crazy when you act so cruel
Come on baby lets not fight
We'll go dancing everything will be alright

Wake me up before you go-go
Don't leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go
I don't want to miss it when you hit that high
Wake me up before you go-go
'Cause I'm not planning on going solo
Wake me up before you go-go
Take me dancing tonight
I wanna hit that high
yeah, yeah, yeah
jitterbug, jitterbug

Cuddle up baby move in tight
We'll go dancing tomorrow night
It's cold out there but its warm in bed
They can dance, we'll stay home instead
jitterbug

Wake me up before you go-go
Don't leave me hanging on like a yo-yo
Wake me up before you go-go
I don't want to miss it when you hit that high
Wake me up before you go-go
'Cause I'm not planning on going solo
Wake me up before you go-go
Take me dancing tonight
I wanna hit that high

This song brings back fun memories. My very good friend in high school used to sing this song all the time. She passed away shorty before we graduated. Everytime I hear it-think of her...and think that is exactlky what its for- a message from her. Thanks!

What a lovely memory you have. I'm glad I could pass along a message. It's Christmas time, messages come in all shapes and sizes, now don't they?

Thanks Leigh.
