The coffee’s brewing! Let’s have a cuppa, relax and discuss this and that. I have a feeling this is going to be one of those chats.
1975, that magical year that Space Mountain opened at Disney World in Orlando, Florida. I lived in Orlando at that time and what an impact Disney had on a once sleepy little city. Disney was new, exciting and fun. There were an abundance of new jobs and in fact, that is when I got into modeling and even got a few roles of being an extra in commercials. I loved all that Disney had to offer and tried to go there as much as I could.
Unfortunately, I haven’t been there for several years and would love to go back there someday. I can just imagine the many changes that have taken place since I have been there.
No signs of salvation for growing inflation
Unwelcoming swarms of this and that
Chinwags at stake albeit conspiracy and Watergate
Patty Hearst most wanted but not wanting
Where’s Jimmy Hoffa tops the most haunting
Defined success Bill Gates and Microsoft
He and Paul Allen have smarts in their loft
Wars, famine, and oil brings our blood to a boil
Our souls they toil yet don’t own the soil
Ideas in destination but blanketed by foil
But mounds of zounds! We got our sounds!
Musical marvels never lets us down
Elton and, Lucy in the sky, are the talk of the town
Diamonds fall like rain onto the palsy-walsy ground
I want to live on Disney’s Space Mountain
Coins of gold and my youth harbored in a fountain
Yep, all that goes on will keep us strong
What’s right is right and what’s wrong is wrong
Life’s lemons in our tea will keep us alive
And hopefully, survive nineteen seventy-five
