Lyfes Lyrics: Oh Boy (I Need You)

[#ipodonshuffle Oh Boy – Mariah Carey]

For Thanksgiving we all express our gratitude more outwardly than ever. Why? Shouldn’t we be grateful every day out of the year? Now realize I could end the blog now with those couple of cliche questions, but then the relation to the lyrics wouldn’t make much sense. Don’t worry, it’s all connected. I’m getting to that part. Just keep reading.

Thanksgiving is always great with family. Events are always more enjoyable and festive when more people are around. I’m sure most people spent their Thanksgiving Day around family, friends and food. In the past I’ve spent many Thanksgivings just like that. I would have give anything to be with my hunny, especially today of all days. In due time. Hearing this song on my iPod this afternoon didn’t help any. It made me think of him even more. I’m more anxious now, more than ever, to be in his arms; feel his touch; and to kiss him passionately.

But… instead, this Thanksgiving, I spent with my son, teaching him a life lesson. I hope he remembers it. I don’t even know if one can teach chivalry, but today I made an attempt at it. You see, I took my son to the Country Club for the annual Thanksgiving buffet. And even though I’m with him every day and can teach him everything from within the walls of our home, sometimes it takes the atmosphere… the ambiance… a change in environment for him to fully grasp the concept of what I’m trying to teach him.

Throughout the morning, in great detail, I explained to my son things that a “gentleman” would do for a lady. I had him help me put my coat on before we left the house. I had him open the door for me to the restaurant. Ok wait… I should explain why I didn’t teach my son to open the car door for me. Think about it, that would mean I’d be in the car once he shut or opened the door and he’d be outside. Not quite safe.

Once in the restaurant and at the table, I patiently and encouragingly had my son order our drinks and tell the waitress that we would be eating at the buffet for brunch. It was the cutest thing. It reminded me of when my aunt took the time to teach me what I was teaching my son. I helped him with his plate of food and we headed back to our table.

My son is not usually all that hungry, but this morning he was very much so hungry. So my plans to teach him a little table etiquette didn’t quite go as planned. I managed to get a little in there after he got some food in his stomach, but he was already on cloud nine from all the praise he was receiving from the women in the restaurant. I let him bask in the joy for a bit. We finished brunch and sat and chatted for a bit. Okay… he chatted… the entire time about Scooby Doo and friends. I listened intently. And even though I had heard the storyline of this particular episode already, I wanted my son to know what it felt like for a woman to listen intently and hang on his every word. However, I’m his mother, but even still, I think he appreciated the quality time we had today outside of the house. In fact, I know he did. Before bedtime, instead of reading his daily bedtime stories he wanted to rehash the days events. He remembered every detail, even the fact that he was too hungry to remember which fork to use for salad and meat and which spoon to use for the tea and soup.

Whatever the case, although I spent this Thanksgiving with just my son, I’m grateful for him and the time I have with him before he leaves my home a man. I may be thousands of miles away from my hunny and I sorely miss him, but my son’s company is the the next best thing until I can be with my hunny.

Until next post,

XoXoX

Oh Boy as performed by Mariah Carey

I can’t help it
When I’m not around you (Boy)
‘Cause all I ever seem to
Do is drift away
In dreams about you
‘Cause when I’m without you (Boy)
It always seems like
Part of me is missing baby

Sometimes I don’t call
Like I don’t care at all
But secretly, you’re the only thing
That lifts me up
And makes me smile
When I’m unhappy
All you gotta do is call
And suddenly things don’t really
Seem so bad at all

(Boy) I need you
(Boy) Adore you (Boy)
Gotta have you (Oh boy)
I want to feel your touch
This ain’t no little crush
So come and get my love
Baby anything you want
Feeling you (Boy)
Fiending for you (Boy)
Just waiting on you (Boy)
When I see you (Oh boy)
I’m gonna wrap you up
Inside my love
And never let you go boy
Never let you go boy

My heart races when
My Motorola beeps
Or my cell rings
I just make a wish and if it’s you
My whole day changes
‘Cause when I know
You’re thinking of me (Boy)
Heaven knows
Suddenly it’s not so dismal baby

Sometimes I don’t call
Like I don’t care at all
But secretly, you’re the only thing
That lifts me up
And makes me smile
When I’m unhappy
All you gotta do is call
And suddenly things don’t really
Seem so bad at all

(Boy) I need you
(Boy) Adore you (Boy)
Gotta have you (Oh boy)
I want to feel your touch
This ain’t no little crush
So come and get my love
Baby anything you want
Feeling you (Boy)
Fiending for you (Boy)
Just waiting on you (Boy)
When I see you (Oh boy)
I’m gonna wrap you up
Inside my love
And never let you go boy
Never let you go boy

I… (What?)
Need… (Who?)
You… (Uh huh, uh huh)
I want to feel your touch… (Why wouldn’t you)
So come and get my love (Show me where it’s at – now sing)
I… (What?)
Need… (Who?)
You… (Uh huh, uh huh)
I’m gonna wrap you up (Wrap me up)
And never let you go boy
Never let you go boy (Never let me go, girl)

(Boy) I need you
(Boy) Adore you (Boy)
Gotta have you (Oh boy)
I want to feel your touch
This ain’t no little crush
So come and get my love
Baby anything you want
Feeling you (Boy)
Fiending for you (Boy)
Just waiting on you (Boy)
When I see you (Oh boy)
I’m gonna wrap you up
Inside my love
And never let you go boy
Never let you go boy

    Awesome post as usual! love that you’re teaching your son those little things that sometimes go unnoticed. I think chivalry is never dead when you are in charge of raising a son… We need more good men in this life and you are definitely an awesome mom to take the time to show him the way.

    love you forever my uce!

      I try sis. There are a few gentleman, we women have to teach our sons but also give men a reason to feel like gentleman.

      Love you always sis.
