do the rope walk

Rope Walk Girls

You see, honey,
My friend and I
she and I
we're the rope walk girls
we're the rope walk girls
and we tap tap tap
on the rope of
love, bay-beh!

We're the rope walk girls
and we tap tap tap
to a jazz beat war drum

bugs bunny once said
to not take life too seriously

so, she and I
we're the rope walk girls
our feet
tap tap tap the music
on this tight rope
we do the dat-dat-dah
and we Boop-bam!

but you can't hear it
bet you can't hear it
but you can't hear it
what a shame you can't hear it
it sounds like:

(Vera, to us.)

chai says, ang "rope walk girls" i saw on someone's shirt this morning and i thought about kita duha, hahahha.

well that's just cute.

there is a book, the rope walk. coincidentally, the main character, a 10-year-old, is named Alice; i haven't read it, but the name (including character inspiration) must have spun off from THE alice in wonderland herself, the "alice" that chai becomes in most of her works.

di ako naging fan ng PDA (di naman dahil ABS yun) dahil lang ayoko magpaalipin gabi-gabi sa TV (kahit pa TV ang buhay ko. labo! hehe.)pero alam mo bang fan ako ng poetry ni chai? ala lang. :)
