Friday, August 4, 2017 – Everything’s Coming Up Football – IT’S TODAY!!!
College football season officially begins today as teams begin practice. I am so excited I am going to get a penalty for excess celebration. I chose a song to celebrate.
The version of the song is sung by Tony Award winner,Patti LuPone, from the 2008 Broadway revival of Gypsy. In fact her second Tony Award was for Gypsy.
There is not a great deal of action in the video. Rather it is Ms. LuPone’s powerful voice that captures the moment. Click on the YouTube and scroll down and sing along. I took the liberty of changing a few words here and there.
I had a dream, a dream about you, baby. It’s gonna come true, baby. They think that we’re through, but baby…
You’ll be swell! You’ll be great! Gonna have the whole world on the TV! Starting here, starting now, Honey, everything’s coming up football!
Clear the fields! Check the refs! You’ve got nothing to do but relax.
Gig ‘Em Ags!
Roll Tide Roll! Honey, everything’s coming up football!
Now’s your timing; Stand the world on it’s ear! Set it spinning! That’ll be just the beginning!
Sic ‘Em Bears! Go Pokes Go! You got nothing to fear but OU!
You’ll be swell. You’ll be great. I can tell. Just you wait. That lucky star I talk about is due! Honey, everything’s coming up football for me and for you!
You can do it. All you need is a band. We can do it, Twelfth Man is gonna see to it!
Hook ‘Em Horns! We got nothing to hit but the heights! I can tell, wait and see. There’s the bell! Follow me!
And nothing’s gonna stop us ’til we’re through! Honey, everything’s coming up football and trophies,Everything’s coming up sunshine and Saturdays, Everything’s gonna be bright lights and bowl games,
Everything’s coming up football for me and for you!
