Music Lyrics Monday: Sea of Love

My favorite real sea--the Caribbean one.

Sea of Love

Come with me my love
To the sea, the sea of love 
I want to tell you
How much I love you

Do you remember when we met?
That's the day I knew you were my pet
I want to tell you
How much I love you
Come with me
To the sea, of love
Do you remember when we met
That's the day I knew you were my pet
I want to tell you
How much I love you
Come with me
To the sea, of love
Do you remember when we met
That's the day I knew you were my pet
I want to tell you
How much I love you
I want to tell you
How much I love you
I want to tell you
How much I love you

~ Originally performed by Phil Phillips

This is just a great song. Sure. The lyrics are pretty simple. And somebody is being called a "pet" as a loving affirmation. But still. Who can argue with a dude who's inviting you to a sea of love?

Not me.

Yep. This is a great song if you ask me. And the only thing better than a great song is a great remake of a great song. I love this mullet-ociously delicious version by Robert Plant in the post-Led Zeppelin days. Complete with this one-hit wonder group called . . . wait for it. . . .The Honeydrippers. So, so 1980's corny.

I love it.

And what can I say? Since my reference in an earlier post to all of the people who came to support our family over the past few weeks as a "sea of love" I haven't been able to shake this song from my mental iPod. Now you won't be able to either. (Or Robert Plant's mullet.)

*You're welcome.*

Go mullets. Happy Monday, y'all.

Mr. Plant and the Honeydrippers circa 1982 . Y'all don't know nothin' 'bout this!


And Mr. Phillips singing the original circa 1958. Good times, man.
