Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da


About this design:

Im not sure why but this is the song that was playing in my head while I was working on this peace..
Desmond has a barrow in the marketplace
Molly is the singer in a band
Desmond say to Molly, girl I like you face
And Molly says this as she takes him by the hand

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da,
Life goes on, bra
La la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da
Life goes on, bra
La la how the life goes on

Desmond take a trolley to the jewelers store
Buys a twenty carat golden ring, (rin-ring)
Takes it back to Molly waiting at the door
And as he gives it to her she begins to sing (sin-sing)

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da
Life goes on, bra
La la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da
Life goes on, bra
La la how the life goes on

Yeah, In a couple of years they
have built a home sweet home
With a couple of kids running in the yard
of Desmond and Molly Jones

Happy ever after in the market place
Desmond lets the children lend a hand
Molly stays at home and does her pretty face
And in the evening she's a singer with the band

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da
Life goes on, bra
La la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da
Life goes on, bra
La la how the life goes on

Happy ever after in the market place
Molly lets the children lend a hand
Desmond stays at home and does his pretty face
And in the evening she's a singer with the band

Ob-la-di, ob-la-da
Life goes on, bra
La la how the life goes on
Ob-la-di, ob-la-da
Life goes on, bra
La la how the life goes on
And if you want some fun
take Ob-la-di-bla-da

    This is a beautiful necklace, Shannon.. I LOVE the GORGEOUS pendant !!!!!

    My friend met Sir Paul a few years ago…. interesting story…. her parents, sang with Buddy Holly on the record “That’ll Be The Day” in studio,….. Sir Paul, loved Buddy Holly and his music, and had a a party on Buddy Holly’s birthday to celebrate the Legend… he found out that my friends parents never got a gold record for there involvement, so , he invited them to the party , in New York, and presented them with a gold record… what a surprise and thrill that was for them !!!!! And how gracious that was of Sir Paul to do it !!!! Made me love him even more !!!!!!
