Happy Birthday Little Eva
Happy Birthday Little Eva, and I hope you are remembered. For her hit song “Locomotive”, hasn’t left my head and mind, since I first heard it. For the few (four, or more) that never heard of it, and said we weren’t born then. Don’t make be older than I aim, for I’m five myself (well maybe older, like seven), and I heard it in My Mom’s womb (no in her DNA, when she was young, like preteen), However I heard it, I’d be singing it everywhere I go, in school (where I got beaten up), in church (were I was shushed), in the playground ( where there was rocks for me to catch), in traffic (where I was ask to go, but I was too fast for those cars and trucks to hit me with), while I was walking my dog (I didn’t know dogs were that sense of hearing). The only place I didn’t sing it was in the shower, for I was too embarrass, for someone to hear me, (unless I get a high school band in the bathtub to drown out the noise I was hearing when I sing). I’m not sure, why the fire depart had to come and save a duck, which we don’t have is purely, ridiculous, and I like to who called them in the first place.
Now that my silly side has left the room (will come back after he finishes his milk and cookies), I still listen to that song and specially today of all days this year, on her birthday. it’s a great song, although, if it was recorded today, it may not get on the charts. I’ll always play Little Eva’s albums, and I could not care if no one else hasn’t heard of her, because she will always have a place in my hear and on my website.
