The original theme to “I Love Lucy,” sung by Desi Arnaz

Ricky (Desi Arnaz) sings the “I Love Lucy” theme song to Lucy (Lucille Ball).

This put a smile on my face. Happy Tuesday.


I love Lucy and she loves me
We’re as happy as two can be
Sometimes we quarrel but then
How we love making up again

Lucy kisses like no one can
She’s my missus and I’m her man
And life is heaven you see
‘Cause I love Lucy
Yes, I love Lucy
And Lucy loves me

    Back then, Morocco was the place to be—with William Burroughs, Paul Bowles and all the rest. The Islamic world was the place to be, not just during the 1950s, but going back through all the ugly, narrow-minded centuries before that in Western countries. The Victorian Era, anyone? We have now switched places. The Western countries have just started to regain some of the sanity of Greco-Roman antiquity, but the Islamic world (since 1967) has lost the sanity it had during previous centuries. Switching places like that is fine with me since I’m American. It’s a pity that the Western countries and the Islamic countries can’t regain the tolerance and sanity of ancient times together. Nothing is perfect, I guess. Maybe someday, sanity will reign in both world regions, insha’Allah.

    Ah, the world was a simpler place then. Not better, necessarily, just simpler.

  • Oh this was the one where she thought everyone forgot her birthday and she was marching around with the “Friends of the Friendless” LOL
