THE SHOW 6000 MACARTHUR PARK SING-ALONG!


SHUFFLE FUNCTION MORNING SHOW
6000th BROADCAST
LIVE FROM THE ST PETER FOOD CO-OP

Thursday, March 10th from 6-9 am
KMSU 89.7fm/KMSK 91.3fm/kmsu.org

JUST ANNOUNCED: 
MACARTHUR PARK SING-ALONG @8:30!

If you're just tuning in, we're celebrating our 6000th Morning Show THIS THURSDAY with a live broadcast from the St. Peter Food Co-op!  We've never done a live remote broadcast of the morning show before, and we've very excited about it.  Plus, it's a thrill to be partnering with the Co-op on something like this, because they're such an important part of the community.  Seriously, they kick ass.

We're still looking for things we can do during this broadcast beyond the usual.  We'll be giving away swag for sure, but Shelley came up with a great idea this morning.  Why not have our first public sing along of MacArthur Park?  It's something we've been doing since the very first Pledge Drive a-Go-Go over a decade or so, and it's become a tradition on the show.  The thought of wheeling it out and having community members joining in a sing along sounds like a lot of fun, so we hope you guys will join us!

The sing-along will happen at 8:30.  Be at the Co-op with your voice at the ready.  Bring your dance and clapping skills for the Broadway style breakdown, and then get ready to let 'er rip on the big finish!  Don't know the lyrics?  Here they are.  Pay close attention to the bold type at the end, because that's when you get your moment to shine!

Spring was never waiting for us, girl
It ran one step ahead
As we followed in the dance

Between the parted pages
And were pressed in love's hot, fevered iron
Like a striped pair of pants

MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
'Cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again, oh no

I recall the yellow cotton dress
Foaming like a wave
On the ground around your knees

The birds like tender babies in your hands
And the old men playing checkers, by the trees

MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
'Cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again, oh no

There will be another song for me
For I will sing it
There will be another dream for me
Someone will bring it
I will drink the wine while it is warm
And never let you catch me looking at the sun
And after all the loves of my life
After all the loves of my life, you'll still be the one

I will take my life into my hands and I will use it
I will win the worship in their eyes and I will lose it
I will have the things that I desire
And my passion flow like rivers through the sky
And after all the loves of my life
Oh, after all the loves of my life
I'll be thinking of you and wondering why

MacArthur's Park is melting in the dark
All the sweet, green icing flowing down
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don't think that I can take it
'Cause it took so long to bake it
And I'll never have that recipe again
Oh no, oh no, no, no, oh no

Once again, join us at the St Peter Food Co-op at 8:30 Thursday morning for the first ever out and about MacArthur Park sing-along!  We'll see you there!
