Poetry Friday: Spooky by Classics IV

In the cool of the evening when ev'rything is gettin' kind of groovy
I call you up and ask you if you want to go and meet and see a movie
First you say no, you've got some plans for the night,
And then you stop - and say, "All right."
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you

You always keep me guessin', I never seem to know what you are thinkin'
And if a fella looks at you, it's for sure your little eye will be a-winkin'
I get confused, 'cause I don't know where I stand
And then you smile - and hold my hand
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you
Spooky!

If you decide someday to stop this little game that you are playin'
I'm gonna tell you all what my heart's been a-dyin' to be sayin'
Just like a ghost, you've been a-hauntin' my dreams
So I'll propose - on Halloween
Love is kinda crazy with a spooky little girl like you
Spooky!

- lyrics to Spooky by Classics IV

I've chosen this song for one of my two black cats, whom I miss terribly.

Here's your trivia for the day: The song now known as Spooky began as an instrumental piece by Mike Sharpe, a saxophonist. Then The Classics IV recorded it with lyrics written by James Cobb, Buddy Buie, and Harry Middlebrooks, Jr. It has been covered by many artists, including Dusty Springfield and Imogene Heap.

Happy Halloween, everyone! Be safe and have fun today and tonight.
