Sarah Palin rings in the New Year with ‘The Sound of Music’

 

Sarah Palin welcomed in the New Year with a charming image from 1965’s ‘The Sound of Music’, that cleverly quoted from the lyric of the Rodgers and Hammerstein song, ‘Sixteen Going on Seventeen’.

 

 

 

 

Sixteen Going On Seventeen
(Rodgers and Hammerstein)

You wait, little girl, on an empty stage
For fate to turn the light on
Your life, little girl, is an empty page
That men will want to write on

To write on

You are sixteen going on seventeen
Baby, it’s time to think
Better beware, be canny and careful
Baby, you’re on the brink

You are sixteen going on seventeen
Fellows will fall in line
Eager young lads and rogues and cads
Will offer you food and wine

Totally unprepared are you
To face a world of men
Timid and shy and scared are you
Of things beyond your ken

You need someone older and wiser
Telling you what to do
I am seventeen going on eighteen
I’ll take care of you

I am sixteen going on seventeen
I know that I’m naive
Fellows I meet may tell me I’m sweet
And willingly I believe

I am sixteen going on seventeen
Innocent as a rose
Bachelor dandies, drinkers of brandies
What do I know of those

Totally unprepared am I
To face a world of men
Timid and shy and scared am I
Of things beyond my ken

I need someone older and wiser
Telling me what to do
You are seventeen going on eighteen
I’ll depend on you

 

 

 

Happy new year everyone!

365 new days means 365 new opportunities.

I’ve decided that this will be a good year. A very good year. How about you?

God bless 2017.
Sarah Palin
