Here's my second of two shots of Paulinha, in a different POV, peaking from in between the bricks of the wall which I posted some time ago.

Here I was wondering what title and note to use for this photo and this song popped into my mind: A song which I heard, for the first time, when I was 20 years old having recently moved from Canada. It brought back memories from my teenage years at school as well as so much happiness because, by that time, I was missing Canada like crazy!

Here's the song:

'Allo, I'm-a Giuseppe,
I got-a something special-a for you, ready?
Uno, duo, tre, quatro
When I was a boy, just about the eighth-a grade,
Mama used to say don't stay out-a late with the bad-a boys, always shoot-a pool,
Giuseppe going to flunk-a school.
Boy, it make-a me sick, all the t'ing I gotta do I can't-a get-a no kicks, always got to follow rules.
Boy, it make-a me sick, just to make-a lousy bucks.
Got to feel-a like a fool and-a mama used to say all-a time.
What's-a matter you? Hey! Gotta no respect.
What-a you t'ink you do? Why you look-a so sad?
It's-a not so bad, it's-a nice-a place.
Ah, shaddap-a you face!
That's-a my mama, I can remember.
Big accordion solo.
Ah! Play dat again, Really nice, really nice!
Soon-a come-a day, gonna be a big-a star.
Den I make-a TV shows and-a movies.
Get-a myself a new car, but still I be myself I don't want-a to change a t'ing, still a-dance and a-sing.
I t'ink about-a mama, she used to say:
What's-a matter you? Hey! Gotta no respect.
What-a you t'ink you do? Why you look-a so sad? It's-a not so bad, it's-a nice-a place.
Ah, shaddap-a you face
Mama, she said it all-a da time.
What's-a matter you? Hey! Gotta no respect.
What-a you t'ink you do? Why you look-a so sad?
It's-a not so bad, it's-a nice-a place.
Ah, shaddap-a you face
That's-a my mama!
Hello, everybody!
'At's out-a dere in-a radio and-a TV land.
Did you know I had a big-a hit-a song in-a Italy with-a disc Shaddap-a you face?
I sing-a dis-a song, all-a my fans applaud.
Dey clap-a da hands, dat-a make me feel-a so good
You ought to learn-a dis-a song, it's-a real-a simple.
See, I sing: "what's-a matter you?"
You sing: "Hey!"
Den I sing-a da rest and den at de end, we can all-a sing: "Ah, Shaddap-a you face!"
O.k., let's-a try it, really big!
Uno, duo, tre, quatro
What's-a matter you? Hey! Gotta no respect. Hey!
What-a you t'ink you do? Hey!
Why you look-a so sad? Hey!
It's-a not so bad. Hey! It's-a nice-a place.
Ah, shaddap-a you face!
OK one more-a time for mama!
What's-a matter you? Hey! Gotta no respect. Hey! What-a you t'ink you do? Hey!
Why you look-a so sad? Hey!
It's-a not so bad. Hey! It's-a nice-a place.
Ah, shaddap-a you face!

Well, watching them on youtube surely has brought a big smile on my face :)

I hope you like it and thank you for viewing.

PS: PP work consisted only of sharpening Paulinhas eyes a bit and adding her name and my signature.

HI Lurdes
She is really cute with that inquisitive look.
I just love these cats with their cry sounding like babies.
You got a really good and sharp shot, almost humourous, it sure brought a smile to my face.
WEll done

Cumprimentos.

Ha ha very funny. Although cats are not my favorite pets, i must say this one looks real cute. Cat's eyes are green ???
No, they are as blue as the sea !!!
Fine sharp photo...

regards, willemien

Nice composition and I like the way the eyes stand out. It did get me thinking about a partial desaturated look, so I created a little WS, hope you don't mind.
Thanks for sharing
Mark
