All About That Lace

Dear Readers,

As we cross the threshold from one year to the next, I want to dedicate the following piggy-back song to You, and to offer you my best wishes for a glorious 2015.  While we can’t control what transpires in our lives, we have do have some say in how we respond, no?

So, with respect (and apologies) to Meghan Trainor and Kevin Kadish , I give you this little ditty.

All About That Lace (sung to the tune of “All About That Bass,” 2014)

Because you know I’m all about that lace, ’bout that lace – no trouble.  I’m all about that lace, ’bout that lace – no trouble.  I’m all about that lace, ’bout that lace – no trouble.  I’m all about that lace, ’bout that Lace.

Yeah, it’s pretty clear – ’14 was one rough year. There were some trips and falls and a good shot of fear.  But I can push on through just like Joan told me to.  ‘Cuz I got all the right stuff to start over  – brand new.

It’s unavoidable, life, it ebbs and flows.  We know it’s true, and that’s just how it goes.  If you fall down seven times you got to pull yourself up eight.  You best keep yourself goin’, ‘cuz time it won’t wait.

Yeah, my heart tells me don’t fret about  all of those days to come.  You may be feeling a little bit tender and even alone.  Cop a new attitude and you’ll never really go wrong.  Wear some Lace, you got grace and you’ll face what stuff comes along.

Because you know I’m all about that lace, ’bout that lace – no trouble.  I’m all about that lace, ’bout that lace – no trouble.  I’m all about that lace, ’bout that lace – no trouble.  I’m all about that Lace.

Because the New Year’s back!  And the Lace is so about all that.  Don’t focus on your lack.  You are fancy, fine as wine, from your front all to your back!

Yeah, my heart tells me don’t fret about  all of those days to come.  You may be feeling a little bit tender and  even alone.  Cop a new attitude and you’ll never really go wrong.  Do the Lace, you got grace, and you’ll face what stuff comes along.

Because you know I’m all about that lace, ’bout that lace – no trouble.  I’m all about that lace, ’bout that lace – no trouble.  I’m all about that lace, ’bout that lace – no trouble.  I’m all about that Lace!

 

All the very best in Me to the very best in  You.

  1. I’m going to pick myself up, dust myself off and do it all over again. Only,
    this time I’ll do it better………….not ready to check out just yet.
    I’ve added a few things to my “bucket list”.

    Many happy returns to you and your family.
    Looking forward to meeting again.

  2. Thanks for putting much better lyrics to this very catchy tune. I’m singing it now. I think I’ll put on my lace top and wear my lace scarf. I have “kind of lacey” pantyhose, but they really look like spider webs. And, as you always reminded ME when things got tough…I’m going to put on my brass bra too! I’m ready for 2015! Happy New Year!

  3. I’m so honored that you actually tried out the tune, Tina Connie! With your lacey scarf and top, and spider hose and brass bra, you are indeed ready to take on 2015. And, because you have managed to make excellent use of lace and brass, I dub thee the first new latest super hero of 2015: Tina Labrassina. Watch out, World!
