[Woke up with is song on my mind and been singing along to it the whole day on the streets. God Bless iPod.]

“San Dimas High School Football*
[The Ataris – Blue Skies, Broken Hearts… Next 12 Exists]
Last night I had a dream that we went to Disneyland,
Went on all the rides, didn’t have to wait in line.
I took you to your house where we stared up at the stars
I listened to your heartbeat as I held you in my arms.

We hung out at the Rainbow where we drank ’till half past two.
Nothing could go wrong anytime that I’m with you.
Like crashing a hotel room or leading up to that first kiss
Or searching for a high school that you know doesn’t exist*…

These are the things that make me free
I feel like I’m stuck in stand by me
This night was too good to be true.

Today I woke up alone wishing you were here with me,
I want us to be something that we’d probably never be.
Today you called me up and said you’d see me at our show,
But now I’m stuck debating if I even want to know.

Whitney, don’t you understand that what I say is true?
I just want you to know I have a major crush on you.
I’d drive you to Las Vegas and do the things you wanna do
I’d even have Wayne Newton* dedicate a song to you.

I only wish that this could be
Just dump your boyfriend and go out with me
I swear I’d treat you like a queen. A queen.”

* The song title was inspired in the movie Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure (1989). In the movie at on point the main character run out of thing to say during a oral exam and yells ‘San Dimas High School football rules!’

* Despite the inspiration been a fictional movie, the San Dimas High School does exist in California.

* Carson Wayne Newton is a American singer born in 1942. Newton is also a entertainer based in Las Vegas (Nevada), singing in Cassinos through the city, after a period of 40 years Newton performed over 30.000 solo shows in Vegas, earning the nickname (and status) of Mr. Las Vegas. His most known songs are ‘Daddy Don’t You Walk So Fast’, ‘Years’ and – the most popular one – ‘Danke Schloen’ (Thank You, in German).
