Poetry Friday -- Ode to the First Weeks of School

Well, I’m a steamroller, baby
I’m bound to roll all over you
Yes, I’m a steamroller now, baby
I’m bound to roll all over you
I’m gonna inject your soul with some sweet rock ’n roll
And shoot you full of rhythm and blues

The rest of James Taylor's lyrics are here.
James Taylor with hair sings it here.
James Taylor without hair sings it here.

Commentary: It's the end of the first full week of school. Need I say more? 
...I didn't think so.
Looking forward to the long weekend.

Tricia, at The Miss Rumphius Effect, is rounding us up, in spite of being in her sixth day of no electricity. Talk about being steamrolled! And Irene-rolled, too! 


  1. James Taylor - the best, with or without hair! Thanks for sharing one of my all time favorites, Mary Lee!

  2. I have to agree with Tara. James Taylor is CLASSIC. Beautiful beautiful song to kick off the school year. Thanks for sharing!

  3. Love him with or without hair, with or without a moustache :). Ah, JT . . . sigh.

    Congrats on making it through the first week of school.

  4. Steamrolled, underwater, wiped out--there's no end to the metaphors of our exhaustion. All over the country Chinese restaurants should be giving teachers free dinners tonight!

    Hope you have the most wonderful class ever (and if they're not wonderful yet, Mary Lee Hahn will squeeze them into shape in no time)!

  5. It's Saturday and I am just reading Poetry Friday-Love the post!
