Let Me Be Your Wings





You know, only recently, I have discovered the wonders of YouTube.
Seriously.

I mean, before this, I used YouTube to watch music videos and funny clips.
But did you know you could actually watch movies on YouTube? Albeit in parts.
But you can actually watch whole movies on YouTube!!

Oh. You already knew that?
Well, humour me all right? >.<   



We watched Never Been Kissed, The Wedding Singer, Driving Miss Wealthy, and Mulan 2 (in Polish - it was loaded by accident). And then I discovered that my old favourite cartoons were on YouTube too!

OMG.

I used to have them in video tapes. You know the ones you play with the VCR?
They're all spoiled now. Which is sad because the beauty of those animated movies is gone when the tape is.

I missed them.

I found Cats Don't Dance first. OMG. I LOVED that cartoon.
Watching it again felt sooooo good. It brought back sweet childhood memories.
I used to watch the VCR over and over and over again.
Darla Dimple and Danny the Cat and Tilly the Hippo! And they all sing and dance!! :P
They taught me to always believe in your dreams, even when no one else does; to never give up or allow anyone to look down on you because of who you are. :)

Then I found Fern Gully. I remembered Crysta and Zack and evil Hexxus who wanted to destroy the forest. And I was reminded that we as humans are the khalifah or the caretakers of Earth (I remember my TITAS okay) and it is our responsibility to guard it, preserve it. All of us, have that magic of creation. :)

I was excited now. I searched for Thumbelina. OMG. I can't believe it really was on YouTube!!
Ah, the beautiful lyrics and melodies of a Walt Disney movie is, up till now, incomparable!
I loved Thumbelina for its music and characters and most of all, romance. Oh, to fall in love at first sight!
To love, and to have that love returned! The sweetness of young romance can give you a toothache - and I mean that in a good way. :P 

Thumbelina and Prince Cornelius simply belong together. Nothing else will do.

Oh, after watching that I had their duet song stuck in my head. It's called Let Me Be Your Wings (watch it!!).
Ahhhhh, the romance.....sighh.




LET ME BE YOUR WINGS
Thumbelina



Let me be your wings
Let me be your only love
Let me take you far beyond the stars
Let me be your wings
Let me lift you high above
Everything we're dreaming of will soon be ours
Anything that you desire
Anything at all
Everyday I'll take you higher
And I'll never let you fall

Let me be your wings
Leave behind the world you know
For another world of wondrous things
We'll see the universe
And dance on Saturn's rings
Fly with me
And I will be your wings

Heaven isn't too far
Heaven is where you are
Stay with me
And let me be your wings




Ahhhhhhhhhhh

Thank you YouTube!!!!!! XD

Bravo, grandma. Even my 5 year old cousin knew how to log in to Youtube to watch Tom & Jerry. Well..considering your old age...I guess it's not too late to realize it NOW! Talk about being tech savvy...Hey grandma, spend less time on your rocking chair and 1976's beauty magazines will you? :P
