Full House Lyrics

Perhaps most people are not even interested in this, but as Peter may remember, I've been "bugged" for years by not being able to understand the lyrics to the opening song on Full House. Since Kirsten watches it at every opportunity, I continued to be slightly annoyed by it. I suddenly realized I could google "Everywhere You Look" and see what came up, so I did. Lo and behold it was the first thing that came up. So if anyone else has been waiting with baited (Helena is that the right one?) breath--here it is!
Everywhere You Look
by Jesse Frederick - Full House Lyrics

What ever happened to predictability?
The milkman, the paperboy, evening TV.

Everywhere you look ,
Everywhere you go (there's a heart).
There's a heart
A hand to hold onto.

Everywhere you look ,
Everywhere you go.
There's a face
Of somebody who needs you.

Everywhere you look,
When you're lost out there and you're all alone,
A light is waiting to carry you home,
Everywhere you look.
Everywhere you look.
It was that "evening TV" that I never quite got when I would try to listen to it. I still don't--really. To me it still sounds like "Enan tea lee" which makes no sense. At least now I know what it's supposed to be. :-)

Actually it felt pretty good to clear up a long-standing thing like that, even if it is so minor. A rather nice way to start the new year I think. --K

It's actually bated breath as in abate (to stop or decrease) 'cause you're holding your breath rather than using bait to lure something in. See my blog later today for a poem about it!

And as long as we're lovingly pointing out errors, there's a typo at the end of your profile -- it should eb Onward rather than Oward.

Have a great day!

Boy, what did we ever do before the internet? I have that happen every once in a while, where I suddenly think of something that I used to wonder about, and I think, "Hey, I can look that up!"
