We Don’t Talk about Bruno

We are nearing the end of January. 😯 What have you been doing to enjoy yourself this month?

One of the things I’ve enjoyed doing is practicing the 43 songs I will be performing at my show this weekend:

Sunday, January 22, 2023

Wisconsin Brewing Company
1079 American Way
Verona, WI 53593
1pm to 4pm

I am so grateful for the opportunity to perform again! 💜 I hope to see you there! 😃

Here’s a photo from the last show I had at Hop Haus Brewing Co. Read about the show here.

Something else I have been enjoying doing (since it has been too cold for me to want to go outside 😉) is having fun listening to songs that make me want to dance. 💃🏻

I’ve mentioned that to connect with my inner child, sometimes I enjoy watching animated Disney films, like Encanto.

I just LOVE that movie! It has such a great story and such great songs that get stuck in your head! 😄

My FAVORITE song from the movie—and the song that has been stuck in my head lately—is “We Don’t Talk About Bruno.”

Lyrics:

We don’t talk about Bruno, no, no, no!
We don’t talk about Bruno… but

It was my wedding day
It was our wedding day
We were getting ready, and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky
No clouds allowed in the sky

Bruno walks in with a mischievous grin-
Thunder!
You telling this story, or am I?
I’m sorry, mi vida, go on

Bruno says, “It looks like rain”
Why did he tell us?
In doing so, he floods my brain
Abuela, get the umbrellas
Married in a hurricane
What a joyous day… but anyway

We don’t talk about Bruno, no, no, no!
We don’t talk about Bruno!

Hey! Grew to live in fear of Bruno stuttering or stumbling
I could always hear him sort of muttering and mumbling
I associate him with the sound of falling sand, ch-ch-ch

It’s a heavy lift, with a gift so humbling
Always left Abuela and the family fumbling
Grappling with prophecies they couldn’t understand
Do you understand?

A seven-foot frame
Rats along his back
When he calls your name
It all fades to black
Yeah, he sees your dreams
And feasts on your screams (hey!)

We don’t talk about Bruno, no, no, no! (We don’t talk about Bruno, no, no, no!)
We don’t talk about Bruno (we don’t talk about Bruno!)

He told me my fish would die
The next day: dead! (No, no!)
He told me I’d grow a gut!
And just like he said… (no, no!)

He said that all my hair would disappear, now look at my head (no, no! Hey!)
Your fate is sealed when your prophecy is read!

He told me that the life of my dreams would be promised, and someday be mine
He told me that my power would grow, like the grapes that thrive on the vine
Óye, Mariano’s on his way

He told me that the man of my dreams would be just out of reach
Betrothed to another
It’s like I hear him now

Hey sis’, I want not a sound out of you (it’s like I can hear him now)
I can hear him now

Um, Bruno…
Yeah, about that Bruno…
I really need to know about Bruno…
Gimmie the truth and the whole truth, Bruno
(Isabella, your boyfriend’s here)
Time for dinner!

A seven-foot frame (it was my wedding day, it was our wedding day)
Rats along his back (we were getting ready)
When he calls your name (and there wasn’t a cloud in the sky)
It all fades to black (no clouds allowed in the sky!)

Yeah, he sees your dreams (Bruno walks in with a mischievous grin-)
And feasts on your screams (thunder!)
You telling this story, or am I?
I’m sorry, mi vida, go on (óye, Mariano’s on his way)

Bruno says, “It looks like rain” (a seven-foot frame, rats along his back)
In doing so, he floods my brain
Married in a hurricane
He’s here!

Don’t talk about Bruno, no! (Why did I talk about Bruno?)
Not a word about Bruno!
I never should’ve brought up Bruno!

What do you think of the song?

My favorite part of the song is:

A seven-foot frame
Rats along his back
When he calls your name
It all fades to black
Yeah, he sees your dreams
And feasts on your screams (hey!)

I like the spookiness of it. 👻

This song is so great because the majority of people have bad opinions about Bruno when in actuality, Bruno is a good guy.

Can you think of a time where your opinion of someone was actually the opposite of who they were?

I hope you enjoyed this week’s song! 🎶

Wishing you well! 💜
