Wooly Bully

I hope this post finds you well! ❤

Think about some of the most important goals that you have achieved in your life. Who has helped you make achieving those goals a reality?

In an earlier post entitled “Thankful for My Teachers,” I shared with you how my middle school Choir instructor and my high school Band instructor positively influenced my life and helped me have the courage to continue my passion for music.

I recently had a memory come back of the FIRST TIME I had a solo in choir. 🙂

I remember how my choir instructor always believed in me and was incredibly supportive of all of my music goals.

I remember being extremely honored when she had asked me if I wanted to do a solo in the upcoming choir concert. I remember being SO NERVOUS but SO EXCITED! ❤ (I’ve shared with you how I’ve always struggled with stage fright. 😉 )

During that concert, my choir performed a piece that was a mashup of various songs from the oldies. My solo was from Sam the Sham and The Pharaohs‘ song “Wooly Bully.”

Lyrics:

Uno dos, one two tres quatro
Ay, wooly bully
Watch it now, watch it

Here he comes, here he comes
Watch it now, he get ‘cha

Matty told Hatty
About a thing she saw
Had two big horns
And a wooly jaw

Wooly bully
Wooly bully
Yeah drive
Wooly bully
Wooly bully
Wooly bully

Hatty told Matty
Let’s don’t take no chance
Let’s not be L-seven
Come and learn to dance

Wooly bully
Wooly bully
Wooly bully
Wooly bully
Wooly bully

Watch it now, watch it watch it watch it
Ay Ay, drive, drive, drive

Matty told Hatty
That’s the thing to do
Get you someone really
To pull the wool with you

Wooly bully
Wooly bully
Wooly bully
Wooly bully
Wooly bully

Watch it now, watch it, here he comes
You got it, you got it

I hadn’t heard the song before I started learning it for the choir concert, but I do remember that I thought the chorus was very catchy and very fun. 😉

My solo was the lines:

Matty told Hatty
That’s the thing to do
Get you someone really
To pull the wool with you
.

I was TERRIFIED when I got up to the microphone to do this solo! 😮 But, I sang my heart out when I performed those 4 lines, and I remember being so proud of myself for getting up in front of a BUNCH OF PEOPLE that I didn’t know and singing alone. ❤

Can you think of a time when you did something that was really important to you, but you were nervous about it, and how you felt so proud of yourself once you did it?

It’s so important to remember experiences like that! ❤

It’s also incredibly important to take the time to remember all of the positive people who have helped us along our various journeys in life. ❤

Wishing you well! ❤
