Stacy Nash (Monster Mash)

The mind can be a strange thing in some cases.  Mine is strange in most cases   : )   A while back I was stitching a design by Stacy Nash & for some reason Bobby Pickett's hit song Monster Mash started rolling around in my head.  I couldn't help but notice the syllabic similarity between the title of the song & the name of the designer & of course I had to expound on it.  For those of you who might not be familiar with Monster Mash, you can give it a listen by clicking on the link below & then sing along with my substitute lyrics if you'd like.  Happy October everyone!
Stacy Nash (Monster Mash)

I was looking for a chart late one night
When my eyes beheld a thrilling sight.
I had  many charts to choose from!  So many I'd bought!
But one of them was surely the best of the lot!

(She found a Nash!)
I found a Stacy Nash!
(A Stacy Nash!)
Yes, right there in my stash!
(She found a Nash!)
It would stitch in a flash!
(She found a Nash!)
I found a Stacy Nash!

With an alphabet & a critter or two
And a primitive date (1892)
I knew I couldn't go wrong!  It would be quite a prize!
A real treat for anyone's eyes!

(She found a Nash!)
I found a Stacy Nash!
(A Stacy Nash!)
Yes, right there in my stash!
(She found a Nash!)
It would stitch in a flash!
(She found a Nash!)
I found a Stacy Nash!

The letters were fun to do.
I loved Stacy's choice of blue!
The joy was overwhelming!
Maybe I'd stitch a few!

Things got a bit rocky & I felt some despair
When I looked at the chart & saw a french knot there
But my stitching friends told me  not to wish I was dead.
They said I could replace it with a cross stitch instead!

(She found a Nash!)
I found a Stacy Nash!
(A Stacy Nash!)
Yes, right there in my stash!
(She found a Nash!)
It would stitch in a flash!
(She found a Nash!)
I found a Stacy Nash!

Out from the bedroom dear hubs appeared
And over my shoulder he came & peered.
"I can't believe you're stitching so late," he said!
Then he muttered these words as he went back to bed.

(Another Nash!)
Another Stacy Nash!
(A  Stacy Nash!)
My wife thinks they're a smash!
(Another Nash!)
Stacy gets all my cash!
(Another Nash!)
Another Stacy Nash!

Everything was cool as the last stitch I took
And I smiled a big smile as I gave it a look.
I was proud of the finish!  It was a sight to behold!
Then I got up from  my chair & to my craft room I strolled

(To get a Nash!)
To get a Stacy Nash!
(Another Nash!)
Yes, right there in my stash!
(Another Nash!)
It  is always a blast
(To stitch a Nash!)
To stitch a Stacy Nash!

Thanks. I wonder if I'll be doing the footwork to my humming and dancing with my Little Wonder blower. And then order another Nash when I'm finished with the leaves.

ROFL you are officially this week's funniest blogger!
Scrap that, and make it this month's!
Pure genius song lyrics. I wonder if Stacey liked it as much as the open letter about her knots?

bettyj said...

Heavens help me! I never know what I am going to get when I click on your blog! May it never change. You, my friend are tooooo funny! Oh yes, I do remember the Monster Mash.

Siobhán said...

ROFLOL!!! Shirlee, you are so clever. Thanks for the laugh. I added that song to my Grooveshark playlist. That is, the monster mash version. ;)

Minnie said...

You my friend are a real gem, just when I thought I had heard everything you rewrite the Monster Mash song. I just wish I could hear you sing it and see which Stacy Nash chart you stitched. You made my Monday.
