"Uyimbube, uyimbube..."

...or is it "A-wimoweh, a-wimoweh"?

You probably don't know who Hank Mendress is, but I'm sure you've sung along with him on plenty of occasions. Mendress, who sang vocals with The Tokens, who sang "The Lion Sleeps Tonight," died of lung cancer on Sunday.

In his honor, the complete lyrics to "The Lion Sleeps Tonight":
A-wimoweh, a-wimoweh (8x)

In the jungle,
the mighty jungle,
the lion sleeps tonight.
In the jungle,
the quiet jungle,
the lion sleeps tonight.
A-wimoweh, a-wimoweh (8x)

Near the village,
the peaceful village,
the lion sleeps tonight.
Near the village,
the quiet village,
the lion sleeps tonight.

A-wimoweh, a-wimoweh (8x)

Hush my darling,
don't fear my darling,
the lion sleeps tonight.
Hush my darling,
don't fear my darling,
the lion sleeps tonight.

A-wimoweh, a-wimoweh (8x)

We-de-de-de
De-de-de-de-de
De-we-um-um-a-way
We-de-de-de
De-de-de-de-de
We-um-um-a-way

You may have too many shoes if...


1. This is what your the entryway in your apartment looks like. (Also note, there are 5 purses in that picture - but each has been used within the last couple of weeks!) I'm not even going to bother to count how many pairs are there, but I know there are some missing that I've worn recently.




2. You have two pairs of the same shoe (and a third that was recently thrown out), just because you like them so much, and can pick the ones that are least worn each day you want to wear them. That means there are really 4 pairs of the same shoe!




3. You decide to finally throw out some of the old shoe boxes you've been keeping in your closet (don't ask why), and find a lone boot in one of the boxes. Not sure where the other one is, but I'm guessing it's the same kind of situation as in #2... I know they were pretty comfy at one point.
