HAVE YOU A BURING AMBITION?

 HAVE YOU A BURNING AMBITION?

Have you a buring ambition,
Or perhaps a goal to achieve.?
I have a buring ambition,
What it is you wouldn't believe.

Some four years ago,
I went to LA, and met dear Arlee Bird,
It was a lovely day to remember,
Not so totally absurd.

He took us to Hollywood,
We went by subway no less.
We passed quickly through one station,
I was totally gobsmacked I confess.

You see I thought this place was fictional
In a well known song.
But seeing the station,
I guess I was so very wrong.

My burning ambition
Is to visit this place (no, I'm not insane)
The place is MacArthur Park
And leave a cake out in the rain.

  2. How wonderful you got to see the real MacArthur Park.

    Years ago when we visited London, I HAD to go see Regent's Park. It's nothing special, but I'd read 101 Dalmations dozens of times and that's the park the dogs always walked through - and I wanted to see it.

  4. I hope you achieve your ambition one day Yvonne, though I must confess I never did understand the words of the song :(
