**Prior warning: you may be offended by this post** – Classic song lyrics are being manipulated for my own entertainment…
If you’ve read the About page, you’ll know that the blog name ‘No Shrubs’ comes from the excellent TLC ‘No Scrubs’ : a tune we adopted in Alpine Lakes.. For the GR20, we’ve decided that in order to focus the mind [read: remain married] throughout the hike, we will be changing the lyrics of female power ballads to include references of hiking, struggling, survival and hike completion .. The first is below:
Dare I ask you to …….name that tune?!
“At first I was afraid, I was petrified, kept thinking I could never hike the 20 by your side,
But then I spent so many days learning how to hike along and now I’m strong and now I’m set to hike along….
But so you’re back, from buying stuff, you just walked in to find me here just trying to figure out this buff
I should have weighed my stupid pack, I should have washed my ‘breaker tee,
If I’d known for just one second you’d be back to hike with me……
Oh oh now go – walk out the door, don’t turn around now, cos now we’re hiking that’s for sure……..”
It will be a long, long month…
