We, human even had mad kings and queens who'd got highest certificates, the coronations, in our history.

But I find you as a highly intelligent princess of the homo sapiens.

kind regards.

Dear Claudia,

I just recall that I used to scream Paint it Black by Rolling Stones.

If you want to yell it too, here it is for you.

(I see a red door, and I want it painted black,
No colors anymore, I want them to turn black,
I see the girls walk by dressed in their summer clothes,
I have to turn my head until my darkness goes.

I see a line of cars, and they're all painted black,
With flowers and my love, both never to turn back,
I see people turn their heads and quickly look away,
Like a newborn baby it just happens every day.

I look inside myself and see my heart is black,
I see my red door and must have it painted black,
Maybe then I'll fade away and not have to face the facts,
It's not easy facing up when your whole world is black.

No more will my green sea go turn a deeper blue,
I could not foresee this thing happening to you.

I want it black, as black as night,
As black as coal, as black as death,
I wanna see the sun blotted out in the sky.

I want it painted painted painted, painted black, yeah.

I want it black, black as coal,
As black as ice, as black as death,
I wanna see the sun, blotted out in the sky...

I want it painted...)

kind regards.

Your memory serves you well. I was indeed playing on the Paint it Black lyrics by Rolling Stones. Some of the best lyrics ever!

You are incredibly intelligent to recognize the title, so well informed and quick! Your wisdom and knowledge sweeps me off my feet!

There, I made you a compliment, too. Let's call it even.

Dear Claudia,

How can I forget songs of our days. I learn a lot from the songs too.

It's all about 2 bucks only. No problem, Dutch treat this time. Fair enough.

You play piano?

kind regards.

Nah, you must be joking.

>>I want it painted painted painted, painted black, yeah.

Have fun.

Bis spater.

I habe einen KugelZug.

Nope! The triangle and the air guitar. I really rock on those!

It's more like screeching when I do it.

That's cool. That means you don't have to amuse Germans by asking, "Wo ist der Bahnhof?" ;-)

Ich kugel auch gern in den Zug.

Super! Bees,

Bongos? I recall Boney M and Santana for bongos.

Just as there is any number of excellent air guitarists in this world, there are myriad numbers of steering wheel bongo players.
You must have seen them... driving along, using the steering wheel as a drum-skin to tap out the rhythms of the songs playing over their car sound systems.
