"Yeah we’re gonna

Bop, bop, bop
Bop to the top

Slip and slide and ride that rhythm

Jump and hop hop ‘til we drop

And start again

Zip zap zop
Pop like a mop

Scoot around the corner

Move it to the groove
‘Til the music stops
Do the bop bop, bop to the top
Don’t ever stop
Bop to the top

Gimmie, gimmie
Shimmy shimmy
Shake some booty and turn around
Flash a smile in their direction

Show some muscle

Do the hustle

Yeah we’re gonna bop, bop, bop
Bop to the top

Wipe away your inhibitions

Stump, stump, stump do the rump

And strut your stuff

Bop, bop, bop
Straight to the top
Going for the glory
We’ll keep stepping up
And we just won’t stop
‘Til we reach the top
Bop to the top"
-Bop to the Top (HSM)

"I remember I went to sleep late that night feeling uneasy
And had a very sad dream
The phone started to ring in the morning, breaking the silence
And the premonition became a reality
Leaving an unfading scar on my heart
You became a star by yourself

*Sayonara --- You have gone to the place where we can never meet again
I can't accept the coldness of the eternal parting
I wish I could have heard from you
That I had certainly been loved by you
Only once, even if it had been a lie

The sorrow I had thought to be endless came to an end
The season has changed, I feel bitterly cold
I will never forget that first day of summer
The sky kept on weeping instead of me this year
I feel as if I were living in the continuation of the dream
And I can't even cry now

Sayonara --- Even my last words don't reach you
I'm made to realize the coldness of the parting
I wish I could have heard from you
That you never regretted the days we had spent together
Only once, even if it had been a lie

Why did you do it this way
Leaving memories only to the very end?

(*) repeat

Please tell me this is only the story of the continuing dream
And that I'm not yet awake"

-Ayu (Memorial address)

"my head is reeling"

You and I still looked like a child with unprotected smile

That I wouldn't easily give up"

Direct quote from Drake Bell's mom- RobinAvatar
"Drake had the wires removed on Thursday, they gave him something to sleep.
Then he went to another dentist, and he was with him for about 4 hours. When Drake left he had temporary teeth.
He can eat now, and will be returning to work. We are not exactly sure when, Josh is very concerned it is to early. Josh has been there every step of the way for Drake. They have become very good friends through all of this.
Josh told me about the 2 things Drake is up for....the Drake and Josh and Drake for best actor. He was thrilled for him, I didn't understand how Drake would be separted from Josh especially since the show is both of them. He said "that's show biz" but he was very happy for Drake. I have been to Drake's a lot more since the accident, Josh is usually there too. Since they are not working, it is nice to see them hanging out.
That is the latest update."

Sorry about looking so rough. here's the story: we took a bus up to David Lipscomb this morning and we left our concert clothes on it so i we could go get them and change before the concert. so our bus driver drops us off. she then leaves town and so we had another bus take us to our bus and get our clothes. Girls changed on the 1st bus and guys on the 2nd. and then, when we returned to campus, we had to run to the concert hall to get there on time! *sigh* it was gross...  but fun lol
