Thanks, Fred!

Viewing the pictures of the tour of NNHS during the reunion weekend, took me down "memory lane" for a
very pleasant trip! I have only been back inside those walls once since leaving NNHS in 1965. I went
back to visit Mrs. Masters and other staff members while on a trip back to the area a year or two before
they closed the school for good. I remember feeling really sad when I left that final time, like I was
leaving a small piece of me behind.

Thanks, Tina!

... When I saw those pictures of the old gym, my first reaction was "there's my home room"!
Mrs. Masters' homeroom was in the gym!!!! Anyone else remember that experience?

Thanks, Joe!

Words and Music by Stephen Kipner and Terry Shaddick

I'm saying all the things that I know you'll like, makin' good conversation
I gotta handle you just right, you know what I mean
I took you to an intimate restaurant, then to a suggestive movie
There's nothin' left to talk about, unless it's horizontally

Let's get physical, physical, I wanna get physical, let's get into physical
Let me hear your body talk, your body talk, let me hear your body talk

repeat CHORUS

I've been patient, I've been good, tried to keep my hands on the table
It's gettin' hard this holdin' back, you know what I mean
I'm sure you'll understand my point of view, we know each other mentally
You gotta know that you're bringin' out the animal in me

CHORUS repeats 2x
