Have you ever had a father – daughter time together? No, its not the usual advice you get from him or him confiding something to you. I am saying about pure entertainment. I had it for the first time today.

I have come home on maternity leave and today father shared about a movie called ‘sound of music’ that he watched some decades back.. Well, i think he was very young then. When I expressed my desire to see the movie again, he went out and got it for me..

And we watched it together. Na, I should say that we are watching it in parts.. It is slow moving but nevertheless, I still like it..

Especially this one song I watched… Read the lyrics, they are too good..

[Rolf:]
You wait, little girl, on an empty stage
For fate to turn the light on
Your life, little girl, is an empty page
That men will want to write on

[Liesl:]
To write on

[Rolf:]
You are sixteen going on seventeen
Baby, it’s time to think
Better beware, be canny and careful
Baby, you’re on the brink

You are sixteen going on seventeen
Fellows will fall in line
Eager young lads and rogues and cads
Will offer you food and wine

Totally unprepared are you
To face a world of men
Timid and shy and scared are you
Of things beyond your ken

You need someone older an wiser
Telling you what to do
I am seventeen going on eighteen
I’ll take care of you

[Liesl:]
I am sixteen going on seventeen
I know that I’m naive
Fellows I meet may tell me I’m sweet
And willingly I believe

I am sixteen going on seventeen
Innocent as a rose
Bachelor dandies, drinkers of brandies
What do I know of those

Totally unprepared am I
To face a world of men
Timid and shy and scared am I
Of things beyond my ken

I need someone older and wiser
Telling me what to do
You are seventeen going on eighteen
I’ll depend on you

There is one more interesting piece to note here.. Dad said that one of the dance steps in this song was copied by M.G.R in one of his dance sequences with Saroja Devi. I forgot the name of that movie though…
