FROM ‘MARA, MARIETTA’
Part Ten Chapter 9

Dessert was mousse of skyr with crispy oats-and-hazelnut crumble, red currants and cinnamon-rhubarb sauce. In order not to spoil the lingering pleasure of that scrumptious closer, the stinky shark and Black Death were put off till later in the evening. The twins and I cleaned up, fooling around to ‘Friday I’m in Love’…

 

…‘The first time I saw lightning strike, I saw it underground’: Glad I’ve got my Cure albums on me, I put on ‘Hot Hot Hot!’ and join in the dance that instantly breaks out. So this is how it ends, our stay in Akureyri; this is how Berglind and Kári, Anna and Gudrun, will remember us: lovers dancing joyfully. When you’re gone, don’t expect me to forget.

HOT! HOT! HOT!
Robert Smith, The Cure

The first time I saw lightning strike
I saw it underground
Six feet deep below the street
The sky came crashing down
For a second that place was lost in space
Then everything went black
I left that basement burning and I never went back

The second time I saw it strike
I saw it at sea
It lit up all the fish like rain
And rained them down on me
For a second that boat was still afloat
Then everything went black
I left it underwater and I never went back

Hey hey hey
Well I like it when that lightning comes
Hey hey hey
Yes I like it a lot
Hey hey hey

Yes I’m jumping like a jumping jack
I’m dancing, screaming, itching, squealing, fever feeling hot hot hot

The third time I saw lightning strike
It hit me in bed
It threw me around and left me for dead
For a second that room was on the moon
Then everything went black
I left that house on fire and I never went back

Hey hey hey
Well I like it when that lightning comes
Hey hey hey
Yes I like it a lot
Hey hey hey
Yes I’m jumping like a jumping jack
Dancing, screaming, itching, squealing, fever feeling hot hot hot

FRIDAY I’M IN LOVE
Robert Smith, The Cure

I don’t care if Monday’s blue
Tuesday’s grey and Wednesday too
Thursday I don’t care about you
It’s Friday I’m in love

Monday you can fall apart
Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart
Oh Thursday doesn’t even start
It’s Friday I’m in love

Saturday wait
And Sunday always comes too late
But Friday never hesitate

I don’t care if Monday’s black
Tuesday, Wednesday heart attack
Thursday never looking back
It’s Friday I’m in love

Monday you can hold your head
Tuesday, Wednesday stay in bed
Thursday watch the walls instead
It’s Friday I’m in love

Saturday wait
Sunday always comes too late
But Friday never hesitate

Dressed up to the eyes
It’s a wonderful surprise
To see your shoes and your spirits rise
Throwing out your frown
And just smiling at the sound

Sick as a sheep
Spinning round and round
Always take a big bite
It’s such a gorgeous sight
To see you eat in the middle of the night
You can never get enough
Enough of this stuff
It’s Friday I’m in love

I don’t care if Monday’s blue
Tuesday’s grey and Wednesday too
Thursday I don’t care about you
It’s Friday, I’m in love

Monday you can fall apart
Tuesday, Wednesday break my heart
Thursday doesn’t even start
It’s Friday I’m in love
