Melanoma Black Monday May 6th, 2013

I, personally, celebrate the entire month of May as Melanoma Awareness Month, as do those of us who occupy space in Melanomaland. Much of the rest of the world, however, chooses to observe Skin Cancer Awareness Month during May and give Melanoma the first Monday, which this year, is the 6th.

This May 6th we're inviting people to join us in wearing black, our color, and help us celebrate Black Monday. We have a Facebook event set up and it's open. Please join us. Our numbers are growing!

Well, if you know me, you know I have to have an "event song" and it has to be rewritten to fit melanoma. Only one person does that and that would be Rich McDonald, proprietor of Hotel Melanoma. My song of choice for Melanoma Black Monday is I Wanna Dance With Somebody.

So, click on the link to the video, and sing along. Many thanks to Rich! Ah! There are days it just pays to be HM Chaplain Boss Queen and this is one of them!


 I Don the Black with Mole Buddies

Docs strike upon the hour
And my sun begins to fade
Still enough time to figure out
How to chase my hues away
I’ve done alright up till now
It’s the fright of rays that shows me how
And when C fright falls the happiness calls

Oh I don the black with mole buddies
I wanna kill the beast with mole buddies
Yeah I don the black with mole buddies
With mole buddies who love me
Oh I don the black with mole buddies
I wanna kill the beast with mole buddies
Yeah I don the black with mole buddies
With mole buddies who love me

I’ve gotten drugs and lost my senses
Spinning in the gown
Sooner or later the fever ends
And I wind up feeling down
I had the tan and took a chance
On a sun that burns hot enough to last
So when C fright falls
My happy heart calls

Oh I don the black with mole buddies
I wanna kill the beast with mole buddies
Yeah I don the black with mole buddies
With mole buddies who love me
Oh I don the black with mole buddies
I wanna kill the beast with mole buddies
Yeah I don the black with mole buddies
With mole buddies who love me

Mole buddies who mole buddies who
Mole buddies who love me
Mole buddies who mole buddies who
Will hold me in their arms oh
I had the tan and took a chance
On a sun that burns hot enough to last
So when C fright falls
My happy heart calls.

Oh I don the black with mole buddies
I wanna kill the beast with mole buddies
Yeah I don the black with mole buddies
With mole buddies who love me
Oh I don the black with mole buddies
I wanna kill the beast with mole buddies
Yeah I don the black with mole buddies
With mole buddies who love me

Ohhhh,ohhhh
Come on baby, haha
Yea
Now get with this

Don't you want it black
for our Monday?
Won’t you don the black
with me boy?
Don't you want it black
for our Monday?

With mole buddies who love me.

Don't you want it black, say you want it black
Don't you want it black?
Don't you want it black say you want it black
Don't you want it black?
Don't you want it black say you want it black?
Uh huh. With mole buddies who love me.
