living my life like it's golden

Once upon a time,
in a small dimly lit op-shop I stumbled upon the strangest of garments. It shimmered & shone from every angle much akin to an ornament on a christmas tree. Its ridiculousness made me chuckle! Who on earth ever wore this strange luminous garment? Why? Perhaps more importantly who in their right mind designed it? Obviously they were tripping.
However for the tidy sum of 50cents, who was I to say no?!? After all, I reasoned, it would come in handy for glitter themed costume parties (is there even such a thing?)

Then one day, in a moment of total disregard for convention, I raided my fancy dress basket & threw the craycray bolero on. It was love. Now I am convinced that every day should be a gold glitter bolero day. Why not!

I'm taking my freedom

pulling it off the shelf
puttin' it on my chain
wearing it round my neck
I'm taking my freedom
puttin' it in my car
wherever i choose to go
It will take me far

I'm taking my own freedom
putting it in my song
singing loud and strong
proving all day long
I'm takin' my freedom
puttin' it in my stroll
I'll be hop-steppin' y'all
lettin' the joy unfold

I'm holdin' on to my freedom
'Can take it from me
I was born in-to it, 
it comes naturally
I'm strumming my own freedom
playing the god in me
representing his glory
hope he's proud of me...

I'm living my life like it's golden
