Sugar For My Hummie

Motor Man, Marshall and I are always on the look-out for puns, synchronicities, etc..

The other day, Marshall and I were running a few errands, one being a stop at the supermarket.   I’ve been making my own hummingbird nectar recently, and one of the items on my list that day was sugar.  So, as we shopped, I said: “And I need sugar for my hummie” (hummingbird). As I said it, the lyrics of that old song hadn’t crossed my mind.

But, once I spoke the words, we both immediately said: “Sweets for my sweet, sugar for my ‘hummie'”.

And now, I bring you…..The Drifters:


Yes, it was corny, but it was fun. And that’s what’s important, right?

  1. Perfect! Now play that song when you’re filling up your feeders 🙂 MJ

  2. Hahah! That made me giggle and of course I had to click and listen. Hoping your “Hummies” enjoy their sweets today!

  3. I remember that song! I was ten when it came out but I am thinking it was later on when I was more interested in music on the radeeeohhhh that I REALLY enjoyed it. When I think of The Drifters, I think Under the Boardwalk and Up on the Roof. Different Drifter singers but the music was still great! Oh, And There Goes My Baby! Enjoyed this Dianna! Of course I can’t help but think of Smokey’s Cruisin’.. 🙂 I saw that Like you gave it on my fb! That was some great music and I am going to sound ancient here and really corny but those were the days!

  4. Only you and Marshall!! They just don’t make music like they used to!!

  5. Had a great song singing along with that one and bopping about in my computer chair!! 😀 You know what? The corny fun is usually the best fun! Hope your ‘hummies’ liked their sweets. Your ‘hummies’ here in cyberland did!

  6. They don’t write songs like that anymore. It was a “Sweet” song. Don’t you love how a phrase can remind you of a song and that song will surface old memories of that era of your life? “Under the Boardwalk” does that to me!

  7. You two are so endearing and you make me laugh. 🙂

  8. Such a great song …. Gotta’ love the plays on words !!

  10. Oh you’ve got to make your own nectar…they love it! We started doing a 50/50 split and the hummies are going crazy! They like their sugar. 🙂

  11. You just reminded me – I need sugar for my hummie! LOL!

  12. That apple didn’t fall far from the tree!

  13. Just love it! The old songs were fun!
