Bonhoeffer uses a similar phrase 'worldly Christianity'. It's J Gresham Machen that I want to line up most closely with. See his Christianity and culture here. Having done commentaries on Proverbs (Heavenly Wisdom) and Song of Songs (Heavenly Love), a matching title for Ecclesiastes would be Heavenly Worldliness. For my stance on worldliness, see 3 posts here.

RnR01 Woodland Rock


(Watch out for Laurel and Hardy)
I was thinking about doing a series on Rock'n'Roll numbers (yes, I know) and wrote one thing. Then someone mentioned this track (Woodland Rock). Though from the seventies it's straightforward Rock'n'Roll but with a parody twist (I think the guitars are going backwards too). I think it was on the 'b' side of the hit single 'Hot Love'.

There's a man on the corner
got his head in his hat
he dances like a gypsy
so he must be where it's at.
Do the rock, do the woodland rock
let it all hang out ev'rybody shout
do the rock, do the woodland rock.
The wind is the thing
that makes the body swing
it brings you up and takes you down
and treats you like a king.
Met a little Momma
she was sweet,
she was gone
she's got legs like a railroad
face like the sun.
Wind is in the willows
my house is up a tree
the seas of change are flowing
I want everybody free
to do the rock, do the woodland rock
let it all hang out ev'rybody shout
do the rock, do the woodland rock.
Met a little Momma, etc
Ally bally bash bam rock-a billy boom
Do the rock, do the woodland rock
let it all hang out ev'rybody shout
do the rock, do the woodland rock.
