Passin' the Time AKA Melo-in' Out

(Boulder-CO) There isn't much to talk about before the Nuggets tip-off the season Thursday night. So to pass the time, I present a really entertaining youtube clip featuring our boy 'Melo. Love that groovy tune, but what is the guy saying after, "They call me mellow yellow?" To me it sounds like, "Quite right, slick," but this throwback is way before my time... Let me know if you've got the lyrics on the back of that wax.

I'm just mad about Saffron
Saffron's mad about me
I'm just mad about Saffron
She's just mad about me

{Refrain}
They call me mellow yellow
(Quite rightly)
They call me mellow yellow
(Quite rightly)
They call me mellow yellow

I'm just mad about Fourteen
Fourteen's mad about me
I'm just mad about Fourteen
She's just mad about me

{Refrain}
Born high forever to fly
Wind velocity nil
Wanna high forever to fly
If you want your cup our fill

{Refrain}
(So mellow, he's so yellow)

Electrical banana
Is gonna be a sudden craze
Electrical banana
Is bound to be the very next phase

They call it mellow yellow
(Quite rightly)
They call me mellow yellow
(Quite rightly)
They call me mellow yellow
Saffron -- yeah
I'm just mad about her
I'm just mad about Saffron
She's just mad about me

{Refrain}
(Oh so yellow, oh so mellow)

Oh course, Donovan did not sing the exact lyrics each time. On a concert album, he sings, "I'm just mad about Fourteen *Year Old Girls*, Fourteen's mad about me."

So, you could have heard a version where he does sing "Quite right slick."

domino,

Thanks a lot for the lyrics! Now I do not have to sound like a fool sayin, "That's right slick". Just goes to show you... Ask you you shall receive!

Haha, I thought it was "that's right, slick" also -- don't feel bad. And yeah, 'Melo's jab step is the best size-up move in the NBA. He kills EVERYONE with that. And he really is a pretty fierce dunker -- he posterized quite a few guys last year. But nothing is prettier than that shot. It's gonna be a big year for 'Melo -- and I got him on my fantasy team, so I get to enjoy the success on two levels.

stumbleweed,

If I were to start getting even more enjoyment out of NBA basketball, and specifically the Nuggets, I might have to seek counseling.
