In our sometime series, “I do not think that song means what you think it means,” I present this commercial.

The song is about a couple who dream of moving on up out of poverty to a real two story home but work so hard to attain it and all the lovely objects that fill it, that they lose each other. So they end up having all the things and the status but no love. Just like George Jones and Tammy Wynette!


I also am posting it because I’m having a tough time in my life right now and this song reminds me of my childhood, of listening to country music on WHN with Brother2, and the lovely world you live in where your parents worry about you and not the other way around.

Also because I wouldn’t mind a two story house myself.

Full song:
George Jones and Tammy Wynette – Two Story House

    I hadn’t seen that commercial, but it IS kind of funny/weird when they use a line or 2 from a song that’s really inappropriate, if you listen farther.
    But it’s always nice to hear Tanmy and George.
    I am sorry you are going through a difficult time, Becca. It’s a sad time in life when the tables turn that way.

    Thanks, guys.

    Thanks to you, I’m singing “Movin’ on Up” from the Jefferson’s TV show. And you thought YOUR life was bad.
