Weekly Travel Photo Theme: Signs

Signs, signs, everywhere a sign! I have to combine my weekly photo challenge with some Tunes Tuesday worthy lyrics this week. Ailsa at Where’s My Backpack has issued a weekly travel challenge about signs.

I love taking pictures of signs to capture where I have been, so it was hard to choose which photos to include, but here are some of my favorites, followed by the lyrics of a great oldie but goodie song.

And now, for the Tunes Tuesday worthy lyrics:

Signs
Five Man Electical Band

And the sign said “Long-haired freaky people need not apply” So I tucked my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why He said “You look like a fine upstanding young man, I think you’ll do” So I took off my hat, I said “Imagine that. Huh! Me workin’ for you!” Whoa-oh-oh

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign Blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign?

And the sign said anybody caught trespassin’ would be shot on sight So I jumped on the fence and-a yelled at the house, “Hey! What gives you the right?” “To put up a fence to keep me out or to keep mother nature in” “If God was here he’d tell you to your face, Man, you’re some kinda sinner”

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign Blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign?

Now, hey you, mister, can’t you read? You’ve got to have a shirt and tie to get a seat You can’t even watch, no you can’t eat You ain’t supposed to be here The sign said you got to have a membership card to get inside Ugh!

And the sign said, “Everybody welcome. Come in, kneel down and pray” But when they passed around the plate at the end of it all, I didn’t have a penny to pay So I got me a pen and a paper and I made up my own little sign I said, “Thank you, Lord, for thinkin’ ’bout me. I’m alive and doin’ fine.” Wooo!

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign Blockin’ out the scenery, breakin’ my mind Do this, don’t do that, can’t you read the sign?

Sign, sign, everywhere a sign Sign Sign, sign

What do you think? Do you have any funny travel stories about signs? Have you ever been grateful to see a sign?

I hope you will share your thoughts! Thank you for reading!
