Sing it to Me

Not sure which way this day is going...Mini-Husband got dressed by himself, The Princess wanted to wear a skirt, and the dogs didn't break into a chorus this morning with the bells. Something's up.

Plus, Bubba-Love is under the weather again so we are off to see the doctor this morning. "Off to see the wizard, the wizard..."

Yet another day with a musical quote! Not bad! Let's go with this idea here for a minute. Yes, I think it's LURKERS AND POSTERS PARTICIPATION TIME!

Tell me the lyrics from a song that really rings true for you. Could be a list of several or could just be one you hold dear to your heart.

I'll even start.

"I can see clearly now the rain has gone." --Jimmy Cliff

That song always helps me keep my head when I'm going nuts and reminds me to see the forest for the trees. And there sure are a hell of a lot of trees out there!

"And you may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
And you may find yourself in another part of the world
And you may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
And you may find yourself in a beautiful house, with a beautiful Wife
And you may ask did I get here? "--Talking Heads

Not only do I love the whole song but that "how did I get here" line seems to fit me like a T!

Ok, people. Hit that comment button and let me know what lyrics have that special something for you. Go on, it'll only take a minute. You know you want to...

Are you still having fun ? Eagle-Eye Cherry

If you ask me, I'll say, yes please, to you today. So don't ask me, 'cause I'm weak that way. Just don't ask me, ok ? Ani Difranco

she's not just a pretty face Shania Twain

and so much more ;-)

Dig said...

Well done, you! I love the Ani Difrance lyrics. I need to buy one of her albums one of these days.

Shania's got it right, you are not just a pretty face!! ;)

Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go
So make the best of this test, and don't ask why
It's not a question, but a lesson learned in time
It's something unpredictable, but in the end it's right
I hope you had the time of your life
Green Day


Dig said...

Katy! Those are awesome lyrics too. Words you live by, if you ask me! XOXO

"It's the perfect time of day
To throw all your cares away
Put the sprinkler on the lawn
And run through with my gym shorts on.
Take a drink right from the hose
And change into some drier clothes
Climb the stairs up to my room
Sleep away the afternoon."
Bare Naked Ladies

The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire. (Sorry, couldn't resist).

But I do want to add:

Be first in line, raise your hand
Remember everything you hear
And playing in the rain is worth catching cold.

Sooner or later we'll be lookin' back on everything
And we'll laugh about it like we knew what all was happening
And someday you might listen to what people have to say
Now you learn the hard way.
-Michael Tolcher
(This is the cd that I listen to almost every morning before school starts. It's what gives me the perspective I need most days...)

Dig said...

Sue: I never knew you liked the Bare Naked Ladies! Right on!

Kel: I'm cracking up about the roof! Good words to start a day by. I've never heard of the singer. Is the music as good as the lyrics?

Kelly said...

Yes, the cd is great. If you get a chance, download it. The cd is called "I am".

Sue said...

I just like the verse...makes me think of childhood and peaceful summers. "Just made you say underwear..."

Of course my other favorite...and true to my heart
"When you see the Southern Cross
For the first time
You understand now
Why you came this way."
Crosby, Stills Nash

"No, it won't mean a thing in a hundred years..."

This line always gives me perspective when I think something is a disaster.

Dig said...

Chris: I'm with you. That song rings true in so many situations. Like when I'm cleaning up vomit, fighting over what the kids should wear to school, or even this silly old roof!

The more I drink, the more I drink, and I'm the world's greatest lover and a dancing machine. I get loud, I get proud and it gets worse. I have one, I have thirteen, there ain't no in between. Cause the more I drink, the more I drink, the more I drink.
