Happy Song Lyric Sunday…

Y A Y…Really I look forward to this every week.  It’s one of my favs !!!  The husband who knows everything about everything (He’s a Northwestern Grad and he reads, reads, reads all the time about everything) so he’s always my go to guy when I can’t think of something for the prompt.  No really the guy know’s so much. I told him today if I had not met him, I would still be that bubble gum, pony tailed, 70’s hippie… 😉    The prompt for Song Lyric Sunday is…“Songs that includes somebody famous in it.”  This comes from Mr. Jim 

Black Velvet
Mississippi in the middle of a dry spell
Jimmy Rodgers on the Victrola up high
Mama’s dancin’ with baby on her shoulder
The sun is settin’ like molasses in the sky
The boy could sing, knew how to move ev’rything
Always wanting more, he’d leave you longing for
Black velvet and that little boy smile
Black velvet with that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please
Up in Memphis the music’s like a heat wave
White Lightnin’ bound to drive you wild
Mama’s baby’s in the heart of ev’ry school girl
“Love Me Tender” leaves ’em cryin’ in the aisle
The way he moved, it was a sin, so sweet and true
Always wanting more, he’d leave you longing for
Black velvet and that little boy smile
Black velvet and that slow southern style
A new religion that’ll bring you to your knees
Black velvet if you please

This song was written by…Songwriters: Christopher Ward / David Tyson.  I’m pretty sure Elvis is the famous person (for anyone who might know who Elvis is, OMG perish the thought !!!)  I was not a huge Elvis fan, but the husband is and will be forever.  He tells me he still thinks he’s alive up in Michigan somewhere 😉  Not…
Let’s enjoy what’s left of the weekend ❤  Thanks for stopping by ❤   Going to get ready for my Birthday week, OMG and try not to get too wonky about turning 60…Ahhhhh, help Mr. Wizard.  I guess the alternative is not that good and yes I’m celebrating for this entire week.  I figure it’s a milestone birthday this week so I’m taking the whole week 😉 Starting off today by going to brunch at Maggiano’s.
 I tell my kid’s that your birthday is a special day because that was the day the world was changed forever.  Well so is my birthday.  I’m going to have an incredible, amazing week !!!   Y A Y for birthday’s.  My Birthday is also a religious holy day of obligation.  It is the Assumption of Mary i.e. when Mary went up to heaven.  Mom always made sure I got to church by telling me that’s what you do when it’s your birthday so you can say thank you for your life.  It didn’t take me that long to figure out, but I still try to make it to church on my birthday.  Can’t hurt ❤ .
