Happy Song Lyric Sunday

So happy to be back this Sunday morning!!! I’m totally feeling the today’s prompt for SLS, brought to us by Mr. Jim. This weeks theme is, “Songs that hit the top of the charts.”

Lake Shore Drive


There’s a road I’d like to tell you about, lives in my home town
Lake Shore Drive the road is called and it’ll take you up or down
From rags on up to riches fifteen minutes you can fly
Pretty blue lights along the way, help you right on by
And the blue lights shining with a heavenly grace, help you right on by

And there ain’t no road just like it
Anywhere I found
Running south on Lake Shore Drive heading into town
Just slippin’ on by on LSD, Friday night trouble bound

And it starts up north from Hollywood, water on the driving side
Concrete mountains rearing up, throwing shadows just about five
Sometimes you can smell the green if your mind is feeling fine
There ain’t no finer place to be, than running Lake Shore Drive
And there’s no peace of mind, or place you see, than riding on Lake Shore Drive

And there ain’t no road just like it
Anywhere I found
Running south on Lake Shore drive heading into town
Just slicking on by on LSD, Friday night trouble bound

And it’s Friday night and you’re looking clean
Too early to start the rounds
A ten minute ride from the Gold Coast back make sure you’re pleasure bound
And it’s four o’clock in the morning and all of the people have gone away
Just you and your mind and Lake Shore Drive, tomorrow is another day
And the sunshine’s fine in the morning time, tomorrow is another day

And there ain’t no road just like it
Anywhere I found
Running south on Lake Shore drive heading into town
Just snaking on by on LSD, Friday night trouble bound

Good Song Lyric Sunday Morning

I’m up and ready to start this Sunday. I must be honest, I’m just not really feeling it today. It was easy to get a song for today’s prompt. I really love this guy. Me and the husband saw Toby Keith in Las Vegas back in the day. He put on a really great show.

The today’s prompt is, “Army, Soldier, War” for SLS comes from Mr. Jim.

Lyrics

I’m just trying to be a father
Raise a daughter and a son
Be a lover to their mother
Everything to everyone
Up and at ’em bright and early
I’m all business in my suit
Yeah, I’m dressed up for success
From my head down to my boots

I don’t do it for the money
There’s bills that I can’t pay
I don’t do it for the glory
I just do it anyway
Providing for our future’s my responsibility
Yeah, I’m real good under pressure
Being all that I can be

And I can’t call in sick on Mondays
When the weekends been too strong
I just work straight through the holidays
And sometimes all night long
You can bet that I stand ready
When the wolf growls at the door
Hey, I’m solid, hey I’m steady
Hey I’m true down to the core

And I will always do my duty
No matter what the price
I’ve counted up the cost
I know the sacrifice
Oh, and I don’t want to die for you
But if dyin’s asked of me
I’ll bear that cross with honor
‘Cause freedom don’t come free

I’m an American soldier, an American
Beside my brothers and my sisters
I will proudly take a stand
When liberty’s in jeopardy
I will always do what’s right
I’m out here on the front lines
sleep in peace tonight
American soldier, I’m an American soldier

yeah, an American soldier, an American
Beside my brothers and my sisters
I will proudly take a stand
When liberty’s in jeopardy
I will always do what’s right
I’m out here on the front lines
so sleep in peace tonight
American soldier, I’m an American

an American
an American soldier

Song Lyric Sunday

It’s Song Lyric Sunday again…The prompt comes from Di of pensitivity101….“Space, Planets and Alien.”

Space Odidity

Hosted this Sunday by JimThis song comes from way back in the days when I was up wasting my summer’s up in Wisconsin w/the cousins. Someone would start the countdown and we would have to sing the song…10.9.8.7.6.yadayadayada Great memories !!! <3 Love to grandmama <3

A few of the cousins at grandmama & grandpapa/Family Reunion 73′ The Farm

Space Oddity

David Bowie

Ground Control to Major Tom
Ground Control to Major Tom
Take your protein pills and put your helmet on
Ground Control to Major Tom (ten, nine, eight, seven, six)
Commencing countdown, engines on (five, four, three)
Check ignition and may God’s love be with you (two, one, liftoff)

This is Ground Control to Major Tom
You’ve really made the grade
And the papers want to know whose shirts you wear
Now it’s time to leave the capsule if you dare
“This is Major Tom to Ground Control
I’m stepping through the door
And I’m floating in a most peculiar way
And the stars look very different today
For here
Am I sitting in a tin can
Far above the world
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do

Though I’m past one hundred thousand miles
I’m feeling very still
And I think my spaceship knows which way to go
Tell my wife I love her very much she knows
Ground Control to Major Tom
Your circuit’s dead, there’s something wrong
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you hear me, Major Tom?
Can you “Here am I floating ’round my tin can
Far above the moon
Planet Earth is blue
And there’s nothing I can do”

Happy Song Lyric Sunday…

Always good for at least one song…The prompt for today is, “Movie Songs…”

I thought I would take from one of my favorite artist, Barbara Streisand. She is an amazing singer that has recorded many of my favorites…

Somewhere

This is from the musical, “West Side Story”

There’s a place for us
Somewhere a place for us
Peace and quiet and open air 
Wait for us somewhereThere’s a time for us
Someday a time for us
Time together and time to spare 
Time to look, time to care Someday 
Somewhere 
We’ll find a new way of living
We’ll find a way of forgiving 
Somewhere There’s a place for us
Somewhere a place for us
Time together with time to spare 
Time to look, time to care Someday 
Somewhere
We’ll find a new way of living
We’ll find a way of forgiving 
SomewhereHold my hand and I’ll take you there 
Somehow 
Someday 
Somewhere

Is it February yet 😉 …

Happy Song Lyric Sunday…

and yes I know it’s Monday, but I am having a slow start out of the gate for 2022. I don’t even have a planner going yet as it is out there somewhere in the supply chain !!!! Who knew, whatever it’s suppose to be here Wednesday OMG I really can’t wait. It’s cold and it’s January in Chicago. Yes we have been so lucky so far unfortunately I think our luck has just run out.

So I’m doing SLS today, Monday. The prompts for SLS was “Entertainment, Circus, Show,” suggested by Melanie B Cee  I usually go with the first song that comes to mind. That would be from back in the 70’s…Ahh the 70’s, back in the day 😉 . This is a group that I really liked, “Emerson, Lake & Palmer…”The Song is, “Welcome Back my Friends …

Welcome Back my Friends/Emerson, Lake & Palmer <3

Welcome Back My Friends Lyrics

Welcome back, my friends
to the show that never ends.
We’re so glad you could attend!
Come inside! Come inside!
There behind a glass
stands a real blade of grass
be careful as you pass.
Move along! Move along!
Come inside, the show’s about to start
guaranteed to blow your head apart
Rest a__ured you’ll get your money’s worth
The greatest show it happens a hell-of-alot.
(Chorus)
You’ve got to see the show, it’s a dynamo.
You’ve got to see the show, it’s rock and roll
Right before your eyes,
We’ll pull laughter from the skies
And he laughs until he cries,
then he dies, then he dies
(repeat Chorus)
(Extended instrumental, mostly keyboard)
Soon the Gypsy Queen
in a glaze of Vaseline
Will perform on guillotine
What a scene! What a scene!
Next upon the stand
will you please extend a hand
to Alexander’s Ragtime Band
Dixieland, Dixieland
Roll up! Roll up! Roll up!
See the show!
Performing on a stool
we’ve a sight to make you drool
Seven virgins and a mule
Keep it cool. Keep it cool.
We would like it to be known
the exhibits that were shown
were exclusively our own,
All our own. All our own.
Come and see the show!
Come and see the show!
Come and see the show!
See the show!

Hope you enjoy…Baby Steps <3 . Song Lyric Sunday is one of my favs of the challenges. Have a whole lot going on this year, stay tuned. Blessings Blogger’s on your 2022. Let’s all stay well, Love ya 😉 .

Song Lyric Sunday…

I’m trying to get back into the blogging everyday so this was a good way to jump back on !!! Hope all of you are enjoying the fall…

I know I’m just like a little late, but you know what they say…Better late than yadayadayada. I always use Song Lyric Sunday to jump back into the blogosphere 😉 This week or last Sunday the prompt was, ” Communication, News, Telephone, or Information .” I alway use what comes to mind first or ask the husband, but the husband (aka known as my girlfriend, you know the person I call continually to share random daily info and such 😉 ) is at work. I came up with this one really fast, and yes it shows my age, but I will say I was the youngest of 4 so I’m not really that old. I remember this song was a fav of my sister, #2 in the birth order.

I am getting these prompt’s for SLS from https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2021/10/17/let-me-make-it-to-the-telephone/ I’m not sure that is the original start of the SLS prompt’s and I’m sorry for that. It always amazes me how much I forget to about blogging when I start back…

Led Zeppelin/Communication Breakdown

The song I’m going with is, ” Communication Breakdown, ” by none other the metal group of the 70’s… 😉 Led Zeppelin <3 I know Matthew & Connor that this band is nothing like your Metal Groups, OMG but these guys were considered pretty hardcore back in the day ;0 !!!!

“Communication Breakdown”

Hey, girl, stop what you’re doing!
Hey, girl, you’ll drive me to ruin
I don’t know what it is that I like about you, but I like it a lot
Won’t you let me hold you, let me feel your loving touch

Communication breakdown
It’s always the same
I’m having a nervous breakdown
Drive me insane

Hey, babe, I got something I think you ought to know
Hey, babe, I wanna tell you that I love you so
I wanna hold you in my arms, yeah!
I’m never gonna let you go, ’cause I like your charms

Communication breakdown
It’s always the same
I’m having a nervous breakdown
Drive me insane

Communication breakdown
It’s always the same
I’m having a nervous breakdown
Drive me insane! Yeah!

Communication breakdown
(I want you to love me all night)
(I want you to love me all night)
Communication breakdown
(Whoa, ah, a whoa oh)
Communication breakdown
(I want you to love me)
(I want you to love)
Communication breakdown
(I want you to love, yeah)
(I want you to love)

Song Lyric Sunday …

Always a good time to jump back on… Song Lyric Sunday. Today’s prompt comes from Mr. Jim...https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com

This week’s prompt is: 🎃ctober 3rd, 2021 – – Songs where somebody is having sex or talking about it  😜

The Song I’m going to choose today is, “Paradise by the Dashboard Light.” Performed by Meatloaf and his band <3

Paradise by the Dashboard Light…

I remember every little thing
As if it happened only yesterday
Parking by the lake
And there was not another car in sight
And I never had a girl
Looking any better than you did
And all the kids at school
They were wishing they were me that night
And now our bodies are oh so close and tight
It never felt so good, it never felt so right
And we’re glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
C’mon! Hold on tight!
C’mon! Hold on tight!Thought it’s cold and lonely in the deep dark night
I can see paradise by the dashboard lightAin’t no doubt about it
We were doubly blessed
‘Cause we were barely seventeen
And we were barely dressed
Ain’t no doubt about it
Baby got to go and shout it
Ain’t no doubt about it
We were doubly blessed
‘Cause we were barely seventeen
And we were barely dressedBaby doncha hear my heart
You got it drowning out the radio
I’ve been waiting so long
For you to come along and have some fun
And I gotta let you know
No you’re never gonna regret it
So open up your eyes I got a big surprise
It’ll feel all right
Well I wanna make your motor runAnd now our bodies are oh so close and tight
It never felt so good, it never felt so right
And we’re glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
Glowing like the metal on the edge of a knife
C’mon! Hold on tight!
C’mon! Hold on tight!Though it’s cold and lonely in the deep dark night
I can see paradise by the dashboard light
Paradise by the dashboard light
You got to do what you can
And let Mother Nature do the rest
Ain’t no doubt about it
We were doubly blessed
‘Cause we were barely seventeen
And we were barelyWe’re gonna go all the way tonight
We’re gonna go all the way
And tonight’s the night…
We’re gonna go all the way tonight
We’re gonna go all the way
And tonight’s the night…OK, here we go, we got a real pressure cooker going here,
Two down, nobody on, no score, bottom of the ninth,
There’s the windup, and there it is, a line shot up the middle,
Look at him go. This boy can really fly! He’s rounding first and really
Turning it on now, he’s not letting up at all, he’s gonna try for
Second; the ball is bobbled out in center, and here comes the
Throw, and what a throw! He’s gonna slide in head first, here he
Comes, he’s out! No, wait, safe-safe at second base, this kid
Really makes things happen out there. Batter steps up to the
Plate, here’s the pitch-he’s going, and what a jump he’s got,
He’s trying for third, here’s the throw, it’s in the dirt-safe at
Third! Holy cow, stolen base! He’s taking a pretty big lead out
There, almost daring him to try and pick him off. The pitcher
Glances over, winds up, and it’s bunted, bunted down the third
Base line, the suicide squeeze is on! Here he comes, squeeze
Play, it’s gonna be close, holy cow, I think he’s gonna make it!Stop right there!
I gotta know right now!
Before we go any further!
Do you love me?
Will you love me forever?
Do you need me?
Will you never leave me?
Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
Will you take me away and will you make me your wife?
Do you love me!?
Will you love me forever!?
Do you need me!?
Will you never leave me!?
Will you make me happy for the rest of my life!?
Will you take me away and will you make me your wife!?
I gotta know right now
Before we go any further
Do you love me!?
Will you love me forever!?Let me sleep on it
Baby, baby let me sleep on it
Let me sleep on it
And I’ll give you an answer in the morning
Let me sleep on it
Baby, baby let me sleep on it
Let me sleep on it
And I’ll give you an answer in the morning
Let me sleep on it
Baby, baby let me sleep on it
Let me sleep on it
And I’ll give you an answer in the morningI gotta know right now
Do you love me?
Will you love me forever?
Do you need me?
Will you never leave me?
Will you make me so happy for the rest of my life?
Will you take me away and will you make me your wife?
I gotta know right now!
Before we go any further
Do you love me?
And will you love me forever?Let me sleep on it
Baby, baby let me sleep on it
Let me sleep on it
And I’ll give you an answer in the morning
Let me sleep on itWill you love me forever?Let me sleep on itWill you love me forever!I couldn’t take it any longer
Lord I was crazed
And when the feeling came upon me
Like a tidal wave
I started swearing to my god and on my mother’s grave
That I would love you to the end of time
I swore that I would love you to the end of time!
So now I’m praying for the end of time
To hurry up and arrive
‘Cause if I gotta spend another minute with you
I don’t think that I can really survive
I’ll never break my promise or forget my vow
But God only knows what I can do right now
I’m praying for the end of time
It’s all that I can do
Praying for the end of time,
So I can end my time with you!It was long ago and it was far away
And it was so much better that it is todayIt never felt so good
It never felt so right
And we were glowing like
A metal on the edge of a knife

Song Lyric Sunday

This is a good one Mr. Jim. Me and the husband just went down his memory lane of when the girls use to dump him. It was always the same. “Let’s be friends, I need some time. I’m scared. ” He says there must be manual girls are given to dump a guy. He is too funny and always makes me laugh.

https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2021/07/17/heartbreaker/

My song for today is, “Billy Ray Cyrus/Words by Heart”

Words by Heart

I was goin’ through the closet
Back in my old home
Found my letterman’s jacket, so I slipped it on
Deep in the pocket, still folded up tight
Was the letter you wrote to tell me goodbye
The minute I saw it I just had to smile
It smelled like old leather, as smooth as a child
I took a deep breath, then put it away
There was no need to read, I knew just what it would sayI know the words by heart, I know every line
From “this ain’t easy” to “you’ll get along just fine”
I know every comma, every question mark
No, I don’t have to look, I know the words by heartScenes like home movies flash through my head
The homecoming game, that night on my bed
The words that you wrote still cut me in two
How you said you still cared but that we were throughI know the words by heart, I know every line
From “this ain’t easy” to “you’ll get along just fine”
I know every comma, every question mark
No, I don’t have to look, I know the words by heartAin’t it funny how a memory 
Can play tricks on your mind
I don’t remember a thing from my classes
But I can quote you every lineI took off my jacket and put it away
With your note in the pocket 
Like I found it that day
Poured me a beer, then pictured your face
And drank a silent toast to things that time can’t eraseI know the words by heart, I know every line
From “this ain’t easy” to “you’ll get along just fine”
I know every comma, every question mark
No, I don’t have to look, I know the words by heartI know the words by heart, I know every line
From “this ain’t easy” to “you’ll get along just fine”
I know every comma, every question mark
No, I don’t have to look, I know the words by heart

I also have a second song that I enjoy watching. It reminds me of me back in the day and also sends a message to all my critics…Success is the best revenge. I will never, never quit <3 Blessing Blogger’s on your Sunday…I know I just posted this song by Toby Keith a couple of weeks ago, but I really love it…Obviously 😉

Happy Song Lyric Sunday

Happy Song Lyric Sunday …

This seemed like an appropriate song for today’s prompt from Mr. Jim…

The Bug…Mary Chapin Carpenter

Well it’s a strange old game you learn it slow
One step forward and it’s back you go
You’re standing on the throttle
You’re standing on the brake
In the groove ’til you make a mistake

Sometimes you’re the windshield
Sometimes you’re the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re just a fool in love
Sometimes you’re the Louisville Slugger
Sometimes you’re the ball
Sometimes it all comes together
Sometimes you’re gonna lose it all

You gotta know happy – you gotta know glad
Because you’re gonna know lonely
And you’re gonna know sad
When you’re rippin’ and you’re ridin’
And you’re coming on strong
You start slippin’ and slidin’
And it all goes wrong because

Sometimes you’re the windshield
Sometimes you’re the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re just a fool in love
Sometimes you’re the Louisville Slugger
Sometimes you’re the ball
Sometimes it all comes together
Sometimes you’re gonna lose it all

One day you got the glory and then you got none
One day you’re a diamond and then you’re a stone
Everything can change in the blink of an eye
So let the good times roll before we say goodbye because

Sometimes you’re the windshield
Sometimes you’re the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re just a fool in love
Sometimes you’re the Louisville Slugger
Sometimes you’re the ball
Sometimes it all comes together
Sometimes you’re gonna lose it all

Sometimes you’re the windshield
Sometimes you’re the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re just a fool in love

Sometimes you’re the windshield
Sometimes you’re the bug
Sometimes it all comes together baby
Sometimes you’re just a fool in love

Happy Fourth of July…Y A Y & Song Lyric Sunday

Happy 4th of July

This is one of my favorite holiday’s !!! It’s summer, I love to BBQ on the grill, Fireworks are just the best…What’s not to love. Still missing the carnivals and summer concerts !!! Next year will be better I hope that we can get back to the summer festivals and concerts. I’m really missing those, at least I have the memories which will have to do for now. Jim’s pick for today’s Song Lyric Sunday is, “American Music <3 ” I remember a staple of our’s in summers past. They were of course the, “Ides of March” summer concerts at the festivals we use to go too. So much fun. The Ides are a Chicago staple, Jim Peterik who is the lead singer of the band is a native of Berwyn (a suburb of Chicago).

Summerfest, Milwaukee…Me and Jim Peterik <3

Because they were a local we always got seats right up front and Jim Peterik kind of got to know us. In fact at one of their concerts he came right down in the audience and kissed me during the song, “Searching.” I’ll never forget, it was the thrill of a lifetime 😉 .

My song for today is one of their biggest hits and he always waits til the end of the concert, i.e. the last song to play it…That would be, “Vehicle” of course !!!

He really is an amazing artist, performer, singer, writer, yadayadayada <3 An all around great guy. Makes you feel like your just one of his friends <3 I’ll be looking forward to seeing him and his band, the Ides performing again <3 …

Hope all of you are enjoying your summer and having the best 4th of July ever. Eat all the great food you can and celebrate this country. Because I’ve always said, “If your lucky enough to live in America, then you are lucky enough !!!”
