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

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 😉 .

American girls and American guys
We’ll always stand up and salute
We’ll always recognize
When we see Old Glory flying
There’s a lot of men dead
So we can sleep in peace at night when we lay down our headMy daddy served in the army
Where he lost his right eye but he flew a flag out in our yard
Until the day that he died
He wanted my mother, my brother, my sister and me
To grow up and live happy
In the land of the freeNow this nation that I love has fallen under attack
A mighty sucker punch came flyin’ in from somewhere in the back
Soon as we could see clearly
Through our big black eye
Man, we lit up your world
Like the fourth of JulyHey Uncle Sam, put your name at the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty started shakin’ her fist
And the eagle will fly man, it’s gonna be hell
When you hear mother freedom start ringin’ her bell
And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you
Brought to you courtesy of the red white and blueJustice will be served and the battle will rage
This big dog will fight when you rattle his cage
And you’ll be sorry that you messed with
The U.S. of A.
‘Cause we’ll put a boot in your ass
It’s the American wayHey uncle sam put your name at the top of his list
And the Statue of Liberty started shakin’ her fist
And the eagle will fly it’s gonna be hell
When you hear mother freedom start ringin’ her bell
And it feels like the whole wide world is raining down on you
Brought to you courtesy of the red white and blueOh oh of the red, white and blue
Oh oh of my red, white and blue

God Bless the USA

God Bless the USA

If tomorrow all my things were gone,
I’d worked for all my life.
And I had to start again,
With just my children and my wife.I’d thank my lucky stars,
To be livin’ here today.
‘Cause the flag still stands for freedom,
And they can’t take that away.And I’m proud to be an American,
Where at least I know I’m free.
And I won’t forget the men who died,
Who gave that right to me.
And I gladly stand up,
Next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.From the lakes of Minnesota,
To the hills of Tennessee.
Across the plains of Texas,
From sea to shining sea.From Detroit down to Houston,
And New York to L.A.
Well there’s pride in every American heart,
And its time we stand and say.That I’m proud to be an American,
Where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
Who gave that right to me.
And I gladly stand up,
Next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.And I’m proud to be an American,
Where at least I know I’m free.
And I wont forget the men who died,
Who gave that right to me.
And I gladly stand up,
Next to you and defend her still today.
‘Cause there ain’t no doubt I love this land,
God bless the USA.

Happy Memorial Day…Enjoy <3

Woo Hoo favorite challenge of all…Music is a great and wonderful gift. Love everything about music. I love to sing songs, I love to play the piano, I love going to concerts !!!! Everything about it soothes my soul <3 The Prompt today comes from Mr. Jim (thank you so much for showing up every week) and is Cappuccino/Coffee/Expresso/Latte/Mocha…

Today I chose the song. Usually it’s the husband who comes up with the song but not today, it’s my pick…

No Sugar Tonight//New Mother Nature…The Guess Who

No that’s the name of the group, “Guess Who.” 😉 …

Lonely feeling deep inside
Find a corner where I can hide
Silent footsteps crowding me
Sudden darkness but I can seeNo sugar tonight in my coffee
No sugar tonight in my tea
No sugar to stand beside me
No sugar to run with meIn the silence of her mind
Quiet movements where I can find
Grabbing for me with her eyes
Now I’m falling from her skiesNo sugar tonight in my coffee
No sugar tonight in my tea
No sugar to stand beside me
No sugar to run with meJocko says yes, and I believe him
When we talk about the things I say
She hasn’t got the faith or the guts to leave him
When they’re standing in each other’s way
You’re tripping back now to places you’ve been to
You wonder what you’re gonna find
You know you’ve been wrong but it won’t be long
Before you leave ’em all far behind’Cause it’s the new Mother Nature taking over
It’s the new splendid lady come to call
It’s the new Mother Nature taking over
She’s gettin’ us all
She’s gettin’ us allJocko said no, when I came back last time
It’s looking like I lost a friend
No use callin’ ’cause the sky is fallin’
And I’m getting pretty near the end
A smoke-filled room in a corner basement
The situation must be right
A bag of goodies and a bottle of wine
We’re gonna get it on right tonight’Cause it’s the new Mother Nature taking over
It’s the new splendid lady come to call
It’s the new Mother Nature taking over
She’s gettin’ us all
She’s getting’ us allJocko says yes and I believe him
(Deep inside) when we talk about the things I say
(Find a corner) she hasn’t got the faith or the guts to leave him
(Where I can hide)when they’re standin’ in each other’s way
(Silent footsteps) you’re driven back now to places you’ve been to
(Crowdin’ me) you’re wonderin’ what you’re gonna find
(Sudden darkness) you know you’ve been wrong and it won’t be long
(But I can see) before you leave ’em all far behind’Cause it’s the new Mother Nature takin’ over
It’s the new splendid lady come to call
It’s the new Mother Nature takin’ over
She’s gettin’ us all, yeah, she’s gettin’ us allDa-un-do-dow dow, da-un-do-dow (Mother Nature)
Da-un-do-dow dow, da-un-do-dow (nature)
Da-un-do-dow dow, da-un-do-dow (sugar)
Da-un-do-dow dow, da-un-do-dow (sugar)
Da-un-do-dow dow, da-un-do-dow (sugar)
Da-un-do-dow dow, da-un-do-dow (nature)
Da-un-do-dow dow, da-un-do-dow

This one takes me back to the 70’s…One of my all time favorite groups !!!! Enjoy, Happy Song Lyric Sunday <3 Blessing for your week and thanks for stopping by <3 .
