Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 11/25/18


For another fun and musical Sunday, for SLS, Helen has given us the prompt word of ‘first’. Thanks, Helen!

Join in by clicking the link above. If you enjoy music, you’ll be amazed at the variety of songs that are featured and discussed here every Sunday.


Well, I couldn’t think of anything at first, so looked on some lists for songs using the prompt word. I did find a few good ones, and even one I hadn’t heard before tht was cute and catchy about a first love that had ended. Also, one that I remember from way back, about a true love/first love. I had them both on here, but then… then… I found this one, and it is one I’ve heard many times, and love most all the artist’s songs. It fits the prompt very well, I think.

What put it over the top, and became my entry, was the video. It has kitties & birds! They are so adorable, I couldn’t resist. Hope you like it, too. 🙂


“Morning Has Broken”, by Cat Stevens, was released as a single from the album, “Teaser and the Firecat”, in 1971. It started out as a children’s hymn/poem, written by Eleanor Farjean, to be included in a hymn book, in 1931.
