Simple Man – Song Lyric Sunday – Plan

Simple Man – Song Lyric Sunday – Plan IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 8/26/18

***

Happy Sunday! It’s time again for SLS, and Helen has given the prompt word, ‘plan’. Thanks, Helen!

At first I didn’t think I could find a song for this, and so I started googling. I found a lot of songs with the word ‘plan’ in the titles, but none I recognized. So, I kept thinking. A plan…songs about a plan…planning something…what rhymes with plan? Man…man with a plan… Maybe it didn’t have to actually have the word ‘plan’ in there, and could be a sort of a guideline or suggestion of something to do, and plan for. Yes!

Here’s a song I love very much ever since I first heard it. It seems to be a mother talking to her son, giving him her thoughts on how to live a good and satisfying life. Her words to him were a plan for him to follow, if he could, to ensure his happiness in the future.
