Splish splash, I was taking a bath
Long about a Saturday night, yeah
A rub dub, just relaxing in the tub
Thinking everything was alrightWell, I stepped out the tub, put my feet on the floor
I wrapped the towel around me
And I opened the door, and then a
Splish, splash, I jumped back in the bath
Well, how was I to know there was a party going on?

They was a-splishing and a-splashing
Reeling with the feeling
Moving and a-grooving
Rocking and a-rolling, yeah

Bing bang, I saw the whole gang
Dancing on my living room rug, yeah
Flip flop, they was doing the bop
All the teens had the dancing bug

There was Lollipop with-a Peggy Sue
Good golly, Miss Molly was-a even there, too
A-well-a, splish splash, I forgot about the bath

Song Lyric Sunday – Peace

Standard

Song Lyric Sunday – Peace

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/22/17

***

Today, for Song Lyric Sunday, Helen has asked us to find peace. Thanks, Helen!

There’s lots of songs about peace. I’ve featured so  many on here, I thought I’d go in a different genre this time. This time it is Gospel. It’s one of my favorites that I’ve heard lots of times over the years.

***

“Peace in the Valley”, was written in 1937, by Thomas A. Dorsey. It was originally written for Mahalia Jackson, but many more artists have covered it in their own way. This version, by Willie Nelson, is one I really enjoyed listening to. This is his performance at Live at Farm Aid in 1994.

***

***

I’m tired and weary
But I must go along
Till the Lord comes to call me away, oh Lord

Well, the morning is bright
And the Lamb is the Light
And the night is as fair as the day

Oh, there will be peace in the valley for me, for me
There will be peace in the valley for me, oh Lord I pray
No more sadness, no more sadness, no more trouble there’ll be
There will be peace in the valley for me, for me

Well, the bear will be gentle
The wolf will be tame
And the lion shall lay down with the lamb, oh yes

And the [Incomprehensible] from the wild
Will be led by a child
I’ll be changed from this creature that I am

Oh, there will be peace in the valley for me some day
There will be peace in the valley for me, I pray
No more sadness, no more sadness, no more trouble there’ll be
There will be peace in the valley for me, for me

Song Lyric Sunday – Bragging

Standard

Song Lyric Sunday – Bragging

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/15/17

***

Thanks for hosting the SLS Challenge, Helen!

Here it is Monday, and I’m just doing the Song Lyric Sunday. 🙂

The prompt word that Helen suggests is ‘bragging’. Songs about bragging on yourself, I think. It was a bit hard to find one that I’d heard of that had anything to do with bragging. This one seems about right. I don’t know if that’s really the intention of this song, but to me the lyrics seem to say she is so wonderful, and thinks so highly of herself, that only the best things will do for her. That goes for boyfriends, as well as material objects that are offered to her.

***

“Material Girl”, by Madonna, was released from her album, “Like a Virgin”, in 1985. It was written by Peter Brown, and Robert Rans, and is on the Sire – Warner Bros. label.

***

Some boys kiss me, some boys hug me
I think they’re O.K.
If they don’t give me proper credit
I just walk away

They can beg and they can plead
But they can’t see the light, that’s right
‘Cause the boy with the cold hard cash
Is always Mister Right, ’cause we are

[Chorus:]
Living in a material world
And I am a material girl
You know that we are living in a material world
And I am a material girl

Some boys romance, some boys slow dance
That’s all right with me
If they can’t raise my interest then I
Have to let them be

Some boys try and some boys lie but
I don’t let them play
Only boys that save their pennies
Make my rainy day, ’cause they are

[Chorus x2]

Living in a material world (material)
Living in a material world
[repeat]

Boys may come and boys may go
And that’s all right you see
Experience has made me rich
And now they’re after me, ’cause everybody’s

[Chorus x2]

A material, a material, a material, a material world

Living in a material world (material)
Living in a material world
[repeat and fade]

Song Lyric Sunday – Traveling

Song Lyric Sunday – Traveling

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/8/17

***

Today’s Song Lyric Sunday prompt is for songs about traveling. Thanks for hosting and the prompts, Helen!

***

There are lots of songs having to do with traveling. I, of course wanted to post a bunch, but chose this one. It has an interesting history.

First written by Australian, Geoff  Mack, back in 1959, this song has been covered many times by many artists. Some covers changed the words and locations mentioned to reflect their own country’s town and city names. There is a version for Australia, New Zealand, Great Britain, North America, and many more.

***

“I’ve Been Everywhere”, by Johnny Cash, can be found on his 1996 album, “The Legend of Johnny Cash”. It is on the American/Sony/IDJ labels.

The lyrics are on the video.

All About That Bass – Song Lyric Sunday – Self Love

Standard

All About That Bass – Song Lyric Sunday – Self Love

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/1/17

***

Today’s prompt for Song Lyric Sunday is ‘Self Love’.

Thanks, Helen, for hosting this challenge, and the prompts you provide. 🙂

***

The way I’m taking this, is everyone should try to get rid of negative feelings about yourself. You know, all the interior thoughts a person may have, that they aren’t good enough, pretty enough, smart enough, and on and on.

There are lots of songs about positive affirmations, and I wanted to put more than one on here, but I chose this one. It is one of my favorites, because it says it doesn’t matter what you look like, what other people say about you, and that you are wonderful, just the way you are. It’s a happy, uplifting song about having a positive body image.

***

“All About That Bass”, by Meghan Trainor, was released in 2014, from the album, “Title”. It was written by Meghan Trainor, and Kevin Kadish, and is on the Epic label.

Because you know I’m all about that bass

‘Bout that bass, no treble

‘Bout that bass… bass… bass… bassYeah, it’s pretty clear, I ain’t no size two
But I can shake it, shake it, like I’m supposed to do
‘Cause I got that boom boom that all the boys chase
And all the right junk in all the right places

I see the magazine workin’ that Photoshop
We know that shit ain’t real, come on now, make it stop
If you got beauty, beauty, just raise ’em up
‘Cause every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top

Yeah, my mama she told me “don’t worry about your size”
(Shoo wop wop, sha-ooh wop wop)
She says, “Boys like a little more booty to hold at night”
(That booty, uh, that booty booty)
You know I won’t be no stick figure silicone Barbie doll
(Shoo wop wop, sha-ooh wop wop)
So if that’s what you’re into, then go ‘head and move along

Because you know I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass… Hey!

I’m bringing booty back
Go ‘head and tell them skinny bitches that
No, I’m just playing, I know you think you’re fat
But I’m here to tell you…
Every inch of you is perfect from the bottom to the top

Yeah my mama she told me, “don’t worry about your size”
(Shoo wop wop, sha-ooh wop wop)
She says, “Boys like a little more booty to hold at night”
(That booty booty, uh, that booty booty)
You know I won’t be no stick figure, silicone Barbie doll

‘Bout that bass, no treble
I said I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble
I’m all about that bass
‘Bout that bass, no treble

‘Bout that bass…

Because you know I’m all about that bass

SONG LYRIC SUNDAY – CHANCE, RISK, GAMBLE 

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 8/20/17

***

Welcome to Song Lyric Sunday! Today’s prompt theme has to do with gambling, chance, or risk. Thanks for the prompt, Helen.

***

“Take a Chance on Me”, by ABBA, was released in 1978, from the album, “ABBA the Album”. It was written by Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus. It is on these labels…Polar (Sweden), Epic (UK), and Atlantic (US).

***

***

If you change your mind, I’m the first in line
Honey I’m still free
Take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you’ve got no place to go, if you’re feeling down
If you’re all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I’m still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain’t no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try

Take a chance on me
(That’s all I ask of you honey)
Take a chance on me

 

Listen to some music, maybe just talking, get to know you better
‘Cause you know I’ve got
So much that I wanna do, when I dream I’m alone with you
It’s magic
You want me to leave it there, afraid of a love affair
But I think you know
That I can’t let go

If you change your mind, I’m the first in line
Honey I’m still free
Take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you’ve got no place to go, if you’re feeling down
If you’re all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I’m still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best and it ain’t no lie
If you put me to the test, if you let me try

Take a chance on me
(Come on, give me a break will you?)
Take a chance on me

Oh you can take your time baby, I’m in no hurry, know I’m gonna get you
You don’t wanna hurt me, baby don’t worry, I ain’t gonna let you
Let me tell you now
My love is strong enough to last when things are rough
It’s magic
You say that I waste my time but I can’t get you off my mind
No I can’t let go
‘Cause I love you so

If you change your mind, I’m the first in line
Honey I’m still free
Take a chance on me
If you need me, let me know, gonna be around
If you’ve got no place to go, if you’re feeling down
If you’re all alone when the pretty birds have flown
Honey I’m still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best, baby can’t you see
Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on me
(Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance on me)

Ba ba ba ba baa, ba ba ba ba baa
Honey I’m still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best, baby can’t you see
Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on me
(Take a chance, take a chance, take a chance on me)

Ba ba ba ba baa, ba ba ba ba baa ba-ba
Honey I’m still free
Take a chance on me
Gonna do my very best, baby can’t you see
Gotta put me to the test, take a chance on me

SONG LYRIC SUNDAY – DUETS

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 7/16/17

***

This week for Song Lyric Sunday, we were asked to find some duets. To join in the challenge, and see other entries, just click the above link for details.

Thanks, Helen, for another interesting prompt. 🙂

***

These two songs are a couple of my favorites. We all like them here, and tend to sing along when we hear them, really belting them out! So  much fun!

***

“Islands in the Stream”, by Kenny Rogers & Dolly Parton, was released in 1983. The album is, “Eyes that See in the Dark”, and is on the RCA Records label. It was written by Bary, Robin, & Maurice Gibb.

***

***

Baby when I met you there was peace unknown
I set out to get you with a fine tooth comb
I was soft inside
There was something going on
You do something to me that I can’t explain
Hold me closer and I feel no pain
And every beat of my heart
We got something going on
Tender love is blind
It requires a dedication
All this love we feel needs no conversation
We ride it together, ah ha
From one love to another, ah ha

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah ha
From one lover to another, ah ha

I can’t live without you if the love was gone
Everything is nothing when you got no one
And you walk in the night
Slowly losing sight of the real thing
But that won’t happen to us and we got no doubt
Too deep in love and we got no way out
And the message is clear
This could be the year for the real thing
No more will you cry
Baby I will hurt you never
We start and end as one
In love forever
We can ride it together, ah ha
From love to another, ah ha

Islands in the stream
That is what we are
No one in between
How can we be wrong
Sail away with me
To another world
And we rely on each other, ah ha
From one lover to another, ah ha

***

***

Wrote my whole life down in an old book,
Songs about you and me.
Been singing to every soul in Tennessee.
Nobody seems to listen,
No one ever smiles the way that you do.
So I guess you never hear me on the radio,
And I’d give up this crazy dream of mine to hold you once more.

Won’t you meet me in Montana.
I want to see the mountains in your eyes.
Woah, woah, I had all of this life I can handle.
Meet me underneath that big Montana sky.

I left home for Hollywood.
Lookin’ for a part to play.
Well you always said I had such a pretty face.
But, I guess I’m not that pretty,
‘Cause no one looks at me the way you do.
Well you’ll always be a movie star to me.
Darlin’ now I guess it’s time that I let go of that dream.

Won’t you meet me in Montana
I want to see the mountains your eyes.
Woah, Woah I had all of this life I can handle
Meet me underneath that big Montana sky.

Well were stuck here in these hills that they call mountains.
Darlin’ back home in your arms is right where I want to be.
Won’t you meet me in Montana
I want to see the mountains your eyes.
Woah, Woah I had all of this life I can handle
Meet me underneath that big Montana sky.

In Montana.
I want to see the mountains in your eyes.
Woah, woah, I had all of this life that I can handle.
Meet me underneath that big Montana sky.
