[Verse 1]
Well, I ain’t never been the Barbie Doll type
No, I can’t swig that sweet Champagne
I’d rather drink beer all night
In a tavern
Or in a honky-tonk
Or on a four-wheel-drive tailgate

Oh, I’ve got posters on my wall
Of Skynyrd, Kid and Strait
Some people look down on me
But I don’t give a rip
I’ll stand barefooted in my own front yard
With a baby on my hip

[Chorus 1]
Cause I’m a redneck woman
I ain’t no high class broad
I’m just a product of my raisin’
I say “hey, y’all” and “yee-haw”

And I keep my Christmas lights on
On my front porch all year long

And I know all the words to every Charlie Daniels song
So here’s to all my sisters
Out there keeping it country
Let me get a big “hell yeah” from the redneck girls like me
Hell yeah
(Hell yeah!)

Victoria’s Secret
Well, their stuff’s real nice
Oh, but I can buy the same damn thing
On a Walmart shelf half-price
And still look sexy (sexy)
Just as sexy as those models on TV

No, I don’t need no designer tag
To make my man want me
You may think I’m trashy
A little too hard core
But in my neck of the woods
I’m just the girl next door

[Chorus 2]
Hey, I’m a redneck woman
I ain’t no high class broad
I’m just a product of my raising
I say “hey, y’all” and “yee-haw”

And I keep my Christmas lights on
On my front porch all year long

And I know all the words to every Tanya Tucker song
So here’s to all my sisters
Out there keeping it country
Let me get a big “hell yeah” from the redneck girls like me
Hell yeah
(Hell yeah!)

I’m a redneck woman
I ain’t no high class broad
I’m just a product of my raising
I say “hey, y’all” and “yee-haw”

And I keep my Christmas lights on
On my front porch all year long

And I know all the words to every Ol’ Bocephus song
So here’s to all my sisters
Out there keeping it country
Let me get a big “hell yeah” from the redneck girls
Like me

[Outro]
(Hell yeah!)
Hell yeah!
(Hell yeah!)
Hell yeah!
(Hell yeah!)
I said hell yeah!

This next song is by Jana Stanfield. I’ve had the pleasure of meeting her on several occasions, and is a wonderful and friendly person. She performs all over the world, and is a Keynote Speaker.

Bonus Song:

“U B U , I M E”, by Jana Stanfield, is on her 1994 album, “The Trick is to Learn to Enjoy the Ride”

In this song, she is writing a letter to James Taylor.

 

So many people I would rather be, people smarter, more talented than me
James Taylor, for example, next to him I couldn’t hold a candle
Found James’ address in a book, opened up my heart and with a hand that shook
I wrote “Dear James, I want to be like you, please write me back and tell me what to do”
Well i checked the mailbox every day, waited for a letter but it never came
He sends letters his own way. Checked my answering machine and it was sweet baby James

CHORUS:
B.S.U.R., S.U.C., S.I.M., I.M.
U.B.U., I.M.E
U.B.U., I.M.E
WE’RE EXACTLY WHO WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE
U.B.U., I.M.E
U.B.U., I.M.E

I started thinking as I wrote this song, how cool it’d be if James could sing along
What a brainstorm it would be so fun, a duet with James Taylor on my new album
What if he invited me to join his tour and be his opening act around the world
My head would swell to over twice its size if he would feature me on Saturday night live

Then I’d be a megastar, I’d shop at Walmart in a chauffered car
I could get lost in this fantasy, but James’ voice brings me back to reality

Chorus:
B.S.U.R., S.U.C., S.I.M., I.M.
U.B.U., I.M.E
U.B.U., I.M.E
WE’RE EXACTLY WHO WE’RE SUPPOSED TO BE
U.B.U., I.M.E
U.B.U., I.M.E

Just in case this song is a success
I’d better get my answers all prepared
When a thousand young girls are calling me for advice
This is the message they’ll hear

Buddy Holly – Song Lyric Sunday – Famous Mentions

For today’s SLS, Jim has asked for songs that mention famous people in the lyrics. Thanks, Jim!

If you’d like to join in this weekly fun challenge, and see other entries, just click the above link.

The first song I though of was this one by Weezer. It mentions Buddy Holly and Mary Tyler Moore.

The video is shown as being the group performing in the diner that was a featured spot on the TV show, “Happy Days”.

I liked that show, and I like this song, too.

***

“Buddy Holly”, by Weezer, was released from their album, “Weezer (the Blue Album), in 1994. It was written by Rivers Cuomo, and is on the DGC label.

Fun fact – This was released on what would have been Buddy Holly’s 58th birthday, September 7th.

Fun fact – In a very early version of this song, the celebrities mentioned were Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire.

***

The song mentions Buddy Holly.

From wiki – Charles Hardin Holley (September 7, 1936 – February 3, 1959), known professionally as Buddy Holly, was an American musician and singer-songwriter who was a central and pioneering figure of mid-1950s rock and roll. He was born in Lubbock, Texas, to a musical family during the Great Depression, and learned to play guitar and sing alongside his siblings. His style was influenced by gospel music, country music, and rhythm and blues acts, which he performed in Lubbock with his friends from high school.

The song mentions Mary Tyler Moore.

From wiki – Mary Tyler Moore (December 29, 1936 – January 25, 2017) was a noted American stage, film and television actress, as well as a producer and social advocate. She was widely known for her prominent television sitcom roles in The Dick Van Dyke Show (1961–1966) and The Mary Tyler Moore Show (1970–1977).[

[Verse 1: Rivers Cuomo]
What’s with these homies dissin’ my girl?
Why do they gotta front?

What did we ever do to these guys
That made them so violent?

[Pre-Chorus: Matt Sharp, Rivers Cuomo]
Woo-hoo, but you know I’m yours
Woo-hoo, and I know you’re mine
Woo-hoo, and that’s for all time

[Chorus: Cuomo]
Woo-ee-ooh, I look just like Buddy Holly
Oh-oh, and you’re Mary Tyler Moore
I don’t care what they say about us anyway
I don’t care ’bout that

[Verse 2: Cuomo]
Don’t you ever fear, I’m always near
I know that you need help
Your tongue is twisted, your eyes are slit
You need a guardian

[Pre-Chorus: Sharp, Cuomo]
Woo-hoo, and you know I’m yours
Woo-hoo, and I know you’re mine
Woo-hoo, and that’s for all time

Woo-ee-ooh, I look just like Buddy Holly
Oh-oh, and you’re Mary Tyler Moore
I don’t care what they say about us anyway
I don’t care ’bout that
I don’t care ’bout that

[Bridge: Cuomo and Sharp]
Bang! Bang!
Knock on the door
Another big bang, get down on the floor
Oh no! What do we do?

Don’t look now but I lost my shoe
I can’t run and I can’t kick
What’s a matter, babe, are you feelin’ sick?
What’s a matter, what’s a matter, what’s a matter you?
What’s a matter, babe, are you feelin’ blue? Oh-oh!
(And that’s for all time
And that’s for all time)

[Chorus: Cuomo]
Woo-ee-oo, I look just like Buddy Holly
Oh-oh, and you’re Mary Tyler Moore
I don’t care what they say about us anyway
I don’t care ’bout that
I don’t care ’bout that
I don’t care ’bout that
I don’t care ’bout that

Here With Me – Song Lyric Sunday – TV Show Songs – Roswell

https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2019/08/03/tv-time/

For today’s SLS, Jim Adams, of “A Unique Title For Me”, has asked for songs from TV shows. Thanks, Jim!

You can find Jim’s blog at the above link, and also find out how to join in this weekly fun musical challenge. 🙂

There are so many good theme songs for TV shows! Most all are memorable if we were a fan of the shows, as we heard them every time the show was aired. Most were also easy to sing along to.

This one I chose today, is from the TV show, “Roswell”. It’s one of my favorite shows. It ran from 1999 to 2002. I bought all three seasons of the DVDs, and have watched them many times.

The story is set in modern times in Roswell, New Mexico. It’s focus is the teenagers in high school, and the ups and downs of their relationships with boyfriends and girlfriends.

However, three new students in their high school are a bit different. They are aliens from another planet. They look normal, but have things about them that make people wonder what and who they really are. They are friends with a few other regular students, and let them know their secret. A lot of the episodes are of them figuring out how to evade the government, and scientists who suspect them of being aliens, but want to do experiments, if they ever catch them.

There is a lot of drama, and also a lot of humor in these stories. I love everything about this TV series.  Hope you can watch it one day. 🙂

The theme song for all three seasons is, “Here With Me”, by Dido. It is a haunting kind of tune, especially paired with the theme of the TV show.

“Here With Me,” by Dido, was released from her album, “No Angel”, in 1999. It was written by Dido Armstrong, Pascal Gabriel, and Paul Statham, and is on the EMG label

I didn’t hear you leave
I wonder how am I still here
I don’t want to move a thing
It might change my memory

Oh I am what I am
I’ll do what I want, but I can’t hide
I won’t go, I won’t sleep
I can’t breathe, until you’re resting here with me
I won’t leave, I can’t hide
I cannot be, until you’re resting here with me
I don’t want to call my friends
They might wake me from this dream
And I can’t leave this bed
Risk forgetting all that’s been

Oh I am what I am

I’ll do what I want, but I can’t hide
I won’t go, I won’t sleep

I can’t breathe, until you’re resting here with me
I won’t leave, I can’t hide

I won’t go, I won’t sleep
I can’t breathe, until you’re resting here with me
I won’t leave, I can’t hide
I cannot be, until you’re resting here with me
Oh I am what I am
I’ll do what I want, but I can’t hide
I won’t go, I won’t sleep
I can’t breathe, until you’re resting here with me
I won’t leave, I can’t hide
I cannot be, until you’re resting here with me
I won’t leave, I can’t hide
I cannot be, until you’re resting here with me
I won’t go, I won’t sleep
I can’t breathe, until you’re resting here with me
I won’t leave, I can’t hide
I cannot be, until you’re resting here with me

Lots of great songs with the prompt words.

I found this one, which I’d never heard before, and it is pretty funny. It’s a catchy tune, and the video is fun to watch. I won’t spoil the ending, though. 🙂

***

“I Knew the Bride (When She Used to Rock and Roll)”, by Nick Lowe (and his Cowboy Outfit), was released from his album, “The Rose of England”, in 1985. It was written by Nick Lowe, and is on the F-Beat label.

knew the bride
By Nick Lowe and his Cowboy Outfit
(I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll)
(I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll)

Well the bride looks a picture in the gown that her mama wore
When she was married herself nearly 27 years before
They had to change the style a little but it looked just fine
Stayed up all night but they got it finished just in time
(Now on the arm of her daddy she’s walkin’ down the isle)
(I see her catch my eye and give me a secret smile)
(Maybe it’s too old fashioned but a-we once were close friends)
(Oh but the way that she looks today) she never could have then
(Well I could see her now in her tight blue jeans)
(Pumping all her money in the record machine)
(Spinnin’ like a top, you should have seen her go)

(I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll)
(I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll)

Well a proud daddy only wanna give his little girl the best
So he put down a grand on a coze little lovers nest
You could have called the reception an unqualified success
Had a flash hotel for 150 guests
(Well take a look at the bridegroom smilin’ pleased as pie)
(Shakin’ hands all around with a glassy look it his eye)
(He got a real good job and his shirt and tie is nice)
(But I remember a time when she never would have looked at him twice)
(Well I can see her now, drinkin’ with the boys)
(Breakin’ their hearts like playin’ with toys)
(She used to do the pony, used to do the stroll)

(I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll)
(I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll)

(I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll)
(I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll)

(harmonica solo)

(Well I can see her now with her walkman on)
(Jumpin’ up and down to her favorite song)
(I still remember when she used to want to make a lot of noise)
(Hopin’ and a-boppin’ with the street corner boys)
(She used to wanna party, she used to wanna go)

(I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll)
(I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll)

(I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll)
(I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll)

(I knew the bride) when she used to do the pony
(I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll)

(I knew the bride) when she used to wanna party
(I knew the bride when she used to rock and roll

There are so many great songs with this group of subjects, that I couldn’t pick just one. So, I’ve chosen two of my favorites.

The first one seems to be speaking of being able to read another person’s mind, being a ghost, and also about the ghosts of a lost relationship and why it went wrong.

 

***
“If You Could Read My Mind”, by Gordon Lightfoot, was released in 1970 from his album, “Sit Down Young Stranger”.

It was written by Gordon Lightfoot, and is on the Reprise label.

***

***

If you could read my mind love
What a tale my thoughts could tell
Just like an old time movie
‘Bout a ghost from a wishin’ well
In a castle dark or a fortress strong
With chains upon my feet
You know that ghost is me
And I will never be set free
As long as I’m a ghost that you can’t see
If I could read your mind love
What a tale your thoughts could tell
Just like a paperback novel
The kind that drugstores sell
When you reach the part where the heartaches come
The hero would be me
But heroes often fail
And you won’t read that book again
Because the ending’s just too hard to take I’d walk away like a movie star
Who gets burned in a three way script
Enter number two
A movie queen to play the scene
Of bringing all the good things out in me
But for now love, let’s be real
* I never thought I could act this way *
And I’ve got to say that I just don’t get it
I don’t know where we went wrong
But the feelin’s gone
And I just can’t get it back If you could read my mind love
What a tale my thoughts could tell
Just like an old time movie
‘Bout a ghost from a wishin’ well
In a castle dark or a fortress strong
With chains upon my feet
But stories always end
And if you read between the lines
You’ll know that I’m just tryin’ to understand
The feelin’s that you lack
I never thought I could feel this way
And I’ve got to say that I just don’t get it
I don’t know where we went wrong
But the feelin’s gone
And I just can’t get it back
***

This second song, I believe is talking about being reincarnated into different eras in history. Could be the same soul in all of them, and how they died, but also their soul lives on, coming back again and again.

“The Highwayman”, by a collaboration of these four singers – Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, and Kris Kristopherson. (The Highwaymen).  It was released in 1985, from their album, “The Highwayman” was written by Jimmy Webb, and is on the Columbia label.

***

***

Verse 1: Willie Nelson]
I was a highwayman
Along the coach roads I did ride
With sword and pistol by my side
Many a young maid lost her baubles to my trade
Many a soldier shed his lifeblood on my blade
The bastards hung me in the spring of twenty-five
But I am still alive

[Verse 2: Kris Kristofferson]
I was a sailor
I was born upon the tide
And with the sea I did abide
I sailed a schooner round the Horn to Mexico
I went aloft and furled the mainsail in a blow
And when the yards broke off they said that I got killed
But I am living still

[Verse 3: Waylon Jennings]
I was a dam builder across the river deep and wide
Where steel and water did collide
A place called Boulder on the wild Colorado

I slipped and fell into the wet concrete below
They buried me in that great tomb that knows no sound
But I am still around, I’ll always be around and around and around and
Around and around

I fly a star-ship across the Universe divide
And when I reach the other side
I’ll find a place to rest my spirit if I can
Perhaps I may become a highwayman again
Or I may simply be a single drop of rain
But I will remain
And I’ll be back

This is a poem I wrote back in 2015, about the Tiger, which has always been my spirit animal.

I was born in a Tiger year!

~

TIGER

In misty dreams you

Came to me

When I was only two or three.

A forest dark, and deep, and

Green, I wondered what my dreams

Could mean. You were my friend, my

Spirit kin…a guardian without, within…

I was born into your year, your Tiger Spirit

Always near. Magnificent eyes, shining bright, I

Weep at what now is your plight; endangered in this

Cruel world…victim of the weapons hurled. If only we could

Be at peace…return to dreams without surcease, to that mystery

Forest, in the night, we could try to make it right. I know that you will

Always be, in my dreams…a part of me … Tiger…my Spirit Animal …<3

My mom’s painting of a tiger

Starting off with a slower song. As I was looking for Tiger songs I found this one, which is a new one for me. I really like it though, as it does remind me of my tiger dreams that I began having when I was very little.

***

“Tiger in the Night”, by Katie Melua, is on her 2003 album, ‘Call Off the Search”. The music and lyrics are by Mike Batt.

***

***

You are the tiger burning bright
Deep in the forest of my night
You are the one who keeps me strong in this worldYou sleep by the silent cooling streams
Down in the darkness of my dreams
All of my life I never knew
You were the dream I’d see come true
You are the tiger burning brightI was the one who looked so hard I could not see
Now I could never live without the love you give to meI lived like a wild and lonely soul
Lost in a dream beyond control
You were the one who brought me home down to earthFor you are the tiger burning bright
Deep in the forest of my night
All of my life I never knew
You were the dream I’d see come true
You are the tiger burning bright

This song probably everyone has heard, and it’s a good one. She sings of being afraid, but then taking on the courage of the Tiger, and surviving all kinds of adversities that life may throw her way…with spirit and conviction that she will make it through.

“Roar”, by Katy Perry, was released from her album, “Prism”, in 2013. It was written by Katy Perry, Bonnie McKee, Lukasz Gottwald, Max Martin, and Henry Walter, and is on the Capitol label.

Verse 1]
I used to bite my tongue and hold my breath
Scared to rock the boat and make a mess
So I sat quietly, agreed politely

I guess that I forgot I had a choice
I let you push me past the breaking point
I stood for nothing, so I fell for everything

[Pre-Chorus]
You held me down, but I got up (hey)
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, your hear that sound
Like thunder, gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready cause I had enough
I see it all, I see it now

[Chorus ]
I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter
Dancing through the fire
Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar

[Post-Chorus]
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re gonna hear me roar

[Verse 2]
Now I’m floating like a butterfly
Stinging like a bee
I earned my stripes
I went from zero, to my own hero

[Pre-Chorus]
You held me down, but I got up (hey)
Already brushing off the dust
You hear my voice, your hear that sound
Like thunder, gonna shake the ground
You held me down, but I got up
Get ready cause I had enough
I see it all, I see it now

[Chorus]
I got the eye of the tiger, a fighter
Dancing through the fire
Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar

[Post-Chorus]
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
You’re gonna hear me roar

Dancing through the fire
Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar
Louder, louder than a lion
Cause I am a champion, and you’re gonna hear me roar

Oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

For today’s SLS, we are prompted by our host, Jim Adams, of “A Unique Title For Me”, to find songs about gambling/dice/cards/win/lose. Thanks, Jim!

Lots of songs to choose from, and all are good.

I’ve had this post ready to go since last night, and now it seems others had the same idea! Yay! It’s a great song! 🙂

***

I liked this song ever since it came out. It’s got a fun and catchy tune and lyrics, and it’s easy to sing along to.

Have you ever taken a chance…gambled on love? Sometimes it all works out, but sometimes it doesn’t. Still, you keep going back for more, heartaches or not. You may have the cards dealt in your favor and you get a winning hand, while other times the cards are not what your were hoping for, and you go bust. Is it worth it? Sure, because as they say, if you don’t play there is really no chance of winning.

I especially remember this song because we were in south Texas at the time it was still a pretty popular song, and played on the radio all the time. We were all on alert, because there was a hurricane forecast to hit somewhere along the Gulf Coast on that day, and Corpus Christi may be in the path. So, we were monitoring the TV news, and also listening to the radio. This song was one they played a lot.

I turned out that that Hurricane Alicia (1983) made landfall near Galveston, instead of Corpus Christi. Still, it was pretty tense where we were while watching the coverage.

“Queen of Hearts”, by Juice Newton, was a single from her album, “Juice”, released in 1981. It was written by Hank DeVito, and is on the Capitol label.

***

Midnight, and I’m a-waiting on the twelve-oh-five
Hoping it’ll take me just a little farther down the line

Moonlight, you’re just a heartache in disguise
So won’t you keep my heart from breaking
If it’s only for a very short time

Playing with the queen of hearts
Knowing it ain’t really smart
The joker ain’t the only fool
Who’ll do anything for you

Laying out another lie
Thinking ’bout a life of crime
‘Cause that’s what I’ll have to do
To keep me away from you

Honey, you know it makes you mad
Why is everybody telling everybody what you have done
Baby, I know it makes you sad
But when they’re handing out the heartaches
You know you got to have you some

Playing with the queen of hearts
Knowing it ain’t really smart
The joker ain’t the only fool
Who’ll do anything for you

Thinking ’bout a life of crime
‘Cause that’s what I’ll have to do
To keep me away from you

Lovers, I know you’ve had a few
So hide your heart beneath the covers
And tell ’em they’re the only one
And others, they know just what I’m going through
And it’s a-hard to be a lover
When you say you’re only in it for fun

Playing with the queen of hearts
Knowing it ain’t really smart
The joker ain’t the only fool
Who’ll do anything for you

Playing with the queen of hearts
Knowing it ain’t really smart
The joker ain’t the only fool
Who’ll do anything for you

Laying out another lie
Thinking ’bout a life of crime
‘Cause that’s what I’ll have to do
To keep me away from you

Playing with the queen of hearts
Playing with the queen of hearts
Playing with the queen of hearts
Playing with the queen of hearts

In honor of Father’s Day here, Jim has given us the prompt of finding songs for Dad/Father/BBQ.

Thanks, Jim!

Happy Father’s Day to all the wonderful fathers! 🙂

I’ve heard a lot of Bob Rivers Christmas parody songs, and had a couple of tapes of them, a long time ago. They are pretty funny, so I was happy to find this one about cooking out on the grill, as it fits the theme today.

Most all of his fun songs are done to the tune of popular and well known songs.

There will probably be a lot of people cooking BBQ out on the grill today, including us here. 🙂

From the Wiki article:

Robert Rivers (born July 7, 1956 in Branford, Connecticut) is a retired American rock and roll radio on-air personality in the Pacific Northwest, as well as a prolific producer and songwriter of parody songs, most famous for his Christmas song parodies.[1] His album Twisted Christmas was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America.[2]

Rivers’ last regular radio program, The Bob Rivers Show with Bob, Spike and Joe, was broadcast on Seattle oldies station KJR-FM until August 8, 2014, ending a 25-year run in the Seattle market.[3]

Rivers played keyboards for a cover band affiliated with the show, Spike and the Impalers,[4][5][6] until 2015.

“Burgers on the Grill,” by Bob Rivers, was recorded in 2003. This one is done to the tune of the Doors song, “Riders on the Storm”.

Riders On The Storm – Doors)

Burgers on the grill
Burgers on the grill
I’ve really had my fill
Of burgers on the grill
When the relatives go home
I’m stuck with chicken bones
And burgers on the grill

There’s a steak tip on the coals
It fell down through the holes
And now it’s caught on fire
Smells like a funeral pyre
I was tryin’ to get it back
But it’s turnin’ pretty black
Steak tip on the coals

Yeah!

Wiener on the foil
The skin begins to boil
I dropped it in the soil
I thought that it was spoiled
So I washed it with a hose
And fed it to Aunt Rose
Wiener on the foil

Burgers on the grill
Burgers on the grill

From the wiki article I read, it said that this album, “Rick is 21”, was the first time Ricky Nelson was now called ‘Rick’ instead of Ricky.

 

***

“My One Desire”, by Ricky Nelson, is on his album, “Rick is 21”. It was released in 1961, and I believe it was written by Dorsey Burnette.

***

I wanna walk with ya, talk with ya, all about love
‘Cause there’s no greater time than tonight
When I get you under the stars above
Put your lips to mine with your kiss of fire, woah yeah
Just to be with you baby tonight is my one desire

I want a date with ya, would be great with ya baby tonight
When I get you in my arms tonight
Everything’s gonna turn out right
Put your lips to mine with your kiss of fire, woah yeah
Just to be with you baby tonight is my one desire

All the times I’ve wasted baby, be my steady date
I wanna make up for lost time tonight and I just can’t wait
Put your lips to mine with your kiss of fire, woah yeah
Just to be with you baby tonight is my one desire

All the times I’ve wasted baby, be my steady date
I wanna make up for lost time tonight and I just can’t wait
Put your lips to mine with your kiss of fire, woah yeah
Just to be with you baby tonight is my one desire
Just to be with you baby tonight is my one desire
Just to be with you baby tonight is my one desire

Gypsy Road – Song Lyric Sunday – Traveling on …

Today’s SLS prompt is travel type words, such as ‘street, avenue, road, boulevard, lane, drive’. Lots of songs to choose from! Thanks, Jim!

***

This song kind of touches on the fact that touring with a band is harder than it seems. The constant traveling, to keep up with their commitments, the loneliness of being on the road, and sometimes just wanting to go home, wears a person down. But still you do it over and over for the money and the fame. Is it worth it? Maybe…maybe not.

 

“Gypsy Road”, by Cinderella, is a single from their 1987 album, “Long Cold Winter”. It was written by Tom Keifer, and is on the Mercury label.

I used to be now I’m not what you see, Lord I try
And now it seems all those dreams have come true, but they’re passing me by
Some fast talkin’ mama for a dollar put a smile on my face
I’m drivin’ all night
I end up in the same old place

My gypsy road can’t take me home
I drive all night just to see the light
My gypsy road can’t take me home
I keep on pushin’ cause it feels all right

And who’s to care if I grow my hair to the sky
I’ll take a wish and a prayer cross my fingers ’cause I always get by
Some fast talkin’ jerk for a dollar wiped the smile off my face
I’m drivin’ all night
Just to keep the rat in the race

My gypsy road can’t take me home
I drive all night just to see the light
My gypsy road can’t take me home
I keep on pushin’ cause it feels all right

Sometimes I feel so old
Got my lights burnin’ bright
But I’m lookin’ pretty sold
Sometimes I feel so cold
So cold
Let’s go

Got to get on home
My gypsy road can’t take me home
My gypsy road can’t take me home, t-t-take me

My gypsy road can’t take me home
I drive all night just to see the light
My gypsy road can’t take me home
I keep on pushin’ cause it feels all right

My gypsy road can’t take me home
I drive all night just to see the light
My gypsy road can’t take me home
I keep on p-p-pushin’

My gypsy road
My gypsy road
My gypsy road
My gypsy road

My gypsy road

My gypsy road can’t take me home
I drive all night just to see the light
My gypsy road can’t take me home
