Lips are Movin – Song Lyric Sunday – All About That Face 

https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2019/11/30/facial-beauty/

***

Today, for SLS, we were given the prompt words – chin/ears/eyes/face/mouth/nose. Lots of facial features to choose from this week. I went with ‘lips’. Thanks, Jim!

To join in this weekly musical challenge, and see/hear other great song entries, just click the above link. It’s fun! 🙂

***

When I saw all the prompt words, I was kind of overwhelmed – there are so many songs to choose from. Most I saw were about eyes and lips, not so many about noses, ears, or chins.

I couldn’t stop thinking about Rudolph, though, with his red nose! But, later on we’ll have Christmas prompts, so didn’t want to use this one.

So, I went searching and found this one. I hadn’t heard it before, but I do like a lot of her songs. It’s a really cute one, with shades of her big hit “All About That Bass”. The article said this one proved she wasn’t just a one hit wonder. She sings about a boyfriend that is probably cheating on her, but still sweet talks her, and she knows if he’s talking, he’s probably lying.

***

Some interesting facts about the video (from the Wiki article) which describes it very well –

In the song’s music video, Trainor sings into a red microphone in front of a pastel blue backdrop in a black leather jacket. She is sometimes with backup dancers, surrounded by the television screens.[49] Lips are used as a motif throughout the video; they appear as close-ups of Trainor’s mouth and as a large drawing of lips used as a backdrop. Yahoo! Music writer Lyndsey Parker compared the video to a huge pair of lips featured in The Rocky Horror Picture Show.[48] Trainor wears lip-shaped earrings and sunglasses in the video, and is seen lying on a lip-shaped sofa. Parker compared the sofa in the video to the sofas used in the American television program So You Think You Can Dance.[48] The video’s set changes constantly; props are elevated on-and-off screen by workers throughout the clip.[46]

“Lips are Movin”, by Meghan Trainor, was released from her album, “Title”, in 2014. It was written by Meghan Trainor and Kevin Kadish, and is on the Epic label.

[Intro]
If your lips are movin, If your lips are movin
If your lips are movin, then you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’, baby
If your lips are movin, If your lips are movin
If your lips are movin, I said you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’, baby

[Verse 1]
Boy, look at me in my face
Tell me that you’re not just about this bass

You really think I could be replaced
Nah, I come from outer space

And I’m a classy girl, I’mma hold it up
You’re full of something but it ain’t love

And what we got, straight overdue
Go find somebody new

[Pre-Chorus]
You can buy me diamond earrings and deny-ny-ny, ny-ny-ny, deny-ny
But I smell her on your collar so goodbye-bye-bye, bye-bye-bye

[Chorus]
I know you’re lyin’
Cause your lips are movin’

Tell me, do you think I’m dumb?
I might be young, but I ain’t stupid
Talking around in circles with your tongue

I gave you bass, you gave me sweet talk
Saying how I’m your number one

But I know you lie
Cause your lips are movin
Baby don’t you know I’m done?

[Interlude]
If your lips are movin, If your lips are movin
If your lips are movin, then you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’, baby
If your lips are movin, If your lips are movin
If your lips are movin, I said you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’, baby

[Verse 2]
Hey baby don’t you bring them tears
Cause it’s too late, too late baby

You only love me when you’re here
You’re so two-faced, two-faced babe

[Pre-Chorus]
You can buy me diamond earrings and deny-ny-ny, ny-ny-ny, deny-ny
But I smell her on your collar so goodbye-bye-bye, bye-bye-bye

[Chorus]
I know you’re lyin’
Cause your lips are movin’

Tell me, do you think I’m dumb?
I might be young, but I ain’t stupid
Talking around in circles with your tongue

I gave you bass, you gave me sweet talk
Saying how I’m your number one

But I know you lie
Cause your lips are movin
Baby don’t you know I’m done?

If your lips are movin, If your lips are movin
If your lips are movin, then you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’, baby
If your lips are movin, If your lips are movin
If your lips are movin, then you’re lyin’, lyin’, lyin’, baby

[Chorus]
I know you’re lyin’
Cause your lips are movin’

Tell me, do you think I’m dumb?
I might be young, but I ain’t stupid
Talking around in circles with your tongue

I gave you bass, you gave me sweet talk
Saying how I’m your number one

But I know you lie
Cause your lips are movin
Baby don’t you know I’m done?

I found this song, which I’ve heard a lot of times. I like it a lot, even though it sounds like most other old time country songs. This one though is telling a story that is set probably in Louisiana in the Bayou region.

It mentions all kinds of good Cajun food that they will enjoy with friends, while listening to some good music.

I, for one, love to eat this type of food. We have a Cajun themed restaurant here that we go to often.

We, in our family, have had the traditional turkey and dressing and side dishes many times over the years, and it’s good. But, lots of times we have non-traditional food for our holidays. I like that even better.

***

From the Wiki article:

“Jambalaya”, while maintaining a Cajun theme, is about life, parties and stereotypical food of Cajun cuisine. The narrator leaves to pole a pirogue down the shallow water of the bayou, to attend a party with his girlfriend Yvonne and her family. At the feast they have Cajun cuisine, notably Jambalaya, crawfish pie and filé gumbo, and drink liquor from fruit jars. Yvonne is his “ma cher amio”, which is Cajun French for “my good friend” or more likely to mean “my girlfriend.” Technically in Cajun culture “ma cher amio” means my dear, which refers to Yvonne in this song. It reached number one on the U.S. country charts for fourteen non-consecutive weeks

***

“Jambalaya (On the Bayou)”, by Hank Williams, was released in 1952. It was written by Hank Williams and Moon Mullican, and is on the MGM label.

***

***

[Verse 1]
Goodbye Joe me gotta go me oh my oh
Me gotta go pole the pirogue down the bayou
My Yvonne the sweetest one me oh my oh

Son of me gun we’ll have big fun on the bayou
Jambalaya and a crawfish pie on a filé gumbo

‘Cause tonight I’m gonna see my ma cher amio
Pick guitar, filled fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of me gun we’ll have big fun on the bayou

[Verse 2]
Thibodaux Fontaineaux the place is buzzin’
Kinfolk come to see Yvonne by the dozen
Dressed in style, go hog wild, oh me oh my oh
Son of me gun we’ll have big fun on the bayou

Settle down far from town get me a pirogue
And I’ll catch all the fish in the bayou

[Chorus]
Jambalaya and a crawfish pie on a filé gumbo
‘Cause tonight I’m gonna see my ma cher amio
Pick guitar, filled fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of me gun we’ll have big fun on the bayou

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie on a filé gumbo
‘Cause tonight I’m gonna see my ma cher amio
Pick guitar, filled fruit jar and be gay-o
Son of me gun we’ll have big fun on the bayou

Son of me gun we’ll have big fun on the bayou

[Verse 3]
Later on, swap my mon, get me a pirogue
And I’ll catch all the fish on the bayou

Swap my mon, to buy Yvonne what she need-oh
Son of a gun we’ll have big fun on the bayou

Jambalaya and a crawfish pie…

Today, for SLS, we have the words ‘did/didn’t/do/don’t/does/doesn’t’. Lots of songs with some version of these to choose from. Thanks, Jim!

To join in this fun weekly musical challenge, the details are found at the above link. See other entries, also. 🙂

***

From the Wiki article:

“‘I Want You To Want Me’ was a fabulous dancehall type of song, and a perfect pop tune, and it was meant to be a little campy.

The studio version features guitar by Jay Graydon.[8] The live version has a higher tempo than the album version, which contributed to its success. However, the album version features an echo at the verse “Didn’t I, didn’t I, didn’t I see you cryin’ (cryin)”. This echo does not appear in the live version. The crowd, however, emulates the echo by chanting “cryin'”.

***

In this video, where Cheap Trick is performing live on the Howard Stern show, there is a one minute interview about how the song came to be.

“I Want You to Want Me’, by Cheap Trick, appears on their 1977 album, “In Color”. It was written by Rick Nielson, and is on the Epic label.

I read the whole Wiki article about how this song came about, and it’s pretty interesting. You can find it … here

But, here are a few tidbits:

  • …They began writing the song on {a} tour bus, and continued later that night at their hotel
  • …unusually for a love song, the lyrics are not about the narrator’s love for someone else; instead the narrator functions as a helpful go-between for estranged lovers
  • The “yeah, yeah, yeah” refrain proved an immediate, infectious musical hook.
  • In November 2004, Rolling Stone ranked “She Loves You” number 64 on their list of the 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

***

“She Loves You”, by the Beatles, was released as a single in 1963. It was written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney, and is on the Capitol – Swan, and Parlophone labels.

***

***

[Chorus: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

[Verse 1: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
You think you’ve lost your love
Well, I saw her yesterday
It’s you she’s thinking of
And she told me what to say

[Refrain: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
She says she loves you
And you know that can’t be bad
Yes, she loves you
And you know you should be glad

[Verse 2: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
She said you hurt her so
She almost lost her mind
But now she said she knows
You’re not the hurting kind

[Refrain: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
She says she loves you
And you know that can’t be bad
Yes, she loves you
And you know you should be glad, ooh

She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah
With a love like that
You know you should be glad

[Verse 3: Paul McCartney & John Lennon]
You know it’s up to you
I think it’s only fair
Pride can hurt you, too
Apologise to her

Because she loves you
And you know that can’t be bad
She loves you

Creedence Clearwater Revival has had a lot of great songs over the years, and I’ve always liked them.

I found this video, which isn’t of the greatest quality, but the song sounds good, and the images are really fun to see. It shows snippets of a lot of different bands of the era, which brings back memories of enjoying the music of the past years.

***

Here’s something funny, at least for me.

You’ve heard of Mondegreen, right?

mon·de·green
/ˈmändəɡrēn/
 
noun
  1. a misunderstood or misinterpreted word or phrase resulting from a mishearing of the lyrics of a song.

Interesting facts from the Wiki article:

The song is frequently used by Pete Buttigieg at events in his campaign for the 2020 presidential election;

It was certified gold by the RIAA for sales of over one million copies. It was also a major hit in the UK, where it reached number three on the UK Singles Chart.

The song opens with a prominent, high-pitched guitar riff played by John Fogerty. The song’s lyrics have Fogerty telling of a gathering “up around the bend” on the highway and inviting the listener to join in.

***

“Up Around the Bend”, by Creedence Clearwater Revival, can be found on their album, “Cosmo’s Factory”. It was released in 1970, and is on the Fantasy Records label. It was written by John Fogerty.

[Verse 1]
There’s a place up ahead and I’m going
Just as fast as my feet can fly
Come away, come away if you’re going
Leave the sinkin’ ship behind

We’re going up around the bend
Ooooh!

[Verse 2]
Bring a song and a smile for the banjo
Better get while the getting’s good
Hitch a ride to the end of the highway
Where the neons turn to wood

[Chorus]
Come on the rising wind
We’re going up around the bend
Ooooh!

[Verse 3]
You can ponder perpetual motion
Fix your mind on a crystal day
Always time for good conversation
There’s an ear for what you say

[Chorus]
Come on the rising wind
We’re going up around the bend
Yeeaahhh!

[Guitar solo]
Ooooh!

[Verse 4]
Catch a ride to the end of the highway
And we’ll meet by the big red tree
There’s a place up ahead and I’m going
Come along, come along with me

Come on the rising wind
We’re going up around the bend
Yeeaahhh!

This song is one of my all time favorites.

I also post this song at the very end of my fan fiction story, “Two Souls: Into the Fire”. I think it sums up the relationship between Steve and Ghost – that they found each other, and are no longer Lost Souls. Their love is for a lifetime.

***

From the Wiki article:

Love of a Lifetime” is a song performed by the American rock band FireHouse. It was the band’s third single and its highest charting single in the United States, peaking at No. 5 on the Billboard Hot 100 in September 1991. It is also the band’s first and most popular power ballad. The song was written by vocalist C.J. Snare and guitarist Bill Leverty.[1]

The song is arguably what FireHouse is most known for. In a 2005 interview, Snare commented “now I have the benefit of time to look back over this and there isn’t a show that goes by where people don’t come up to us and are like “‘Love of a Lifetime’ – we got married to that song!”[2]

“Love of a Lifetime”, by Firehouse, is on the album, “Firehouse”, and was released in 1991, on the Epic label. It was written by Bill Leverty & C. J. Snare.

I guess the time was right for us to say
We’d take our time and live our lives
Together day by day
We’ll make a wish and send it on a prayer
We know our dreams can all come true
With love that we can share
With you I never wonder – will you be there for me?
With you I never wonder – you’re the right one for me?

[Chorus]
I finally found the love of a lifetime
A love to last my whole life through
I finally found the love of a lifetime
Forever in my heart
I finally found the love of a lifetime

With every kiss, our love is like brand new
And every star up in the sky
Was made for me and you
Still we both know that the road is long
We know that we will be together
Because our love is strong

[Chorus]

This way back old classic country song has always been a favorite, as I’ve heard it many times over the years. My mom & dad loved it, and so does my husband. I hadn’t heard it in a long time, but isn’t it funny how song lyrics and tunes come back to you. I could almost sing the whole song.

Anyway, in reading about this song, I found that it got banned by lots of radio stations. That’s because it was a drinking song. It tells the story of someone lamenting over a lost love relationship, and drinking to ease the painful memories.

But, after studying his fan base, Webb Pierce figured most of them liked to drink, so went ahead and promoted it. He was right. It became a big hit.

This song has been recorded by many other artists over the years. I’ve included one that George Strait did. Still, I prefer the original.

“There Stands the Glass”, by Webb Pierce, was released in 1953. It was written by Russ Hull, Mary Jean Shurtz, and Autry Greisham, and is on the Decca label.

There stands the glass that will ease all my pain
That will settle my brain it's my first one today
There stands the glass that will hide all my tears
That will drown all my fear, brother I'm on my way

I'm wondering if you are all right
I wonder if you think of me in my misery

There stands the glass fill it up to the brim
Til my troubles grow dim, it's my first one today

***

You know, sometimes we have friends or lovers that we enjoy for awhile, yet the relationship waxes and wanes, and we drift apart for some reason. You may get back together in another time or place, but you always have the memories of what was, and what could have been.

This song I found was a new one for me, but I really like it. I’ve always enjoyed Joan Baez’s and Bob Dylan’s songs. This one has the word ‘vagabond in the lyrics.

From the Wiki article:

In the song, Baez recounts an out-of-the-blue phone call from an old lover, which sends her a decade back in time, to a “crummy” hotel in Greenwich Village in about 1964 or 1965; she recalls giving him a pair of cufflinks, and summarizes that memories bring “diamonds and rust”. Baez has stated that the lyrics refer to her relationship with Bob Dylan.[1]

***

“Diamonds & Rust”, by Joan Baez, is on her studio album, and released in 1975. It was written by her, and is on the A & M label.

***

***

Well I’ll be damned
Here comes your ghost again
But that’s not unusual
It’s just that the moon is full
And you happened to call
And here I sit
Hand on the telephone
Hearing a voice I’d known
A couple of light years ago
Heading straight for a fall

As I remember your eyes
Were bluer than robin’s eggs
My poetry was lousy you said
Where are you calling from?
A booth in the midwest

Ten years ago
I bought you some cufflinks
You brought me something
We both know what memories can bring
They bring diamonds and rust

Well you burst on the scene
Already a legend
The unwashed phenomenon
The original vagabond
You strayed into my arms
And there you stayed
Temporarily lost at sea
The Madonna was yours for free
Yes the girl on the half-shell
Would keep you unharmed

With brown leaves falling around
And snow in your hair
Now you’re smiling out the window
Of that crummy hotel
Over Washington Square

Our breath comes out white clouds
Mingles and hangs in the air
Speaking strictly for me
We both could have died then and there

Now you’re telling me
You’re not nostalgic
Then give me another word for it
You who are so good with words
And at keeping things vague

Because I need some of that vagueness now
It’s all come back too clearly
Yes I loved you dearly
And if you’re offering me diamonds and rust
I’ve already paid

Today for SLS, Jim Adams, of A Unique Title For Me, has given us the prompt word – Trains. Thanks, Jim!

To join in this fun musical challenge, you can find details at the above link.

***

There are lots of songs about trains, and all are good. I picked this one that I’ve heard a few times, because I love the heavy beat, and because of the background of the band.

From reading about them, it seems most band members have a Native American connection in their ancestry. The name of their band, “Blackfoot”, was chosen to honor this.

I, myself, have a Native American connection to the Blackfoot tribe, as my great-grandmother was full blood Blackfoot. Her name is Fatoma, and she is buried in our local cemetery.

***

From the Wiki article:

“Train, Train” was covered by country music legend Dolly Parton on her 1999 album The Grass Is Blue which won the 2001 Grammy Award for Best Bluegrass Album. Warrant covered the song on their 1990 album Cherry Pie. The song has appeared in the 2011 film Straw Dogs.

***

“Train Train”, by Blackfoot, is on their studio album, “Strikes”, released in 1979. It was written by Shorty Medlocke, and is on the Atco label. The song “Train, Train“, written by Rickey’s grandfather, “Shorty” Medlocke, became their first success and best known song.

Oh, here it comes

Well, train, train, take me on out of this town
Train, train, Lord, take me on out of this town
Well, that woman I’m in love with, Lord, she’s Memphis bound

Old song or newer song, that was the question for me. There were so many I could think of.

I went with this one, because I like it a lot, and the fun of shopping at a thrift shop is something I do all the time. So I can relate to the song and the video.

caution: there are some bad words

I read that the video was filmed in several thrift shops in the Seattle area.

The song illustrates Macklemore’s interest in buying cheap clothing from thrift shops, disdaining designer labels and trends. (from the Wiki article)

What what, what, what
Bada, bada, bada doo da
Bada, bada, bada doo da
Bada, bada, bada doo da
Bada, bada, bada doo da
Bada, bada, bada doo da

[Chorus: Wanz]
I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got 20 dollars in my pocket

I’m, I’m, I’m huntin’
Lookin’ for a come up
This is fucking awesome

[Verse 1: Macklemore]
Now, walk into the club like, “What up, I got a big cock!”
Nah, I’m just pumped, I bought some shit from a thrift shop
Ice on the fringe is so damn frosty
The people like, “Damn, that’s a cold ass honkey!”
Rollin’ in hella deep, headed to the mezzanine
Dressed in all pink; except my gator shoes, those are green
Draped in a leopard mink, girl standin’ next to me
Probably should’ve washed this, smells like R. Kelly sheets
(Pissssss…) But shit, it was 99 cents!
Fuck it, coppin’ it, washin’ it

‘Bout to go and get some compliments
Passin’ up on those moccasins
Someone else has been walkin’ in
Bummy and grungy, fuck it, man
I am stunting and flossin’ and saving my money
And I’m hella happy; that’s a bargain, bitch!
I’ma take your grandpa’s style, I’ma take your grandpa’s style
No, for real, ask your grandpa
Can I have his hand-me-downs? (Thank you!)
Velour jumpsuit and some house slippers
Dookie brown leather jacket that I found diggin’
They had a broken keyboard, I bought a broken keyboard
I bought a skeet blanket, then I bought a knee board
Hello, hello, my ace man, my mellow
John Wayne ain’t got nothing on my fringe game, hell no
I could take some Pro Wings, make ’em cool, sell those
The sneaker heads would be like, “Ah, he got the Velcros.”

I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got 20 dollars in my pocket

I’m, I’m, I’m huntin’
Lookin’ for a come up
This is fucking awesome

I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got 20 dollars in my pocket

I’m, I’m, I’m huntin’
Lookin’ for a come up
This is fucking awesome

[Verse 2: Macklemore]
What you know about rockin’ a wolf on your noggin?
What you knowin’ about wearin’ a fur fox skin?
I’m diggin’, I’m diggin’
I’m searchin’ right through that luggage
One man’s trash, that’s another man’s come up
Thank your granddad for donatin’ that plaid button-
up shirt ’cause right now, I’m up in hurr stuntin’
I’m at the Goodwill, you can find me in the bins
I’m not, I’m not stuck on searchin’ in that section (Mens)
Your grammy, your auntie, your mama, your mammy
I’ll take those flannel zebra jammies
Second hand and I’ll rock that, motherfucker
The built-in onesie with the socks on the motherfucker
I hit the party and they stop in that motherfucker
They be like, “Oh, that Gucci? That’s hella tight”
I’m like, “Yo, that’s 50 dollars for a t-shirt.”
Limited edition, let’s do some simple addition
50 dollars for a t-shirt, that’s just some ignorant bitch shit
I call that getting-swindled-and-pimped shit
I call that getting tricked by business
That shirt’s hella dough

And having the same one as six other people in this club is a hella don’t
Peep game, come take a look through my telescope
Tryna get girls from a brand?
Man, you hella won’t! Man, you hella won’t!

Goodwill, poppin’ tags, yeah!

[Chorus: Wanz]
I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got 20 dollars in my pocket

I’m, I’m, I’m huntin’
Lookin’ for a come up
This is fucking awesome

[Bridge: Wanz]
I’ll wear your granddad’s clothes
I look incredible
I’m in this big-ass coat
From that thrift shop down the road
I’ll wear your granddad’s clothes (damn right)
I look incredible (now come on, man)
I’m in this big-ass coat (big-ass coat)
From that thrift shop down the road (let’s go, come on!)

[Chorus: Wanz]
I’m gonna pop some tags
Only got 20 dollars in my pocket

I’m, I’m, I’m huntin’
Lookin’ for a come up
This is fucking awesome

“Is that your grandma’s coat?”

Hey, hobo man, hey, Dapper Dan
You've both got your style
But brother you're never fully dressed
Without a smile

Your clothes may be beau brummelly
They stand out a mile
But brother you're never fully dressed
Without a smile

Who cares what they're wearing
On main street or Seville row
It's what you wear from ear to ear
And not from head to toe that matters

Hey, hobo man, hey, Dapper Dan
You've both got your style
But brother you're never fully dressed
Without a smile

Your clothes may be beau brummelly
They stand out a mile
But brother you're never fully dressed
Without a smile

Who cares what they're wearing
On main street or Seville row
It's what you wear from ear to ear
And not from head to toe that matters
The lovely Boylan sisters

So, Senator, so, Janitor
So long for a while
Remember you're never fully dressed
Without a smile
You're never fully dressed
Without a smile

Who cares what they're wearing
On main street or Seville row
It's what you wear from ear to ear
And not from head to toe that matters

So, Senator, so, Janitor
So long for a while
Remember you're never fully dressed
Though you may wear the best
You're never fully dressed without a

Smile, you're never fully dressed
You're never fully dressed
You're never fully dressed
You're never fully dressed without a
