We’ll Sing in the Sunshine – Song Lyric Sunday – Stay IMG_1345

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 4/15/18

***

For SLS today, Helen has asked us to consider songs with the word “Stay”. Thanks, Helen!

***

At first I couldn’t think of any songs using the word ‘stay’ in the title or in the lyrics. I got to looking around on here, and finally found a few. That said, I didn’t go with any of them. The more I kept thinking, I did remember an old song that I’ve always liked. This one below. Then I kept thinking of more, and even heard one I hadn’t seen mentioned, on the radio. Now, I had too many!

Anyway, hope you enjoy this one. 🙂

***

“We’ll Sing in the Sunshine”, by Gale Garnett, was released in 1964, from her album, “My Kind of Folk Songs”. It was written by Gale Garnett, and is on the RCA Victor label.

We’ll sing in the sunshine
We’ll laugh every day
We’ll sing in the sunshine
Then I’ll be on my way

I will never love you
The cost of love’s too dear
But though I’ll never love you
I’ll stay with you one year

And we can sing in the sunshine
We’ll laugh everyday
We’ll sing in the sunshine
Then I’ll be on my way

I’ll sing to you each morning
I’ll kiss you every night
But darlin’ don’t cling to me
I’ll soon be out of sight

But we can sing in the sunshine
We’ll laugh everyday
We’ll sing in the sunshine
Then I’ll be on my way

My daddy he once told me
“Hey, don’t you love you any man
Just take what they may give you
And give but what you can.”

You’ll laugh everyday
You’ll sing in the sunshine
Then be on your wayAnd when a year has ended
And I have gone away
You’ll often speak about me
And this is what you’ll say:We sang in the sunshine
You know we laughed everyday
We sang in the sunshine
Then she went on her way

“Return to Sender”, by Elvis Presley, was released as a single from the album, “Girls, Girls, Girls”, in 1962. It was written by Winfield Scott, and Otis Blackwell, and is on the RCA Victor label.

[Intro: Elvis Presley]
Return to sender!
Return to sender!

[Verse 1: Elvis Presley]
I gave a letter to the postman
He put it in his sack
Bright in early next morning
He brought my letter back

[Verse 2: Elvis Presley]
She wrote upon it
Return to sender, address unknown
No such number, no such zone
We had a quarrel, a lover’s spat
I write I’m sorry but my letter keeps coming back

[Verse 3: Elvis Presley]
So then I dropped it in the mailbox
And sent it special D

Bright in early next morning
It came right back to me

[Bridge: Elvis Presley]
She wrote upon it
Return to sender, address unknown
No such person, no such zone

This time I’m gonna take it myself
And put it right in her hand
And if it comes back the very next day
Then I’ll understand the writing on it

[Outro: Elvis Presley]
Return to sender, address unknown
No such number, no such zone
Return to sender
Return to sender
Return to sender
Return to sender

Now, here’s another one. I actually chose this one first, but then found someone else had already picked this one. Oh well, I figure we all have lots of different readers on our blogs, so I’m including this one, too.

***

“P. S. I Love You”, by the Beatles, was released as the B side of the single, “Love Me Do”, in 1962 (UK), and 1964 (US). It was credited to the John Lennon/Paul McCartney team, as the writers, but I read that it was mostly the creation from Paul McCartney. It is on the Parlophone, and Tollie 9008 labels.

This song I found is a cover of the Beatles song. I found that most all of the Beatles song videos have been removed from Youtube.

I don’t know who did this cover, but it’s very good, in my opinion, and the photos included are nice for remembering. It also fits the prompt of writing letters.

Hope you enjoy going down memory lane with this one!

*[Chorus 1]
As I write this letter
Send my love to you

Remember that I’ll always
Be in love with you

[Chorus 2]
Treasure these few words till we’re together
Keep all my love forever
P.S. I love you
You, you, you

[Chorus 3]
I’ll be coming home again to you, love
And till the day I do, love
P.S. I love you
You, you, you

[Chorus 1]
As I write this letter
Send my love to you
Remember that I’ll always
Be in love with you

[Chorus 2]
Treasure these few words till we’re together
Keep all my love forever
P.S. I love you
You, you, you

As I write this letter
Send my love to you

Remember that I’ll always
Be in love with you

[Chorus 3]
I’ll be coming home again to you, love
And till the day I do, love
P.S. I love you
You, you, you

Today Helen has asked us to find songs with the subject of natural disasters. Thanks, Helen!

Quite a few songs came to mind when I read the prompt, but I went with this one. It kind of gives me the chills, as I know exactly how it feels to be in a tornado, as I was in one in 1970.

It’s Only Make Believe – Song Lyric Sunday – Pretending

Standard

It’s Only Make Believe  – Song Lyric Sunday – Pretending 

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 12/17/17

Today for SLS, Helen has asked for songs about pretending. Thanks, Helen!

I’m thinking to pretend something and to make believe something is going to happen, is about the same thing. Little kids play at pretending they are someone else, like a super hero, or just about anyone or anything, all the time. They live in a world of make believe a lot of the time.

Grown ups, too, sometimes pretend things are all right, even when they know it’s just wishful thinking, and make believe.

This song seems to show how a relationship seems fine on the outside, and to other people, when actually they are just pretending to get along.

***

“It’s Only Make Believe”, by Conway Twitty, was released as a single in 1958, from his album, “Sings”. It was written by Jack Nance and Conway Twitty, and is on the MGM label.

[Bridge]
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in

Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in

[Verse 1]
Tied to a wheel, our fingers got to feel
Bleeding through a tourniquet smile
I spin on a whim, I slide to the right
I felt you like electric light
For our love, for our fear
For our rise against the years and years and years

[Chorus]
Got a machinehead, it’s better than the rest
Green to red, machinehead
Got a machinehead, it’s better than the rest
Green to red

I walk from my machine
I walk from my machine

[Bridge]
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in

[Verse 2]
Deaf, dumb, dirty
Starting to deserve this
Leaning on my conscience wall
Blood is like wine, unconscious all the time
If I had it all again I’d change it all[Chorus]
Got a machinehead, it’s better than the rest
Green to red, machinehead
Got a machinehead, it’s better than the rest
Green to redI walk from my machine
I walk from my machine
[Bridge]
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe out
Breathe in, breathe in, breathe in[Outro]
Got a machinehead, it’s better than the rest
Green to red, machinehead
Got a machinehead, it’s better than the rest
Green to red
Better than the rest, better than the rest
Machinehead
I walk from my machine
I walk from my machine

***

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

LIES/LYING -for SONG LYRIC SUNDAY

LIES/LYING – for SONG LYRIC SUNDAY

Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 8/6/17

***

The theme for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday is lies/lying.

Thanks, Helen, for another interesting prompt! 🙂

***

This first song, “Lying Eyes”, is by one of my favorite bands, The Eagles. I like all their songs, and this one fit right in with the challenge prompt.

The second song, by Three Dog Night, is about lying, too. It’s called, “Liar”. We saw Three Dog Night in concert a long time ago, in Oklahoma City. It was a great performance. Here’s my actual 45 record of the song.

“Lyin’ Eyes”, by the Eagles, was released in 1975, from the album, “One of These Nights”. It was written by Don Henley and Glenn Frey. It’s on the Asylum label.

***

***

City girls just seem to find out early
How to open doors with just a smile
A rich old man
And she won’t have to worry
She’ll dress up all in lace and go in style

Late at night a big old house gets lonely
I guess every form of refuge has its price
And it breaks her heart to think her love is only
Given to a man with hands as cold as ice

So she tells him she must go out for the evening
To comfort an old friend who’s feelin’ down
But he knows where she’s goin’ as she’s leavin’
She is headed for the cheatin’ side of town

You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes
And your smile is a thin disguise
I thought by now you’d realize
There ain’t no way to hide your lyin eyes

On the other side of town a boy is waiting
With fiery eyes and dreams no one could steal
She drives on through the night anticipating
‘Cause he makes her feel the way she used to feel

She rushes to his arms; they fall together
She whispers that it’s only for awhile
She swears that soon she’ll be comin’ back forever
She pulls away and leaves him with a smile

You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes
And your smile is a thin disguise
I thought by now you’d realize
There ain’t now way to hide your lyin’ eyes

And stares out at the stars up in the sky.
Another night, it’s gonna be a long one.
She draws the shade and hangs her head to cry.

She wonders how it ever got this crazy.
She thinks about a boy she knew in school.
Did she get tired or did she just get lazy?
She’s so far gone she feels just like a fool.

My oh my, you sure know how to arrange things.
You set it up so well, so carefully.
Ain’t it funny how your new life didn’t change things?
You’re still the same old girl you used to be.

You can’t hide your lyin’ eyes
And your smile is a thin disguise
I thought by now you’d realize
There ain’t no way to hide your lyin’ eyes
There ain’t no way to hide your lyin’ eyes
Honey, you can’t hide your lyin’ eyes

***
“Liar”, by Three Dog Night, was released from the album, “Naturally”, in 1971, on the Dunhill label. It was written by Russ Ballard.
***
***

I won’t ever leave while you want me to stay
Nothing you could do that would turn me away
Hanging on every word
Believing the things I heard
Being a fool
You’ve taken my life, so take my soul
That’s what you said and I believed it all
I want to be with you as long
As you want me to
I won’t move away
Ain’t that what you said?
Ain’t that what you said?
Ain’t that what you said?
Liar, liar, liar

May I see no light
May I see no day
If I ever leave while you want me to stay
You can believe in me
I won’t be leaving
I won’t let you go
Ain’t that what you said?
Ain’t that what you said?
Ain’t that what you said?
Liar, liar, liar

Today’s Song Lyric Sunday, Helen has asked us to find songs with color! This was easy, right? Wrong…there are so many songs with color in the titles and lyrics, it’s mind-boggling. Within a few minutes I’d thought of and wrote down around 30, without even looking for any! Now, I had to choose one, or two, like I do, and I liked all of them. Anyway, here’s my picks for today. Enjoy!

Blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

He said he wanted to settle down
And let me be his girl
But first he had to do a little travelin’ around
And see the whole wide world

That’s why I’m blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

I got a letter yesterday from Tokyo
And a souvenir
A walky-talky wind-up little China doll
That says, “Wish you were here”

Blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

He’s comin’ home to see me on a weekend pass
A forty-eight hour day-ate
That boat he’s sailin’ on just better get here fast
‘Cause I can hardly wait

Till then I’m blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

Blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

He said he wanted to settle down
And let me be his girl
But first he had to do a little travelin’ around
And see the whole wide world

That’s why I’m blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

I got a letter yesterday from Tokyo
And a souvenir
A walky-talky wind-up little China doll
That says, “Wish you were here”

Blue, navy blue
I’m as blue as I can be
‘Cause my steady boy said, “Ship ahoy”
And joined the Navy

He’s comin’ home to see me on a weekend pass
A forty-eight hour day-ate
That boat he’s sailin’ on just better get here fast
‘Cause I can hardly wait

Till then I’m blue, navy blue

Drop your silver in my tambourine
Help a poor man fill his pretty dream
Give me pennies I’ll take anything
Now listen while I play
My green tambourine

Watch the jingle jangle start to chime
Reflections of the music that is mine
When you drop a coin you’ll hear it sing
Now listen while I play
My green tambourine

Drop a dime before I walk away
Any song you want I’ll gladly play
Money feeds my music machine
Now listen while I play
My green tambourine

“Friendship”, by Cole Porter, was a highlight song, featured in the 1939 Broadway musical, “Du Barry Was a Lady”.  Music and lyrics are by Cole Porter. The musical was later made into a Technicolor film, in 1943.

This clip is from the “I Love Lucy” television show, where Lucy and Ethel are performing the song. Do you remember this episode? It seems that both ladies wore the same dress to a performance, and were very annoyed with each other, so they started ripping pieces off each other’s dresses. 🙂

Lyrics to Friendship

If you’re ever in a jam, here I am.
If you’re ever in a mess, S.O.S.
If you’re so happy, you land in jail. I’m your bail.

It’s friendship, friendship, just a perfect blendship.
When other friendships are soon forgot, ours will still be hot.
Da da da da da da dig dig dig.
If you’re ever down a well, ring my bell.
If you’re ever up a tree, just phone to me.
If you ever loose your teeth when you’re out to dine, borrow mine.
It’s friendship, friendship, just a perfect blendship.
When other friendships are soon forgeet, ours will still be great.
Loddle doddle chuck chuck chaa.
If they ever black you’re eyes, put me wise.
If they ever cook your goose, turn me loose.
And if they ever put a bullet through your brain, Ill complain.
It’s friendship, friendship, just a perfect blendship.
When other friendships are soon forgit, ours will still be it.
Ah loddle doddle hip hap hap.
If you ever loose your mind, I’ll be kind.
And if you ever loose your shirt, I’ll be hurt.
If you’re ever in a mill and get sawed in half, I won’t laugh.
It’s friendship, friendship, just a perfect blendship.
When other friendships are are up the crick, ours will still be slick.
Ah loddle doddle woof woof woof, hep hep hep, chopp chop chop, dig dig dig.
Good evening friends.
