~ Song A Day Challenge Day 5 ~

I’ve been tagged by sweet Rob over at For friends without borders to play a musical game.  It’s a “Song a Day” challenge.  Thanks, Rob, I’m happy to play.  Here is Day Five.

(copied from Rob’s blog):
The rules are to post the lyrics of a favorite song five days in a row, explain what they mean to you (if you like) and add the video if available. I’m supposed to nominate two other bloggers but they should not feel obligated to do this. I know we’re all busy. Today I nominate:

Anyone who would like to participate!!

This song always touches my heart and I hope it puts a smile on your face.  Wishing everyone Happiness, Joy and Love…Oh What a Wonderful World!!  Now stop what your doing, sit back and enjoy.  xo

WHAT A WONDERFUL WORLD
By Louis Armstrong
YouTube video by TheCatLadyJ

I see trees of green, red roses too
I see them bloom for me and you
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

I see skies of blue and clouds of white
The bright blessed day, the dark sacred night
And I think to myself what a wonderful world

The colors of the rainbow so pretty in the sky
Are also on the faces of people going by
I see friends shaking hands saying how do you do
They’re really saying I love you

I hear babies crying, I watch them grow
They’ll learn much more than I’ll never know
And I think to myself what a wonderful world
Yes I think to myself what a wonderful world

This song reminds me of my brother.  When we were kids, he had a drum set and he used to play the drum solo from this song all the time!  He was really good!!
(The drum solo starts at 6:23 in)

I’M CERTAINLY COVERING ALL REALMS OF MUSIC
In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida
IRON BUTTERFLY
In a gadda da vida, honey
Don’t you know that I’m lovin’ you
In a gadda da vida, baby
Don’t you know that I’ll always be true

Oh, won’t you come with me
And take my hand
Oh, won’t you come with me
And walk this land
Please take my hand

In a gadda da vida, honey
Don’t you know that I’m lovin’ you
In a gadda da vida, baby
Don’t you know that I’ll always be true

Oh, won’t you come with me
And take my hand
Oh, won’t you come with me
And walk this land
Please take my hand

Prabhat over at Dancing with Mosquitoes

Gretch of Everything and nothing. GM1123

This song reminds me of my sister.  We used to goof around and sing this, it was such fun!!

SISTERS, SISTERS
Rosemary Clooney, Vera-Ellen

Sisters, sisters
There were never such devoted sisters
Never had to have a chaperon, no sir
I’m here to keep my eye on her
Caring, sharing
Every little thing that we are wearing
When a certain gentleman arrives from Rome
She wore the dress and I stayed home
All kinds of weather
We stick together
The same in the rain or sun
Two different faces
But in tight places
We think and we act as one… uh-huh
Those who’ve seen us
Know that not a thing could come between us
Many men have tried to split us up but no one can
Lord help the mister
Who comes between me and my sister
And lord help the sister who comes between me and my man

Okay, Day Two and in keeping with the theme I’ve got going on here, I chose my next song because I’m HAPPY!!

(I clapped along, did you?)

HAPPY, BY PHARRELL WILLIAMS

It might seem crazy what I am about to say
Sunshine she’s here, you can take a break
I’m a hot air balloon that could go to space
With the air, like I don’t care, baby, by the way

(Because I’m happy)
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
(Because I’m happy)
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
(Because I’m happy)
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
(Because I’m happy)
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do

Here come bad news, talking this and that (Yeah!)
Well, give me all you got, don’t hold it back (Yeah!)
Well, I should probably warn ya, I’ll be just fine (Yeah!)
No offense to you, don’t waste your time
Here’s why…

(Because I’m happy)
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
(Because I’m happy)
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
(Because I’m happy)
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
(Because I’m happy)
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do

(Happy)
Bring me down… can’t nothing…
(Happy)
Bring me down… my love is too high…
(Happy)
Bring me down… can’t nothing
(Happy)
Bring me down, I said

(Happy, happy, happy, happy)
Bring me down…can’t nothing…
(Happy, happy, happy, happy)
Bring me down… my love is too high…
(Happy, happy, happy, happy)
Bring me down… can’t nothing…
(Happy, happy, happy, happy)
Bring me down, I said

(Because I’m happy)
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
(Because I’m happy)
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
(Because I’m happy)
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
(Because I’m happy)
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do
[x2]

(Happy, happy, happy, happy)
Bring me down… can’t nothing…
(Happy, happy, happy, happy)
Bring me down… my love is too high…
(Happy, happy, happy, happy)
Bring me down… can’t nothing…
(Happy, happy, happy, happy)
Bring me down, I said

(Because I’m happy)
Clap along if you feel like a room without a roof
(Because I’m happy)
Clap along if you feel like happiness is the truth
(Because I’m happy)
Clap along if you know what happiness is to you
(Because I’m happy)
Clap along if you feel like that’s what you wanna do
[x2]

Come on!

Tis the Night Before Christmas…

Tis the night before Christmas
I sit here and wait
Thanking God for my blessings
And praise Him so great

His mercy is plenty
He fills me with grace
His love is unending
I feel His embrace

tis-the-night-before-christmas

I ask for His guidance
To love as He does
And offer my service
To be as He was

I’m ever so grateful
To share every day
And say that I’m thankful
For what comes my way.

May You Be Blessed With The Spirit of Christmas!
