Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 3/5/17

It’s always hard to have a month long theme because eventually it comes to an end.  At least, it’s hard for me because then I’m left wondering what the theme should be.  Thank goodness I have some amazing followers who help me with the theme sometimes; otherwise, it would be much harder.

I received an email from Karuna at Living Learning and Letting Go, asking for some help.  She wants to post a specific song and asked me to propose a theme that fits the song.  That’s usually how I come up with the themes, so it’s only fair that I allow you guys to do it sometimes.  The only problem is, I’m not sure if I’m going to get it right for her.

She gave me lots of good information, but I’m thinking there are many different ways I could go.  So, in the effort of making things easy for everyone (hopefully) and hopefully giving her what she needs, our theme for Song Lyric Sunday is to post a song about respect.

As always, you can go your own way and post a song that has nothing to do with the prompt.  We’re all here sharing our love of music and lyrics, and most of all, having a great time!

If you would like to suggest a theme, I am open to suggestions.   Please either pop it in the comments or send me an email at redesp75@yahoo.com.

Here are the “rules”:

  • Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it fits the theme or not
  • Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due and it’s honestly just a simple Google search
  • Make sure you also credit the singer/band and provide a link to where you found the lyrics
  • Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song
  • Ping back to this post or my own Song Lyric Sunday post
  • Read at least one other person’s blog so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process

    • Oh my GOD, one of my all time favorite songs!! I bought the whole CD back when it first came out, just for this song. It says so much and I hate when radio stations censor (blank out) so many of the words!. The lyrics are this song’s power. Thanks for posting this!

  7. My first thought when I heard the theme was “RESPECT,” by Aretha, but I got to thinking about a conversation at dinner the other night. My daughter starts college this fall, and her dream is to become an officer in the USAF, following in her father’s footsteps. She started talking about who would get her first salute, apparently this is a big deal, and she said it would be amazing if her great grandpa could do it. He is almost 98 and served in the Marines during WWII. This got me to thinking about how much respect I have for his generation, especially since I’ve been able to interview so many of them lately. So I found a song, and I had never heard of this band until this morning, but I think they sum up how I feel right now, and the respect I hold for the “greatest generation.” It’s strange because I can’t listen to this song for very long…but I love the lyrics, so here is All that Remains, “The Greatest Generation”

    Written by Jason Costa, Joshua Wilbur, Michael Martin, Oli Herbert, Philip Labonte from Google Play Music

    If you been wondering
    Just what has made us grow
    A generation hard as stone
    My father’s father, may God rest his soul
    He taught me something you should know

    You put your shoulder to the wheel
    You put your nose to the grindstone
    You work your fingers straight to the bone

    I won’t, won’t let ‘em leave us, a generation
    I won’t, won’t let ‘em leave us, don’t leave us
    Selfless, relentless, don’t let their memory fade away
    No, I won’t, won’t let ‘em leave us, don’t leave us

    Remember what made us great
    Now’s the time to
    Remember what made us great

    They dug and shaped the earth,
    And with their hands gave birth
    To all the modern wonders that you see
    They worked from dawn till dusk
    They did it all for us
    If we take one thing from them it should be

    You put your shoulder to the wheel
    You put your nose to the grindstone
    You work your fingers straight to the bone

    I won’t, won’t let ‘em leave us, a generation
    I won’t, won’t let ‘em leave us, don’t leave us
    Selfless, relentless, don’t let their memory fade away
    No, I won’t, won’t let ‘em leave us, don’t leave us

    I am forever grateful
    I am the man I am today
    I am forever grateful
    For your hand in making me this way (don’t leave us)

    Remember what made us great (now is the time to)
    Remember what made us great

    Remember what made us great (now is the time to)
    Remember what made us great

    I won’t, won’t let ‘em leave us, a generation
    I won’t, won’t let ‘em leave us, don’t leave us

    I won’t, won’t let ‘em leave us, a generation
    I won’t, won’t let ‘em leave us, don’t leave us
    Selfless, relentless, don’t let their memory fade away
    No, I won’t, won’t let ‘em leave us, don’t leave us

    Remember what made us great (now is the time to)
    Remember what made us great

    • I can hear why you had a hard time listening to the song. However, I really enjoyed it. I think I’ve heard of the band before, but I don’t think I’ve listened to any of their songs. I love the direction you went in. I have the utmost respect for our veterans and the current members of the military. Thanks so much for sharing this, Sissy!
