Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 5/21/17

As evidenced by the fact that I haven’t posted anything on the blog this week, it’s been a rough one.  Work is absolutely insane right now, which gives me zero time to think and unwind.  Not only that, by the time I get home, I’m exhausted.  I’ve also had some teenage drama to deal with and some lingering health things.  I’m honestly not sure how I made it to Saturday.  I guess that’s why I feel exhausted and entirely without motivation today.

But, I did manage to make it to my computer to post a theme, albeit a bit late in the day.  I can’t say a whole lot of thought went into it.  I literally scrolled through my iTunes and came up with the theme after eyeing one particular song (that you will definitely see on the blog tomorrow morning).  I hope you all have as much luck with the theme as I did.

So, our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is to post a song with the name of a person in the title or lyrics.

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

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

Feel free to use the Song Lyric Sunday badge by copying it into your post or add it to your site to show you are participating.

  1. Sorry to hear you’ve had a sucky week. If it makes you feel any better, so have I. Nonetheless the weekly SLS is always good to helping snap out of a funk so thanks for enduring and posting a prompt through your misery.

  9. So I am cheating a little bit. I couldn’t think of a song last night when Helen mentioned the theme to me, and she threw this one out, and it happens to be one of my favorite songs by the Counting Crows, so I am going to use it. Of course when I woke up this morning I thought of a ton of songs, but I am going to stick with this one. Thanks sissy!

    Sha la, la, la, la, la, la
    Uh, huh
    I was down at the New Amsterdam
    Starin’ at this yellow-haired girl
    Mr. Jones strikes up a conversation
    With a black-haired flamenco dancer
    You know, she dances while his father plays guitar
    She’s suddenly beautiful, we all want something beautiful
    Man, I wish I was beautiful
    So come dance this silence down through the mornin’
    Sha la, la, la, la, la, la, la
    Uh, huh
    Cut up, Maria
    Show me some of them Spanish dances
    Pass me a bottle, Mr. Jones
    Believe in me
    Help me believe in anything
    ‘Cause I, I wanna be someone who believes
    Mr. Jones and me tell each other fairy tales
    And we stare at the beautiful women
    She’s looking at you
    Ah, no, no, she is looking at me
    Smilin’ in the bright lights
    Comin’ through in stereo
    When everybody loves you
    You can never be lonely
    Well I’m a paint my picture
    Paint myself in blue, red, black and gray
    All of the beautiful colors are very, very meaningful
    Yeah, well you know, gray is my favorite color
    I felt so symbolic yesterday
    If I knew Picasso
    I would buy myself a gray guitar and play
    Mr. Jones and me look into the future
    Yeah, we stare at the beautiful women
    She’s looking at you I don’t think so, she’s looking at me
    Standin’ in the spotlight
    I bought myself a gray guitar
    When everybody loves me
    I will never be lonely
    I will never be lonely
    Said I’m never gonna be lonely
    I wanna be a lion
    Ah, everybody wanna pass as cats
    We all wanna be big, big stars
    Yeah, but we got different reasons for that
    Believe in me ’cause I don’t believe in anything
    And I, I wanna be someone to believe
    To believe, to believe
    Mr. Jones and me stumbling through the Barrio
    Yeah, we stare at the beautiful women
    She’s perfect for you
    Man, there’s got to be somebody for me
    I wanna be Bob Dylan
    Mr. Jones wishes he was someone just a little more funky
    When everybody love you
    Ah son, that’s just about as funky as you can be
    Mr. Jones and me starin’ at the video
    When I look at the television
    I wanna see me starin’ right back at me
    We all wanna be big stars
    But we don’t know why and we don’t know how
    But when everybody loves me
    I wanna be just about as happy as I can be
    Mr. Jones and me, we’re gonna be big stars
