Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 3/4/18

When I was looking for my song last week, I came upon the theme for this week.  It’s a good thing, too, because my brain is not in a very creative mood and I can’t even imagine trying to come up with that today.  I even have my song picked out, which is another bonus. (I apologize that I have a leg up, but hopefully this week will be an easy one).

Have you ever looked at the clock and it showed all ones, or all fours?  There are some people who think it actually means something, and maybe it does.  My son has a knack for noticing things like that.  I think there was a day where he showed me at least four times when the clock showed the same numbers.  It was slightly unsettling, but I realize now that it probably shouldn’t have been.

I tend to believe in things like that, even if I don’t know how it works all that well.  I just know that I consider myself lucky when I see all ones because that is supposed to be a sign of something good.

This, of course, brings us to our theme this week.  So, get your thinking caps on, break out your playlists and let’s get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “numbers”.  Find a song that features a number, or go with the word itself.  I know there are many songs out there to choose from, so let’s have some fun this week!

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!

I have to say a huge thank you to  Simply Marquessa  for teaming up with me the last few months.  I enjoyed every second of it, so thanks for reaching out to me.  She’s decided to focus on writing, which I find admirable, since my “writing” is limited right now to what I may or not post on my blog.

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.

  13. When I first read the prompt I was stumped, then I used Google and had to many options, but when I saw this song I knew I would use it. I am not a huge Lynyrd Skynyrd fan,but when I heard this song for the first time I fell in love with it. I love the way the lyrics and the music seem to fit perfectly together, and I always want to get up and dance when I hear this song, even though it’s not really a dancing song. So here is “Gimme Three Steps,” by Lynryd Skynyrd.
    Written by Allen Collins and Ronnie Van Zant- lyrics from Google

    I was cutting the rug
    Down at place called The Jug
    With a girl named Linda Lou
    When in walked a man
    With a gun in his hand
    And he was looking for you know who
    He said, “Hey there, fellow
    With the hair colored yellow
    Whatcha tryin’ to prove?
    ‘Cause that’s my woman there
    And I’m a man who cares
    And this might be all for you
    I said, excuse me
    I was scared and fearing for my life
    I was shaking like a leaf on a tree
    ‘Cause he was lean, mean
    Big and bad, Lord
    Pointin’ that gun on me
    “Oh, wait a minute, mister
    I didn’t even kiss her
    Don’t want no trouble with you
    And I know you don’t owe me
    But I wish you’d let me
    Ask one favor from you”
    “Oh, won’t you
    Gimme three steps, gimme three steps, mister
    Gimme three steps toward the door?
    Gimme three steps, gimme three steps, mister
    And you’ll never see me no more”
    For, sure
    Well the crowd cleared away
    And I began to pray
    And the water fell on the floor
    And I’m telling you, son
    Well, it ain’t no fun
    Staring straight down a forty-four
    Well, he turned and screamed at Linda Lou
    And that’s the break I was looking for
    Well, you could hear me screaming a mile away
    I was headed out toward the door
    “Oh, won’t you
    Gimme three steps, gimme three steps, mister
    Gimme three steps toward the door?
    Gimme three steps, gimme three steps, mister
    And you’ll never see me no more”
    Show me the back door
