Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 6/3/18

I’m so grateful to my followers.  Especially today.  I guess I overdid it and now my body is forcing me to take some down time.  I just don’t get why this whole exercise thing is so hard.  I guess if it was easy, we would all be super fit and healthy, right?  It hasn’t deterred me; it really is helping.  I’m going to get back at it.  I’m just hoping I feel better soon.

I did have help this week.  While I’m not going to use the month-long idea suggested by Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me, I am going to use one of the prompts he suggested, so thank you for your help.  And if you haven’t done it yet, go check out his blog!

So, without any more self pity from me, let’s just get right to it.  Put your thinking caps on, break out your playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week, brought to us by Jim Adams, is “smile”.  

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 helenvahdati@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

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.

  5. Ah, this just fits with an old song I rediscovered this week! Will post it later. And good luck with the exercise – I’m told it gets easier with practice, but I’ve never reached that point myself!

  12. I love this theme, and I honestly couldn’t think of a song, so I got Google out and remembered this song. I love this song, and it put a smile on my face, because I thought of my Sammy first, she was my service dog, and her life brought joy to mine, I miss her so much, but I am grateful she was a part of my life. Every time Helen writes a story about her, she perfectly captures her spirit, and I love rereading those stories…thanks for that connection sis. Have a great Sunday all, and her is Uncle Kracker’s “Smile.”

    You’re better than the best
    I’m lucky just to linger in your light
    Cooler then the flip side of my pillow, that’s right
    Completely unaware
    Nothing can compare to where you send me,
    Lets me know that it’s OK, yeah it’s OK
    And the moments where my good times start to fade
    You make me smile like the sun
    Fall out of bed, sing like a bird
    Dizzy in my head, spin like a record
    Crazy on a Sunday night
    You make me dance like a fool
    Forget how to breathe
    Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
    Just the thought of you can drive me wild
    Oh, you make me smile
    Even when you’re gone
    Somehow you come along
    Just like a flower poking through the sidewalk crack and just like that
    You steal away the rain and just like that
    You make me smile like the sun
    Fall out of bed, sing like a bird
    Dizzy in my head, spin like a record
    Crazy on a Sunday night
    You make me dance like a fool
    Forget how to breathe
    Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
    Just the thought of you can drive me wild
    Oh, you make me smile
    Don’t know how I lived without you
    Cause every time that I get around ya
    I see the best of me inside your eyes
    You make me smile
    You make me dance like a fool
    Forget how to breathe
    Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
    Just the thought of you can drive me wild
    You make me smile like the sun
    Fall out of bed, sing like a bird
    Dizzy in my head, spin like a record
    Crazy on a Sunday night
    You make me dance like a fool
    Forget how to breathe
    Shine like gold, buzz like a bee
    Just the thought of you can drive me wild
    Oh, you make me smile
    Oh, you make me smile
    Oh, you make me smile

  25. Reblogged this on Wonderwall and commented:
    The phrase ‘Don’t go chasing waterfalls TLC’ has recently been painted above our water fountain at work. I’m not sure if it is meant to be inspirational or warn us to be careful not to create a waterfall with the water and get everything wet, slippery and hazardous? Drinks can be dangerous! Just this morning an hour into my train journey there was a sudden announcement about being careful with hot drinks; as though the hour mark was when passengers after one too many coffee, started tipping it over their heads?! I was too busy crazily sewing to get a banner finished for today. Anyway here is the full lyrics where waterfalls is used metropborically for something enticing but dangerous.

    Waterfalls
    TLC
    A lonely mother gazing out of her window
    Staring at a son that she just can’t touch
    If at any time he’s in a jam she’ll be by his side
    But he doesn’t realize he hurts her so much
    But all the praying just ain’t helping at all
    ‘Cause he can’t seem to keep his self out of trouble
    So, he goes out and he makes his money the best way he know how
    Another body laying cold in the gutter
    Listen to me
    Don’t go chasing waterfalls
    Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to
    I know that you’re gonna have it your way or nothing at all
    But I think you’re moving too fast
    Little precious has a natural obsession for temptation
    But he just can’t see
    She give him loving that his body can’t handle
    But all he can say is, “Baby, it’s good to me”
    One day he goes and takes a glimpse in the mirror
    But he doesn’t recognize his own face
    His health is fading and he doesn’t know why
    Three letters took him to his final resting place
    Y’all don’t hear me
    Don’t go chasing waterfalls
    Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to
    I know that you’re gonna have it your way or nothing at all
    But I think you’re moving too fast
    I seen rainbow yesterday
    But too many storms have come and gone
    Leavin’ a trace of not on God-given ray
    Is it because my life is ten shades of gray
    I pray all ten fade away
    Seldom praise Him for the sunny days
    And like his promise is true
    Only my faith can undo
    The many chances I blew
    To bring my life to anew
    Clear blue and unconditional skies
    Have dried the tears from my eyes
    No more lonely cries
    My only bleedin’ hope
    Is for the folk who can’t cope
    Wit such an endurin’ pain
    That it keeps ’em in the pourin’ rain
    Who’s to blame
    For tootin’ caine in your own vein
    What a shame
    You shoot and aim for someone else’s brain
    You claim the insane
    And name this day in time
    For fallin prey to crime
    I say the system got you victim to your own mind
    Dreams are hopeless aspirations
    In hopes of comin’ true
    Believe in yourself
    The rest is up to me and you
    Don’t go chasing waterfalls
    Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to
    I know that you’re gonna have it your way or nothing at all
    But I think you’re moving too fast
    Don’t go chasing waterfalls
    Please stick to the rivers and the lakes that you’re used to
    I know that you’re gonna have it your way or nothing at all
    But I think you’re moving too fast
