Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 10/7/18

I’m not one to normally point such things out, but since I typed that date up there, I just have to share. I’ve been doing this for two years now (has it really been that long?) and this is the first time SLS has landed on my birthday! You’d think I would be doing a theme based on that, but I stopped doing that a while ago (trying to come up with themes based on holidays or what’s going on the world).

Besides, I started a three week theme last week and didn’t really mention it. If you can figure it out after today and guess what next week’s theme will be, I will send you a virtual cookie!

I don’t have much else today, other than trying to stay warm (hello snow!), so we’re going to just get right to it. Let’s put on our thinking caps, break out our playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is find/found.

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

  2. Happy Birthday! Mine was on Thursday. I don’t usually mention it either, but because it was a milestone I wrote a post on it. I didn’t get to finish my song last Sunday because I wasn’t feeling well and just couldn’t think let alone write. But the good thing is I can use the same song I started for that one. In fact, it fits this theme much better! If lost is warm, could it be “lose”?

  6. Many happy returns, Helen, and thanks for this great blog event. It’s not “keep” nor “let go” or “lose”? Hmmmm, I am looking forward to the surprise next week :-). My post will be up this afternoon. Take care and a big hug to you.

    • Thank you!

      So, maybe the search part is throwing everyone off. I’d already chosen “search” when I came up with the ideas for multiple weeks, but it probably should have been “seek”. However, it isn’t destroy or let go. 😊

  19. Well, I can’t guess next week’s theme but this week, I have done still another therapeutic trip down Memory Lane.

    My first thought was Traffic (“Can’t Find my way Home” but I see so many versions of it, I’m sure it will be used.

    In the mean time, have a wonderful Day. I am glad you were born so we could cross paths, even if only cyber-ly. (Is that a word? I think it should be!)

    Here’s my post for this theme:

  25. Happy Birthday to my most amazing sister. I wish I could find the words to adequately express what she means to me. You’re awesome sissy. I have decided to go in a bit of a different direction, because these last few months I have been searching for and finding what is important to me.I though of respect when I read the theme. I realized I needed to find respect for myself, so with that in mind I chose the queen of soul singing respect.
    Written by Otis Redding from Genius Lyrics

    What you want, baby, I got it
    What you need, do you know I got it?
    All I’m askin’ is for a little respect when you get home
    (Just a little bit) Hey baby
    (Just a little bit) when you get home
    (Just a little bit) mister
    (Just a little bit)

    I ain’t gonna do you wrong while you’re gone
    Ain’t gon’ do you wrong ’cause I don’t wanna
    All I’m askin’ is for a little respect when you come home
    (Just a little bit) Baby
    (Just a little bit) When you get home
    (Just a little bit) Yeah
    (Just a little bit)

    I’m about to give you all of my money
    And all I’m askin’ in return, honey
    Is to give me my propers when you get home
    (Just a, just a, just a, just a) Yeah, baby
    (Just a, just a, just a, just a) When you get home
    (Just a little bit) Yeah
    (Just a little bit)

    Ooh, your kisses, sweeter than honey
    And guess what? So is my money
    All I want you to do for me, is give it to me when you get home
    (Re, re, re ,re) Yeah baby
    (Re, re, re ,re) Whip it to me
    (Respect, just a little bit) When you get home, now
    (Just a little bit)

    R-E-S-P-E-C-T, find out what it means to me
    R-E-S-P-E-C-T, take care, TCB, oh
    (Sock it to me, sock it to me, sock it to me, sock it to me)
    A little respect
    (sock it to me, sock it to me, sock it to me, sock it to me)
    Whoa, babe
    (Just a little bit) A little respect
    (Just a little bit) I get tired
    (Just a little bit) Keep on tryin’
    (Just a little bit) You’re runnin’ out of fools
    (Just a little bit) And I ain’t lyin’
    (Just a little bit)
    (Re, re, re, re) Start when you come home
    (Re, re, re, respect) Or you might walk in
    (Just a little bit) And find out I’m gone
    (Just a little bit) I gotta have
    (Just a little bit) A little respect
    (Just a little bit)

  27. Reblogged this on Wonderwall and commented:
    As I was clearing tables at work, I was pondering which song could fit the theme of Found and what the word would be for the final part of the triology, following search and found.

    Thought may search then find heaven, love or peace. Also thought about searching / seeking and finding answers. Then I passed through the work kitchen and caught a snippet of a great song. A song with the line ‘It’s not an answer but a question learnt in time’. Sometimes you are searching but, do not know you are, until later. The song is by
    Good Riddance (Time of Your Life)
    Green Day
    Another turning point, a fork stuck in the road
    Time grabs you by the wrist, directs you where to go
    So make the best of this test, and don’t ask why
    It’s not a question, but a lesson learned in time
    It’s something unpredictable, but in the end it’s right
    I hope you had the time of your life
    So take the photographs, and still-frames in your mind
    Hang them on a shelf in good health and good time
    Tattoo’s of memories and dead skin on trial
    For what it’s worth, it was worth all the while
    It’s something unpredictable, but in the end it’s right
    I hope you had the time of your life
    It’s something unpredictable, but in the end is right
    I hope you had the time of your life
    It’s something unpredictable, but in the end is right
    I hope you had the time of your life
    Songwriters: Michael Pritchard / Frank E. / Iii Wright / Billie Joe Armstrong

  29. Trying to guess what next week’s theme will be is driving me nuts! What I keep coming back to is my favorite basic video game genre. Sometimes called “seek and find” , it’s also called “hidden object.” So I’m guessing next week’s theme will be “hidden”?

  31. Happy Birthday, Helen!

    I hope your day was a very special one. I wish I could’ve played along in SLS this week but the weekends I generally am no where to be found in Blogosphere. lol I’m one of these people who like to post ahead so if I can do that then things are groovy with me. 🙂 Have you considered including your weekly themes somewhere on your site or is it already here and I am not looking in the right place? I just thought I’d ask. Oh well…have a good week and feel free to link up with the 4M gang. You have mewsic and that’s all that matters to us! 😉 Have a tunetastic week!

    • Thank you very much!

      I don’t include my themes on my site in advance. I do a theme post on Saturdays for the next day. It seems to work, but I can also see how it might not work for everyone. You are welcome to post on a different day; others have done that as well.

      I hope you have a great week!
