Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 11/11/18

After the crazy weekend last time around (my standards have seriously changed lately on what I consider a busy weekend), we decided to take it easy. That didn’t stop me from trying to clean my house today. It didn’t take me long to realize that my back just doesn’t allow me to do certain things anymore. I suppose I should feel lucky that housecleaning appears to be out. I honestly just feel sad about it. Plus, it appears we will most likely need to hire someone to clean the house, which is another monthly expense and added stress. Maybe I should stick to the grateful part?

Anyway, I am going to get to the theme today. I came up with one you just might like, since it has a few different directions you can take it. I’m looking forward to seeing how it inspires your music choices. Let’s put on our thinking caps, break out our playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is soul.

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.

  20. I don’t know what this song has to do with soul, but it has been stuck in my head for days, so I thought I would just share it. I recently moved out of the house I have been in for the last 18 years with my son, and am now just waiting on my divorce to be final. This song makes me think about getting back to what is important to me, doing my own “soul” searching to rediscover myself. I have to give a tremendous thanks to my sis, for being a huge source of comfort and support. I am so grateful that she is a constant in my life. I chose the Sara Bareilles cover, because I just love her voice.
    Written by Bernie Taupin and Elton John from Google

    When are you gonna come down?
    When are you going to land?
    I should have stayed on the farm
    I should have listened to my old man
    You know you can’t hold me forever
    I didn’t sign up with you
    I’m not a present for your friends to open
    This boy’s too young to be singing the blues
    So goodbye yellow brick road where the dogs of society howl
    You can’t plant me in your penthouse
    I’m going back to my plough
    Back to the howling old owl in the woods
    Hunting the horny back toad
    Oh, I’ve finally decided my future lies
    Beyond the yellow brick road
    So what do you think you’ll do then?
    I bet that’ll shoot down your plane
    It’ll take you a couple of vodka and tonics to set you on your feet again
    Maybe you’ll get a replacement
    There’s plenty like me to be found
    Mongrels who ain’t got a penny
    Sniffing for tidbits like you on the ground
    So goodbye yellow brick road where the dogs of society howl
    You can’t plant me in your penthouse
    I’m going back to my plough
    Back to the howling old owl in the woods
    Hunting the horny back toad
    Oh, I’ve finally decided my future lies
    Beyond the yellow brick road
    So goodbye yellow brick road where the dogs of society howl
    You can’t plant me in your penthouse
    I’m going back to my plough
    Back to the howling old owl in the woods
    Hunting the horny back toad
    Oh, I’ve finally decided my future lies
    I’ve finally decided my future lies
    I’ve finally decided my future lies
    Beyond the yellow brick road
