Song Lyric Sunday – A Little Less Conversation

The Word of the Day is Conversation and I instantly thought of this song:

A little less conversation a little more action. 🙂

 

 

 

A little less conversation, a little more action, please
All this aggravation ain’t satisfaction in me
A little more bite and a little less bark
A little less fight and a little more spark
Close your mouth and open up your heart and, baby, satisfy me
Satisfy me, baby
Baby, close your eyes and listen to the music
Drifting through a summer breeze
It’s a groovy night and I can show you how to use it
Come along with me and put your mind at ease
A little less conversation, a little more action, please
All this aggravation ain’t satisfaction in me
A little more bite and a little less bark
A little less fight and a little more spark
Close your mouth and open up your heart and, baby, satisfy me
(Satisfy me) Satisfy me, baby (satisfy me)
Come on, baby, I’m tired of talking
Grab your coat and let’s start walking
Come on, come on (come on, come on)
Come on, come on (come on, come on)
Come on, come on (come on, come on)
Don’t procrastinate, don’t articulate
Girl, it’s getting late, gettin’ upset waitin’ around
A little less conversation, a little more action, please
All this aggravation ain’t satisfactioning me
A little more bite and a little less bark
A little less fight and a little more spark
Close your mouth and open up your heart and, baby, satisfy me
(Satisfy me) Satisfy me, baby (satisfy me)
Come on, baby, I’m tired of talking
Grab your coat and let’s start walking
Come on, come on (come on, come on)
Come on, come on (come on, come on)
Come on, come on (come on, come on)
Don’t procrastinate, don’t articulate
Girl, it’s getting late, gettin’ upset waitin’ around
A little less conversation, a little more action, please
All this aggravation ain’t satisfactioning me
A little more bite and a little less bark
A little less fight and a little more spark
Close your mouth and open up your heart and, baby, satisfy me
(Satisfy me) Satisfy me (satisfy me)

 

Don’t Stop – Songs that are Unstoppable

The Word of the Day is Unstoppable,

https://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com/2020/07/13/unstoppable/

 

I thought I’d share with you a song or two,

that makes me happy when I’m feeling blue,

They’re upbeat songs and full of class,

with unstoppable rhythms and a blast of brass

you just can’t help dancing around a bit

So now I’ve shared, you can all benefit 🙂

Saturday Song Lyrics – Rivers

The Word of the Day is River

and so I instantly thought of these songs,

https://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com/2020/06/27/river-2/

 

  1. Billy Joel – The River of Dreams

 

2. Christie – Yellow River

 

and finally, a little something from me. A version of the classic song Moon River, sung by me. 🙂

 

Newly? Newley? Close enough :-)

The Word of the Day is Newly, and for some reason, this made me think of a Singer and Actor, Anthony Newley.

He was married to the Actress Joan Collins and had quite a few hits in the UK charts in the ’50s and early ’60s including this song: Why.

This song always makes me cry a bit, my Mum used to sing it to me when I was little as a lullaby.

Sunny – Yesterday my life was filled with rain.

 

The Word of the Day is Sunny and that made me think of this song by Boney M from 1976.

I hope you enjoy this reminder of a different time back in the 1970s.

https://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com/2020/05/30/sunny/

The lyrics are as follows:

Sunny,
yesterday my life was filled with rain.
Sunny,
you smiled at me and really eased the pain.
The dark days are gone,
and the bright days are here,
My sunny one shines so sincere.
Sunny one so true, I love you.

Sunny,
thank you for the sunshine bouquet.
Sunny,
thank you for the love you brought my way.
You gave to me your all and all.
Now I feel ten feet tall.
Sunny one so true, I love you.

Sunny,
thank you for the truth you let me see.
Sunny,
thank you for the facts from a to c.
My life was torn like a windblown sand,
And the rock was formed when you held my hand.
Sunny one so true, I love you.

Sunny

(Instrumental)

Sunny,
thank you for the smile upon your face.
Sunny,
thank you for the gleam that shows its grace.
You’re my spark of natures fire,
You’re my sweet complete desire.
Sunny one so true, I love you
Yes, I love you, baby.

Sunny,
yesterday my life was filled with rain.
Sunny,
you smiled at me and really eased the pain.
The dark days are gone,
and the bright days are here,
My sunny one shines so sincere.
Sunny one so true, I love you, yeah.

I love you.
I love you.
I love you.
I love you.

Song Lyric Saturday – Love Letters in the Sand

So the Word of the Day is Sand and I couldn’t help but think of this golden oldie song – Love letters in the Sand.

On a day like today
We passed the time away
Writing love letters in the sand
How you laughed when I cried
Each time I saw the tide
Take our love letters from the sand
You made a vow that you would ever be true
But somehow that vow meant nothing to you
Now my broken heart aches
With every wave that breaks
Over love letters in the sand
Now my broken heart aches
With every wave that breaks
Over love letters in the sand
I would love to write some lyrics as lovely as this. The song was written by Nick Kenny, J. Fred Coots and Charles Kenny, and made famous by Pat Boone.

Call, me a total Maniac but I decided to try to sing it myself:


Dancing in a Circle – A Poem and a Song

Here’s a poem that I have just written about procrastinating…

 

I was dancing in a circle

my cheeks flushed with rosy hues

I wondered why my life had changed

I was puzzled and confused.

I was dancing in a circle

when my head began to spin

the world continued passing by

I was scared to enter in.

But life continues on without me,

As I dance here on my own.

Then one day I’ll wonder

why all that time had flown?

And here is a song I sang about Dancing:

FOWC with Fandango — Circle

 

 

SMILE – Even though you don’t feel like it sometimes.

Right now, I’m feeling a bit fed up and I have a sore and swollen eye, but at times like this, I remember this song by Nat King Cole. So I thought I’d sing it too and share it with you, in the hope it makes you Smile. 🙂

 

 

Oh, and happy Mother‘s Day too. 🙂

Victory in Europe day – 75 years since the end of WWII in Europe. Time for a Sing Song

Image may contain: 1 person, crowd and outdoor

 

So, 75 years ago today it was Victory in Europe day, V.E day. That’s a fact.

The war in the far east rattled on for a few more months, but the war in Europe was finally over and peace was restored.

Seeing the crowds gathering in the streets to celebrate the end of a long and desperate war must have been a sight to behold.

To celebrate I have recorded new versions of two wartime classics.
