This is the song that came into my mind, but I’m sure I will not be the only one.

Sandy – Written by: LOUIS ST. LOUIS, SCOTT SIMON (of Sha Na Na) and performed by John Travolta in the film Grease.

Stranded at the drivin', branded a fool
What will they say Monday at school?

Sandy, can't you see I'm in misery?
We made a start, now we're apart
There's nothing left for me

Love has flown, all alone I sit and wonder why yi-yi-yi
Oh why you left me, oh Sandy, oh Sandy

Baby, someday, when high school is done
Somehow, someway, our two worlds will be one
In heaven forever and ever we will be
Oh, please say you'll stay, oh, Sandy!

Sandy, my darlin'
You hurt me real bad
You know it's true
But, baby, you gotta believe me when I say
I'm helpless without you

Love has flown, all alone, I sit
I wonder why yi-yi-yi,
Oh why
You left me,
Oh Sandy
Sandy, Sandy
Why yi-yi-yi

Oh Sandy

I’ve just noticed that Padre of Padre’s Ramblings has also posted this one:

So how about this one from the same great musical?

Look at me, I'm Sandra Dee
Lousy with virginity
Won't go to bed 'til I'm legally wed
I can't I'm Sandra Dee

Watch it! Hey I'm Doris Day
I was not brought up that way
Won't come across, even Rock Hudson lost
His heart to Doris Day

I don't drink (No)
Or swear (No)
I don't rat my hair (Ew)
I get ill from one cigarette
Keep your filthy paws
Off my silky draws
Would you pull that crap with Annette?

As for you Troy Donahue,
I know what you wanna do
You've got your crust
I'm no object of lust
I'm just plain Sandra Dee

Elvis, Elvis, let me be!
Keep that pelvis far from me!
Just keep your cool
Now your starting to drool
Hey Fongool, I'm Sandra Dee!

Song Lyric Sunday – Always and Forever

The Challenge set by Jim Adams in his post linked below, is to find a song lyric that has something to do with a prompt. This week we have the time related prompts of Endless/Eternity/Everlasting/Forever/Infinity/Omega,

https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2021/03/27/omega-is-the-end-of-the-line/

I remembered a song that was popular for Weddings back in the 80’s and I went to many family weddings where this song was the Bridal couple’s dance. Sad that not all those marriages lasted Always and Forever…

Always and Forever –

Written by Rod Temperton.

Always and forever
Each moment with you
Is just like a dream to me
That somehow came true, yeah

And I know tomorrow
Will still be the same
‘Cause we got a life of love
That won’t ever change and

Everyday, love me your own special way
Melt all my heart away, with a smile
Take time to tell me, you really care
And we’ll share tomorrow together (Always forever love you)
Ooh baby, I’ll always love you, forever (Always forever love you)
Ever, ever, ever

There’ll always be sunshine
When I look at you, yeah
It’s something I can’t explain
Just the things that you do

And if you get lonely
Call me and take
A second to give to me
That magic you make and

Everyday, love me your own special way
Melt all my heart away, with a smile
Take time to tell me, you really care
And we’ll…

The song was performed by Luther Vandross, but I remember another version by the band, Heatwave.

Hope you enjoy this version.

Silver Bells – Some Christmas Music

The Word of the Day is Bells and that reminded me of one of my favourite Christmas songs. Silver Bells, which was sung in an old film called the Lemon Drop Kid.

I’ve recorded my own version here:

And another Christmas song that I didn’t sing is a song by the Band the Darkness.

Christmas Time (Don’t let the Bells End).

A peaceful and Safe Christmas to everyone 🙂

Song Lyric Sunday – A Little Less Conversation

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

https://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com/2020/07/26/conversation/

 

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)

 

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.

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:

 

 

The Word of the Day is 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. 🙂
