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)

 

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:

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. 🙂

Saturday Songs – Only The Lonely

The Word of the Day is Lonely and its rather appropriate, as during this Lockdown, my current situation of living on my own is rather making me feel a bit lonely. I have to say though, it also makes me appreciate my friends and family who have been great at keeping in touch. 🙂

https://wordofthedaychallenge.wordpress.com/2020/04/25/lonely/

In order to raise my spirits, I’ve been singing and I decided to give one of my favourite Roy Orbison songs a go:

 

 

Happy Saturday and I hope you’re not too lonely 🙂

Sunday Songs – Secrets

The Word of the Day is Secret,

It’s no secret that I love the golden oldies and the classic songs of yesteryear. The Word of the Day made me think of these songs:

  1. Do you want to know a secret? – This was originally written and performed by the Beatles, but I like this version by Billy J Kramer and the Dakotas.

 

2. Secret Love by the Wonderful Doris Day – It’s no secret to those that know me that I thought Doris was wonderful.

3. Finally, it is a bit of a secret that I love to sing, not always brilliantly, but here is a song that I sang about being stuck in Lockdown…

Happy Sunday 🙂 x

This is my tribute to health workers – They Are the Champions.

OK, so I know I’m not the greatest singer in the world, I don’t aspire to be, and I didn’t practice or warm-up, so it’s not a great rendition, but I certainly gave it my all!

It’s my tribute to all the health workers who are the Champions and make us all feel better. 

This is probably a sign that I’m cracking under the strain of staying indoors, who knows what crazy antics I’ll be getting up to tonight?!?
