#atozchallenge – Under The Boardwalk

Under the Boardwalk – The Drifters

Oh when the sun beats down and burns the tar up on the roof

And your shoes get so hot you wish your tired feet were fire proof

Under the boardwalk, down by the sea, yeah

On a blanket with my baby is where I’ll be

(Under the boardwalk) out of the sun

(Under the boardwalk) we’ll be havin’ some fun

(Under the boardwalk) people walking above

(Under the boardwalk) we’ll be falling in love

Under the boardwalk, boardwalk!

From the park you hear the happy sound of a carousel

Mm-mm, you can almost taste the hot dogs and French fries they sell

Under the boardwalk, down by the sea

On a blanket with my baby is where I’ll be

(Under the boardwalk) out of the sun

(Under the boardwalk) we’ll be havin’ some fun

(Under the boardwalk) people walking above

(Under the boardwalk) we’ll be making love

Under the boardwalk, boardwalk!

Ooh, under the boardwalk, down by the sea, yeah

On a blanket with my baby is where I’ll be

#atozchallenge – The Way You Do The Things You Do

The Way You Do The Things You Do – The Temptations

You got a smile so bright

You know you could have been a candle
I’m holding you so tight
You know you could have been a handle
The way you swept me off my feet
You know you could’ve been a broom
The way you smell so sweet
You know you could’ve been some perfume

Well you could’ve been anything that you wanted to
And I can tell
The way you do the things you do, ah baby (the way you do the thing you do, the way you do the things you do)

As pretty as you are
You know you could’ve been a flower
If good looks were minutes
You know that you could be an hour
The way you stole my heart
You know you could have been a crook
And baby your so smart
You know you could have been a school book

Well you could’ve been anything that you wanted to
And I can tell
The way you do the things you do, ah baby (the way you do the thing you do, the way you do the things you do)

You make my life so rich
You know you could’ve been some money
And baby you’re so sweet
You know you could have been some honey

Well you could’ve been anything that you wanted to
And I can tell
The way you do the things you do, ah baby (the way you do the thing you do, the way you do the things you do)

You really swept me off my feet (the way you do the things you do)
You made my life complete (the way you do the things you do)
You made my life so bright (the way you do the things you do)
You made me feel alright (the way you do the things you do)
You make me feel alright (the way you do the things you do)

This guy must really like the girl he’s singing to because he’s running it down to her.

#atozchallenge – Summertime

Summertime

Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald

 

Summertime, and the livin’ is easy

Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high

Oh, your daddy’s rich and your ma is good-lookin’

So hush little baby, Don’t you cry
One of these mornings you’re gonna rise up singing

And you’ll spread your wings and you’ll take to the sky

But ’til that morning, there ain’t nothin’ can harm you

With Daddy and Mammy standin’ by
Summertime, and the livin’ is easy

Fish are jumpin’ and the cotton is high

Oh, your daddy’s rich and your ma is good-lookin’

So hush little baby, Don’t you cry
One of these mornings you’re gonna rise up singing

And you’ll spread your wings and you’ll take to the sky

But ’til that morning, there ain’t nothin can harm you

With Daddy and Mammy standin’ by

My Summertime

Summertime is on its way

Fun in the sun and swimming pool play

Sipping iced tea and lemonade

Sitting back relaxing oh what a day

Without a worry or care

Not an ounce of despair

Summertime, fun time

Oh happy day

Release the Angels

  Meredith Mauldin

Release the angels

at the sound of

the sound of your praise

Release the angel

to guide us into all of your ways

Your kingdom come

Your will be done

Prepare the way for the coming of your throne

Release the angels

To make ready the way of the King

Release the angels

To fight in the battle unseen

Your kingdom come

Your will be done

Prepare the way for the coming of your Son

Let your praise ring up to the sky

Heavens open up wide

I’ll praise Your name

Let the angels fly

Release the angels

To make ready the way of the King

Release the angels

To fight in the battle unseen

Your kingdom come

Your will be done

Prepare the way for the coming of your Son

Your kingdom come

Your will be done

Prepare the way for the coming of your Son

Release the angels…

Release the angels…

Release the angels…

Release the angels…

Thank you Lord for releasing the Angels to war on our behalf.

 

#atozchallenge – Quick Trip-Quiet Time

Q.jpg

Q         Quick Trip-Quiet Time

 

There is a gas station that is called Quick Trip. It’s a place you go to when you need to make a quick trip to gas up your car or your lawn mower needs gas to cut the grass.

 

At Quick Trip you can get snacks, drinks and for those who smoke cigarettes. If you’re feeling lucky you can spend your last two dollars on a lotto ticket. Your last two dollars can make you a millionaire or a thousandaire. (My spell check said that isn’t a word-I just made it up)

 

Sometimes we don’t need a quick trip, but a little quiet time. A time to step aside from the hustle and bustle of the moment, day or week and reflect on the good and bad of the day. It’s good to be able to take a deep breath and exhale slowly while we count the things to be grateful for.

 

Whether on a quick trip or having quiet time enjoy the journey.
