A small group of us are finding songs to sing with a small audience. This one came into my inbox this afternoon and is just perfect for today. “What’s In A Song” Click below to listen.
1) There are times when the folks are having a ball And the drinks and the jokes could fill up a hall But give me a song, a chorus, or more
And that’s when I’m likely to soar.
Oh they say there is nothing like having a feast
To bring folks close together from north, south, west, east But give us a song when the feasting is done
And that’s when the many are one… Oh…
2) There’s a time and a place for sorrow and woe When the pain and the tears are expected to flow But give me a song and voices close by
And that’s when I’m likely to cry
There’ve been times when my heart has wanted to weep But the pain and the tears were buried too deep
Then out of the blue in a roomful of song
The locked-inside feeling was gone…Oh..
3) There are places where pleasure is wrapped up and sold And you purchase a moment with silver andgold
But the pleasure of singing’s a blessing to me
‘Cause I know it by heart and it’s free
Oh, the times I remember and cherish so much
When we reach with our voices – it’s almost like touch
And we pull in the circle and banish our fears And we try to keep singing for years…Oh…
The following quotation is also apt for today.
