5 thoughts on “What Are Your Favorite Song Lyrics?”

  1. 1. Advice I could listen to a lot more served up by Mary J. Blige in the song “No More Drama”:

    “It feels so good
    When you let go of all the drama in your life
    Now you’re free from all the pain (free from all the pain)
    Free from all the game (free from all the game)
    Free from all the stress (free from all the stress)
    So find your happiness.”

    2. from “Rock the Nation” by Michael Franti: “So I raise my voice before I lose my soul.”

    3. from “Excuse Me, Mister” by Ben Harper:
    “See ’cause Mr. when you’re rattling
    On heaven’s gate
    Let me tell you Mr.
    By then it is too late
    ‘Cause Mr. when you get there
    They don’t ask, they don’t ask what you saved
    All they’ll want to know, Mr.
    Is what you gave.”

    4. from Sinead O’Connor’s song the “Emperor’s New Clothes”:
    “Whatever it may bring
    I will live by my own policies
    I will sleep with a clear conscience
    I will sleep in peace.”

    5. from “House” by the Psychedelic Furs: “This day is not my life.”

    6. While I don’t believe everything in the song “You’ve Got to Learn” by Nina Simone, I love the line, “You’ve got to learn to leave the table when love’s no longer being served.”

    7. from Acrobat by U2: “And you can dream, so dream out loud”

  2. “The colors of the rainbow
    so pretty in the sky.
    Are also on the faces of people
    going by.
    I see friends shaking hands
    saying how do you do.
    They’re really saying, I love you.”
    – from Louis Armstrong “What a Wonderful World.”

    1. or more from the same song:
      “I hear babies crying, I watch them grow.
      They’ll learn much more than I’ll ever know.
      And I think to myself, what a wonderful world.”

  3. I found these lyrics playing in my head yesterday on my morning walk: “Oh what a beautiful mornin’, oh what a beautiful day…” “there’s a bright golden haze on the meadow, there’s a bright golden haze on the meadow; the corn is as high as an elephant’s eye, and it looks like it’s climbing clear up to the sky…” from the musical “Oklahoma” by Rogers and Hammerstein.

    1. Today, as we celebrate the birth of our nation, some more beautiful song lyrics: from the national song of Finland.
