People Got To Be Free

Favorite Line(s):
All the world over, so easy to see
People everywhere just wanna be free (wanna be free)
I can’t understand it, so simple to me
People everywhere just got to be free
If there’s a man
Who is down and needs a helpin’ hand
All it takes is you to understand and
To pull him through, ah hah
Seems to me
We got to solve it individually, ah ah
And I’ll do unto you what you do to me

It’s A Beautiful Morning

Favorite Line(s):
It’s a beautiful mornin’
Ah, yeah.
I think I’ll go outside a while,
And just smile.
Just take in some clean fresh air,
Cause
Ain’t no sense in stayin’ inside
If the weather’s fine and you got the time.
It’s your chance to wake up and plan another brand new day.

This year, my wife has spent seven long (to me anyway) weeks visiting her family back in Liverpool, England.  She is coming back to me today.
If my life can be described as a tree with all of the branches and leaves as my personal choices and experiences, then our marriage has been the tree’s trunk and my Hil has been the tree’s roots, binding us to the good earth.  Winter is over and Spring has arrived!

Today I’ve added two song lyrics to my Poems page.  I’ve also updated six more of the ones already on the page to include the YouTube videos.
The additions are: “Lydia – The Tattooed Lady” and “People Got To Be Free“.  The performances are by Groucho Marx, and The Young Rascals, respectively.
Both of these songs are songs which just popped into my head when I woke up and stuck there for the rest of the day.  Both are from my earlier years – the first (“Lydia“) before I understood the “implications” of being a female in the circus and “tattooed”.  While humorously presented, it has a quite serious side.
The second song is from one of my all time favorite groups as an early youth: “The Young Rascals“, later shortened to just “The Rascals“.  These guys had a string of hits, and this is one of my favorites.  I’m sure there will be more to come…
My favorite lines are:
Ask me my opinion,
My opinion will be
It’s a natural situation
For a man to be free
The six updates are:
I Am A Rock
Like A Rock
I Hope You Dance
She’s Gone
Like A Rolling Stone
I’m A Believer
If you don’t know these songs or haven’t read the lyrics lately, you owe it to yourself to check them out.  Then you can drop down to the bottom of the page to enjoy the performance.
As always, read the lyrics, enjoy the performances, then go support these artists or the artists of your choice.  Participate in supporting the Arts locally!  Keep Art alive in your community!
