I woke up this morning with a song attached to my brain. I know I dreamed about it last night but since I almost never remember what my dreams are I can’t give you the context. Here is the lyrics of the song; I hope I don’t cause you to be humming it all day as I likely am:
Sing out loud,
sing out strong,
Sing of the good things, not bad,
Sing of the happy, not sad
. . .
Sing, sing a song,
Make it simple, to last your whole life long,
Don’t worry that it’s not good enough,
For anyone else to hear,
Sing, sing a song . . .La, la la la la . . .
I looked it up and found that it was originally sung by Perry Como and was later recorded by the Carpenters. Yeah, I know anyone under 60 probably don’t know who either of these were. Since my mind version of the song sounded like a duet it must have been the Carpenters that I remember.
After humming and singing the song to myself (at least I think it was to myself but since I don’t hear my own voice I can’t verify that ) I thought that this is also my current goal for this blog site. Just replace the word “sing” with “blog” and that is where I am right now. I have given up most of the “dark side” of life here, at least temporarily, to concentrate of happy not sad.
Enough for now. I just had to get this song out of my head….
