Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 11/13/16

Hello everyone!  Happy Saturday!

I have to admit that I’m still reeling from the events of this week.  It’s so much, that I haven’t been able to write, even though I’ve sat down to do it several times.  I am also stumped on a theme for this week.  Everything that I felt was fitting has already been a theme in the not so distant past and I’m not sure that any of them truly fit anyway.

The one post that I read this week that is standing out to me today was about art – how art has allowed us to speak out and that we must continue to create, especially now.  I’m left feeling that this week needs to be an open expression of whatever you might be feeling.

So, our Song Lyric Sunday theme for this week is not really a theme at all.  Just express yourself through music… let’s let music speak for us and through us this week.

We’re all here sharing our love of music and lyrics, and most of all, having a great time!

Also, if you would like to suggest a theme, I am open to suggestions.   Please either pop it in the comments or send me an email at redesp75@yahoo.com.

Here are the “rules”:

  • Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it fits the theme or not
  • Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due and it’s honestly just a simple Google search
  • Make sure you also credit the singer/band and provide a link to where you found the lyrics
  • Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song
  • Ping back to this post or my own Song Lyric Sunday post
  • Read at least one other person’s blog so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process

Feel free to use the Song Lyric Sunday badge by copying it into your post or add it to your site to show you are participating.

  8. Working on a college campus has been surreal this week to say the least. As a historian I have been able to look at things from a distance and from all sides, but the thing that helped the most was my job as an oral historian. I went to interview a WWII vet on Thursday and was overwhelmed when this vet walked towards me in his old dress blues. He held himself with dignity and pride and I was so overcome that it took a minute to compose myself. I decided to chose a song from the WWII era not just because I am a WWII historian, but because this song gives me hope, and the music just makes me smile.

    written by Don Raye and Hughie Prince lyrics from Google Play

    He was a famous trumpet man from out Chicago way
    He had a boogie style that no one else could play
    He was the top man at his craft
    But then his number came up and he was gone with the draft
    He’s in the army now, a-blowin’ reveille
    He’s the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

    They made him blow a bugle for his Uncle Sam
    It really brought him down because he couldn’t jam
    The captain seemed to understand
    Because the next day the cap’ went out and drafted a band
    And now the company jumps when he plays reveille
    He’s the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

    A-toot, a-toot, a-toot-diddelyada-toot
    He blows it eight-to-the-bar, in boogie rhythm
    He can’t blow a note unless the bass and guitar is playin’ with ‘I’m
    He makes the company jump when he plays reveille
    He’s the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

    He was our boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B
    And when he plays boogie woogie bugle he was buzy as a “bzzz” bee
    And when he plays he makes the company jump eight-to-the-bar
    He’s the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

    Toot-toot-toot, toot-diddelyada, toot-diddelyada
    Toot, toot, he blows it eight-to-the-bar
    He can’t blow a note if the bass and guitar isn’t with ‘I’m
    A-a-a-and the company jumps when he plays reveille
    He’s the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

    He puts the boys asleep with boogie every night
    And wakes ’em up the same way in the early bright
    They clap their hands and stamp their feet
    Because they know how he plays when someone gives him a beat
    He really breaks it up when he plays reveille
    He’s the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B

    Da-doo-da da-doo-da-da da
    Da-doo-da da-doo-da-da da
    Da-doo-da da-doo-da-da da
    Da-doo-da da-doo-da-da
    A-a-a-and the company jumps when he plays reveille
    He’s the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B!
