#SLS 5/17/20 – 180

song-lyric-sunday

This week Jim has given us the prompt of finding a song that includes a number for #SLS.

In many of my other posts I have written about my strong Catholic Faith along with many other aspects of my personal life. Today I have chosen a song by Jordan Feliz called “180”.  It is song about an individual asking for God to assist him in doing a 180 degree turnaround in their life and returning to remain in their faith.

This happens a lot to individuals like myself who suffer from the disease of alcoholism or any other addiction problems. But in order for a person to truly make that 180 degree turnaround they must truly do the work and have faith in a Higher Power that will be there through the good and the bad. I have truly turned my will back over to my Higher Power whom I choose to call God and I am happy that the 180 degree turnaround is happening in me and I am truly loving life and myself today.

Lyrics
Father, can You hear me now?
I’m feeling like I’ve let You down
I’ve lost the strength to turn myself around
I really hope You hear me now
How’d I get so far away?
What if I outrun Your grace?
Can You replace these broken yesterdays?
And promise me I’m not too late
Call me home, I want to be Your own
I’m running desperately into Your arms where I belong
And I know Your love can turn this heart
A hundred and eighty degrees to bring me back to where You are
Tell me I am welcomed in
Show me mercy doesn’t end
Wash these muddy stains that marked my skin
And tell me I can start again
Call me home, I want to be Your own
I’m running desperately into Your arms where I belong
And I know Your love can turn this heart
A hundred and eighty degrees to bring me back to where You are
I can barely believe it
You’re racing to meet me
Your eyes filled with healing, oh
Restoring, redeeming
Forgiving, receiving
This is my beginning, oh
Call me home, I want to be Your own
I’m running desperately into Your arms where I belong (I belong)
And I know Your love can turn this heart
A hundred and eighty degrees to bring me back to where You are
I’m running desperately, ooh
A hundred and eighty degrees, I’m back to where You are
A hundred and eighty degrees

#SLS 5/10/20 – Together

song-lyric-sunday
So, Jim has given us the prompts of Couple/Together/Us for this week’s #SLS. I have chosen Sonny and Cher’s You and I.  I love this song because of the message. Even thought Sonny and Cher divorced they stayed very good friends and kept grooving together!!!! That’s what’s in My Rattled Cage, thanks for stopping by!!!

Lyrics
Baby, here we are,
Waiting here for time, to play the game
Let love steal us away.
Baby here I am, holding charts
To guide us through the storm,
To a brighter day
You and I will be together,
Many lessons, learned–Oh Baby.
From a past, that’s live too many lies.
Yesterday is gone forever–Oh Baby,
All that I can see–
You and I living together
Just, you and I groovin’ forever–
Trusting every word,
Just to mean, what has been handed down,
In time.
We’ve known hurt before.
Masters of my dreams,
Create a place to feel this love of mine–
And never hurt no more–
You and I living together
Just, you and I groovin’ forever–
We must trust the dark,
For showing us the stars.
We must trust the rain,
And open up our hearts.
Just, you and I living together.
You and I groovin’ forever.

#SLS – That’s Why God Made Mexico

song-lyric-sunday

For this week’s #SLS Jim has given us Cinco De Mayo Again with the following prompts:  Burrito/Fajita/Mexican/Tequila.  So here it goes!! I had never heard this song before but the message is pretty clear if you need to lay low or you just need to get away, That’s Why God Made Mexico written and sung by one of my favorite country artists Tim McGraw.

That’s what’s in My Rattled Cage, thanks for stopping by!!

 

That’s Why God Made Mexico
Margie said Roy you ain’t listening to me
And I got a whole lot more to say
Roy just crossed the floor and picked up his car keys
She ain’t seen nor heard from him to this day
And that’s why God made Mexico
A place where we can lay low
Where the Cuervo goes down nice and slow
And the warm winds blow
That’s why God made Mexico
And Betty fixed Joe dinner every night half past six
‘Cause that’s when he’d roll through that door
Sixteen years and not a thank you from his lips
She don’t fix him dinner no more
And that’s why God made Mexico
A place where we can lay low
Where the Cuervo goes down nice and slow
And the warm winds blow
That’s why God made Mexico
Life is sweet in a border town
You learn to let your hair down
And you don’t make trouble
You learn to…

#AtoZChallenge2020 – Zip-A-Dee-Doo-Dah

Z2020

I want to say that I have thoroughly enjoyed sharing some of my favorite music from my Apple Music playlist during the #AtoZChallege2020.  I cannot believe we are already at the end at the letter “Z”.  It seems as though although most of us have been in shelter in place due to the #COVID-19 pandemic, the month of April has just flown by.  I hope that everyone else has enjoyed participating and reading all of the wonderful entries from this year as much as I have.

So, of course I do not have any songs in my playlist with titles that begin with the letter “Z”. That won’t stop me though. I can fall back on an old favorite Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah performed by James Baskett.

The hit song from from Walt Disney’s “Song of the South” released in 1946 was “Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah”, which won the 1947 Academy Award for Best Song and is frequently used as part of Disney’s montage themes, and which has become widely used  in popular culture. The film inspired the Disney theme park attraction Splash Mountain.  The film was a combination of live action and animation. Disney hired vaudeville and radio actor James Baskett to portray Uncle Remus.

Lyrics
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
My, oh, my, what a wonderful day
Plenty of sunshine headin’ my way
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay!
Mister Bluebird’s on my shoulder
It’s the truth, it’s “actch’ll”
Everything is “satisfactch’ll”
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
Wonderful feeling, wonderful day!
Yes, sir
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
My, oh, my, what a wonderful day
Plenty of sunshine headin’ my way
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay!
Mister Bluebird’s on my shoulder
It’s the truth, it’s “actch’ll”
Everything is “satisfactch’ll”
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
Wonderful feeling, feeling this way!
Mister Bluebird’s on my shoulder
It is the truth, it’s “actch’ll”, hm?
Where is that bluebird?
Everything is “satisfactch’ll”
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay
Wonderful feeling, wonderful day!
