Fun Monday #6 - Music

Julie of Ooh, A Shiny Pen is this weeks host. Our assignment is:

Music plays a vital role in most of our lives. It is everywhere. I want to hear the ONE song that is you. The song that whenever it is heard, you smile. I am not looking for the soundtrack of your life, just that one song. Your friends hear it and think of you. You can post the video, the lyrics, the wav file. However you want to post it is great.

This was really hard for me. Music is huge part of my life, but I'm not sure what would be my song...so, I'm going with the one that my kids tell me is sort of me and my mother-in-law. (the second verse is for her.)

Craig Morgans Tough.

She’s in the kitchen at the crack of dawn
Bacon’s on, coffee’s strong
Kids running wild, taking off their clothes
If she’s a nervous wreck, well it never shows
Takes one to football and one to dance
Hits the Y for aerobics class
Drops by the bank, stops at the store
Has on a smile when I walk through the door
The last to go to bed, she’ll be the first one up
And I thought I was tough

Chorus
She’s strong, pushes on, can’t slow her down
She can take anything life dishes out
There was a time Back before she was mine
When I thought I was tough

We sat there five years ago
The doctors let us know, the test showed
She’d have to fight to live, I broke down and cried
She held me and said it’s gonna be alright
She wore that wig to church
Pink ribbon pinned there on her shirt
No room for fear, full of faith
Hands held high singing Amazing Grace
Never once complained, refusing to give up
And I thought I was tough

Chorus
She’s strong, pushes on, can’t slow her down
She can take anything life dishes out
There was a time
Back before she was mine
When I thought I was tough

She’s a gentle word, the sweetest kiss
A velvet touch against my skin
I’ve seen her cry, I’ve seen her break
But in my eyes, she’ll always be strong
There was a timeBack before she was mine
When I thought I was tough

I'm sure some song will come on in the next few days, and I'll say OH YEAH, that should have been it. But this works for now.

I thought of it...this is what my family would say is my song.

I will have to go to youtube and find the first song. My dear friend her losing her battle with cancer right now and reading the lyrics reminded me of her...the second song was funny!!

Aww, I have never heard the first song. That is lovely!
The chorus of the 2nd song I have set as the ringtone for my Dad on my cell. He always used to sing it when I was growing up.

Oh my God, I remember that song. A radio station played it for 4 days straight and I never turned it off. My mom almost went mad.

I laughed so hard at that video! I am going to send it to my SIL, she says she is headed to the funny farm all the time!
