Been working so hard
I’m punching my card
Eight hours for what?
Oh, tell me what I got
I’ve got this feeling
That time’s just holding me down
I’ll hit the ceiling
Or else I’ll tear up this townNow I gotta cut loose
Footloose, kick off the Sunday shoes
Please, Louise, pull me off of my knees
Jack, get back, come on before we crack
Lose your blues, everybody cut footlooseYou’re playing so cool, obeying every rule
Deep way down in your heart
You’re burning, yearning for the some-somebody to tell you
That life ain’t passing you by
I’m trying to tell you
It will if you don’t even tryYou’ll get by if you’d only cut loose
Footloose, kick off the Sunday shoes
Ooh-whee, Marie, shake it, shake it for me
Whoah, Milo come on, come on let’s go
Lose your blues, everybody cut footlooseYou got to turn me around
And put your feet on the ground
Gotta take the hold of allI’m turning loose, footloose, kick off the Sunday shoes
Please, Louise, pull me off of my knees
Jack, get back, come on before we crack
Lose your blues, everybody cut footlooseFootloose, kick off the Sunday shoes
Please, Louise, pull me off of my knees
Jack, get back, come on before we crack
Lose your blues, everybody cut, everybody cut
Everybody cut, everybody cut
Everybody cut, everybody cut
Everybody, everybody cut footloose

Sparrow

Artist: Simon & Garfunkel

Who will love a little Sparrow?
Who’s traveled far and cries for rest?
“Not I,” said the Oak Tree,
“I won’t share my branches with
no sparrow’s nest,
And my blanket of leaves won’t warm
her cold breast.”

Who will love a little Sparrow
And who will speak a kindly word?
“Not I,” said the Swan,
“The entire idea is utterly absurd,
I’d be laughed at and scorned if the
other Swans heard.”

Who will take pity in his heart,
And who will feed a starving sparrow?
“Not I,” said the Golden Wheat,
“I would if I could but I cannot I know,
I need all my grain to prosper and grow.”

Who will love a little Sparrow?
Will no one write her eulogy?
“I will,” said the Earth,
“For all I’ve created returns unto me,
From dust were ye made and dust ye shall be.”

Wilbur Smith

Movie Pick #1

#1 Dead Poets Society 1989 – the tragic story of a profeessor, ahead of his time, who tries and makes his students “suck the marrow out of life” by making them freethinkers.

“Truth, like a blanket that always leaves your feet cold.
You push it, stretch it, it will never be enough
Kick it beat it, it will never cover any of us.
From the moment we enter crying, to the moment we leave dying…”

Thus spake Todd Anderson in Dead Poet’s Society

I Will Always be Right There – Bryan Adams

Artist: Bryan Adams
source: azlyrics.com

I swear to you I will always be there for you
There’s nothin’ I won’t do
I promise you all my life I will live for you
We will make it through
Forever, we will be
Together you and me
Mm, when I hold you nothin’ can compare
With all of my heart you know I’ll always be
Right there
I believe in us, nothin’ else could ever mean so much
You’re the one I trust
Our time has come, we’re not two people
Now we are one, yeah, you’re second to none
Forever, we will be
Together, a family
The more I get to know ya, nothin’ can compare
With all of my heart you know I’ll always be
Right there
Forever we will be
Together, just you and me
The more I get to know ya, the more I really care
With all of my heart you know I’ll always be
And you know I really love ya, nothin’ can compare
For all of my life you know I’ll always be
Right there

Six Honest Serving-Men

Poet: Rudyard Kipling
Poem: I Keep Six Honest Serving Men
source: kiplingsociety.co.uk
curated by: Dr B Damodaran

I KEEP six honest serving-men
(They taught me all I knew);
Their names are What and Why and When
And How and Where and Who.
I send them over land and sea,
I send them east and west;
But after they have worked for me,
I give them all a rest.

I let them rest from nine till five,
For I am busy then,
As well as breakfast, lunch, and tea,
For they are hungry men.
But different folk have different views;
I know a person small—
She keeps ten million serving-men,
Who get no rest at all!

She sends’em abroad on her own affairs,
From the second she opens her eyes—
One million Hows, two million Wheres,
And seven million Whys!

Love Lifted Me – Kenny Rogers

source: azlyrics.com
youtube: 7XNrdRCIzxI

I’ll write myself a simple song
Get the whole world to sing along
I’ll call it a love song for you

And who knows
I’m liable to take a song from the Bible
And then when I’m through, I’ll just sing

Love lifted me, love lifted me
When nothing else would do
You know love lifted me

Everybody’s looking for a way
To say something nobody said
But that’s hard to do

They’re searching their mind
Trying to find the one of a kind way
That they could say something new and I just say

Love lifted me, love lifted me
When I was down and out
You know love lifted me

Love lifted me, love lifted me
When nothing else would do
You know love lifted me

Love lifted me, love lifted me
When nothing else would do
You know love lifted me

Love lifted me, love lifted me
When I was down and out
You know love lifted me

Everybody sing love lifted me
Oh, love lifted me
