In earlier blogs, I mentioned songs that really lift my spirits: “It’s a Good Day” (Febuary 17, 2012) and “You Gotta Have Heart” (April 1, 2012) Once, I even suggested it be used in church. There are several songs that speak to me this way. As I think of them, I like to check them out on You Tube. There I can watch them be performed by the artists who first introduced them. The renditions I find there escalate my joy and bring back memories.
Here is another one. It is Sunday. This is on my heart today:
“Zip-a-dee-do-dah” music by Allie Wrubal, lyrics by Ray gilbert, performed by James Baskett in the movie “Song of the South.”
My, oh my, what a wonderful day
Plenty of sunshine headin’ my way
Mister Bluebird’s on my shoulder
It’s the truth, it’s actual
Ev’rything is satisfactual
Wonderful feeling, wonderful day, yes sir!
