I've seen fire and I've seen rain 2

I’m going down. My nose is in the sand
I’m going down, down, baby. My nose is in the sand
A cloud of dust just came over me and I think I’m drowning on dry land.

Albert King

Now, don’t hang on
Nothin’ last forever but the earth and sky
It slips away
And all your money won’t another minute buy

Dust in the wind
All we are is dust in the wind


God only knows
God makes his plan
The information’s unavailable
To the mortal man
We work our jobs
Collect our pay
Believe we’re gliding down the highway
When in fact we’re slip slidin’ away

Paul Simon

But I’ve been walking through the night and the day
Till my eyes get weary and my head turns gray
And sometimes it seems maybe God’s gone away
Forgetting his promise and the word he’d say

And we’re lost out here in the stars

Sarah Vaughan

If we’d just be humble
Like the good Lord say, yeah
He promised to exalt us
But love is the way
That’s the way God planned it

Billy Preston

Love is a many-splendored thing
It’s the April rose that only grows in the early spring
Love is nature’s way of giving a reason to be living
The golden crown that makes a man a king

The Vogues

April in Paris, chestnuts in blossom
Holiday tables under the trees
April in Paris, this is a feeling
No one can ever reprise

Ella Fitzgerald

I’ve got sunshine on a cloudy day
When it’s cold outside
I’ve got the month of May
I guess you’d say
What can make me feel this way
My girl, my girl, my girl
Talkin’ 'bout my girl
My girl

The Temptations

She’s the kind of girl who puts you down
When friends are there
You feel a fool
When you say she’s looking good
She acts as if it’s understood
She’s cool, ooh, ooh, ooh
Girl, girl,…

Girl, The Beatles

Young girl, get out of my mind
My love for you is way out of line
Better run, girl,
You’re much too young, girl

Gary Puckett & the Union Gap

May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
May your song always be sung
And may you stay forever young
May you stay forever young

Twas in another lifetime, one of toil and blood
When blackness was a virtue the road was full of mud
I came in from the wilderness, a creature void of form
Come in, she said
I’ll give ya shelter from the storm
Bob Dylan

You told me that you’ll love me if I’d ever change
Welcome me enter your arms again
Come on in out of the rain, hey hey
There’s a place in your heart to love me again
Happiness and joy, you bring when you call my name
Come on in out of the rain

Wendy Moten

It’s a long, long road when you’re all alone
And a man like you will always choose the long way home
There’s no right or wrong, I’m not here to blame
I just wanna be the one who keeps you from the rain

Come In From the Rain – The Captain and Tennille

You and I share a love of weather, now you are beside me and we watch together
Bright and brave, safe, warm, at the end of a summer storm

Alison Krauss

(All summer long you’ve been with me)
I can’t see enough of you
(All summer long we’ve both been free)
Won’t be long til summer time is through
(Summer time is through)
Not for us now

The Beach Boys

Are you ready for the sunshine?
Are you ready for the birds and bees,
the apple trees,
and a whole lot of fooling around

I’d heard it before; just had to think where it came from. “Meatballs” w/Bill Murray, right?

in play:

And when our year has ended, And I have gone away
You’ll often speak about me And this is what you’ll say,
“We sang in the sunshine, You know, we laughed every da-a-ay.
We sang in the sunshine, Then she went on her way.”

We’ll Sing in the Sunshine – Gale Garnett

Work all night on a drink of rum
(Daylight come and we want go home)
Stack banana 'til the morning come
(Daylight come and we want go home)

Day-O - Harry Belafonte

Drinking all night
Got into a fight
Well I feel so broke up
I want to go home.

Sloop John B – The Beachboys
