Joyful Sound (19/365)

Joyful Sound - The String Cheese Incident: Alright since Lent is here, thought I'd share some spiritual music with you. Wish this was on YouTube or I was hip enough to know how serve up a sound byte. I promise I'll listen to it daily during Lent. Promise you wont tell Mike.

Take time to give thanks 
Make time to be given 
I’m going to stop and think twice 
About the way that I'm living 
Did I say a kind word 
Am I proud of my actions 
You know a job well done 
Gives me satisfaction
Can I earn your trust 
Your love and affection 
Just one step at a time 
In the right direction 
Going to aim for the sky 
Keep my feet on the ground 
Raise my voice to the heavens 
Make a joyful sound 
Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Naaaaaaa.... 
Make a joyful sound
Can I sing for my supper 
And play for my rent 
I know it sounds funny 
But it's how my time's spent
Greet everyday with full purpose 
With passion and pride 
I’m going to follow my heart 
And have nothing to hide
A moment of insight 
I know why I'm here 
You know when the time just stops 
See it all real clear 
I’ve got to set an example 
Make some mischief and fun 
Do unto others and 
Play a fat bass run
Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Naaaaaaa.... 
Make a joyful sound  I got to work hard everyday 
And give it my best 
Grab hold of fear and negativity 
And lay them to rest 
I know my time here's important 
Can I do the right thing?
Practice patience and forgiveness 
Feel the joy that they bring
Can I lay down tonight 
Without feeling regret?
I know the love that I give 
Becomes the love that I get 
Well do you hear what I'm saying 
Making sense to you? 
Well if you feel it in your heart 
Then you might want to sing too
Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Naaaaaaa.... 
Make a joyful sound
I don't want to sound preachy 
Make you feel all wrong 
Just want to write some kind lyrics 
Sing a feel good song
It's kind of hard to explain 
It is just a feeling I get 
From making music making love 
Getting both feet wet 
Well every piece to the puzzle 
Snapped tight to the groove 
I Close my eyes breathe deeply and 
Let my feet move
You know I feel a little better
Now for speaking my mind 
Good vibes in circulation and 
See who they find 
Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Naaaaaaa....
Make a joyful sound

On that note, I'll head off to my yoga class, already in a better frame of mind... (hey, the letters I have to type in are "holigob").

I found a live mp3 of it here:

Wow BO that was cool.
Anyone wanting to listen you have to click past where it says "page not found" and then once on the archive page found Joyful Sound. A litle bit of work but well worth it.

That's so weird. All this time I've been thinking that you're Otter, using another pseudonym. I really am slow to catch on...

lolololo said...

Helen, Otter is not a pseudonym, it's like Coke, it's the real thing.
BO is my nephew. See I'm LO and he's BO. Ho Ho Ho.
