Song Lyric Sunday 9th February

Jim’s theme for us this week is I/Me/Them/Us/You/We
https://jimadamsauthordotcom.wordpress.com/2020/02/08/personal-pronouns/
This is my choice for this week which includes You, Me, Us, and We.

Written by Kenny Ascher and Paul Williams, it was recorded by Helen Reddy for her 1974 album Love Song for Jeffrey.

The lyrics are in the clip, but here they are courtesy of genius.com

You and me against the world
Sometimes it feels like you and me against the world
When all the others turn their back and walk away
You can count on me to stay

Remember when the circus came to town
And you were frightened by the clown
Wasn’t it nice to be around
Someone that you knew
Someone who was big and strong
An lookin’ out for

You and me against the world
Sometimes it feels like you and me against the world
And for all the times we’ve cried
I always felt the odds were on our side
And when one of us is gone
And one is left alone to carry on
Then remembering will have to do
Our memories alone will get us through
Think about the days of me and you
Of you and me against the world

Life can be a circus
They underpay and overwork us
Though we seldom get our due
And when each day is through
I bring my tired body home
And look around for you

You and me against the world
It feels like you and me against the world
And for all the times we’ve cried
I’ve always felt that God was on our side
And when one of us is gone
And one is left alone to carry on
Then remembering will have to do
Memories alone will get us through
Think about the days of me and you
You and me against the world

 

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
