Song Lyric Sunday 7th February

Welcome to Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday challenge.
Last week we had Divided Exactly By 2, with the prompt of Even/Odd. This week we have the prompt Colors and the song that you choose must contain a color in either the title or the lyrics.
I used My Colouring Book by Dusty Springfield way back in March 2019 for Jim’s theme of school/ books/learning. Surprisingly when I chose it, it was not the one I was thinking of which bore a totally different title, and I had become confused by an album of the same name by Agnetha Fältskog which included the track in mind.
So, as things tend to go full circle sometimes, I can use it today!

If I Thought You’d Ever Change Your Mind” is a song that was originally performed by Edwards Hand, written by John Cameron.

In 1969, it was recorded by Cilla Black, produced by George Martin and her version reached Number 20 in the UK charts and Number 19 in Ireland.

In 1970, Sammy Babitzin recorded a cover version in Finnish.

In 2004, it was covered by Agnetha Fältskog of ABBA and was the first single from her ninth solo album, and her first single release in 17 years. Her recording reached number two in Sweden and number eleven in the UK, selling a total of 21,000 copies, 11,000 of those in the first week. It became her highest charting single in the UK since her English solo recording career commenced in 1983.

I would bring you flowers in the morning
Wild roses as the sun begins to shine
Sweet perfume in tiny jeweled caskets
If I thought you’d ever change your mind

I would take you where the music’s sweetest
And feed you winter fruits and summer wine
Show you things you’ve only read in story books
If I thought you’d ever change your mind

I would bring you happiness
Wrapped up in a box and tied with a yellow bow
I would bring you summer rain and rainbow skies to make your garden grow
And in the winter snow my songs would keep you from the cold

But what use of flowers in the morning
When the garden they should grow in is not mine
And what use is sunshine if I’m crying
And my falling tears are mingled with the wine

I would bring you happiness
Wrapped up in a box and tied with a yellow bow
I would bring you rainbow skies
And summer rain to make your garden grow
And in the winter snow, my songs would keep you from the cold

I would bring you flowers in the morning
Wild roses when the sun begins to shine
Winter fruits and summer wine
Sweet perfume and columbine
If I thought you’d ever change your mind
If I thought you’d ever change your mind

 

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
