Hey y’all…happy Sunday!

Thought I’d give a little backstory to SUNDAY’S SONG. The idea of posting lyrics and songs is obviously not a new one and certainly not something unique to me. But, I’ve always felt like music is my escape, I find comfort in the melody, the words and more importantly, a song is like a mini book. I mean, great songs tell a story, have meaning or a message. I’ve always wanted to find a way to incorporate some of my favorite songs into my blog because…well, I can! 😉 And if you go back to some of my very first FRIDAY FAVES posts, you’ll see some with songs in the post!

Anyway, like I said, I’m not an innovator or anything. I’m just a stay at home mama looking for ways to keep my mind occupied (my own mama suffers from Alzheimer’s, like her mama before her). But if you want to join in, if you want to share some of YOUR favorite songs, post some lyrics and maybe a link to YouTube and then link back to me! Easy peasy!💕

Ok, so today’s song comes from one of my most beloved artists. I remember dancing to his songs back in the 80’s and my mama HATED his music, she said it was not appropriate for kids, LOL!😁 Unfortunately, the artist known as Prince passed away on April 21, 2016. But his memory lives on!💜 So here’s one of my faves!

Raspberry Beret

I was working part time in a five-and-dime
My boss was Mr. Mcgee
He told me several times that he didn’t like my kind
‘Cause I was a bit 2 leisurely

I was always busy doing something close 2 nothing
But different than the day before
That’s when I saw her, ooh, I saw her
She walked in through the out door, out door

She wore a
Raspberry beret
The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
And if it was warm she wouldn’t wear much more
Raspberry beret
I think I love her

Built like she was
She had the nerve to ask me
If I meant 2todo her any harm

So, look here
I put her on the back of my bike
And-a we went riding
Down by old man Johnson’s farm

Now rainy days never turned me on
But something about the clouds and her mixed

She wasn’t too bright
But I could tell when she kissed me
I knew she knew how to get her kicks

Raspberry beret
The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
And if it was warm she wouldn’t wear much more
Raspberry beret
I think I love her

Raspberry beret
The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
And if it was warm she wouldn’t wear much more
Raspberry beret
I think I love her

Raspberry beret
The kind you find in a second hand store
Raspberry beret
