This week Jim Adams has prompted us with Couple/Together/Us for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday.
As some of you know or maybe you don’t, Frank and I have been together 15 years and just celebrated our 3rd wedding anniversary. I needed to give you a song that represents us. I usually stay in the Country genre, but have been known to color outside the lines. Today I pay homage to my Rock n’ Roll husband with “Happy Together” by The Turtles. The lyrics really speak volumes of our relationship.
The Turtles were an American rock band that included lead vocalists Howard Kaylan and Mark Volman, later known as Flo & Eddie. Other band members included Al Nichol, Chip Douglas, John Barbata and Jim Tucker. The band broke up in 1970.
Imagine me and you, I do I think about you day and night, it's only right To think about the girl you love and hold her tight So happy together If I should call you up, invest a dime And you say you belong to me and ease my mind Imagine how the world could be, so very fine So happy together I can't see me lovin' nobody but you For all my life When you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue For all my life Me and you and you and me No matter how they toss the dice, it had to be The only one for me is you, and you for me So happy together I can't see me lovin' nobody but you For all my life When you're with me, baby the skies'll be blue For all my life Me and you and you and me No matter how they toss the dice, it had to be The only one for me is you, and you for me So happy together Ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba Ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba Me and you and you and me No matter how they toss the dice, it had to be The only one for me is you, and you for me So happy together So happy together How is the weather So happy together We're happy together So happy together Happy together So happy together So happy together (ba-ba-ba-ba ba-ba-ba-ba) Source: LyricFind Songwriters: Alan Gordon / Garry Bonner Happy Together lyrics © Round Hill Music Big Loud Songs, BMG Rights Management, Carlin America Inc, Universal Music Publishing Group
