SongLyricSunday 8/26/18–Theme-Plan

OK, very little to do with this week’s theme but I love this song, have been thinking about it a lot lately and it does have the word “plans” in it, so it should count, right??

It’s a great showcase piece for voice as well instrument, especially Knopfler’s guitar and that piano at the very end…).

Plus, it’s one of those hard-to-sit-still songs, so it can get you moving!

Enjoy!

 

 

Lyrics
This is us down at the mardi gras
This is us in your daddy’s car
You and the missing link
Yeah, I’d had a little too much to drink, now
Too long in the sun
Having too much fun
You and me and our memories
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
Rocking at the barbecue
Yeah, when we said I do
Hand jiving on the ballroom floor
You in that wedding coat you wore
And you in that amazing dress
I was stoned on love I guess
You and me, we were meant to be
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us on our honeymoon
In our hotel room
Sitting by the wishing well
Checking out of the love motel
Making plans for the sunshine state
Waiting at the terminal gate
You and me making history
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
And our baby boy
With our pride and joy
You at the sunday game
Standing next to what’s his name?
On our anniversary
With the family
You and me and our memories
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us
This is us

Thought a blog might help me develop better writing habits so I could finally finish my book, 16 years in the writing, but so far it's mostly photos and FUN!
