At the Drop of a Hat Revisited

Here’s a song using our latest Idiom of the Week – the lyrics are below:

“Bob Dylan’s Dream”

Bob Dylan

While riding on a train goin’ west

I fell asleep for to take my rest

I dreamed a dream that made me sad

Concerning myself and the first few friends I had

 

With half-damp eyes I stared to the room

Where my friends and I’d spent many an afternoon

Where we together weathered many a storm

Laughin’ and singin’ till the early hours of the morn

 

By the old wooden stove where our hats was hung

Our words were told, our songs were sung

Where we longed for nothin’ and were satisfied

Jokin’ and talkin’ about the world outside

 

With hungry hearts through the heat and cold

We never much thought we could get very old

We thought we could sit forever in fun

But our chances really was a million to one

 

As easy it was to tell black from white

It was all that easy to tell wrong from right

And our choices they was few so the thought never hit

That the one road we traveled would ever shatter and split

 

How many a year has passed and gone?

Many a gamble has been lost and won

And many a road taken by many a first friend

And each one I’ve never seen again

 

I wish, I wish, I wish in vain

That we could sit simply in that room again

Ten thousand dollars at the drop of a hat

I’d give it all gladly if our lives could be like that

Hit the Hay Again

Here’s a song featuring our latest Idiom of the Week:

Hit the Hay

NRBQ

Hit the hay

I’ve been working all day

Hit the hay

What do you say?

Hit the hay, hit the hay

 

Oh, I’m tired

Let me tell you, Jack

I’m so tired

Oh, my aching back

 

Let’s hit the hay

I’ve been working all day

Hit the hay

What do you say?

Hit the hay, hit the hay

 

Oh, I’m tired

Boys, I’m really beat

I’m so tired

Oh, my aching feet

 

Let’s hit the hay

I’ve been working all day

Hit the hay

I earned my pay

Hit the hay, hit the hay

Hit the hay, hit the hay…

 

Hit the Road, Jack!

Here’s a song by Ray Charles using our latest Idiom of the Week – Enjoy!

Hit the Road, Jack
Ray Charles

Hit the road Jack and don’t you come back

No more, no more, no more, no more

Hit the road Jack and don’t you come back

No more

What’d you say?

 

Hit the road Jack and don’t you come back

No more, no more, no more, no more

Hit the road Jack and don’t you come back

No more

 

Oh woman, oh woman, don’t treat me so mean

You’re the meanest old woman that I’ve ever seen

I guess if you say so

I’ll have to pack my things and go (that’s right)

 

Hit the road Jack and don’t you come back

No more, no more, no more, no more

Hit the road Jack and don’t you come back

No more

What’d you say?

 

Hit the road Jack and don’t you come back

No more, no more, no more, no more

Hit the road Jack and don’t you come back

No more

Now baby, listen baby, don’t you treat me this way

‘Cause I’ll be back on my feet someday

Don’t care if you do, ’cause it’s understood

You ain’t got no money, you just ain’t no good

 

Well, I guess if you say so

I’ll have to pack my things and go (that’s right)

Hit the road Jack and don’t you come back

No more, no more, no more, no more

Hit the road Jack and don’t you come back

No more

What’d you say?

 

Hit the road Jack and don’t you come back

No more, no more, no more, no more

Hit the road Jack and don’t you come back

No more…

In Seventh Heaven Revisited

Listen to a song hearkening all the way from 1929 using our latest Idiom of the Week. The Lyrics are below:

 

I’m in Seventh Heaven

Duane Smith & His Band

I’m in the seventh heaven

It’s easy to guess, my baby said yes

I know I’ve just thrown a great big seven

And she was the prize, what lips and what eyes

 

She’s got all the stuff, got all the things

She thinks that I’m angel enough without the wings

And that’s why I’m in the seventh heaven, heaven

Having a heck of a time
