I Like!


I’ve never listened to the words of Sheryl Crow’s SOAK UP THE SUN.  Today, on the way home from work, they caught my attention. And I like them!

Soak Up The Sun lyrics

My friend the communist
Holds meetings in his RV
I can’t afford his gas
So I’m stuck here watching TV
I don’t have digital
I don’t have diddly squat
It’s not having what you want
It’s wanting what you’ve got

[CHORUS:]
I’m gonna soak up the sun
Gonna tell everyone
To lighten up (I’m gonna tell ’em that)
I’ve got no one to blame
For every time I feel lame

I’m looking up o I’m gonna soak up the sun
I’m gonna soak up the sun
I’ve got a crummy job
It don’t pay near enough
To buy the things it takes
To win me some of your love
Every time I turn around
I’m looking up, you’re looking down
Maybe something’s wrong with you
That makes you act the way you do
Maybe i am crazy too

[CHORUS]

I’m gonna soak up the sun
While it’s still free
I’m gonna soak up the sun
Before it goes out on me
Don’t have no master suite
I’m still the king of me
You have a fancy ride, but baby
I’m the one who has the key
Every time I turn around
I’m looking up, you’re looking down
Maybe something’s wrong with you
That makes you act the way you do
Maybe I am crazy too

[CHORUS]

I’m gonna soak up the sun
Got my 45 on
So I can rock on.

    Sheryl Crow is an underrated poet in my opinion. Her music is addictive; when you add lyrics like this it just makes for special art.

    I’ve always loved this song, too! And what a great theme for Thanksgiving. Soak up some sun and appreciate your life!

    Thanks for the reminder. 🙂

    Hope you have a wonderful holiday, my dear friend!
