Count Your Blessings Revisited

Here’s a classic Eighties tune for you using last week’s idiom. Enjoy!

Count Your Blessings

by Ashford & Simpson

I had to learn, learn a lesson
Never forget to count my blessings
I had to learn, learn a lesson
Never forget to count your blessings

You can’t say
I love you too many times
Simple things mean so much
Like when was the last touch
When was the last kiss
When did you hold them like this

I almost lost the one I love
Searching ’round for something new
Before you make the same mistake
Let me pass this on to you

I had to learn, learn a lesson
Never forget to count my blessings
I had to learn, learn a lesson
Never forget to count your blessings

Though they don’t complain
Doesn’t mean that there’s no pain
To forget is the worst
So always put them first
Thinking of their needs
Make them the one you please

I almost lost the one I love
Searching ’round for something new
Before you make the same mistake
Let me pass this on to you

If you don’t see eye to eye
Come close to saying goodbye
Think how far you’ve come
The victories you’ve won
What’s kept you through the years
Was to dry each other’s tears
Memories you recall
Lets you know you have it all

I almost lost the one I love
Searching ’round for something new
Before you make the same mistake
Let me pass this on to you

I had to learn, learn a lesson
Never forget to count your blessings
I had to learn, learn a lesson
Never forget…

    This is a wonderful song! I was deeply touched by what they sang.
