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

Speak of the Devil & Lonely Revisited

We’re killing two birds with one stone here by giving you a song that uses our latest Idiom of the Week and our latest Awesome Adjective. Listen and read the lyrics below!:

“Speak Of The Devil”

by Chris Isaak

Speak of the devil
The devil appears
Waiting for someone
Been waiting for years
And it’s alright now
Yeah, I’m alright now

Watching her walking
Like watching a flame
Trying to forget her
Don’t mention her name
And I’m alright now
Yeah, I’m alright now

Lonely days without her
Nights that would not end
As long as I don’t think about her
I can still pretend
It’s alright

Speak of the devil
The devil appears
Been waiting for someone
Lonely for years
But I’m alright now
Yeah, I’m alright now
It’s alright
It’s alright

Speak of the devil

Happy New Year’s

Here’s an old song that many sing for New Year’s. It’s called “Auld Lang Syne” – it’s Scottish English for “old long since,” or “long long ago,” “days gone by,” or “old times.”

The song was originally written as a poem by Robert Burns in 1788, and it was later put to music. Here are the lyrics:

Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And days of auld lang syne!

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne.
We’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.

Melancholy Man

by the Moody Blues

I’m a melancholy man, that’s what I am,
All the world surrounds me, and my ____1____ are on the ground.
I’m a very ____2____ man, doing what I can,
All the world astounds me and I think I understand
That we’re going to keep growing, wait and see.

When all the ____3____ are falling down
Into the sea and on the ground,
And angry voices carry on the wind,
A beam of light will fill your ____4____
And you’ll remember what’s been said
By all the good men this world’s ever known.

Another man is what you’ll see,
Who looks like you and looks like ____5____,
And yet somehow he will not feel the same,
His life caught up in misery, he doesn’t ____6____ like you and me,
‘Cause he can’t see what you and I can see.
