#atozchallenge – Zero

ZERO

Thirty days of April is when we accept the challenge

To write our very best though some days it’s hard

Many have a plan and others take each day as it comes

No matter the struggle we’re having fun

Every day the challenge is staring you in your face

You may get behind but don’t give up on the race

Wondering how can I get through this

So many things on my plate

Some how there is grace

Although they might be posted late

Amidst the hustle and bustle of the race

To complete your commitment

The A to Z challenge

Twenty-six out of a thirty-day pace

The next day is Zero

Though it is number one

Congrats to all the A to Z Challengers#

#atozchallenge – We All Praise YAH – James Vincent

We All Praise YAH – James Vincent

We all praise YAH during our times of trials

We all praise YAH our God

When seasons change

Faithful One you stay the same

We all praise YAH our God

For the One who was

And the One who is

For the One who’s coming again

We all praise YAH we all praise YAH

We all praise YAH our God

When the days grow dim

Surety of the life has passed

Into the hands of men like me

I will lift my eyes

For He is my Hope

And I will still praise

YAH my God

#atozchallenge – X Marks the Spot

X is the mark that decorates test or homework papers. X usually means there are wrong answers or assignments are not correct.

Red is the color of the dreaded X. The paper grader makes sure you see your mistakes with the bright red staring at you making it known.

No one wants big fat red X’s on their papers. Well, they need to study harder and pick the right answer.

NO MORE X’s, NO RED X’s!

#atozchallenge – Wade in the Water

Wade In The Water – Negro Spiritual

Wade in the water

Wade in the water, children,

Wade in the water

God’s a-going to trouble the water

See that host all dressed in white

God’s a-going to trouble the water

The leader looks like the Israelite

God’s a-going to trouble the water

See that band all dressed in red

God’s a-going to trouble the water

Looks like the band that Moses led

God’s a-going to trouble the water

Look over yonder, what do you see?

God’s a-going to trouble the water

The Holy Ghost a-coming on me

God’s a-going to trouble the water

If you don’t believe I’ve been redeemed

God’s a-going to trouble the water

Just follow me down to the Jordan’s stream

God’s a-going to trouble the water

#atozchallenge -“Viva Las Vegas”

 

“Viva Las Vegas”  Elvis Presley

Bright light city gonna set my soul

Gonna set my soul on fire

Got a whole lot of money that’s ready to burn,

So get those stakes up higher

There’s a thousand pretty women waitin’ out there

And they’re all livin’ the devil may care

And I’m just the devil with love to spare, so

Viva Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas

How I wish that there were more

Than the twenty-four hours in the day

Even if there were forty more

I wouldn’t sleep a minute away

Oh, there’s black jack and poker and the roulette wheel

A fortune won and lost on ev’ry deal

All you need’s a strong heart and a nerve of steel

Viva Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas

Viva Las Vegas with you neon flashin’

And your one arm bandits crashin’

All those hopes down the drain

Viva Las Vegas turnin’ day into nighttime

Turnin’ night into daytime

If you see it once

You’ll never be the same again

I’m gonna keep on the run

I’m gonna have me some fun

If it costs me my very last dime

If I wind up broke up well

I’ll always remember that I had a swingin’ time

I’m gonna give it ev’rything I’ve got

Lady luck please let the dice stay hot

Let me shoot a seven with ev’ry shot, ah

Viva Las Vegas, Viva Las Vegas,

Viva Las Vegas, viva, viva Las Vegas

Las Vegas here I come—to bowl in a tournament

#atozchallenge – Under The Boardwalk

Under the Boardwalk – The Drifters

Oh when the sun beats down and burns the tar up on the roof

And your shoes get so hot you wish your tired feet were fire proof

Under the boardwalk, down by the sea, yeah

On a blanket with my baby is where I’ll be

(Under the boardwalk) out of the sun

(Under the boardwalk) we’ll be havin’ some fun

(Under the boardwalk) people walking above

(Under the boardwalk) we’ll be falling in love

Under the boardwalk, boardwalk!

From the park you hear the happy sound of a carousel

Mm-mm, you can almost taste the hot dogs and French fries they sell

Under the boardwalk, down by the sea

On a blanket with my baby is where I’ll be

(Under the boardwalk) out of the sun

(Under the boardwalk) we’ll be havin’ some fun

(Under the boardwalk) people walking above

(Under the boardwalk) we’ll be making love

Under the boardwalk, boardwalk!

Ooh, under the boardwalk, down by the sea, yeah

On a blanket with my baby is where I’ll be

#atozchallenge – The Way You Do The Things You Do

The Way You Do The Things You Do – The Temptations

You got a smile so bright

You know you could have been a candle
I’m holding you so tight
You know you could have been a handle
The way you swept me off my feet
You know you could’ve been a broom
The way you smell so sweet
You know you could’ve been some perfume

Well you could’ve been anything that you wanted to
And I can tell
The way you do the things you do, ah baby (the way you do the thing you do, the way you do the things you do)

As pretty as you are
You know you could’ve been a flower
If good looks were minutes
You know that you could be an hour
The way you stole my heart
You know you could have been a crook
And baby your so smart
You know you could have been a school book

Well you could’ve been anything that you wanted to
And I can tell
The way you do the things you do, ah baby (the way you do the thing you do, the way you do the things you do)

You make my life so rich
You know you could’ve been some money
And baby you’re so sweet
You know you could have been some honey

Well you could’ve been anything that you wanted to
And I can tell
The way you do the things you do, ah baby (the way you do the thing you do, the way you do the things you do)

You really swept me off my feet (the way you do the things you do)
You made my life complete (the way you do the things you do)
You made my life so bright (the way you do the things you do)
You made me feel alright (the way you do the things you do)
You make me feel alright (the way you do the things you do)

This guy must really like the girl he’s singing to because he’s running it down to her.
