Just Sing, Sing A Song

Not quite a week has passed since Thanksgiving; and the past holiday was spent eating lots of food, resting, relaxing and spending time with my family.

There were no Black Friday sales for me last Friday – I left that up to others.

There were no movies this past weekend – too many people out and about.

Today another Tuesday and the week after Thanksgiving and all is calm, peaceful, and easy.

Several weeks ago, fellow blogger and friend Brooke over at theutopiauniverse published a post ‘SATURDAY’, that I felt appropriate for today; Tuesday.

When I read the post, for some reason it reminded me of the song ‘Sing’ by ‘The Carpenters’.

The lyrics and tune are simple and I think sometimes it would be nice if life was the same – simple.

But sometimes this time of year with the holidays – life is all but simple.

When I read Brooke’s post several weeks ago, I thought it simple – she took simple words and reminded us all to do something simple –

Don’t Forget To Live

Thank you, Brooke, for the reminder, I appreciate it very much.  For those readers unfamiliar with Brooke’s blog, please take a visit to her site theutopiauniverse.

The ending lyrics to the song ‘Sing’ by The Carpenters are –

Sing, sing a song

Make it simple to last

Your whole life long

Don’t worry that it’s not

Good enough for anyone

Else to hear

Just sing, sing a song.

If today you are working, resting, relaxing, shopping, seeing a movie or something else.  Remember what Brooke tells us –

Don’t Forget To Live

Let’s also not forget what The Carpenters sang 43 years ago –

Sing, sing a song.

Make it simple to last

Your whole life long

  1. I’m about to check out theutopiauniverse for myself but first I must acknowledge that I love the Carpenters and I do love that song not just for the melody and Karen’s crystal-velvet voice but also the lyrics. It has a very good point. And I think we need to embrace it!

  2. It has been a very very long time since I have heard this song. I find it quite soothing, and a definite message. Life is busy these days but one thing is for sure, a person does have some form of control. Some people thrive in the busy life, but simple sounds good to me right now. Have a beautiful day 🙂

  3. I am wincing because I want to like your post, which I do, I like its message, but I’m really sorry, I really really don’t like the sugary, sentimental Carpenters (I know she died tragically young, but this is about their music and their appearance not her life). I am pleased however that you are back and blogging and looking forward 😊

  4. I believe Karen Carpenter had one of the most beautiful voices of all time. A perfect alto , who could deliver a song with so much emotion and warmth. I was just listening to “Merry Christmas , Darling”, one of my all time favorites. I loved your post. – Lola 🌺
