Thankful For Family and Friends: A Week of Thanksgiving Continues

    Like most people, I suppose, I am very grateful for my family and friends. Where would we be, and even, WHOM would we be, if it weren't for our family and friends. We are shaped and molded and helped along by our family and friends from the moment we are born until we die. We laugh together, and we cry together. We face the world together: sharing joys and concerns, solving problems, encouraging one another, lifting one another's spirits, comforting one another, and very simply caring for one another and about each other.

    The three songs I am posting today are with great gratitude to my family and friends as I continue this week of Thanksgiving. Thank you to those who I have shared so many memories with, thank you to those who have loved me and have allowed me to love them in return, and thank you to all those who have been my friend,whether we have shared only a moment or two or whether we have shared many. This expression of gratitude goes out to those I have met personally in my life, as well as, to all of my internet friends, both old and new, whom I know only through this computer. I am thankful for all of you. I feel very blessed to know you and to count you among those who care about me and whom I care about in return. Thank you for being there.





    Thanks For the Memory- Bob Hope (lyrics--These lyrics may differ slightly from the ones in the clip above. It became common for Bob Hope and his writers to change the lyrics of this song to fit the occasion, events of a show in which he was performing, and/or political nature of the time.)

    Thanks for the memory
    Of candlelight and wine, castles on the Rhine
    The Parthenon and moments on the Hudson River Line
    How lovely it was!

    Thanks for the memory
    Of rainy afternoons, swingy Harlem tunes
    And motor trips and burning lips and burning toast and prunes
    How lovely it was!

    Many's the time that we feasted
    And many's the time that we fasted
    Oh, well, it was swell while it lasted
    We did have fun and no harm done

    And thanks for the memory
    Of sunburns at the shore, nights in Singapore
    You might have been a headache but you never were a bore
    So thank you so much.

    Thanks for the memory
    Of sentimental verse, nothing in my purse
    And chuckles when the preacher said "For better or for worse"
    How lovely it was

    Thanks for the memory
    Of lingerie with lace, Pilsner by the case
    And how I jumped the day you trumped my one-and-only ace
    How lovely it was!

    We said goodbye with a highball
    Then I got as "high" as a steeple
    But we were intelligent people
    No tears, no fuss, Hooray! For us

    So, thanks for the memory
    And strictly entre-nous, darling how are you?
    And how are all the little dreams that never did come true?
    Aw'flly glad I met you, cheerio, and toodle-oo
    And thank you so much.






    Thank You For Loving Me- Bon Jovi (lyrics)

    It's hard for me to say the things
    I want to say sometimes
    There's no one here but you and me
    And that broken old street light
    Lock the doors
    We'll leave the world outside
    All I've got to give to you
    Are these five words tonight

    [Chorus:]
    Thank you for loving me
    For being my eyes
    When I couldn't see
    For parting my lips
    When I couldn't breathe
    Thank you for loving me
    Thank you for loving me

    I never knew I had a dream
    Until that dream was you
    When I look into your eyes
    The sky's a different blue
    Cross my heart
    I wear no disguise
    If I tried, you'd make believe
    That you believed my lies

    [Chorus:]
    Thank you for loving me
    For being my eyes
    When I couldn't see
    For parting my lips
    When I couldn't breathe
    Thank you for loving me

    You pick me up when I fall down
    You ring the bell before they count me out
    If I was drowning you would part the sea
    And risk your own life to rescue me

    [Solo]

    Lock the doors
    We'll leave the world outside
    All I've got to give to you
    Are these five words tonight

    [Chorus:]
    Thank you for loving me
    For being my eyes
    When I couldn't see
    You parted my lips
    When I couldn't breathe
    Thank you for loving me

    When I couldn't fly
    Oh, you gave me wings
    You parted my lips
    When I couldn't breathe
    Thank you for loving me



    Thank You For Being A Friend- Andrew Gold (lyrics)

    Thank you for being a friend
    Traveled down the road and back again
    your heart is true you're a pal and a confidant

    I'm not ashamed to say
    I hope it always will stay this way
    My hat is off, won't you stand up and take a bow

    And if you threw a party
    Invited everyone you knew
    You would see, the biggest gift would be from me
    and the card attached would say,
    Thank you for being a friend

    Thank you for being a friend
    Thank you for being a friend
    Thank you for being a friend

    If it's a car you lack
    I'd surely buy you a Cadillac
    Whatever you need, anytime of the day or night

    I'm not ashamed to say
    I hope it always will stay this way
    My hat is off, won't you stand up and take a bow

    And when we both get older
    With walking canes and hair of gray
    Have no fear, even though it's hard to hear
    I will stand real close and say,
    Thank you for being a friend

    (I want to thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend
    (I want to thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend
    (I want to thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend
    (I want to thank you)
    Let me tell you bout a friend
    (I want to thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend
    (I want to thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend
    (I want to thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend

    And when we die and float away
    Into the night, the Milky Way
    You'll hear me call, as we ascend
    I'll see you there, then once again
    Thank you for being a friend

    Thank you for being a friend
    (I want to thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend
    (I want to thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend
    (I want to thank you)
    Thank you for being a friend
    Whoa, tell you about a friend
    (Thank you right now, for being a friend)
    Thank you for being a friend
    (I wanna tell you right now, and tell you again)
    Thank you for being a friend
    (I wanna thank you, thank you, for being a friend)
    Thank you for being a friend
