A Song For My Mood #55: Ah! Je Veux Vivre from Romeo et Juliette

Ah! Je Veux Vivre

from Romeo et Juliette

Je veux vivre
Dans ce rêve qui m’enivre
Ce jour encore,
Douce flamme
Je te garde dans mon âme
Comme un trésor!
Je veux vivre, etc.
Cette ivresse de jeunesse
Ne dure, hêlas! qu’un jour!
Puis vient l’heure
Où l’on pleure.
Loin de l’hiver morose
Laisse moi, laisse moi sommeiller
Et respirer la rose,
Avant de l’effeuiller.
Ah! – Ah! – Ah!
Douce flamme!
Reste dans mon âme
Comme un doux trésor
Longtemps encore.
Ah! – Comme un trésor
Longtemps encore.

A Song For My Mood #54: Quando M’en Vo from La Boheme

Quando M’en Vo Soletta

from La Boheme

Quando men vo,
Quando men vo soletta per la via,
La gente sosta e mira.
E la bellezza mia tutta ricerca in me,
Ricerca in me da capo a pie.

Ed assaporo allor la bramosia sottil,
Che da gl’occhi traspira.
E dai palesi vezzi intender sa
Alle occulte belta.
Cosi l’effluvio del desio
Tutta ma’ggira.
Felice mi fa!
Felice mi fa!

E tu che sai,
Che memori e ti struggi,
Da me tanto rifuggi?
So ben: le angoscie tue non le vuoi dir,
Non le vuoi dir,
So ben ma ti senti morir!

A Song For My Mood #53: Strip Me by Natasha Beddingfield

Strip Me

by Natasha Beddingfield

 

Everyday I fight for
All my future somethings
A thousand little awards
I have to choose between
I could spend a lifetime
Earning things I don’t need
That’s like chasing rainbows
And coming home empty
And if you strip me,
Strip it all away
If you strip me,
What would you find
If you strip me,
Strip it all away
Ill be alright
Take what you want
Steal my pride
Build me up
Or cut me down to size
Shut me out
But I’ll just scream
Im only one voice in a million
But you aint taking that from me
Oh oh no you aint taking that from me x 4
I dont need a microphone
To say what I been thinking
My heart is like a loudspeaker
Thats always on eleven
And if you strip me,
Strip it all away

If you strip me,
What would you find
If you strip me,
Strip it all away
I’m still the same
Take what you want
Steal my pride
Build me up
Or cut me down to size
Shut me out
But I’ll just scream
Im only one voice in a million
But you aint taking that from me
Oh oh no you aint taking that from me
Cos when it all boils down
At the end of the day
Its what you do and say
That makes you who you are
Makes you think about,
Think about it
Doesn’t it
Sometimes all it takes is one voice
Take what you want
Steal my pride
Build me up
Or cut me down to size
Shut me out
But I’ll just scream
Im only one voice in a million
But you aint taking that from me
Oh oh no you aint taking that from me

A Song For My Mood #52: Are You That Somebody?

Are You That Somebody?

by Aaliyah

Boy, I been watching you like the hawk in the sky up high
and you are my prey
Boy,I promise you if we keep bumpin heads
I know that one of these days
We goin’ hook it up, while we talk on the phone
But see, I don’t know if that’s good
I been holding back this secret from you
I probably shouldn’t tell it…if I

If I let you know
You can’t tell nobody,
I’m talking ’bout nobody
Are you responsible?
Boy I gotta watch my back
“Cause I’m not just anybody”
Is it my go, is it your go?
Sometimes I’m goody-goody
Right now I’m naughty-naughty
Say yes or say no
Cause I really need somebody
Tell me are you that somebody?

Boy, won’t you pick me up at the park right now
Up the block, while everyone’s sleep, sleep, sleep?
Ill be waiting there with my trench, my Lugz, my hat
Just so I’m low key
If you tell word (go to sleep, you know that would be weak)
Oh boy, see I’m trusting you with my heart, my soul
I probably shouldn’t let ya…if I

If I let this go
You can’t tell nobody
I’m talkin’ bout nobody
I hope your responsible
Boy I gotta watch my back
“Cause I’m not just anybody”
Is it my go,is it your go?
Sometimes I’m goody-goody
Right now I’m naughty-naughty
Say yes or say no
Cause I really need somebody
Tell are you that somebody?
Cause I really need somebody
Tell me are you that somebody?

If I let this go,
You can’t tell nobody,
I’m talkin’ bout nobody.
Are you responsible?
Boy I gotta watch my back
“Cause I’m not just anybody”
Is it my go,is it your go?
Sometimes I’m goody-goody,
Right now I’m naughty-naughty.
Say yes or say no.
Cause I really need somebody,
Tell me are you that somebody?

You can’t tell nobody,
I’m talking about nobody.
I hope you’re responsible,
Boy I gotta watch my back
“Cause I’m not just anybody”
Is it my go, is it your go?
Sometimes I’m goody-goody
Right now I’m naughty-naughty
Say yes or say no
Cause I really need somebody
Tell me are you that somebody?

Is it my go, is it your go?
Sometimes I’m goody-goody
Right now I’m naughty-naughty
Cause I really need somebody
Tell me are you that somebody?

You can’t tell nobody,
I’m talkin bout nobody

A Song For My Mood #51: Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree

by Brenda Lee

Rocking around the Christmas Tree
at the Christmas party hop
Mistletoe hung where you can see
Ev’ry couple tries to stop

You will get a sentimental feeling
When you hear voices singing
“Let’s be jolly;
Deck the halls with boughs of holly”

Rocking around the Christmas Tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone’s dancing merrily
In a new old fashioned way

Rocking around the Christmas Tree
Let the Christmas Spirit ring
Later we’ll have some pumpkin pie
and we’ll do some caroling

You will get a sentimental feeling
When you hear voices singing
“Let’s be jolly;
Deck the halls with boughs of holly”
Rocking around the Christmas Tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone’s dancing merrily
In a new old fashioned way

A Song For My Mood #50: The Christmas Song

The Christmas Song

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like Eskimos

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know that Santa’s on his way
He’s loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother’s child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly

And so I’m offering this simple phrase
For kids from one to ninety two
Although its been said many times many ways
Merry Christmas to you

A Song For My Mood #49: Christmastime Is Here

Christmastime Is Here

from Charlie Brown Christmas

Christmas time is here,
happiness and cheer,
fun for all
that children call
their favorite time of year.

Snowflakes in the air,
carols everywhere,
olden times
and ancient rhymes
and love and dreams to share.

Sleigh bells in the air;
beauty every where;
yuletide
by the fireside
and joyful memories there.

Christmas time is here;
we’ll be drawing near;
oh that we
could always see
such spirit through the year
