On and On

While playing around with iTunes this morning, I heard an oldie but a goodie --- Stephen Bishop's "On and On." You may not recognize this song by the lyrics, but I guarantee you you'd know it if you heard it.

I'm now 99 cents poorer, but I needed to hear "On and On" on a rainy Friday. What I always liked about this song is that even though the lyrics seems pretty sad, this song NEVER FAILS to put me in a good mood. I love the "Keep on smiling" sentiment behind this tune.

If you don't know "On and On," download it. You'll see what I mean.

It's also used in the soundtrack to a John Candy movie --- can't remember which one, either "Who's Harry Crumb?" or "Summer Rental."

I love the line about using a ladder to steal the stars and putting on Sinatra...been there a time or two.

Have a good weekend, y'all.

Down in Jamaica
They got lots of pretty women
Steal your money
Then they break your heart
Lonesome Sue, she's in love with ol' Sam
Take him from the fire into the frying pan

On and on
She just keeps on trying
And she smiles when she feels like crying
On and on, on and on, on and on

Poor ol' Jimmy
Sits alone in the moonlight
Saw his woman kiss another man
So he takes a ladder
Steals the stars from the sky
Puts on Sinatra and starts to cry

On and on
He just keeps on trying
And he smiles when he feels like crying
On and on, on and on, on and on

When the first time is the last time
It can make you feel so bad
But if you know it, show it
Hold on tight
Don't let her say goodnight

Got the sun on my shoulders
And my toes in the sand
My woman's left me for some other man
Aw, but I don't care
I'll just dream and stay tan
Toss up my heart to see where it lands

On and on
I just keep on trying
And I smile when I feel like dying
On and on, on and on, on and on

On and on, on and on, on and on
On and on, on and on, on and on
