Song Lyric Sunday Theme for 3/18/18

This week has been nuts.  I ended up with a huge project at work, so I’m working twelve hour days and weekends.  I’m posting this right before going into the office for probably an eight hour spell on a Saturday.  I love my day job, but sometimes it can be overwhelming.  One thing that helps with the stress and keeps me going is music.  I love music and I love sharing it with you guys.

It’s pretty bleak in my neck of the woods today.  Winter is on us in full force, even though everyone around me seems to think we should be having Spring.  The really dumb thing is that in between snow days, we have sixty degree days.  It makes for some pretty schizophrenic weather.  Not that the theme has anything much to do with today’s theme.  It’s more just the way it feels.

So, with that slightly macabre introduction, let’s get our thinking caps on, break out our playlists and get to work!  Our theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “shadow”.

As always, you can go your own way and post a song that has nothing to do with the prompt.  We’re all here sharing our love of music and lyrics, and most of all, having a great time!

If you would like to suggest a theme, I am open to suggestions.   Please either pop it in the comments or send me an email at

Here are the “rules”:

  • Post the lyrics to the song of your choice, whether it fits the theme or not
  • Please try to include the songwriter(s) – it’s a good idea to give credit where credit is due and it’s honestly just a simple Google search
  • Make sure you also credit the singer/band and provide a link to where you found the lyrics
  • Link to the YouTube video, or pull it into your post so others can listen to the song
  • Ping back to this post or my own Song Lyric Sunday post
  • Read at least one other person’s blog so we can all share new and fantastic music and create amazing new blogging friends in the process

Feel free to use the Song Lyric Sunday badge by copying it into your post or add it to your site to show you are participating.

  3. Damn lady, you REALLY made me have to think hard about this one. It was not easy and I had to grasp at a few straws and inject a secondary theme to make it fit that I ultimately came up with.

  17. I decided to go a bit different route this week, because of the major event that happened for me over the weekend. I have been working on a WWII exhibit for the last two years, and on Friday night we held a huge gala for all the people we interviewed for the project and their families. It was so amazing to be surrounded by the heroes of the past, both men and women. There was a one star general there who ended up being singled out for this song when it was sung, he was the bugler. All of this made me think of the shadows of the past, and how easy it is to forget the lessons taught by them. I know I have used this song before, but today I just don’t care…I hope you enjoy the Andrew Sisters sing “Boogie Woogie Bugled Boy of Company C”
    Written by Don Raye and Hughie Prince from Google

    He was a famous trumpet man from out Chicago way
    He had a boogie style that no one else could play
    He was the top man at his craft
    But then his number came up and he was gone with the draft
    He’s in the army now, a-blowin’ reveille
    He’s the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B
    They made him blow a bugle for his Uncle Sam
    It really brought him down because he couldn’t jam
    The captain seemed to understand
    Because the next day the cap’ went out and drafted a band
    And now the company jumps when he plays reveille
    He’s the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B
    A-toot, a-toot, a-toot-diddelyada-toot
    He blows it eight-to-the-bar, in boogie rhythm
    He can’t blow a note unless the bass and guitar is playin’ with ‘I’m
    He makes the company jump when he plays reveille
    He’s the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B
    He was our boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B
    And when he plays boogie woogie bugle he was buzy as a “bzzz” bee
    And when he plays he makes the company jump eight-to-the-bar
    He’s the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B
    Toot-toot-toot, toot-diddelyada, toot-diddelyada
    Toot, toot, he blows it eight-to-the-bar
    He can’t blow a note if the bass and guitar isn’t with ‘I’m
    A-a-a-and the company jumps when he plays reveille
    He’s the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B
    He puts the boys asleep with boogie every night
    And wakes ’em up the same way in the early bright
    They clap their hands and stamp their feet
    Because they know how he plays when someone gives him a beat
    He really breaks it up when he plays reveille
    He’s the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B
    Da-doo-da da-doo-da-da da
    Da-doo-da da-doo-da-da da
    Da-doo-da da-doo-da-da da
    Da-doo-da da-doo-da-da
    A-a-a-and the company jumps when he plays reveille
    He’s the boogie woogie bugle boy of Company B!

      • It depends on what you are looking for. If you want personal stories, most university libraries have an oral history program that focus on that time period, and most of those are available online. Research librarians are great for help in the research department, and can be found at any university library, and I assume at any local library as well.
