Song Lyric (Monday) 4/8/18- The City of Light

So I’m a day late with my Song Lyric Sunday submission due to NASCAR at Texas Motor Speedway this weekend. Sorry about that, I’ll get back on schedule next week for sure.

Alas, we were tasked with a song about light and this was the best my brain-dead self could come up with. This little song sung by abandoned appliances in search for their beloved master – making the long trek from the countryside to the city.

So with that I give you the song “The City of Light” as featured in the 1987 animated film The Brave Little Toaster (written by Van Dyke Parks):

Life is like a journey
On a road that’s within
Head says you should stay
But your heart says to begin
So you go

Blanky, Radio, Kirby: But you don’t want to go

Toaster: Any life worth living
Isn’t life just filled with ease
You just stay forgiving
Through the forest and the trees

Toaster, Lampy: And you’ll go
Just where you want to go

Toaster, Lampy, Radio, Blanky: Time fly by in the city of light
Time stands still in the country
There’s no time for a fuss and a fight
As we travel the land

Lampy, Radio: And I’d be
Satisfied
Just to be
Not denied

Toaster, Lampy, Radio: To reside
With some pride

Toaster, Lampy, Radio, Blanky: While I ride
To the City
The City of Light!

Lampy: Light shines like a diamond
In the City at night

Radio: When that diamond shines
You know that everything’s all right

Kirby: But you know
We got a way to go

Blanky: Let us meet the master
We don’t wanna make him wait

Lampy, Blanky:
You just keep a-knockin’

Toaster, Lampy, Radio, Blanky: He will open up the gate
To the City of Light

Lampy: Master is a man with a plan I can understand

Toaster: Master is a man of great reflection

Radio: Master is a man who lays his hand across the land

Blanky: Master is the man of our affection

All: Time side by in the city of light
Time stands still in the country
There’s no time for a fuss and a fight
As we travel the land

Lampy, Radio: And I’d be
Satisfied
Just to be
Not denied

All: To reside
With some pride
While I ride
To the City
The City of Light!

OK, a totally lame pick this week I know, but I’m still running on fumes. I’ll do better next week, I promise!
