Unwinding Song Lyrics
Over January we are having a deliberate down time as we focus on resting and abiding in Jesus at the beginning of a new year. I came across these alternative lyrics to popular songs on the www.fastcompany.com website. Enjoy:
(Tune of “I will survive")
at First I was afraid, I was petrified
Kept thinking I would be confused without my nine to five
But then my wife explained to me that if we don’t take a break
Then the next time she would see me it would be at my own wake
So now I’m gone, I’m out the door
I took a week off, and I’m not working anymore
Yes, I’m the one who can’t sit still for minute one
But gosh darn it I will do it, I will lie down in the sun
And close my mind
I will unwind
Oh, as long as I know how to rest I might even recline
I’ve got all this week ahead
If it kills me I’ll stay in bed
I will unwind!
I will unwind! Hey, hey….
IMAGINE (to the tune of "Imagine")
Imagine there’s no deadlines
It’s easy if you try
No boss above us
To yell and make us cry
Imagine all the people
Driving fifty-five…I, I, I….
Imagine multi- tasking
Is no longer required
No e-mails in your in-box
You go home when you’re tired
Imagine no one caring
About that Power Point….you, hoo-hoo
You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m working on a hunch
I think some day you’ll join us
And the world will be at lunch
And finally, as a tribute to Allan Sherman, here’s Ponchielli (or “Hello Muddah, Hello Faddah”)
Hello daughter, lovely daughter
Do you still like Harry Potter?
Or is Sponge Bob to your liking?
Maybe Dora the Explorer and her hiking.
See the point is, I’ve forgotten
As a parent, I am rotten
Presentations, dinner meetings
I am never home and I deserve some beatings
But I promise, if you’ll let me
I’ll make sure you don’t forget me
Cause I love you and I won’t spoil it
I have flushed my phone and Bluetooth down the toilet!
