365 Day Blog challenge Day 39 – Funny Girl #365daychallenge

I often get song lyrics stuck in my head and if I have a look at the lyrics I can usually tie them into something going on in my life at the time. I’ve never seen the film this song came from, it’s not on any of my playlists yet randomly starting playing on Spotify the other day and now I can’t get it out of my head. It’s there when I wake up and other seemingly random moments. I think I rain on my own parade. I think it’s telling to stop doing that to myself. I already spoke in other blogs about taking charge of my life and becoming less invisible. I think then that’s where the link is. Who knows – it’s not as clear cut as some songs but I’ll be paying some more attention to the lyrics over the coming weeks. And in the meantime I’ll be belting out my best Barbara Streisand impression…

Don’t rain on my parade (from the movie Funny Girl)

Don’t tell me not to live
Just sit and putter
Life’s candy and the sun’s
A ball of butter
Don’t bring around a cloud
To rain on my parade
Don’t tell me not to fly
I’ve simply got to
If someone takes a spill
It’s me and not you
Who told you you’re allowed
To rain on my parade!
I’ll march my band out
I’ll beat my drum
And if I’m fanned out
Your turn at bat, sir
At least I didn’t fake it
Hat, sir, I guess I didn’t make it!
But whether I’m the rose
Of sheer perfection
Or freckle on the nose
Of life’s complexion
The cinder or the shiny apple of its eye
I gotta fly once
I gotta try once
Only can die once, right, sir?
Ooh, life is juicy
Juicy, and you see
I gotta have my bite, sir!
Get ready for me, love
Cause I’m a “comer”
I simply gotta march
My heart’s a drummer
Don’t bring
