Stand by your man

When I sat up to type today, I was wondering if I should relate to Holi. There are many many songs on Holi.

I was listening to Anup Jalota’s ghazals last night and was wondering if I should type down the lyrics of a romantic Ghazal as a tribute to lovers who had all the Holi fun.

As for me, I am not playing with colours today, simply because I’m not used to it.
Except once in college when I got dragged into a pool of mud and got sprayed with colours, I’ve never known much of Holi.

As I’m not going to office today, I’ll be glad if I can fix the ID3 v2 tags of, say, a 100 songs and load it into my Yepp Player.

And it happened…
It happened as I was thinking and even as I was typing this blog…

I heard for the first time, a country love song by Wanda Jackson. Right after the first time, I decided that this is what I’m going to post today. Lyrics are a bit prosaic, alright.  It’s Wanda’s singing that make it a song. While the lyrics are not very rhyming, its the idea behind the song I liked.

I dont know of a woman these days who can write half as well to please a man.

I didnt have time to research the song. But I did find an interesting link to Wanda Jackson.
She’s kind of cute. How else would Elvis be dating her otherwise?

Some day, I’ll write my tribute to the Elvis, the king.

Lyrics to Standby your man

Sometimes it’s hard to be a woman
Giving all your love to just one man
You’ll have bad times, and he’ll have good times
Doin’ things that you don’t understand

But if you love him, you’ll forgive him
Even though he’s hard to understand
And if you love him, all be proud of him
Cause after all he’s just a man

Stand by your man
Give him two arms to cling to
And something warm to come to
When nights are cold and lonely

Stand by your man
And tell the world you love him
Keep giving all the love you can
Stand by your man

Stand by your man
And show the world you love him
Keep giving all the love you can
Stand by your man
