Song Lyric Sunday- Lights, Camera, Music 1/30/22- I’m Alright

This week the theme is songs featured in films that made the charts (please make sure you reference the movie). 

I’ve had a busy series of Sundays but found time today to join Jim’s prompt and it was one that called out to me.
This song is one of my all-time favorites! The beat makes me want to dance just like the little groundhog in the video. LOL
But most importantly, those lyrics speak to me and for me. It’s my ‘go to’ feel good choice all around. I consider it my own personal theme song. 😉

I had the pleasure of seeing Loggins and Messina in the gymnasium at Williams College in the very early 70s. You’ll never guess who else played that night. The immortal Jim Croce!

Of course, Caddyshack is an iconic American comedy that I can watch over and over and still laugh like I’m seeing it for the first time. [Disclaimer: The vomiting scene is my only complaint. (I can’t stomach it. 😉 ) Knowing when it’s about to happen, I usually take a bathroom break at that time. LOL]
Darn it. I feel the need to add a philosophical afterthought. It occurred to me that I don’t have to approve of or enjoy, a whole movie to appreciate my own perceived special parts. I do that with people too. IMHO- that’s the most inclusive and tolerant attitude.
Happy Sunday!


“I’m Alright”

I’m alright
Nobody worry ’bout me
Why you got to gimme a fight
Can’t you just let it be

I’m alright
Don’t nobody worry ’bout me
You got to gimme a fight
Why don’t you just let me be

Do what you like
Doing it nat’rally
But if it’s too easy
They’re gonna disagree

It’s your life
And isn’t it a mystery
If it’s nobody’s bus’ness
It’s everybody’s game

Gotta catch you later
No, no, cannonball it right away

Some Cinderella kid

Get it up and get you a job
(Dip, dip, dip, dip, dip, dip, dip, dip)

I’m alright
Nobody worry ’bout me
Why you got to gimme a fight
Can’t you just let it be

I’m alright
Don’t nobody worry ’bout me
You got to gimme a fight
Why don’t you just let me be

Who do you want
Who you gonna be today
And who is it really
Makin’ up your mind

You wanna listen to the man
Pay attention to the magistrate
And while I got you in the mood
Listen to your

Own heart beatin’
Own heart beatin’
Own heart beatin’
Own heart beatin’

Don’t it get you movin’

Mmmmm-man

It make me feel good

(Wow, Cinderella kid)

Then give it up and give it the job

(Dip, dip, dip, dip, dip, dip, dip, dip)
(Boom, boom, boom, boom)

I’m alright
Nobody worry ’bout me
Why you got to gimme a fight
Can’t you just let it be

I’m alright
Don’t nobody worry ’bout me
You got to gimme a fight
Why don’t you just let me be

I’m alright
Nobody worry ’bout me
Why you got to gimme a fight
Can’t you just let it be

I’m alright
I’m alright
I’m alright
Just let me be

I’m alright
I’m alright
I’m alright
Just let me be
(everybody let me be)

    Great song choice! And Wow! I would’ve loved to have seen Jim Croce! He was taken too early! I saw Eddie Money in the early 80s, in between Motley Crue and Def Leppard 😲 It was a good show, except for almost losing my clothes after almost being trampled… ah, but that’s another story😂😂

      Cool beans… except for the almost trampled part. Guess we can laugh about it now.🤣
      Eddie Money… Take Me Home Tonight… a firm fave!
      Thanks and nice to meet you.

Tell me something good...
