Stevie Wonder - Living for the City


A boy is born in hard time Mississippi
Surrounded by four walls that ain't so pretty
His parents give him love and affection
To keep him strong moving in the right direction
Living just enough, just enough for the city...ee ha!
His father works some days for fourteen hours
And you can bet he barely makes a dollar
His mother goes to scrub the floors for many
And you'd best believe she hardly gets a penny
Living just enough, just enough for the city... yeah!
His sister's black but she is sho'nuff pretty
Her skirt is short but Lord her legs are sturdy
To walk to school she's got to get up early
Her clothes are old but never are they dirty
Living just enough, just enough for the city...um hum
Her brother's smart he's got more sense than many
His patience's long but soon he won't have any
To find a job is like a haystack needle
Cause where he lives they don't use colored people
Living just enough, just enough for the city...
Living just enough...
For the city... ooh, ooh
(Repeat several times)
His hair is long, his feet are hard and gritty
He spends his life walking the streets of New York City
He's almost dead from breathing in air pollution
He tried to vote but to him there's no solution
Living just enough, just enough for the city...
yeah, yeah, yeah!
I hope you hear inside my voice of sorrow
And that it motivates you to make a better tomorrow
This place is cruel no where could be much colder
If we don't change the world will soon be over
Living just enough, stop giving just enough for the city!!!!
La, La, La, La, La, La,
Da Ba Da Da Da Da Da Da
Da Da Da Da Da Da
Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Da Da
(Repeat to end)

Bon Jovi - Wanted Dead Or Alive


Lyrics to Wanted Dead Or Alive : [recorded instrumentally by john petrucci for a student, before ] [images and words was released. chris collins, one of dream ] [theater's earliest vocalists got a hold of the tape and decided ] [to add some vocals of his own to the background music. ] [lines in {} are the "extra" lyrics. ] - jon bon jovi and richie sambora (bon jovi - from the album "slippery when wet")

It's all the same, only the names will change Everyday it seems we're wasted away Another place where the faces are so cold I drive all night Just to {...a wise ass} get back home

I'm a cowboy, on a steel horse i ride {i ride} {uh, wanted} i'm wanted {yah! dead or alive} dead or alive Wanted dead or alive {yah! this song sucks}

{...man this has got to be boring} Sometimes i sleep {uh oh, here we go again}, Sometimes it's not {man, give it a rest} for days And people {you suck} i meet always go their separate ways Sometimes i tell the day By the bottle that you drink And times when you're alone {i told ya you suck} all you do is think

Cause i'm a cowboy {no you're a dick}, On a steel horse i ride {bah} I'm wanted {yah!} dead or alive Wanted {wanted} dead or alive

{...uh check out that, check out that that...} {check out this... }

Cause i'm a cowboy, On a steel horse i ride {yeah ride this you faggot} I'm wanted dead or alive {yeah, gimme a gun i'll fuckin shoot you}

Well i walk the streets {what are you a prostitute?}, A loaded six string on my back {yeah i bet you got something else on your back} I play for keeps {yah!}, 'cause i might not make it back {make it back} I been everywhere {everywhere}, Still i'm standing tall {standing tall, yeah yeah} I've seen a million faces And i've rocked them all {yeah i'll fuckin rock you, you dick}

I'm a cowboy {...a cowboy}, on a steel horse i ride {...i'll steel horse your lucky faggot} I'm wanted {wanted} dead or alive {dead or alive} Cause i'm a cowboy {cowboy}, I got the night on my side {night on my side} I'm wanted {wanted} dead or alive, and all right {yeah!} Dead or alive Still i try {don't try me man} Dead or alive {alive} Dead or alive {john man give me a gun} dead or alive Dead or alive, yeah {yeah}

Call me crazy but I believe this song helped start changing the national mood from Jimmy Carter’s malaise to optimism that culminated in Ronald Reagan’s “Morning in America.”

Faulty Thinking

June 1, 2012

Four people—a pilot, a professor, a pastor, and a hiker—were flying in a small plane when the engines died. The pilot said, “There are only three parachutes. Since this is my plane, I’m taking one of them.” He put it on and jumped out. The professor said, “I’m brilliant and the world needs me, so I’m taking a parachute,” and he jumped out.

Then the pastor told the hiker, “I don’t want to be selfish, so you take the last parachute.” The hiker replied, “There are still two left, so we can each have one. The professor jumped out with my backpack instead of the parachute!” Though the professor thought he would land safely, his assurance was based on faulty thinking.

Some people have an assurance of salvation based on faulty thinking. They believe that church attendance, baptism, or just being good will gain them approval from God. But our thinking is faulty if it isn’t based on what God says in His Word. God says that “all have sinned” and that we are His enemies. But through the death and resurrection of His Son, we can be made right with God (Rom. 3:23; 5:8-10). By faith in what Christ has done, we can have peace with God (5:1) and the assurance of eternal life in heaven.

Do you believe it? Your eternity is at stake. Don’t trust faulty thinking but put your faith in Christ.

I am trusting Thee, Lord Jesus—
Trusting only Thee;
Trusting Thee for full salvation,
Great and free. —Havergal
If we could earn our salvation, Christ would not have died to provide it.

Read: Romans 5:12-21

God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us. —Romans 5:8
Bible in a Year:
Psalms 19-21

Pop music had become very depressing back then, for example Aerosmith’s, “Dream On”, that Disco came out of nowhere and although dissed today was a breath of fresh air.
