Song Lyric Sunday 7th September 2019.

Hi it’s Sunday again and time once more for Song Lyric Sunday. Our host Jim Adams has set us the prompt of: Bird/Fly/Sky/Wing.

My first thought was Gorge Harrison, my favourite Beatle taking the lead with his song Blue Jay Way. I do believe that is where he stayed for a while in the Hollywood Hills.

“Blue Jay Way”
Written by George Harrison.

There’s a fog upon L.A.,
And my friends have lost their way.
“We’ll be over soon,” they said.
Now they’ve lost themselves instead

Please don’t be long
Please don’t you be very long
Please don’t be long for I may be asleep

Well, it only goes to show
And I told them where to go
Ask a policeman on the street
There’s so many there to meet

Please don’t be long
Please don’t you be very long
Please don’t be long for I may be asleep

Now it’s past my bed I know
And I’d really like to go
Soon will be the break of day
Sitting here in Blue Jay Way

Please don’t be long
Please don’t you be very long
Please don’t be long for I may be asleep

Please don’t be long
Please don’t you be very long
Please don’t be long

Please don’t be long
Please don’t you be very long
Please don’t be long

Please don’t be long
Please don’t you be very long
Please don’t be long

Don’t be long, don’t be long, don’t be long
Don’t be long, don’t be long, don’t be long
Lyrics from A to Z Lyrics

And of course Spread your Wings by Queen . lyrics in the Video.
