"Sing It Now" Week #42 (Lyrics)

 “Sing It Now”
Words and music by Susan Busatti Giangano

I was waiting in a cold chair in a cold room. Didn’t want to be there
There was an older man (struggling) in a wheelchair
Working so hard just to breathe

Asked him if he was o.k.
He said that he used to play
Jazz piano and the bass
“I was humming an old song” he said
Then smiled (so) sweet and strong
In a moment he was young

SING Sing it now
SING sing out loud…

It’s your own life. Take your time now
Take a walk without sleepin’ like a lion
It is your world. Why do you close your eyes?
Why do we close our eyes?

Asked him if he was o.k.
He said, “You know, I used to play
In the army band… piano and the bass
Asked him if he missed his songs
“I’m 93”, he said “…and no, I play each and every day

SING Sing it now
SING sing out loud…
