The goal of our "Song Challenges" is to write songs/lyrics on demand within set parameters. We don't critique each other's songs in this thread (but you can say you like someone's song if you want to.) Please post your original works. If you have already written a song/lyric that fits within the parameters, please feel free to post it.

The theme of this challenge centers around gratitude. It could be about Thanksgiving or gratitude of any kind. However, it could also be the opposite - a tongue in cheek "Thanks a lot" sort of thing, No thanks. etc. Please make sure the song/lyrics contains the expression of gratitude (or the opposite) in the chorus or repeating line of the verse.

Have fun!

I saw this challenge and decided to rework this one. Thank you Jean for keeping these challenges going!

"Peace Is On Me Tonight" (c) 2011 by Dave Gill

Here's to the family holed up in a shelter
and to the soldier back from war who can no longer drive
Here's to the lovers who have argued for hours
but somehow still manage to keep love alive
I know that it may seem just as bad as it can be
But that don't mean we give up the fight
so just for a moment
Let's raise up our glasses
This round - is on me - tonight

Let's make a toast to
all that we can do
and all that we're hopin' to be
Forget for a moment
our ongoing battles
This round of Peace is on me

Here's to the white and the blue collared workers
who put in more hours than there are in a day
And here's one for all who give their life to help others
and the ones who believe in the power to pray
It's hard sometimes to keep from doin' the wrong thing
to work from the dark to the light
So pause for a moment
let's all raise our glasses
This round - is on me - tonight

Let's make a toast to
all that we can do
and all that we're hopin' to be
Forget for a moment
our ongoing battles
This round of Peace is on me

<interlude>


Here's to our families wherever they may be
We salute our Armed Forces all over the world
and cheers to the police and the fire department
and a special one for all of the bar-hoppin girls
Let's all remember we're in this together
Stop fussin' and do what is right
Here we're all equal
So raise up your glasses
This round - is on me - tonight

Let's make a toast to
all that we can do
and all that we're hopin' to be
Forget for a moment
our ongoing battles
This round of Peace is on me

This round of Peace is on me



Peace,

Dave

Hi Jean,

Been gone a while and haven't written since the 50/90, other than last night's disapointment song, and I won't put it on the boards, gotta live with the peoples decision and get on with life.

So "Thank You"!!.... for sparkin' an idea and helpin' to get me out of the dumps!


Thanks But No Thanks

(c) 2012 Geneva Griffin

Verse 1
I was shocked to hear your voice,
There was a time I'd been overjoyed,
Now to my surprise I couldn't shed a tear..
You were mine and I was yours,
You've left the one you left me for,
You kept me cryin'..lyin' in wait for years..

Chorus
So Thanks but No Thanks,
You had your chance.. those years in the past..
Thanks but No Thanks,
Cause today I'm thankful that.. love didn't last..
My wounds have healed, in those arms of time....
But if I look real hard, my scars are brought to light..
So Thanks but No Thanks..

Verse 2
Sorry for what you done to me,
Could we catch up over coffee,
And maybe one day laugh over old times..
Ya hurt the one you loved back then,
But hope one day to get me back again,
Funny I prayed.. you'd be back in my life..


Chorus
But Thanks but No Thanks,
You had your chance.. those years in the past..
Thanks but No Thanks,
Cause today I'm thankful that.. love didn't last..
My wounds have healed, in those arms of time....
And when I look real hard, my scars are brought to light..
So Thanks but No Thanks..

Bridge
I said Thanks for your concern,
I appreciate your call,
If I need moral support,
Or anything at all,
But then again.. when I stop and think....
..Thanks but No Thanks..

Chorus
Ya Thanks but No Thanks,
You had your chance.. those years in the past..
Thanks but No Thanks,
Cause today I'm thankful that.. love didn't last..
My wounds have healed, in those arms of time....
But if I look real hard, my scars are brought to light..
So Thanks but No Thanks..

See The Sunshine
© words and music by C. Stewart ( Nov. 8. 2012 )

LISTEN HERE[color:#FFFF00][color:#66FFFF].[/color].[color:#66FFFF].[/color] [/color]http://www.soundclick.com/bands/0/calvinstewart

Thank you for the hanky
When I blow my nose
And the heavy jacket
When the north wind blows

Thank you for the cables
When the car won't start
And the bowl of chili
Sorry bout the fart

CHORUS...
And on the days I fill the room with 40 shades of gloom
You always find a way to see the sunshine

Thank you for the candles
On my birthday cake
Let me see you shimmy
Love it when they shake

Thank you for the friendship
In a world so cold
Glad you love my weiner
Even though it's old

CHORUS...
And on the days I fill the room with 40 shades of gloom
You always find a way to see the sunshine

You always find a way to see the sunshine

Hi Jean,

I'm thankful for the challenge and for your time and effort in posting them for us. This one's from the heart.

Best,
Lynn smile


"I Am Thankful"
(c)2012 Lynn Orloff


Have I ever told you Jesus though at times my lips complain
That Iím thankful for the sunshine, even thankful for the rain
That Iím thankful for the blessings, and though trials sometimes come
You are there to hold my hand and give me grace through everyone

Have I told you lately Jesus though at times I lose my way
That Iím thankful beyond measure that you love me every day
That you shine your light so brightly I canít help but see you there
And you answer in your own way, every humble pleading prayer

I am thankful, I am thankful, I am thankful precious Jesus
I am thankful, I am thankful, I am thankful precious Lord


Did I tell you precious Jesus when thereís days I feel confused
Disappointed and discouraged I can always look to you
And I know that in my searching I donít have to look too far
You are faithful, and youíre waiting, I just look and there you are

Have I ever told you Jesus when the storms of life prevail
I am thankful for the shelter that you render without fail
How you calm me and remind me that this all shall come to pass
In my weakness I am strengthened by your words that light my path

I am thankful, I am thankful, I am thankful precious Jesus
I am thankful, I am thankful, yes I'm thankful precious Lord


I am thankful, I am thankful, I am thankful precious Jesus
I am thankful, I am thankful, oh so thankful precious Lord

Thank you my friend
Thank you again
For all that you do
For just being you
My gratitude will never end

You give your time
Unselfishly
Mountains to climb
You carry me
When rivers run deep
When the road has stones
You encourage me
Iím not alone

Thank you my friend
Thank you again
For all that you do
For just being you
My gratitude will never end

When shadows fall
And hide the light
When trouble calls
You make things right
If dreaming is gone
And my world is gray
You help me go on
You show the way

Thank you my friend
Thank you again
For all that you do
For just being you
My gratitude will never end

saw this section only recently and thought I'd have a go, cheers.

Thanks But No Thanks.

Took a long lost year
And an ocean of beer
To get over you,
My will to survive
Was barely alive
But I pulled through,
Now youíre flashing bedroom eyes
Saying you apologise
For leaving me,
Well thanks for the information
But Iíve no inclination
To repeat history.

chorus
I cried for you
In the gutters and drunk tanks,
But I got used to
Being sober without you
So thanks but no thanks.

It feels like yesterday
I begged you to stay
On trembling knees,
But you shook your head
At every word I said
And threw down your keys,
You never once looked round
As you scurried down
The garden path,
No words can ever describe
How I hurt inside
But now I just laugh.

chorus
I cried for you
In the gutters and drunk tanks,
But I got used to
Being sober without you
So thanks but no thanks.

bridge
So you left the man you ran to
And your heart is on the line
But I can't take another hangover
With you on my mind.

chorus
Yeah
I cried for you
In the gutters and drunk tanks
But I got used to
Being sober without you
So thanks but no thanks.
