Gather 'round me, everybody
Gather 'round me while I preach some
Feel a sermon comin' on me
The topic will be sin
And that's what I'm agin
If you want to hear my story
Then settle back and just sit tight
While I start reviewing
The attitude of doing right…
I plug in my iPhone to my Mini Cooper.
And these words come out of the speakers
And I always let them play.
Tis the first song of my iTunes.
Miss Ella, reminding me every time I drive to:
Ac-cent-tchu-ate the positive
E-lim-i-nate the negative
Latch on to the affirmative
Don't mess with mister in-between
I like spreading joy up to the maximum.
And we all need to latch on to the affirmative.
Have faith, or pandemonium
At any time walking on the scene.
I like an amazing woman, the first lady of song
who toured 40-45 weeks a year in the US and Internationally
that shattered glass with one of her notes
who together with Marilyn Monroe took on a nightclub
that wouldn't let her sing because of her color
to be in my ears many times when I need it
Racing to the airport
And on the occasional solo drive screeching my Mini around the sweet hot corners of wine country
Telling me to remember to be positive
To be a light
To spread joy.
When everything sometimes looks so dark.
So give Miss Ella a listen, I do all the time.
She knows where it's at.
