#MusicMonday – Here I go out to sea again…

Hi and welcome to Music Monday! First of all, credit where credit is due: Music Monday is hosted by Drew a.k.a. @SarcasticEnigma over on The Tattooed Book Geek. Each week he presents a song that he really loves and this week I’m joining in with a song from my favourite wintery album: Wonderful Life from the album Funny Looking Angels by Smith & Burrows.

I have three versions for you: the album version, a Peaky Blinders version for the Peaky Blinders fans among you, and an acoustic version. And because I’m not one for half measures, I’ve added the original version by Black as well 😄

Here I go out to sea again
The sunshine fills my hair
And dreams hang in the air
Gulls in the sky and in my blue eye
You know it feels unfair
There’s magic everywhere
Look at me standing
Here on my own again
Up straight in the sunshine


No need to run and hide
It’s a wonderful, wonderful life
No need to laugh and cry
It’s a wonderful, wonderful life

The sun’s in your eyes
the heat is in your hair
They seem to hate you
because you’re there
And I need a friend
oh I need a friend
to make me happy
Not stand here on my own
Look at me standing

Here on my own again
Up straight in the sunshine

No need to run and hide
It’s a wonderful, wonderful life
No need to laugh and cry
It’s a wonderful, wonderful life

I need a friend, oh I need a friend
To make me happy, not so alone
Look at me here
Here on my own again
Up straight in the sunshine

No need to run and hide

It’s a wonderful, wonderful life
No need to laugh and cry
It’s a wonderful, wonderful life

No need to run and hide
It’s a wonderful, wonderful life
No need to laugh and cry
It’s a wonderful, wonderful life

Wonderful life
Wonderful life
