The way back home.





Enjoy the Moment
(Listen.)

Life is here and life is now,
Though we question why and how.
Each new day brings good and bad.
Makes us happy, sad.

Enjoy the moment,
This moment in time.
Enjoy the moment.
It's a moment sublime.

Enjoy this moment.
Look at life with a smile.
Enjoy each moment.
Makes your whole life worthwhile.

Find love and kindness
Wherever you can.
Find love and kindness.
They're a treasure for man.

Find love and kindness,
And spread them all around.
Find love and kindness
And let peace abound.

Life's a blessing, life's a curse;
Could be better, could be worse.
You can smile or you can frown,
Feel you're up . . . or down.

Enjoy the moment,
As time races by.
Enjoy the moment.
Find a laugh, not a sigh.

Enjoy the moment,
Through the sadness and pain.
Enjoy the moment,
Sunshine comes after rain.

Enjoy the moment,
This moment in time.
Enjoy the moment,
It's a moment sublime.

Enjoy each moment,
From the moment of dawn.
Enjoy each moment,
Before the moment is gone.

Enjoy each moment,
Before the moment is gone!


Just with a Smile
(Listen.)

Just with a smile, once in a while, to savor --
Sunshine when it's cloudy.
Just with a smile, through trouble and trial,
To brighten my day, send worries away.
That look in your eye, it teases.
I can't deny it pleases.
It is an art, the way that you melt my heart.

Just with a smile, you charm and beguile,
Just with your style, you charm me.
Oh,

Just with a grin, choirs begin.
I'm in a spin. Heaven I'm in.
Oh, when I'm with you, good times ensue,
Happiness, too; they all accrue.

These mem'ries I hold.
These blessings unfold,
More treasured than gold
Is.

Treasured more than the gold is, every ton,
Every diamond, every one,
More than life is treasured,
You are treasured,
Son!


I'm Thankful
(Listen.)

Time comes,
Years have slipped by.
Past is gone, and my time is nigh.
So now is the season, now is the hour
To taste the sweet and overlook the sour.

I'm thankful for family,
The love they've shown, so constantly.
The kindness, joy, the care and concern,
A sweetness more than I could ever return.

These family ties make the world go 'round.
No stronger bond could never be found.
For love inspires and it warms the heart.
And it keeps the world from blowin' apart.

I'm thankful for friends that I've had,
For true-blue friendships; I'm oh so glad.
They are enriching, inspiring, too.
And friendships last for years and years through.

I'm thankful for so many years,
For laughter, smiles, for frowns and tears,
For through the heartache, the trouble and toil,
Those golden mem'ries you can never spoil.
Those golden mem'ries you can never spoil.
I'm so thankful!
