Thankful N' Thoughtful

Sly & the Family Stone  Buy


 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

Sunday morning, I forgot my prayer
I should have been happy, I still be there
Something could have come and taken me away
But the mainman felt Sly should be here another day

That's why I got to be thankful yeah, yeah
I gotta be thoughtful
Ah ha thankful, you gotta be

From my ankle to the top of my head
I've taken my chances hah, I could have been dead
I started climbing from the bottom oh yeah
All the way to the top ah huh
Before I knew it-I was up there
You believe it or not

Thankful thoughtful

Oh something gets me, hah, put my head on tight
Because I know the future everything'll be all right
Until then I'll kick back and let the light shine
Remember all yours coulda been all mine

That's why you ought to be thankful
Hah, hah, you ought to be thoughtful

Middle of stream, hah, I had to change my stroke
I say I put it on the good foot And it ain't no joke
They said I was dyin' I didn't want to go
I kept on feelin' I had to live some more

I had somethin' to tell y'all
To be thankful you oughta be thoughtful

Still rectifying, straightening things out
I know what a good feelin' you're never in doubt
Sometimes I'm by myself- feelin' alone
I just look around and check it out And then it's all gone

I'm still happy to be here
Thankful you oughta be thoughtful
Count your blessings

My Momma gave me a song And said Son sang
Record thankful and thoughtful, be such a nice thang
People got to be reminded where it's really at
Make your Daddy happy Momma likes it like that

You know I know you know I know
I'm thankful you know I'm thoughtful
