May each day in the week be a good day...

...May the Lord always watch over you
And may all of your hopes turn to wishes
And may all of your wishes come true

May each day in the month be a good day
May you make friends with each one you meet
And may all of your daydreams be mem'ries
And may all of your mem'ries be sweet

The weeks turn to months and the months into years
There'll be sadness and joy, there'll be laughter and tears
But one thing I pray to heaven above
May each of your days be a day full of love

May each day in the year be a good day
May each dawn find you happy and gay
And may all of your days be as lovely
As the one you shared with me today

May each day of your life be a good day
And good night.

I remember as a child sitting and watching the Andy Williams show and looking forward to the Christmas specials. It was through this show that I first got to 'meet' the Osmonds (yes I was a Donny fan rather than David Cassidy & the Partridge Family) and it has to be Andy William's version of "Oh Holy Night" that tops my favourite Christmas songs.

The shows were fun and entertaining - the sort of thing all the family could sit down and enjoy (anyone remember the Cookie Monster?).

The lyrics above were used every week to bring the show to a close and whilst I didn't know all the words, I probably knew most of them. However, as a child the meaning behind the words never sunk-in but it was strange that these were the words that popped into my head when I read that Andy Williams passed away at the age of 84. He leaves behind some very well know tunes - even present youngsters will be familiar with many of his songs (even if they don't know who Andy Williams was) because they have been used in TV adverts.

R.I.P. Mr Williams - the angels are going to enjoy your music first hand from now on............................................

It was so sad to hear he passed, he left us with good memories and music that will stand the test of time.

Oh I didn't know that had happened. I remember my mam playing his records when she made sunday lunch and cleaned every week. That is sad. I popped over to tell you I had posted about Oliver here if you wanted to have a little look. jenx
