From Sgt. Joe Fraioli
If I could roll back the Sun, and make this a longer day.
It would give me more time to see your smile, and your heavenly ways.
Oh, if I could hold back the Sun, and make it a longer day.
Your smile tells me there’s no more wars, only peace today – what more can you ask a smile to say?
If I could hold back the Sun for just one day.
Your smile will melt all the Troubles of the day.
The October program of the Historical Society of Frankford will be live-streamed at 7:30 on October 12, 2021. Political Science Professor Stephen E. Medvec, Ph.D., of Holy Family University, will discuss the Lewis and Clark Expedition.
After President Jefferson purchased the French claim to a substantial portion of North America, he commissioned fellow Virginians Meriwether Lewis and William Clark to go exploring, and report back on the native tribes, wildlife, and terrain.
This turned out to be one of the great non-military adventures of American history, and also a Tale of Two Cities, because while the expedition was to set out from Charlottesville, only Philadelphia had outfitters with sufficient supplies and equipment. Furthermore, as Mr. Jefferson was President of the American Philosophical Society (APS) at the same time that he was President, the Journals of the Expedition ended up in the Special Collections Library of APS in Philadelphia, where Prof. Medvec studied them in order to produce this talk.
When the stars give into the morning, as the earth circles the sun,
And Moon keeps circling earth, and flowers sip on the morning dew.
As the birds continue to chirp. Then the alarm clock starts ringing,
And you know it’s time to go to work. You get up, and you start singing.
Oh, what a Beautiful Day. Then you say to yourself what a good feeling,
If everyone could feel this way.
Then I knew this would be a better world to live in,
As the Sun keeps shining through.
So, take time early in the morning, to watch the flowers as they sip the morning dew.
Because when the stars give into daybreak, Life Begins anew.
Looking for someone I can tell my story to.
Looking for someone who understands the Blues.
Is there anybody out there with nothing else to lose?
Because when you’re not thinking about it; here come those everyday blues,
And in a blink of an eye, you’re in a different mood.
So, when you walk around with your head hanging down.
This is What people don’t understand, it’s all about those everyday Blues.
But when you realize you have a lot to lose, that’s when you should stretch out your hand and Whisper a Silent prayer,
And He’ll be there too take hold of your hand, and chase away those everyday blues.
