She's faced the hardest times

Another, I'm enjoying this..lol!

There's a sign on the wall, but she wants to be sure..
'Cause you know sometimes words have two meanings..
In a tree by the brook, there's a song bird who sings...
Sometimes all of our thoughts are misgiven....
Ooh.. it makes me wonder...
Ooh.. it makes me wonder

That would be Stairway to Heaven....
How about this one...
"Hanging from a string in my Mama's kitchen
Back in the hard time days.
Was a little old stone 'bout the size of an apple
It was smooth and worn and gray"

I love silly ditties and Shel Silverstein wrote good ones.

NOT a song:
I eat my peas with honey
I've Done it all my life
They do taste kinda funny
but, it keeps them on my knife.

There's a light, a certain kind of light...
That never shone on me, I want my life to be lived with you, lived with you..
There's a way everybody say, to do each and every little thing...
But what does it bring..
If I ain't got you, ain't got you....
