Saturday’s Song: Footloose

Today’s song was a request from one of my readers.  I have to say, it’s completely appropriate as a weekend pick-me-up.  But, it’s also a little bittersweet for me to post it because this movie (the original, of course!) was one I wanted to watch with Ex-BF and the boys.  I always thought Drake would love it, and I wonder if he’s seen it yet.  On a happier note, my college roommate once told me that she used to kick off her shoes and sing this song to her sister after returning from church with her family.  That story makes me smile.

If anyone has seen the remake of the movie, please comment and let me know if it was decent.  I don’t want to tarnish the classic by feeding myself a poor substitute.  Enjoy the weekend, everyone!

Footloose lyrics
Written by Kenny Loggins and Dean Pitchford

I’ve been working so hard
I’m punching my card
Eight hours for what?
Oh, tell me what I got

I’ve got this feeling
That time’s just holding me down
I’ll hit the ceiling or else I’ll tear up this town
Tonight I gotta cut

Loose, footloose kick off your Sunday shoes
Please, Louise pull me off a my knees
Jack, get back c’mon before we crack
Lose your blues everybody cut footloose

And you’re playing so cool
Obeying every rule
I dig a way down in your heart
You’re burning, yearning for songs

Somebody to tell you
That life ain’t passing you by
I’m trying to tell you
It will if you don’t even try
You can fly if you’d only cut

Loose, footloose kick off your Sunday shoes
Oowhee, Marie shake it, shake it for me
Whoa, Milo c’mon, c’mon let’s go
Lose your blues everybody cut footloose

Cut footloose
Cut footloose
Cut footloose

We got to turn me around
And put your feet on the ground
Now take a hold of the phone
Whoa, I’m turning it loose

Loose, footloose kick off your Sunday shoes
Please, Louise pull me off a my knees
Jack, get back c’mon before we crack
Lose your blues now everybody cut footloose

Loose, footloose kick off your Sunday shoes
Please, Louise pull me off a my knees
Jack, get back c’mon before we crack
Lose your blues

Everybody cut everybody cut
Everybody cut everybody cut
Everybody cut everybody cut
Everybody everybody cut footloose
