Living The Life I Choose
Saturday, January 6, 2007

Not originally written as Filk, this song reminds a lot of folks of Mal and/or Wash... Kind of a Browncoats Anthem, too.


CATEGORY: FILK    TIMES READ: 2323    RATING: 9    SERIES: FIREFLY

I wrote this song, words and melody, about 2 years before I became a Browncoat. Now, however, I find myself thinking of either Mal or (Most especially) Wash when I listen to it. I must not be Alone, because Julesong is playing it on her "Can't Take The Sky" Radio Station, http://www.live365.com/cgi-bin/mini.cgi?membername=julesong&clientType=&playlist=&odatrack=&odapos= , and VampBarbie fron serenitymovie.com is thinking of using it in a Fan Video. Here are the Lyrics:

LIVING THE LIFE I CHOOSE

V1>

When it comes to money, I don't have a lot

Know what I'm missing and I know what I've got

I'm singing Love songs instead of the Blues

'Cause I'm living the life I choose

V2>

Don't have a Chauffer or a big Limousine

Know where I'm going and i know where I've been

I'm happy wearing out these old beat up shoes

'Cause I'm living the life I choose.

Bridge>

One in the morning and outside it's storming

But that doesn't bother me none

I know when I rise you'll look into my eyes

With a Love as bright as the Sun

V3>

So I'll keep going just the way that I am

May not be rich but I'm a wealthy man

I've got your Love and i've got nothing to prove

So I'm living the life I choose

I'm singing Love songs instead of the Blues

'Cause I'm living the life I choose

Yes I'm living the l;ife I choose!

Thank you, Brigadier! And a big thank you to those who have listened to it. Soundclick keeps "Charts" and this song is now number 11 on the Dixieland jazz Chart!

My Friend VampBarbie has been making FanVids for a while now, and she asked to use one of my Songs so of course I said Yes. :) She e-mailed me today, and it's done! The name of my song is "Living the life I choose", and here's a link to the Video:



Hope you all enjoy it! :D
