Soul Serenade
Aretha Franklin Lyrics


Only you
Can hear my soul
Serenade

I want to be free to fly away and sing to the world
About my soul serenade, my soul serenade
When you're not around there's a lonely sound
In my soul serenade, in my soul serenade

Everyone but you adores me
But do you know pretty soon they bore me
Let me tell you right now that they bore me
They bore me with their pretty little words
Those pretty little words of devotion

But oh, let me tell you right now
My message to 'em this evening
Is they can jump in anybody's ocean
Because only you hear my soul
My soul serenade, my soul serenade
Oh, my soul serenade, my soul serenade

MY MOTHER TOLD ME WHEN SHE WAS PREGNANT WITH ME ALL SHE LISTEN TO WAS ARETHA FRANKLIN . I CAN REMEMBER BACK IN THE EARLY 60's ON SATURDAY WHEN WHEN SHE WAS WASHING OUR CHOTHES IT WENT DOWN WITH ARETHA. THAT WHY I LOVE ARETHA. MY DAUGHTER LOVE ARETHA AND HER DAUGHTER LOVE ARETHA. ARETHA IS IN OUR BLOOD. THAT IS WHAT YOU CALL MUSIC. I LOVED TO SONG ARETHA FRANKLIN SONG TO MY HUSBAND BEFORE HE PASS . I KNEW WHAT PUT HIM IN THE MOOD. 30 WONDERFUL YEARS.

My mother never told me that, but something must have been going on because whenever I hear this lady sing certain songs I get goose bumps, maybe it's my soul serenade or something.

This part of the sound track of my childhood... My mother loved her some Aretha Franklin.

Aretha started in the church with her Dad. She carried that "Church" sound into the secular world, that is why it moves you. Well it moves me. Love this lady. Fellow native Detroiter.
