Scattered lyrics from this year's host & hostess numbers, which, after 14+ hours at Moody this week, WILL NOT leave my head:

Left a good job in the city
Workin' for the man every night and day
And I never lost one minute of sleepin'
Worried 'bout the way things might have been
Big wheels keep on turnin'
Oh, the proud Mary keep on burnin'
And we're rollin' (rollin'), rollin' (rollin'), rollin' on the river...
(The girls' number)

It seems such a waste of time
If that's what it's all about
Mama, if that's movin' up
Then I'm movin' out...
(Jeremiah's solo)

Well it goes through St. Louie, Joplin, Missouri

Oklahoma City looks oh-so-pretty
You'll see Amarillo and Gallup, New Mexico
Flagstaff, Arizona - don't forget Winona
Kingman, Barstow, San Bernadino

Would you get hip to this timely tip
When you take that California trip
Get your kicks on Route 66...
(The guys' number)

I want Jesus to walk with me
I want Jesus to walk with me
All along life's pilgrim journey
I want Jesus to walk with me

He said it in His Word and I know that He walks with me
I know that He keeps His promises and He walks with me
Hold it in my heart, I believe Jesus walks with me...
(Everyone, plus SHADES)

And I'll praise You in this storm
And I will lift my hands
For You are who You are
No matter where I am
And every tear I've cried
You hold in Your hands
You've never left my side
And though my heart is torn
I will praise You in this storm...
(Luke's solo)

Baby, let's cruise away from here...
And if you want it, you got it forever...
You're gonna fly away
Glad you're goin' my way
I love it when we're cruisin' together...
(Jeremiah and Shaylee)

This joint is jumpin' - it's really jumpin'
Come in cats, and check your hats
I mean, this joint is jumpin'...
(Randy and Luke)

Everything changes
Nothin' looks the same through the eyes of love
Everything changes
When you love some - love some - love someone
Everything changes...
(Everyone, plus all the clubs & classes - the finale)

When someone you love is totally absorbed in something, it necessarily becomes part of your life, too. This week Sing Song has been my life, in a totally new way. I've brought Jeremiah dinner up at Moody, taken tons of pictures, chatted with hosts and hostesses and costume-clad club people, and watched him dance and sing over and over again. And I'll spend half the weekend doing the same. I am excited for Betsy and Leigh Anne and Jake and Whitney and all my other friends who are in the class and club acts - but this year, it's all about my J. I have eyes only for him when he's onstage. And I have never, ever been so excited to see ANYONE in a show.

T minus 7 1/2 hours until tonight's show. It's Sing Song time!

That's really sweet, Katie. J is a lucky guy.
