SLS – One Word

Jim has given us an interesting theme for this week’s Song Lyric Sunday. He asked us to pick a song with a one word title. That has given me a chance to feature a song I had been hoping for an opportunity to use for some time.

The artist is Madonna, and the song with a one word title “Vogue”. This iconic and perhaps one of Madonna’s most popular tracks was written by Madonna L Ciccone and Shep Pettibone.

Strike a pose
Strike a pose
Vogue (vogue, vogue)
Vogue (vogue, vogue)

Look around, everywhere you turn is heartache
It’s everywhere that you go (look around)
You try everything you can to escape
The pain of life that you know (life that you know)
When all else fails and you long to be
Something better than you are today
I know a place where you can get away
It’s called a dance floor
And here’s what it’s for
So

Come on, vogue
Let your body move to the music (move to the music)
Hey, hey, hey
Come on, vogue
Let your body go with the flow (go with the flow)
You know you can do it

All you need is your own imagination
So use it that’s what it’s for (that’s what it’s for)
Go inside for your finest inspiration
Your dreams will open the door (open up the door)
It makes no difference if you’re black or white
If you’re a boy or a girl
If the music’s pumping it will give you new life
You’re a superstar
Yes, that’s what you are
You know it

Come on, vogue
Let your body groove to the music (groove to the music)
Hey, hey, hey
Come on, vogue
Let your body go with the flow (go with the flow)
You know you can do it

Beauty’s where you find it
Not just where you bump and grind it
Soul is in the musical
That’s where I feel so beautiful
Magical, life’s a ball
So get up on the dance floor

Come on, vogue
Let your body move to the music (move to the music)
Hey, hey, hey
Come on, vogue
Let your body go with the flow (go with the flow)
You know you can do it

Vogue (vogue)
Beauty’s where you find it (move to the music)
Vogue (vogue)
Beauty’s where you find it (go with the flow)

Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire
Ginger Rogers dance on air

They had style, they had grace
Rita Hayworth gave good face
Lauren, Katherine, Lana too
Bette Davis, we love you

Ladies with an attitude
Fellas that were in the mood
Don’t just stand there, let’s get to it
Strike a pose, there’s nothing to it

Vogue, vogue

Ooh, you’ve got to
Let your body move to the music
Ooh, you’ve got to just
Let your body go with the flow

Ooh, you’ve got to
Vogue

It’s still such an amazingly strong and inspiring song. No matter what you think of Madonna, you still gotta love this one ☺️
