Story

ALL THE PROCEEDS FROM THIS SONG GO TO THE BRUCE IS BACK FUND! Bruce and Giggles Tilley

#12 on our new CD is inspired by the love of a very good friend of ours, BRUCE TILLEY.  Bruce has had some major health issues recently ... He has lost a leg at mid-calf due to diabetes complications. He wants everyone to know that he is on the mend and anxiously waiting to come back to San Carlos, Sonora, Mexico. We want to show our appreciation to Bruce and his wife, "Giggles", as they prepare for a new life coping and learning how to get around the house/area. All proceeds from our new song, SPICE IT UP, written by Michael Gregory and Bobby Sahlen, with musical support of some local San Carlos musicians, will go into a special BRUCE IS BACK FUND to help curb the costs of handicap related items for their San Carlos house (like rails, ramps, etc). Bruce  is someone who has served his country with honor and supported his San Carlos community with kindness. NOW ABOUT THE SONG .... Michael Gregory was driving down the road one day shortly after hearing the frustrating news about Bruce's health problems.  A phrase kept popping into his mind..."change what you are doing". He immediately went home and wrote some lyrics. Bobby  put the words to music. We love you Bruce! 

"Spice it up! Change what you're doin'. Stop wastin’  time. Spice it up! Don't look back. Move to the front of the line!..." 

 

 

Lyrics

C                               C7                             

SOMEONE TOLD ME  YESTERDAY,

            F                       C

"LIFE'S A BITCH WHEN YOU GET OLD"

                                    A7                                

NO HEALTH, NO WEALTH, NO MODERN MIND,

       D7                 G7

 THE PAST IS ALL YOU HOLD

    C                               C7                                       

I THOUGHT FOR A MOMENT, EXAMINED MY LIFE,

          F                        C#dim7

AND WONDERED IF HE SPOKE THE TRUTH

C                                  A7                                          

TOOK A SIP OF TEQUILA AND TOLD HIM: 

           D7                 G           C7

"LIFE'S WASTED ON THE YOUTH."

 

CHORUS

F                                                                                                                                       

SPICE IT UP!  CHANGE WHAT YOU'RE DOIN'. 

C

 STOP WASTIN' TIME 

         E7    A7                                  

SPICE IT UP! DON'T LOOK BACK!.

D7                              G7                        

 MOVE TO THE FRONT OF THE LINE

 

LIFE'S WHAT YOU MAKE OF IT; GO ALL IN

TO WIN ALL THE CHIPS IN THE POT

DON'T YOU WORRY 'BOUT WHAT YOU LACK,

BE HAPPY WITH WHAT YOU'VE GOT

BETTER DAYS ARE STRAIGHT AHEAD

WITH GOOD FRIENDS...YOURS AND MINE

THEY'LL HELP YOU CHANGE YOUR OUTLOOK.

GROWIN' OLD IS LIKE FINE WINE (CHORUS)

 

SO THE NEXT TIME SOMEONE TELLS YOU,

"LIFE'S A BITCH WHEN YOU GET OLD.

NO HEALTH, NO WEALTH, NO MODERN MIND;

THE PAST IS ALL YOU HOLD"

TELL HIM HE SHOULD SPICE IT UP

AND GRAB A SEAT AT THE TABLE

LIFE'S A BANQUET, TAKE A BITE ,

AS LONG AS YOU ARE ABLE. (CHORÚS)
