Let Me Serenade You, for Jake’s Challenge

Jake’s Sunday Post Challenge this week is ‘With Musical Instrument’. Being a musician myself, I really admire people who use their musical ability to entertain others. From experience, I know that it can take a lot of courage to actually perform in front of total strangers, but once one gets past the nerves, the performer can enjoy it, as much as the audience.

These song lyrics from the 1960’s American rock band ‘Three Dog Night’, came into my head whilst I was looking for photos of musicians who have serenaded me on my travels.

Let Me Serenade You

I will serenade you, all along the way
I will serenade you, anyway you say

Take you to the country, I’ll take you to the shore
Show you to my garden, I know you’ll make it grow.

If you let me serenade you
You know that’s what you come for,
So that I will serenade you

And when the walls begin to fall
Can’t hold back the joy
That love will conquer all.

Every moment, every day,
If you want to hold me, I will stay.

Let me serenade you, I will serenade you
