Een Shoot the Moon site laatst bijgewerkt op: 22 september 2021 ©  2021 We besluiten de vijfde meezingavond gewoonlijk met een setje gospelliederen. En dan kunnen we natuurlijk niet om de Queen of Gospel heen: Mahalia Jackson. Zij zong veel liederen van de hand van Thomas Andrew Dorsey (de Father of Black Gospel Music), waaronder dit lied: I'm gonna live the life I sing about in my song. I'm going to live the life I sing about In my song I'm going to stand for right, and always Shun the wrong If I'm in a crowd, if I'm alone On the street or in my home I'm going to live the life I sing about In my song Every day, everywhere On that busy thoroughfare Folks may watch me, some may spot me Say I'm foolish, but I don't care I can't sing one thing and then live another Be a saint by day, and a devil undercover I'm going to live the life I sing about In my song If at day, if at night I must always walk in the light Some mistake me, underrate me Because I want to do what's right I can't go to church and shout all day Sunday Go out and get drunk, and raise hell all of Monday I've got to live the life I sing about In my song I'm going to live the life I sing about In my song I'm going to stand for right, and always Shun the wrong If I'm in a crowd, if I'm alone On the street, in my home I'm going to live the life I sing about In my song, yes, in my song.
