Pendergrass, Teddy - This Gift Of Life Lyrics

This gift of life
Ooh I treasure it above everything
This gift of life
I'm so thankful, Lord knows I'm thankful to be livin'
It's the only thing you can't buy with money
It's the only thing you can't buy...
It's such a pleasure to be born
This gift of life
Ooh, I really love, I really love, I really love, I love this feelin'
This gift of life
Every day it's keeps on keeps on keeps on revealin'
All the wonderful, the marvelous the glorious things of
I'm so thankful that I'm alive with this gift of life
I'm truly blessed, yes I am
With this gift of life
It's so wonderful, wonderful, wonderful, it's so wonderful
And I wanna thank you for giving me the privilege just to live
So I that I can give all that I can
I'm so thankful to be able to make this long long journey
Ooh, Lord, I appreciate all the little things that you do
'Cause I like, I like the sunshine
And I like the cloudy days
I like the rain
I like snow
And I like to hear, I just like to hear the wind blow
I like everything on this earth
This gift of life

    I dedicate this to my dad August 7th 1951-October 26th, 2019. I'm gonna miss our 3-5 hour conversations I'm gonna miss pretending you were my lawyer you are/were the smartest man I have ever known I'm gonna miss our arguments I'm gonna miss rubbing your face when we listened to music together Thank you God for the time I had with my father altho not always good but when a person is gone you miss every single thing I was never a perfect daughter but I am Your Daughter I may not have always showed it but I love you from the depth of my soul I love you daddy sleep easy rest peacefully until we meet again...💓😘

  8. The Scatman

    How can I slow dance with a lady to a tune that throws in a 5/8? (LOL!) Probably why the producers went Earl Young on drums for this, rather than Charles Collins or Keith Benson! Those Philly cats were beastin' with this joint! And Teddy comes in and delivers the knockout! Damn.....!

  12. Nunya Bizz

    I remember hearing this song at a teen retreat & one of the counselor had the campers really thinking hard about how we take life and most of all, our loved ones for granted. Back then I didn't take the song seriously but I now try to mean it every time I say thank you, be it good or bad.

  13. Louis Ruckes ,Jr.

    Yes this gift of life is a blessing and we take it for gratitude !
