"Danny's Song" as written by and Kenny Loggins....
People smile and tell me I'm the lucky one,
And we've only just begun.
Think I'm gonna have a son.
He will be like she and me, as free as a dove,
Conceived in love.
Sun is gonna shine above.

And even though we ain't got money,
I'm so in love with you, honey,
And everything will bring a chain of love.
And in the morning, when I rise,
You bring a tear of joy to my eyes
And tell me everything is gonna be alright.

Seems as though, a month ago, I was Beta-Chi,
Never got high.
Oh, I was a sorry guy.
And now, I smile and face the girl that shares my name.
Now I'm through with the game.
This boy will never be the same.

And even though we ain't got money,
I'm so in love with you, honey,
And everything will bring a chain of love.
And in the morning, when I rise,
You bring a tear of joy to my eyes
And tell me everything is gonna be alright.

Pisces, Virgo rising is a very good sign,
Strong and kind,
And the little boy is mine.
Now I see a family where the once was none.
Now we've just begun.
Yeah, we're gonna fly to the sun.

And even though we ain't got money,
I'm so in love with you, honey,
And everything will bring a chain of love.
And in the morning, when I rise,
You bring a tear of joy to my eyes
And tell me everything is gonna be alright.

Love the girl who holds the world in a paper cup.
Drink it up.
Love her and she'll bring you luck.
And if you find she helps your mind, better take her home.
Don't you live alone.
Try to earn what lovers own.

And even though we ain't got money,
I'm so in love with you, honey,
And everything will bring a chain of love.
And in the morning, when I rise,
You bring a tear of joy to my eyes
And tell me everything is gonna be alright.

    General CommentThis was the song we chose for our first dance at our wedding reception. We had little money (each making $18,000 yearly) but we were so much in love. The marriage lasted two decades; the man is still very special to me; and this song will always take me back to the afternoon that we danced to it in the large room of his parents mansion. (Then we did the Hokey Pokey to my chagrin:)

    General CommentThis song reminds me of my parents. Whenever the song is played and I start to hear the chorus, it brings tears to my eyes and I remember my parents who've loved me I loved back.

    General CommentI first heard this song on a cd that was given out at a wedding reception.

    What a great song this is. It just gives you this beautiful picture of this young couple just starting out on their own.

    General Comment"Everything will bring a chain of Love"
    Synchronicity, tuned in.

    Reminds me of the ending of one of my favorite songs (by Clapton) "Let it Rain" where it is said :

    "Now I know the secret; there is nothing that I lack.
    If I give my love to you, youll surely give it back."

    Song MeaningPretty straight forward.. basically its a song you sing at the beginning of a relationship, before the bitterness of your lack of self eats you up and you divorce.
