Calee Reed – She Put The Music In Me lyrics

It started with rock-a-bye, comforting when I'd cry
All in her own style
Then popcorn before my eyes, turning frowns upside down
Into smiles
With songs of the birds up high, looking at the blue blue sky
The wind as it rushes by
Then leading me, guiding me, walking beside me she helped me
To walk in the light.

She built my house on a rock
And she lives all that she taught
And she is all that a woman should be
She put the music in me

I knew He was really there, He heard my child's prayer
Answering from up above
She gave like a little stream, I was her sunbeam
And I felt my Savior's love
I saw her kneel and pray with our family every day
Listening to each whispered word
Gentle in deed and thought, all the things Jesus taught

Following promptings she heard

She lives to search, ponder, pray
And she gives everyday
So her thanks will always be thanks indeed
She put the music in me

He made the tiny wings of each little bird that sings
In the leafy treetops up high
And all creatures great and small, I know God made them all
Because of her sweet lullaby

She's like a star shining bright and helps me to choose the right
And she gives me the hope of a life yet to be
She put the music in me
She is so good to me, Heavenly Father sent her to me
She taught me to lift up my voice and sing
She put the music in me.
She put the music in me.
She put the music in me.

    This song, "She Put The Music In Me" is a tribute to the artist's mother. It contains references to a lot of children's songs that are taught to children ages 18 months and up to 12 years old who attend an organization called Primary, which is part of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (the Mormons). The first verse references a song that is familiar to a lot of people, "Rock-a-bye Baby", then "Popcorn Popping on the Apricot Tree" and "If You Chance to Meet a Frown", "My Heavenly Father Loves Me", and "Teach Me to Walk in the Light".
    The chorus references "The Wise Man and the Foolish Man".
    The second verse references "A Child's Prayer", "Give" Said the Little Stream", "Jesus Wants Me for a Sunbeam", "I Feel My Savior's Love", and "Love Is Spoken Here".
    The second chorus references "Search, Ponder, and Pray".
    The third verse references "in the Leafy Treetops", "All Things Bright and Beautiful", and possibly 'Mary's Lullaby".
    The third chorus references "Mother Dear", "Choose the Right" or "Choose the Right Way", "Mother I Love You", and "Lift Up Your Voice and Sing".

    That is all I can think of right now, do you see more? If you look up all of these songs or if you are familiar with them, you will understand this song better, it is simple, yet very lovely and meaningful.
