MUSIC IS MEDICINE FOR THE MIND

Music is medicine for the mind

A drug - but of the healing kind

That can serve to sooth the savage breast

Or see a soul rise to the test.

 

And if words are added to adorn

A tune from inspiration born

Something magical can glisten

To make us see even as we listen.

 

Amazing Grace of a timeless sort

That survives to give solace and support;

So let us give thanks for what we hear -

Medicine for the mind - bringing tear and cheer..

I've sung a song for sixpence
Have pocket full of cash
Spirits have been raised all round
Home for din now dash

Everyone is happy
Doom and gloom kicked out
Sing a song of sixpence
That's what's life's about


Eth?...Wot's a sixpence?.....

It's those little round silver things you collected in your piggy bank. Remember in kindy Miss Bethel taught you all about currency and the investment markets?........

She was a luvly teacher Eth...why did she have to die?.......

At Christmas we open piggy and put sixpences in the pudding.....

I thought they were threepences Eth?.......

Absolutely Mark...music has the ability to lift spirits. Obviously different types of music works for different people but the principle is the same. Then there are the stirring tunes used on the battlefield, and at sporting events etc. All designed for motivation.
