My name is Robbie Lee: I currently live in the Greater Chicago area. I am a blind singer/songwriter and hold a B.A. degree in music from Columbia College Chicago. When sighted on the streets of Chicago, I am often asked: Are you Stevy Wonder? and may I have your autograph? Mind you, I didn't know this until so many people kept referring to me as Stevy. Well, after twenty-years: I am thoroughly convinced that he and I bare a striking resemblance. I even get work as a celebrity look-alike because of it. Now the famous question is when I tell them that I am not Stevy Wonder: Is "Are you sure you're not Stevy Wonder?"

Lyrics Song 5 "Just My Way"


"Just My Way Of Livin"
By
Robert L. Hall

Verse 1
Music is a special interest of minds,
Oh it helps me, oh it helps me to unwind,
See it's the way it makes me feel,
and it's just my way of livin.
Verse 2
Without music I couldn't make it through the days, nall nall,
See when the music starts to flow,
I have to get up on that floor,
I just lose my self, my self control,
See it's the way it makes me feel,
And it's just my way of livin.
(BRIDGE)
Verse 3
(repeat of verse 1)
Verse 4
(repeat of verse 2)
Verse 5
Listen to the music?
Now start groovin to the beat,
Listen to the music,
And get up on your feet,
Now just start dancin, dancin, dancin, dancin to the beat
Verse 6
Sometimes I get so tired of livin the same old way,
But with music, a major change.
Sometimes I get so tired of singin? the same old way,
But with music, well now it ain't the same.
Vamp)
?Cause it's just, oh's just,
It's just, oh's just,
It's just, oh's just my way of livin,
Do you wonnah dance to the beat of the band?
I've gotta dance, To the beat of the band.
Do you wonna sing, while you do your thing,
I?ve gotta sing, while I do my thing.

Hi Robbie,

Thanks for your review of our song "Just Me And Myself". We appreciate the nice rods.

Due to very serious health issues, we've been away from the site for over 5 months. That is the reason for our late reply. Please know we appreciate the review and kind words you left for us.

Good luck with your music,
