New Online Workshop Guidelines Modifications


 

I have been thinking a lot lately of how fortunate I am for having discovered and committed myself to our RC project over forty-five years ago.

This morning as I was doing Pilates [an exercise program], I was listening to some music by George Gershwin, a U.S. composer and pianist. As I listened to “I Got Rhythm,” one of his songs from the 1930s, I thought, “Well, I have RC.”

When I got to my computer, I looked up the lyrics and transformed some of them to make the following song. (You can find the original lyrics and various artists performing the song on the Internet.) If you have lyrics to add, please send them to me. At this time, we can all benefit from music and laughter.

I Got RC

Days can be sunny with never a sigh
Don’t need what money can buy
Birds in the trees sing their dayful of songs
Why shouldn’t we sing along?
I’m chipper all the day
Happy with my life
How do I get that way?
Look at what I’ve got:

I got RC, I got discharge, I got counselors
Who could ask for anything more?
I’ve got flowers in green pastures
I’ve got counselors
Who could ask for anything more?

Old man trouble I don’t mind him
You won’t find him ’round my door
I’ve got RC
I’ve got my goals
I’ve got theory
Who could ask for anything more?

Oh, I’ve got RC
I’ve got music
I’ve got world change
I’ve got starlight
I’ve got sweet dreams
I’ve got counselors
Who could ask for anything more?

I’ve got humor
I’ve got laughter
I’ve got comrades
Who have great brains
Who could ask for anything more?

I’ve got discharge,
I’ve got RC
Who could ask for anything more?
