A ‘Likkle’ Fun Music For ‘Amy’s Bucket Brigade’

While all charitable institutions must covet “wealthy donors” and “major projects” to further their service goals, the lifeblood of a philanthropic enterprise is “awareness” among average citizens. Absent such awareness, it is extremely difficult for any nonprofit organization to become “a household name.” At the heart of efforts to raise this critical awareness are the “bell ringers” and the “bucket shakers” that volunteer their time to build “name ID and excitement” about sundry charitable ventures.

The Amy Winehouse Foundation is very fortunate to have a great reserve of troops ready to volunteer for “Amy’s Bucket Brigade.” These frontline troops are honored to “Shake A Bucket For Amy” and must always be encouraged to have fun and remain motivated in their duties.

For fun and motivation, a great Charlie Pride song – Kiss An Angel Good Morning – has been modified for “Amy’s Bucket Brigade.” Sung to the tune of KAAGM, the song is titled Shake A Bucket For Amy.

With the refrain lines on their tongues – and memories of AJW in their hearts and minds – Amy’s greatest ambassadors should be able to weather the harshest cold and the most sweltering heat as they perform their important duties.

Here are the modified lyrics, sung to the tune of KAAGM:

Title: Shake A Bucket For Amy

.

Whenever we chance to meet

Some new friends on our beat

They wonder how we ever got to be this way

We’ve always got a smiling face

Anytime and any place

And everytime they ask us why

We just smile and say

.

You’ve got to

Shake a bucket for Amy

And let her know you think about her when she’s gone

Shake a bucket for Amy

And let her see you helpin’ sow her seeds of love

.

People may try to guess

The secret of our happiness

but some of them never learn that it’s a simple thing

.

The secret we’re speakin’ of

Is the only things we ever keep

Are those we give away AND we always sing

.

We’ve got to

Shake a bucket for Amy

And let her know we think about her when she’s gone

Shake a bucket for Amy

And let her see us helpin’ sow her seeds of love

.

Shake a bucket for Amy

And let her know you think about her when she’s gone

So Shake a bucket for Amy

And let her see you helpin’ sow her seeds of love

Some amateur “karaoke style” videos might soon be produced and “Amy’s Bucket Brigade” troops might have fun with them. While their work is very serious, doing that work without joyful singing is not the way of those who serve the legacy of the JadeMermaid Princess.
