Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

The theme for Song Lyric Sunday this week is “first.” 


While the neither the title of the lyrics contain this week’s theme, the featured group’s name does! 😀 😀

Just Dropped In … by Kenny Rogers and the First Edition (with Kenny Rogers on lead vocals) peaked at number five on the Billboard charts. It was Rogers’ first top ten hit. The song captures the short-lived psychedelic era of the late 1960s, stands apart from the country folk harmonies that characterized most of the First Edition’s catalog,  and got the group their first national TV audience on The Smothers Brothers Comedy Hour.
