Hourglass [Enhanced CD] album at
James Taylor's, "Shower the People"
The Lyrics:
Shower the people
Taylor consistently pronounces 'the' as 'thee' in the title lyric throughout the song. 'The' should only be pronounced 'thee' in front of a word beginning with a vowel. 'People' does not begin with a vowel. Drives me nuts.
