Strong by Robbie Williams:

My breath smells of a thousand fags
And when Im drunk I dance like me dad
Ive started to dress a bit like him

Early morning when I wake up
I look like kiss but without the make up
And thats a good line to take it to
The bridge

And you know and you know
Cos my lifes a mess
And Im trying to grow so before
Im old Ill confess
You think that Im strong youre wrong
Youre wrong
Ill sing my song my song my song

My beds full of takeaways and fantasies
Of easy lays
The pause buttons broke on my video
And is this real cos I feel fake
Oprah Winfrey Ricki Lake
Teach me things I dont need to know

And you know and you know
Cos my lifes a mess
And its starting to show so before
Im old Ill confess
You think that Im strong youre wrong
Youre wrong
Ill sing my song my song my song

If I did it all again Id be a nun
The rain was never cold when I was young
Im still young were still young
Lifes too short to be afraid
Step inside the sun

And you know and you know
Cos my lifes a mess
And Im trying to grow

And you know and you know
Cos my lifes a mess
And Im trying to grow

And you know and you know
Cos my lifes a mess
And Im trying to grow

You think that Im strong youre wrong
Youre wrong
Ill sing my song my song my song

You think that Im strong youre wrong
Youre wrong
Ill sing my song my song my song

Lifes too short to be afraid
So take a pill to numb the pain
You dont have to take the blame

Lifes too short to be afraid
So take a pill to numb the pain
You dont have to take the blame

Lifes too short to be afraid
So take a pill to numb the pain
You dont have to take the blame

"Lame Claim To Fame" Weird Al Yankovic

One time I was in the checkout line
Behind Steven Seagal
Once I'm pretty sure Mr. Jonah Hill
Was in the very next bathroom stall
My best friend's brother
Well, he was an extra in Wayne's World 2
My neighbour's baby sitter
Dated three of the guys in Motley Crue
I swear Jack Nicholson
Looked right at me at a Laker's game


I got a lame
Lame claim to fame


Check it out, I bought a second hand toaster
from a guy who says he knows Brad Pitt
I got me an email from the prince of Nigeria
Well, he sure sounded legit
My sister used to take piano lessons
From the second cousin of Ralph Nader
Last year I threw up in an elevator
Next to Christian Slater
Well guess what, my birthday and Kim Kardashian's
Are exactly the same




Once at a party, my dentist accidentally
Sneezed on Russell Crowe
I posted first in the comments
On a YouTube video
I tried to sit by Steve Buscemi
But he told me this seat's taken
I know a guy who knows a guy who knows a guy
Who know a guy who knows a guy who know Kevin Bacon


I had a car that used to belong
To Cuba Gooding Jr.'s uncle
A friend of mine in high school
Had jury duty with Art Garfunkel
One time I was staying in the same hotel
As Zooey Deschanel
I used the same napkin dispenser
As Steve Carell at a Taco Bell
I don't mean to brag but
Paul Giamatti's plumber knows me by name




Ow, let's get lame boys
