These are some songs from the great singersongwriter, John Prine.

Sam Stone

Sam Stone came home, to his wife and family after serving in the conflict overseas
And the time that he had served, shattered all his nerves, and left a little shrapnel in his knee
But the morphine eased the pain, and the grass grew 'round his brain, and gave him
the confidence he lacked, with a purple heart and a monkey on his back

There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes
And Jesus Christ died for nothin', I suppose
Little pictures have big ears, dont stop to count the years
And sweet songs never last too long on, broken radios

Sam Stone's welcome home, didn't last too long
He went to work when he'd spent his last dime
And Sammy took to stealin', when got that empty feelin'
For a hundred dollar habit, without overtime
And the gold rode through his veins, like a thousand railroad trains
And eased his mind in the hours that he chose,
While the kids ran around wearin' other people's clothes

There's a hole in daddy's arm, where all the money goes
And Jesus Christ died for nothin', I suppose
Little pictures have big ears, don't stop to count the years
Sweet songs never last too long, on broken radios

Sam Stone was alone, when he popped his last balloon,
Climbing walls while sitting in a chair,
Well he played his last request, while the room smelt just like death
With an overdose hoverin' in the air,
But life had lost it's fun, and there was nothing to be done,
But to trade his house he bought on the G.I. bill,
For a flag-draped casket on the local heroes' hill

There's a hole in daddy's arm where all the money goes,
And Jesus Christ died for nothin', I suppose
Little pictures have big ears, don't stop to count the years
And sweet songs never last too long, on broken radios


Illegal Smile

When I woke up this mornin', things were lookin' bad
Seemed like total silence, was the only friend I had
Bowl of oatmeal tried to stare me down, and won
It was Twelve O' Clock before I realized I was having no fun

Ahh but fortunately I have the key to escape reality,
And you may see me today with an illegal smile,
It don't cost very much, but it lasts a long while,
Won't you please tell the man, I didn't kill anyone,
No I'm just tryin' to have me some fun

Last time I checked my bankroll, it was gettin' thin
Sometimes it seems like the bottom is the only place I've been
I chased a rainbow down a one-way street, dead end
And all my friends turned out to be insurance salesmen

Ahh but fortunately I have the key to escape reality,
And you may see me today with an illegal smile,
It don't cost very much, but it lasts a long while,
Won't you please tell the man, I didn't kill anyone,
No I'm just tryin' to have me some fun

Well I sat down in my closet, with all my overalls,
Tryin' to get away from, all the years inside my walls,
I dreamed the poe-lice heard everything I thought, what then?
I went to court, and the Judge's name was Hoffman

Ahh but fortunately I have the key to escape reality,
And you may see me today with an illegal smile,
It don't cost very much, but it lasts a long while,
Won't you please tell the man, I didn't kill anyone,
No I'm just tryin' to have me some fun
Well done, hot dog bun, my sister's a nun


Dear Abby

(talking): About uh, about three months ago, I was in, uh, Rome..Italy. I don't know what I was doin' there, I was just there. Then I got a sandwich one day, and they had a newspaper there. It was the only newspaper they had there that was in English.. and they had all the news from around the world, just crammed into four pages.  They didnt even have the funnies in there.  Everytime you turned the page somethin' jumped out at ya. I found an old friend in there, and I wrote her a song. Its for Dear Abby.


Dear Abby Dear Abby,
My feet are too long, my hair's fallin' out and my rights are all wrong,
My friends they all tell me I have no friends at all, won't you write me a letter? Won't you give me a call?
Siiiigned, Bewildered

Bewildered Bewildered,
You have no complaints, you are what you are and you ain't what you ain't,
So listen up buster and listen up good, stop wishin' for bad luck and knockin' on wood

Dear Abby Dear Abby,
My fountain pen leaks, my wife hollers at me, and my kids are all freaks
Every side i get up on is the wrong side of bed, if it weren't so expensive I'd wish I were dead
Siiiiiigned, Unhappy

Unhappy Unhappy,
You have no complaints, you are what you are and you ain't what you ain't,
So listen up buster and listen up good, stop wishin' for bad luck and knockin' on wood

Dear Abby Dear Abby,
You won't believe this, but my stomache makes noises whenever I kiss
My girlfriend tells me its all in my head, but my stomache tells me to write you instead
Siiiiigned, Noisemaker

Noisemaker Noisemaker,
You have no complaints, you are what you are and you ain't what you ain't,
So listen up buster and listen up good, stop wishin' for bad luck and knockin' on wood

Dear Abby Dear Abby,
Well I never thought that me and my girlfriend would ever get caught,
We were sittin' in the backseat just shootin' the breeze,
With her hair up in curlers and her pants to her knees,
Siiiiiigned, Just Married

Just Married Just Married,
You have no complaints, you are what you are and you ain't what you ain't,
So listen up buster and listen up good, stop wishin' for bad luck and knockin' on wood
Siiiiigned, Dear Abby


Souvenirs

All the snow has turned to water, Christmas Days have come and gone
Broken toys and faded colors, are all that's left to linger on
I hate graveyards and old pawnshops, for they always bring me tears
I can't forgive the way they rob me, of my childhood souvenirs

Memories, they can't be bought, and they can't be won at Carnivals for free
Well it took me years, to get those souvenirs, and I don't know how they slipped away from me

Broken hearts and dirty windows, make life difficult to see
Thats why last night and this morning, always look the same to me
I hate readin' old love letters, for they always bring me tears
I can't forgive the way they rob me, of my sweetheart souvenirs

Memories, they can't be bought, and they can't be won at Carnivals for free
Well it took me years, to get those souvenirs, and I don't know how they slipped away from me



John Prine is a great song-writer imo.

Anyone else want to share lyrics?

Sting - Fields of Gold

You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we walk in fields of gold

So she took her love
For to gaze awhile
Upon the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down
Among the fields of gold
Will you stay with me, will you be my love
Among the fields of barley
We'll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we lie in fields of gold

See the west wind move like a lover so
Upon the fields of barley
Feel her body rise when you kiss her mouth
Among the fields of gold

I never made promises lightly
And there have been some that I've broken
But I swear in the days still left
We'll walk in fields of gold
We'll walk in fields of gold

Many years have passed since those summer days
Among the fields of barley
See the children run as the sun goes down
Among the fields of gold
You'll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You can tell the sun in his jealous sky
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold
When we walked in fields of gold


Billy Joel - She's Always a Woman

She can kill with a smile, she can wound with her eyes,
She can ruin your faith with her casual lies,
And she only reveals what she wants you to see.
She hides like a child but she's always a woman to me.
She can lead you to love, she can take you or leave you,
She can ask for the truth but she'll never believe you,
And she'll take what you give her as long as it's free,
Yeah she steals like a thief but she's always a woman to me.
Oh, she takes care of herself, she can wait if she wants,
She's ahead of her time.
Oh, and she never gives out and she never gives in,
She just changes her mind.
And she'll promise you more than the garden of Eden
then she'll carelessly cut you and laugh while you're bleeding,
But she brings out the best and the worst you can be.
Blame it all on yourself cause she's always a woman to me.
Oh, she takes care of herself, she can wait if she wants,
She's ahead of her time.
Oh, and she never gives out and she never gives in,
She just changes her mind.
She is frequently kind and she's suddenly cruel,
She can do as she pleases, she's nobody's fool,
But she can't be convicted, she's earned her degree,
And the most she will do is throw shadows at you
But she's always a woman to me.


Lionel Richie - Stuck On You

Stuck on you
I've got this feeling down deep in my soul that I just can't lose
Guess I'm on my way
Needed a friend
And the way I feel now I guess I'll be with you 'til the end
Guess I'm on my way
Mighty glad you stayed

I'm stuck on you
Been a fool too long I guess it's time for me to come on home
Guess I'm on my way
So hard to see
That a woman like you could wait around for a man like me
Guess I'm on my way
Mighty glad you stayed

Oh, I'm leaving on that midnight train tomorrow
And I know just where I'm going
I've packed up my troubles and I've thrown them all away
'Cause this time little darling
I'm coming home to stay

I'm stuck on you
I've got this feeling down deep in my soul that I just can't lose
Guess I'm on my way
Needed a friend
And the way I feel now I guess I'll be with you 'til the end
Guess I'm on my way
I'm mighty glad you stayed

Cool Change by Little River Band

If there's one thing in my life that's missing
It's the time I spend alone
Sailing on the cool and bright clear waters
There's lots of those friendly people
Showin me ways to go
And I never want to lose your inspiration

Time for
a cool change...
I know that it's time
for a cool change
Now that my life
is so pre-arranged
I know that it's time
for a cool change

Well I was born in the sign of water
And it's there that I feel my best
The albatross and the whales
they are my brothers
It's kind of a special feeling
When you're out on the sea alone
Starin' at the full moon
like a lover

Time for
a cool change...
I know that it's time
for a cool change
Now that my life
is so prearranged
I know that it's time
for a cool change

Well I've never been romantic
And sometimes I don't care
I know it may sound selfish
But let me breathe the air

If there's one thing in my life that's missing
It's the time that I spend alone
Sailing on the cool and bright clear waters
It's kind of a special feeling
When you're out on the sea alone
Staring at the full moon like a lover

Time for
a cool change...
I know that it's time
for a cool change
Now that my life is so prearranged
I know that it's time
for a cool change


Sister Christian by Night Ranger


Sister Christian
Oh, the time has come
And you know
That you're the only one to say
Okay
Where you going
What you looking for
You know those boys
Don't want to play no more
With you
It's true
CHORUS
You're motoring
What's your price for flight
In finding mister right
You'll be all right tonight
Babe, you know
You're growing up so fast
Mommy's worrying
That you won't last to say
Let's play
Sister Christian
There's so much in life
Don't you give it up
Before your time is due
It's true
Motoring
What's your price for flight
You've got him in your sights
And driving through the night
Motoring
What's your price for flight
In finding mister right
You'll be all right tonight
Sister Christian
Oh, the time has come
And you know
That you're the only one to say
Okay
But you're motoring
You're motoring



You Are By Jimmy Wayne


Baby when I look at you,
You know it breaks my heart in two,
How beautiful you are

(verse 2)
Seen you in a million dreams,
now you're finally here with me,
We will never be apart

(bridge)
I wanna hold you forever,
That's all I'll ever need

(chorus)
You are my love, you are my life,
My heart and soul
the truest friend I've ever known,
You are my world, all of my dreams,
My fantasy, my reality,
I love everything you are, yes I do

(verse 3)
Everytime I close my eyes,
Hit's me so deep inside,
How ill this feelin is,

I'm intoxicated by your touch,
It's a sweet sweet rush,
I'm in love with your kiss,

(bridge)
You're the one that I trust the most,
You changed me,

(chorus)
You are my love, you are my life,
My heart and soul
the truest friend I've ever known,
You are my world, all of my dreams,
My fantasy, my reality,
I love everything you are,

(chorus)
(chorus)
You are my love, you are my life,
My heart and soul
the truest friend I've ever known,
You are my world, all of my dreams,
My fantasy, my reality,
I love everything you are,
Everything, I love everything, you are

Of Mice & Men - Megadeth

The fire burns on
and all that drives me on
till all is gone except
the simple plans of mice and men

Back when I was just 17
I thought that I knew everything
I could make it in this scene
To be a rising star that only gleamed
When all the answers disagreed
With the questions held for me

I was legal now at 21
I knew the way the world should run
My God, just look what I had done
Simply drunk and having fun
Looked for friends but I found none
All alone at 21

The fire burns on
and all that drives me on
till all is gone except
the simple plans of mice and men

At 25 I was suprised
That I was even half alive
somehow I managed to survive
I found my bodys' doing time
In my back a hundred knives
All from my friends at 25

And now as Gabriel sounds my warning bell
I'd buy your life if you would sell
**A year or two** if less compelled
So live your life and live it well
Theres not much left of me to tell
I just got back up each time I fell

The fire burns on
and all that drives me on
till all is gone except
the simple plans of mice and men

The fire burns on
and all that drives me on
till all is gone except
the simple plans of mice and men

The fire burns on
and all that drives me on
till all is gone except
the simple plans of mice and men

The fire burns on
and all that drives me on
till all is gone except
the simple plans of mice and men

Joe Henry-Stop   

Don't tell me to stop
Tell the rain not to drop,
Tell the wind not to blow
Cause you said so;
Tell me love isn't true
It's just something we do,
Tell me everything I'm not
But don't tell me to stop

Tell the sun not to shine
Not to get up this time,
Let it fall by the way,
Leave me where I lay;
Tell the leaves not to turn
But don't tell me I'll learn,
Take the black off a crow
But don't tell me to go

Tell the bed not to lay
Like the mouth of a grave,
Not to stare up at me
Like a caliph on its knees;
Tell me love isn't true
It's just something we do,
Tell me everything I'm not
But don't tell me to stop


Michael Penn-Long Way Down (Look What the Cat Drug In)

Oh man,
look what the cat drug in
It's got the dress, tho the color's gone
that I gave my one true love on

Oh man, look what the wind blew home
Never had this much stimulation
since her low down elevation, but

Oh, don't look in those eyes
bluer than blue
her rule's on the rise
and if I wear apathy's crown
don't call me higness
it's a long way down

Oh, what terrible things she shows
I'm overwhelmed by rumors this high
and overcome by lows
Oh, what use is it to pretend
that I have the strength for this anymore
This is all in the world that she lives for but...

Oh, don't look in those eyes
bluer than blue
her rule's on the rise
and if I wear apathy's crown
don't call me highness
('cause) it's a long way down

Now I would suppose
that I'm not the only one
and one never knows...
but I got a feeling she's been
sleeping with the whole wide world

Oh, don't look in those eyes
bluer than blue
her rule's on the rise
and if I wear apathy's crown
don't call me highness
it's a long way down

Peter Gabriel- Darkness

im scared of swimming in the sea
dark shapes moving under me
every fear i swallow makes me small
inconsequential things occur
alarms are triggered
memories stir

its not the way it has to be

im afraid of what i do not know
i hate being undermined
im afraid i can be devil man
and im scared to be divine
dont mess with me my fuse is short
beneath this skin these fragments caught

when i allow it to be
theres no control over me
i have my fears
but they do not have me

walking through the undergrowth, to the house in the woods
the deeper I go, the darker it gets
i peer through the window
knock at the door
and the monster i was
so afraid of
lies curled up on the floor
is curled up on the floor just like a baby boy

i cry until i laugh

im afraid of being mothered
with my balls shut in the pen
im afraid of loving women
and im scared of loving men
flashbacks coming in every night
dont tell me everythings alright

when I allow it to be
it has no control over me
i own my fear
so it doesnt own me

walking through the undergrowth, to the house in the woods
the deeper i go, the darker it gets
i peer through the window
knock at the door
and the monster i was
so afraid of
lies curled up on the floor
is curled up on the floor just like a baby boy

i cry until i laugh

you have to guess what song this is.

***

A cloud of eiderdown
Draws around me
Softening a sound.
Sleepy time, and I lie,
With my love by my side,
And she's breathing low.

And the candle dies.

When night comes down
You lock the door.
The book falls to the floor.
As darkness falls
The waves roll by,
The seasons change
The wind is wry.

Now wakes the hour
Now sleeps the swan
Behold the dream
The dream is gone.
Green fields are calling
It's falling, in a golden door.

And deep beneath the ground,
The early morning sounds,
And I go down.
Sleepy time, and I lie,
With my love by my side,
And she's breathing low.

And I rise, like a bird,
In the haze, when the first rays
Touch the sky.

And the night wings die.

Bowie: Everyone says hi


Said you took a big trip
They said you moved away
Happened oh, so quietly
They say

Shoulda took a picture
Something I could keep
Buy a little frame
Something cheap
For you

Everyone says hi

Said you sailed a big ship
Said you sailed away
Didn't know the right thing
To say

I'd love to get a letter
Like to know what's what
Hope the weather's good
And it's not too hot
For you

Everyone says hi
Everyone says hi

Everyone says
Don't stay in a sad place
Where they don't care how you are
Everyone says hi

If the money is lousy
You can always come home
We can do the old things
We can do all the bad things
If the food gets you leery
You can always phone
We could do all the good things
We could do it, we could do it,
we could do it
Don't stay in a bad place
Where they don't care how you are

Everyone says hi
Everyone says hi
Everyone says hi
And the girl next door
And the guy upstairs
Everyone says hi
And your mum and dad
Everyone says hi
And your big fat dog
Everyone says hi

Nobody gives a damn about anybody else,
Think everyone should feel
The way they feel themselves,
Rich men think that happiness
Is a million dollar bills,
So how come most of them O.D.
On sleeping pills,
Eye for eye,tooth for tooth,
You all know what I mean,
What's the use of a cry for help,
If no one hears the scream,
No one hears the scream,
No voices in the sky,
Confusion blinds the eye,
Can't take it with you when you die,
No voices in the sky
The ones dedicate the flags
To make you brave,
They also consecrate
The headstone on your grave,
Ritual remembrance
When no one knows your name,
Don't help a single widow
Learn to fight the pain,
Politicians kissing babies
For a good luck,
T.V.Preachers sell salvation
For a buck,
You don't need no golden cross,
To tell you wrong from right,
The world's worst murderers
Were those who saw the light.



Another day, just like any other
out of the blue, it turned to horror
How could they? Why would they?
The innocents suffered hell's inferno
An senseless act that goes unforgotten
How could they? They will pay.

When the Eagle Cries

Out of the ashes came a tempted vengeance,
but we are focused, we seek redemption
we are free, we'll stay free
All they've done, is make us stronger
The sleeping giant, is asleep no longer
If need be, we'll die free

When the Eagle Cries (blood will flow)
When the Eagle Cries (for freedom's fight)
When the Eagle Cries (we love us all)
When the Eagle Cries (we'll sacrifice)
When the Eagle Cries

When the Eagle Cries (blood will flow)
When the Eagle Cries they made us stronger (for freedoms fight)
When the Eagle Cries we'll sacrifice (we love us all)
When the Eagle Cries for freedom's fight (we'll sacrifice)

Stephen Stills - Love The One You're With

If you're down and confused
And you don't remember who you're talking too
Concentration slips away
Cause you're baby is so far away

Well there's a rose in the fisted glove
And eagle flies with the dove
And if you can't be with the one you love honey
Love the one you're with (4X)

Don't be angry - don't be sad
Don't sit crying over good times you've had
There's a girl right next to you
And she's just waiting for something to do

Well there's a rose in the fisted glove
And eagle flies with the dove
And if you can't be with the one you love honey
Love the one you're with (3X)
Doo doo doo doo...
Love the one you're with (4X)

Turn your heartache right into joy
Cause she's a girl and you're a boy
Get it together come on make it nice
You ain't gonna need anymore advice

Well there's a rose in the fisted glove
And eagle flies with the dove
And if you can't be with the one you love honey
Love the one you're with (4X)
Doo doo doo doo....

Hmm... my favorites are Voltaire's "I'll See You In Hell":

Rain soaked soul, I
See our crying day here
From ice cold eyes march
A parade of tears

It's hopeless don't it seem
When even in my dreams
You put me through Hell

I've tried everything I could
To make you see the good in me
I'm just sorry that I failed
Keep your empty tears

It's hopeless don't it seem
When even in my dreams
You put me through Hell
And left me this way
It's so obscene
You were so mean
When you meant everything to me
I'll see you in Hell
Just go on this way
And then some day
When you awake
I'll be a thousand miles away
(And you'll be in Hell
Least I hope you will)

It's hopeless don't it seem
When even in my dreams
You put me through Hell
And left me this way
It's so obscene
You were so mean
When you meant everything to me
I'll see you in Hell
Just go on this way
And then some day
When you awake
I'll be a thousand miles away
Somewhere near Hell...

Nirvana's "Drain You"

One baby to another says I'm lucky to have met you
I don't care what you think, unless it is about me
It is now my duty to completely drain you
A travel through a tube, and end up in your infection

Chew your meat for you
Pass it back and forth
In a passionate kiss
From my mouth to yours
I like you

With eyes so dilated, I've became your pupil
You've taught me everything, without a poison apple
The water is so yellow, I'm a healthy student
Indebted and so grateful, vacuum out the fluids

Chew your meat for you
Pass it back and forth
In a passionate kiss
From my mouth to yours
I like you

One baby to another says I'm lucky to have met you
I don't care what you think, unless it is about me
It is now my duty to completely drain you
A travel through a tube, and end up in your infection

Chew your meat for you
Pass it back and forth
In a passionate kiss
From my mouth to yours
Sloppy lips to lips
You're my vitamins
I'm like you

Jayhawk's "Save it for a rainy day"

Pretty little hair-do don't do what it used to
Can't disguise the living
All the miles that we've been through

Looking like a train wreck
Wearing too much makeup
The burden that you carry
Is more than one soul could ever bare

Don't look so sad, Marina
There's another part to play
Don't look so sad, Marina
Save it for a rainy day
Save it for a rainy day
Save it for a rainy day

You never make your mind up
Like driving with your eyes shut
Rough around the edges
Won't someone come and take you home

Waiting for a breakthrough
What will you set your mind to?
We stood outside the Chinese restaurant in the rain

Don't look so sad, Marina
There's another part to play
Don't look so sad, Marina
Save it for a rainy day
Save it for a rainy day
Save it for a rainy day

Don't look so sad, Marina
There's another part to play
Don't look so sad, Marina
Save it for a rainy day
Save it for a rainy day
Save it for a rainy day
Save it for a rainy day
Save it for a rainy day

Meat Puppet's "Oh me"(Well, I have Nirvana's version, but the Meat Puppets played it with them)


If I had to lose a mile
If I had to touch feelings
I would lose my soul
The way I do

I don't have to think
I only have to do it
The results are always perfect
And that's old news

Would you like to hear my voice
sweetened with emotion
Invented at your birth?

I can't see the end of me
My whole expanse I cannot see
I formulate infinity
And store it deep inside of me
If I had to lose a mile

If I had to touch feelings
I would lose my soul
The way I do

I don't have to think
I only have to do it
The results are always perfect
And that's old news

Would you like to hear my voice
sweetened with emotion
Invented at your birth?

I can't see the end of me
My whole expanse I cannot see
I formulate infinity
And store it deep inside of me
And store it deep inside of me

A good Momus song, one of my favorites:

She was seeing two at exactly the same time
She never mentioned you when she was round at mine
But when you were round at hers you always made a scene
'Cause you only had ears for descriptions of the stranger she was seeing

And what she saw in me was only what attracts
The many girls I see behind their lovers' backs
But what she saw in you, I could never work it out
There was just one thing she found it turned you on to talk about

The inexplicable charisma of the rival
You said "Describe for me the hairstyle of the devil
Is he passionate? (Don't answer!)
Is he detached? (Don't answer that!)
Does he please you in the sack? (Shut up, don't answer back!)
Just tell him I'm dying to meet him"

She called me up, she said she'd had enough
Of all the paranoia you mixed up with your love
We spent the night together, she woke me up at dawn
And called an all-night taxi
And when you came I was gone

You found my comb behind her chest of drawers
She said she'd slept alone but the bed was full of hairs
And when you matched them up, beyond a shadow of a doubt
The hairs belonged the Beelzebub
And you began to puzzle out

The inexplicable charisma of the rival
You said "Describe for me the hairstyle of the devil
Does he make you laugh? (Don't answer!)
Does he earn a lot? (Don't answer that!)
Does he dress you up in black? (Shut up, don't answer back!)
Just tell him I'm dying to meet him"

The inexplicable charisma of the rival
With the luck and the hairstyle of the devil

And so you gaze at the people all about
In every stranger's face you try to make me out
And when you meet me finally your horns will lock with mine
For the beast rules with rivalry
As the clock rules with time

For the beast rules with rivalry
As the clock rules with time

For the beast rules with rivalry
As the clock rules with time

Pleased to meet you, hope you've guessed my name......

Bowie: Everyone says hi


Said you took a big trip
They said you moved away
Happened oh, so quietly
They say

Shoulda took a picture
Something I could keep
Buy a little frame
Something cheap
For you

Everyone says hi

Said you sailed a big ship
Said you sailed away
Didn't know the right thing
To say

I'd love to get a letter
Like to know what's what
Hope the weather's good
And it's not too hot
For you

Everyone says hi
Everyone says hi

Everyone says
Don't stay in a sad place
Where they don't care how you are
Everyone says hi

If the money is lousy
You can always come home
We can do the old things
We can do all the bad things
If the food gets you leery
You can always phone
We could do all the good things
We could do it, we could do it,
we could do it
Don't stay in a bad place
Where they don't care how you are

Everyone says hi
Everyone says hi
Everyone says hi
And the girl next door
And the guy upstairs
Everyone says hi
And your mum and dad
Everyone says hi
And your big fat dog
Everyone says hi

Everyone Says Hi is very sentimental for me. my young cousin moved away and began a new life for himself and i miss him very much.
he really needed to get away and change things and i'm sure he's much better off where he is, but i want to tell him i miss him everyday.

yes, heathen is great.

One of my all-time faves for lyrics....Don McLean...penned this beauty in the 70s:

NARCISSISMA
(if you know it, you are automatically my best friend)

Narcisissma, Narcisissma is the pride of Pomona,
Pomona, Pomona says she looks like me.
But she will look like you when I'm set free.

Narcisissma, Narcisissma is the belle of Biloxi,
Biloxi, Biloxi says she's not your kind
But Narcisissma gives me peace of mind.

She's got no braids in the inkwell, no money on the prize.
Ain't got no boyfriend behind her that she can't hypnotize.
And if you wanna see yourself without delusions or delies.
All you do is just look into her eyes.

Narcisissma, Narcisissma has no pride or delusions,
Delusions, delusions make me turn my face
But Narcisissma let's me find my place.

She's got no grudges, no crutches, no pigment and no peeves.
No cryers, no pliers, no liars and no sleeves.
And she will always tell you every thing that she believes.
She's got no belly button too, no high heeled shoe.

Narcisissma, Narcisissma is the pride of Pomona,
Pomona, Pomona says she looks like me.
But she will look like you when I'm set free.

Well everybody's lookin' like they're s'posed to
But nobody's lookin' very good.
So when you find somebody to get close to
Well don't you think you should?

Narcisissma, Narcisissma loves to thrill and delight me,
Delight me, delight me and I'll never quit
'Cause Narcisissma knows just where I fit.

She's got no tight draws, locked doors, nothin' on the side.
Ain't got no skin flaws, in-laws, nothin' left to hide.
And if you need a new location where you'll best be satisfied
You might prefer, to fall in love with her

Narcisissma, Narcisissma is the pride of Pomona,
Pomona, says she looks like me.
But she will look like you when I'm set free.

Sorry pet but that's the reverse mullet.

The fringe over the face is retarded, the real mullet is business in the front and party in the back.

Mister Jones and Me by Counting Crows


I was down at the New Amsterdam
Staring at this yellow haired girl
Mr. Jones strikes up this conversation
With this black haired flamenco dancer
She dances while his father playes guitar.
She's suddenly beautiful
We all want something beautiful
I wish I was beautiful

So come dance this silence
Down through the morning.
sha la la la la la Uh, huh...
Cut up Maria!
Show me some of them spanish dances.
Pass me a bottle, Mr. Jones
Believe in me
Help me believe in anything (cause)
I want to be someone who believes

Mr. Jones and me
Tell each other fairy tales
Stare at the beautiful women
"Is She looking at you. Ah no, no she's looking at me."
Smiling in the bright lights
Coming through in stereo
When everybody loves you,
You can never be lonely

I want to paint my picture
Paint my self in blue and red and black and grey
All of the beautiful colors are very very meaninful
(You know) Grey is my favorite color
I felt so symbolic yesterday
If I knew Picasso
I would buy myself a grey guitar and play

Mr. Jones and me look into the future
Stare at the beautiful women
"She's looking at you.
Uh, I don't think so.
She's looking at me."
Standing in the spotlight
I bought myself a grey guitar
When everybody loves me,
I will never be lonely I will never be lonley

I will never be lonley
I want to be a lion
Everybody wants to pass as cats
We all want to be big big stars,
But we got diffrent reasons for that.
Believe in me because
I don't believe in anything
And I want to be someone to believe, to believe, to believe.

Mr. Jones and me
Stumbling through the barrio
Yeah we stare at the beautiful women
"She's perfect for you, Man, there's got to be Somebody for me."
I want to be Bob Dylan
Mr. Jones wishes he was someone just a little more funky
When everybody loves you, son,
That's just about as funky as you can be.

Mr. Jones and me
Staring at the video
When I look at the television,
I want to see me staring right back at me.
We all want to be big stars,
But we don't know why, and we don't know how.
But when everybody loves me,
I'm going to be just about as happy as I can be.

Mr. Jones and me,
We'e gonna be big stars.....

I like this one...not a lot of songs about history.

BUDAPEST BY BLIMP

On the corners of boulevards I call your name
Now and again they play our tune
In the grip of a tiny hand over a flame
Pale as the phases of the moon ...
In the cafes and shopping malls I see your face
turn into mist on evening dew
but a book and a photograph just aren't the same
there is a train that's leaving soon

...Budapest by Blimp

Over pillars and palaces I'll hold your hand
Until the fog is lifted
May be better you hold me close than understand
How far away I've drifted
In the face of a tragedy too bleak to know
The death of some grand illusion
All the treasure we pilloried, splendour we stole ...
They never told you that in school

KONNYEBB VOLNA TAN FELEDNI
MINT TAVOZASOM ERTENI
MULTBOL EGY KISZAK ITTOTT LAP
EKODBOL INDUL EGY VONAT

...Budapest by Blimp

...Que je voudrais vous presenter, messieurs et dames
Regardez bien, je vous en prie
Here's a map and a diagram, a shrivelled page
Ripped from the book of history
See the priceless antiquity frozen in time
Built on the ashes of the Jews
And for your curiosity, beauty sublime
Signed in the blood of Zulus

Not really a goosestep, more of a limp

...Budapest by Blimp

Don't Ask Me Why - Billy Joel

All the waiters in your grand cafe
Leave their tables when you blink
Every dog must have his everyday
Every drunk must have his drink
Don't wait for answers
Just take your chances
Don't ask me why

All your life you had to stand in line
Still you're standing on your feet
All your choices made you change your mind
Now your calender's complete
Don't wait for answers
Just take your chances
Don't ask me why

You can say the human heart
Is only make-believe
And I am only fighting fire with fire
But you are still a victim
Of the accidents you leave
As sure as I'm a victim of desire

All the servants in your new hotel
Throw their roses at your feet
Fool them all but baby I can tell
You're no stranger to the street
Don't ask for favors
Don't talk to strangers
Don't ask me why

Yesterday you were an only child
Now your ghosts have gone away
You can kill them in the classic style
Now you, "parlez vous francais"
Don't look for answers
You took your chances
Don't ask me why
Don't ask me why

I think that you're the one
When everytime you call me lady
I don't know what it is
That makes me feel like this just lately yeah


Those heavenly calls
You knew I was on my own
Those heavenly calls
We stepped into the unknown


Let me sleep
So I can dream of you
Let me sleep
So I can be with you

What's a girl to do when she's alone
With you just tell me
And here we are again yeah acting
Like we're friends don't held me






Hold me close, let me be with you
At least tonight, we'll be misunderstood



Let me sleep
Oh let me sleep
Let me sleep so I can dream of you
Let me sleep so I can be with you
Let me sleep so I can dream of you
Let me sleep so I can be with you
Let me sleep (5x)

If I had to live my life without you near me
The days would all be empty
The nights would seem so long
With you I see forever oh so clearly
I might have been in love before
But it never felt this strong
Our dreams are young and we both know
They'll take us where we want to go
Hold me now, touch me now
I don't want to live without you

CHORUS:
Nothing's gonna change my love for you
You ought to know by now how much I love you
One thing you can be sure of
I'll never ask for more than your love
Nothing's gonna change my love for you
You ought to know by now how much I love you
The world may change my whole life through
But nothing's gonna change my love for you

If the road ahead is not so easy
Our love will lead a way for us
Like a guiding star
I'll be there for you if you should need me
You don't have to change a thing
I love you just the way you are
So come with me and share the view
I'll help you see forever too
Hold me now, touch me now
I don't want to live without you

Paper Airplanes (Makeshift Wings) by AFI

Raise high monolithic statues so fragile as they fall
I am ever enthralled
Gaze, lie and smirk in time, your arrogance will suit you well
'Til fashion is dispelled

As waves of plastic fame go out of fashion
You're going out, going out forever unknown
These waves of plastic fame go out of fashion
(These waves of plastic fame are drying up and I smile)
You're going out, going out forever unknown
(Because you're dying to become forever unknown, unkown)

From above a rain of ashes descends
Anathema I will remain, forever will remain
From below, in my seclusion
Look up to the sky to see paper wings and watch them burn

Without habitation, you'll never find a soul inside
No life, but nothing's died
No lights, but quite the show (Just as long as no one ever knows
All motion is pantomime)

As waves of plastic fame go out of fashion
You're going out, going out forever unknown
These waves of plastic fame go out of fashion
(These waves of plastic fame are drying up and I smile)
You're going out, going out forever unknown
(Because you're dying to become forever unknown, unkown)

From above a rain of ashes descends
Anathema I will remain, forever will remain
From below, in my seclusion
Look up to the sky to see paper wings and watch them burn

Dancing in the rain of descending ash
Dancing on your grave, I'll see you all falling
Dancing in the rain of descending ash
Dancing in your dust, I'll see you all falling
I'd stop it, had you a heart (your heart)
I'd stop it, had you a heart (your heart)

From above a rain of ashes descends
Anathema I will remain, forever will remain
From below, in my seclusion
Look up to the sky to see paper wings and watch them burn


**I like this song because it's very poetic and I like what it's about, kinda sad though :\'(

I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor

by Arctic Monkeys

Stop making the eyes at me, I'll stop making the eyes at you
And what it is that surprises me is that I don't really want you to
And your shoulders are frozen (cold as the night)
Oh, but you're an explosion (you're dynamite)
Your name isn't Rio, but I don't care for sand
And lighting the fuse might result in a bang, b-b-bang, go!

I bet that you look good on the dancefloor
I don't know if you're looking for romance or
I don't know what you're looking for
Well, I bet that you look good on the dancefloor
Dancing to electro-pop like a robot from 1984
From 1984!

I wish you'd stop ignoring me, because it's sending me to despair
Without a sound, yeah, you're calling me, and I don't think it's very fair
That your shoulders are frozen (cold as the night)
Oh, but you're an explosion (you're dynamite)
Your name isn't Rio, but I don't care for sand
Lighting the fuse might result in a bang, b-b-bang, go!

I bet that you look good on the dancefloor
I don't know if you're looking for romance or
I don't know what you're looking for
Well, I bet that you look good on the dancefloor
Dancing to electro-pop like a robot from 1984
From 1984!

Oh, there ain't no love, no Montagues or Capulets
Are just banging tunes and DJ sets and...
Dirty dancefloors, and dreams of naughtiness!

Well, I bet that you look good on the dancefloor
I don't know if you're looking for romance or
I don't know what you're looking for
Well, I bet that you look good on the dancefloor
Dancing to electro-pop like a robot from 1984
From 1984!

Down in the Park by Gary Numan... I love the imagery.

Down in the park
Where the Machmen meet the machines
play `kill-by-numbers'
Down in the park with a friend called `five'
I was in a car crash
Or was it the war
But I've never been quite the same
Little white lies like "I was there"

Come to "zom-zom's" a place to eat
Like it was built in one day
You can watch the humans
Trying to run

Oh look there's a rape machine
I'd go outside if he'd look the other way
You wouldn't believe
The things they do

(CHORUS)
"We are not lovers
We are not romantics
We are here to serve you"

Down to the park
Where the chant is "death,
death until the sun cries morning"
Down in the park with friends of mine

(CHORUS)
"We are not lovers
We are not romantics
We are here to serve you"
A different face but the words never change.....
