View Full Version : Favorite Song Lyrics: Light Side Edition!

03-19-2009, 09:09 PM
It's time to resurrect my old "Favorite Song Lyrics" thread, this time with a twist: this version is specifically for songs about the lighter side of life, songs that are upbeat and/or uplifting, about love, sex, humor... you know, happy thoughts! :)

No angst-ridden, bleak, depressing songs allowed in this thread, nosiree! (But fear not, they have their own thread (http://www.customerssuck.com/board/showthread.php?p=524430)! ;))

First on my list is what I consider to be THE BEST reason to see the movie version of Douglas Adams' The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy! Regardless of what you think of the rest of the movie, there can be no denying the fact that the movie's opening scene is absolutely BRILLIANT and is chock full of the same inspired lunacy as the books that inspired it! The opening sequence ALONE was worth the price of admission! :D

To sum up for those that aren't familiar with the story: As the story begins, the Earth is about to be destroyed to make way for a new hyperspace bypass, and mankind (who is, after all, only the 3rd most intelligent species on the planet!) is totally oblivious to this fact. So, shortly before leaving the planet under their own power, the planet's 2nd most intelligent species (http://dolphins.mysouthwest.com.au/_content/images/Dolphins/K48%20-%20Bunbury%20Dolphins.jpg) attempts to send us a final message, which is this:"So Long and Thanks For All the Fish" (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojydNb3Lrrs)

So long and thanks for all the fish
So sad that it should come to this
We tried to warn you all, but oh dear
You may not share our intellect,
which might explain your disrespect
for all the natural wonders that grow around you

So long, so long and thanks
for all the fish

The world's about to be destroyed
There's no point getting all annoyed
Lie back and let the planet dissolve around you
Despite those nets of tuna fleets,
we thought that most of you were sweet
Especially tiny tots and your pregnant women

So long, so long, so long, so long, so long
So long, so long, so long, so long, so long
So long, so long and thanks
for all the fish

If I had just one last wish,
I would like a tasty fish
If we could just change one thing,
we would all have learnt to sing

Come, one and all
Man and mammal
Side by side in
life's great gene pool

Ooh ooh
Ah ah

So long, so long, so long, so long, so long
So long, so long, so long, so long, so long
So long, so long and thanks
for all the fish!Whenever I'm having a really bad day, I can fire up the DVD of the movie, watch that scene, and I'll be smiling, maybe even LAUGHING, in no time! I like to think that somewhere, Douglas Adams looked down, saw that musical number, and smiled as well. :)

More to come from me later, but in the meantime, I can't wait to see what the rest of you post. :)

Always Look on the Bright Side of Life
By Eric Idle

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...

And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing.

And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.

So always look on the bright side of death
Just before you draw your terminal breath

Life's a piece of shit
When you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.
You'll see it's all a show
Keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.

And always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the right side of life...
(Come on guys, cheer up!)
Always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the bright side of life...
(Worse things happen at sea, you know.)
Always look on the bright side of life...
(I mean - what have you got to lose?)
(You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing.
What have you lost? Nothing!)
Always look on the right side of life...

There's a hard moon risin' on the streets tonight
There's a reckless feeling in your heart as you head out tonight
Through the concrete canyons to the midtown light
Where the latest neon promises are burning bright
Past the open windows on the darker streets
Where unseen angry voices flash and children cry
Past the phony posers with their worn out lines
The tired new money dressed to the nines
The low life dealers with their bad designs
And the dilettantes with their open minds
You're out on the town, safe in the crowd
Ready to go for the ride
Searching the eyes, looking for clues
There's no way you can hide
The fire inside
Well you've been to the clubs and the discotheques
Where they deal one another from the bottom of a deck of promises
Where the cautious loners and emotional wrecks
Do an acting stretch as a way to hide the obvious
And the lights go down and they dance real close
And for one brief instant they pretend they're safe and warm
Then the beat gets louder and the mood is gone
The darkness scatters as the lights flash on
They hold one another just a little too long
And they move apart and then move on
On to the street, on to the next
Safe in the knowledge that they tried
Faking the smile, hiding the pain
Never satisfied
The fire inside
Fire inside
Now the hour is late and he thinks you're asleep
You listen to him dress and you listen to him leave
like you knew he would
You hear his car pull away in the street
Then you move to the door and you lock it when
he's gone for good
Then you walk to the window and stare at the moon
Riding high and lonesome through a starlit sky
And it comes to you how it all slips away
Youth and beauty are gone one day
No matter what you dream or feel or say
It ends in dust and disarray
Like wind on the plains, sand through the glass
Waves rolling in with the tide
Dreams die hard and we watch them erode
But we cannot be denied
The fire inside
Fire Inside

Burning you up

burning you up

(Chorus)
Ya Boom - Pine...apple wine - ya dollar fifty all da time
Ya Boom - Pine...apple wine - ya dollar fifty all da time
Turn 'round and let me see ya
Turn 'round and let me see ya
Ya Boom - Pine...apple wine - ya dollar fifty all da time

I got a new dance
Hot like pepper-pot
From the old to the young
Gonna make your body rock

It's really easy - easy peazy
You can do it anywhere
Jump around like you don't care - singin'
(Chorus)

A young man broke his leg
Old granny broke her back
And Jimmy got a migrane from a falling coconut
The doctor was confused
He has a solution - a bottle of the apple wine was his prescription

It cured da broke leg
It cured da bad back
It cured da migrane - even cured da heart attack

The people started jumping
'Cause they were fellin' fine
The city's greatest sin was the boom-pine-wine
(Chorus)

Brother bought a coconut, he bought it for a dime
His sister had another one, she paid it for a lime.
She put the lime in the coconut, she drank them both up
She put the lime in the coconut, she drank them both up

And said, "Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take,

Beautiful Day - U2

The heart is a bloom, shoots up through stony ground
But there's no room, no space to rent in this town
You're out of luck and the reason that you had to care,
The traffic is stuck and you're not moving anywhere.
You thought you'd found a friend to take you out of this place
Someone you could lend a hand in return for grace

It's a beautiful day, the sky falls
And you feel like it's a beautiful day
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away

You're on the road but you've got no destination
You're in the mud, in the maze of her imagination
You love this town even if it doesn't ring true
You've been all over and it's been all over you

It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away
It's a beautiful day
Don't let it get away

Touch me, take me to that other place
Teach me, I know I'm not a hopeless case

See the world in green and blue
See China right in front of you
See the canyons broken by cloud
See the tuna fleets clearing the sea out
See the bedouin fires at night
See the oil fields at first light
See the bird with a leaf in her mouth
After the flood all the colours came out
It was a beautiful day
A beautiful day
Don't let it get away

Touch me, take me to that other place
Reach me, I know Iím not a hopeless case

What you don't have you don't need it now
What you don't know you can feel it somehow
What you don't have you don't need it now
You don't need it now, you don't need it now
Beautiful day

She said she found someone who's gonna understand
She don't need nobody to be her man
She don't need nobody to be her man

She has a girlfriend now
She has a girlfriend now
She has a girlfriend now, she said

She said she found someone who's gonna hold her hand

She dont need nobody to be her man

She has a girlfriend now
She has a girlfriend now
She has a girlfriend now, she said
"Guys don't do no more for me"

Well I never thought it would end like this
Just because I've got no tits
I'll shave my legs
I'll wear a bra
I'd even cut my penis off for you
(oh, that's so sweet!)

She has a girlfriend now
(She has a girlfriend now)

We danced to this song at our wedding. :)

Why are there so many songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side?
Rainbows are visions, but only illusions,
And rainbows have nothing to hide.
So we've been told and some choose to believe it
I know they're wrong, wait and see.
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers and me.

Who said that every wish would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star?
Somebody thought of that, and someone believed it,
And look what it's done so far.
What's so amazing that keeps us stargazing
And what do we think we might see?
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers, and me.

All of us under its spell,
We know that it's probably magic...

... Have you been half asleep? And have you heard voices?
I've heard them calling my name.
... Is this the sweet sound that calls the young sailors?
The voice might be one and the same
I've heard it too many times to ignore it
It's something that I'm s'posed to be...
Someday we'll find it, the rainbow connection,
The lovers, the dreamers, and me.

Laa, da daa dee da daa daa,
La laa la la laa dee daa doo...

And this one, from the musical "Hedwig and the Angry Inch", never fails to make me smile:

Wig in a Box

On nights like this
when the world's a bit amiss
and the lights go down
across the trailer park
I get down
I feel had
I feel on the verge of going mad
and then it's time to punch the clock

I put on some make-up
and turn up the tape deck
and pull the wig down on my head
suddenly I'm Miss Midwest
Midnight Checkout Queen
until I head home
and put myself to bed

I look back on where I'm from
look at the woman I've become
and the strangest things
seem suddenly routine
I look up from my Vermouth on the rocks
a gift-wrapped wig still in the box
of towering velveteen.

I put on some make-up
and some LaVern Baker
and pull the wig down from the shelf
Suddenly I'm Miss Beehive 1963
Until I wake up
And turn back to myself

Some girls they have natural ease
they wear it any way they please
with their French flip curls
and perfumed magazines
Wear it up
Let it down
This is the best way that I've found
to be the best you've ever seen

I put on some make-up
and turn up the eight-track
I'm pulling the wig down from the shelf
Suddenly I'm Miss Farrah Fawcett
from TV
until I wake up
and turn back to myself

Shag, bi-level, bob
Dorothy Hammil do,
Sausage curls, chicken wings
It's all because of you
With your blow dried, feather back,
Toni home wave, too
flip, fro, frizz, flop,
It's all because of you
It's all because of you
It's all because of you

I put on some make-up
turn up the eight-track
I'm pulling the wig down from the shelf
Suddenly I'm this punk rock star
of stage and screen
and I ain't never
I'm never turning back

Time For Heroes - Meat Loaf & Brian May

We search for an answer,
And when it appears
We can challenge the world with our sweat and our tears.
Through winning and losing,
The brave never bend,
The hero keeps fighting, standing tall in the end.

Time can change anything...and mend any fall.
The moment of truth is facing us all,
It's time for the hero to stand tall.

It's a time for heroes,
Time to answer the call,
It's a time for the hero in us all.

We carry the flame
For all to see
The fire and the passion, of what we can be.
Sometimes we must fight,
But we never bend
The hero keeps fighting, standing tall in the end.

Love can change anything...it's inside of us all
To reach out a hand whenever we fall.
It's time for the hero to stand tall.

It's a time for heroes,
Time to answer the call,
It's a time for the hero to stand tall.
It's a time for heroes,
When our back's to the wall
It's a time for the hero...in us all

I Don't Even Know Your Name - Alan Jackson

Well I was sitting in a roadhouse down on highway 41
You were wiping off some ketchup on a table that was done
I knw you didn't see me, I was in a corner booth
Of course you weren't my waitress mine was missing her front tooth
So I flagged you down for coffee
But I couldn't say a thing
But I'm in love with you baby and I don't even know your name

I'm in love with you baby, I don't even know your name
I've never been to good at all these sexual games
So maybe it's just better if we leave it this way
I'm in love with you baby and I don't even know your name

So I ordered straight tequila, a little courage in a shot
I asked you for a date and then I asked to tie the knot
I got a little wasted, yeah I went a little far
But I finally got to hug you when you helped me to my car
The last thing I remember I heard myself say
I'm in love with you baby, I don't even know your name

I'm in love with you baby, I don't even know your name
I've never been to good at all these sexual games
So maybe it's just better if we leave it this way
I'm in love with you baby and I don't even know your name

The next thing I remember, I was hearing wedding bells
Standing by a woman in a long white lacy veil
I raised the veil, she smiled at me without her left front tooth
And I said 'Where the heel am I and just who the hell are you?'
She said 'I was your waitress and our last name's now the same'
'Cause I;m married to you baby and I don't even know your name

I'm married to a waitress, I don't even know her name
I've never been to good at all these sexual games
I never thought my love life would quite turn out this way
Hey I'm married to a waitress and I don't even know her name

I heard this song last night, after not hearing it for years. It's simple, a little dopey, but it makes me smile and want to dance to it for hours:

Dancing in the Moonlight (NOT the Thin Lizzy song)

We get it on most every night
when that moon is big and bright
its a supernatural delight
everybodys dancing in the moonlight

everybody here is out of sight
they dont bark and they dont bite
they keep things loose they keep it tight
everybodys dancing in the moonlight

dancing in the moonlight
everybodys feeling warm and bright
its such a fine and natural sight
everybodys dancing in the moonlight

we like our fun and we never fight
you cant dance and stay uptight
its a supernatural delight
everybody was dancing in the moonlight

dancing in the moonlight
everybodys feeling warm and bright
its such a fine and natural sight
everybodys dancing in the moonlight

we get in on most every night
and when that moon is big and bright
its a supernatural delight
everybodys dancing in the moonlight

dancing in the moonlight
everybodys feeling warm and bright
its such a fine and natural sight
everybodys dancing in the moonlight

Honey is sweet,

And I can feel it on my body,
so emotional.

I'm a passenger.
I'm a victim of a hot love messenger.

Aqua - Cartoon Heroes

We are what we're supposed to be
Illusions of your fantasy
All dots and lines that speak and say
What we do is what you wish to do


We are the color symphony
We do the things you wanna see
Frame by frame, to the extreme


Our friends are so unreasonable
They do the unpredictable
All dots lines that speak and say
What we do is what you wish to do


It's all an orchestra of strings
Doin' unbelievable things
Frame by frame, to the extreme
One by one, we're makin' it fun


We are the Cartoon Heroes - oh-oh-oh
We are the ones who're gonna last forever
We came out of a crazy mind - oh-oh-oh
And walked out on a piece of paper


Here comes Spiderman, arachnophobian
Welcome to the toon town party
Here comes Superman, from never-neverland
Welcome to the toon town party


We learned to run at speed of light
And to fall down from any height
It's true, but just remember that
What we do is what you just can't do


And all the worlds of craziness
A bunch of stars that's chasing us
Frame by frame, to the extreme
One by one, we're makin' it fun


We are the Cartoon Heroes - oh-oh-oh
We are the ones who're gonna last forever
We came out of a crazy mind - oh-oh-oh
And walked out on a piece of paper


Here comes Spiderman, arachnophobian
Welcome to the toon town party
Here comes Superman, from never-neverland
Welcome to the toon town party


You think we're so mysterious
Don't take us all too serious
Be original, and remember that
What we do is what you just can't do


What we do is what you just can't do
What we do is what you just can't do
What we do is what you just can't do
What we do is what you just can't do


We are the Cartoon Heroes - oh-oh-oh
We are the ones who're gonna last forever
We came out of a crazy mind - oh-oh-oh
And walked out on a piece of paper


There's still more to come
And everyone will be
Welcomed at the
Toon - Toon
Town - Town
Party

They Might Be Giants - Particle Man

Particle man, particle man
Doing the things a particle can
What's he like? It's not important
Particle man

Is he a dot, or is he a speck?
When he's underwater does he get wet?
Or does the water get him instead?
Nobody knows, Particle man

Triangle man, Triangle man
Triangle man hates particle man
They have a fight, Triangle wins
Triangle man

Universe man, Universe man
Size of the entire universe man
Usually kind to smaller man
Universe man

He's got a watch with a minute hand,
Millenium hand and an eon hand
When they meet it's a happy land
Powerful man, universe man

Person man, person man
Hit on the head with a frying pan
Lives his life in a garbage can
Person man

Is he depressed or is he a mess?
Does he feel totally worthless?
Who came up with person man?
Degraded man, person man

Triangle man, triangle man
Triangle man hates person man
They have a fight, triangle wins
Triangle man

They Might Be Giants - Experimental Film

The color of infinity
Inside an empty glass
I'm squinting my eye
And turning off and on and on
and off the light

It's for this experimental film
Which nobody knows about and which
I'm still figuring out what's going to go
In my experimental film

Yeah, you're all gonna be in this experimental film
And even though I can't explain it
I already know how great it's

I already know the ending
It's the part that makes your face implode
I don't know what makes your face implode
But that's the way the movie ends

And in my experimental film
Which nobody knows about but which
I'm still figuring out your face implode
At my experimental film

Yeah, you're all gonna be in this experimental film
And even though I can't explain it
I already know how great it--
Even though I can't explain it
I already know how great it's

The Darkness - I Believe in a Thing Called Love

Can't explain all the feelings that you're making me feel
My heart's in overdrive and you're behind the steering wheel

Touching you, touching me
touching you, god you're touching me

I believe in a thing called love
Just listen to the rhythm of my heart
There's a chance we could make it now
We'll be rocking 'til the sun goes down
I believe in a thing called love
Ooh!

I wanna kiss you every minute, every hour, every day
You got me in a spin but everythin' is A.OK!

Touching you, touching me
touching you, god you're touching me

I believe in a thing called love
Just listen to the rhythm of my heart
There's a chance we could make it now
We'll be rocking 'til the sun goes down
I believe in a thing called love
Ooh! Guitar!

Touching you, touching me
touching you, god you're touching me

I believe in a thing called love
Just listen to the rhythm of my heart
There's a chance we could make it now
We'll be rocking 'til the sun goes down
I believe in a thing called love

It's My Life - Bon Jovi

This ain't a song for the broken-hearted
No silent prayer for faith-departed
I ain't gonna be just a face in the crowd
You're gonna hear my voice when I shout it out loud

Chorus:
It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive (it's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just wanna live while I'm alive
It's my life

This is for the ones who stood their ground
For Tommy and Gina who never backed down
Tomorrow's getting harder make no mistake
Luck ain't even lucky
Got to make your own breaks

Chorus:
It's my life
It's now or never
I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive (it's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just wanna live while I'm alive
It's my life

Better stand tall when calling you out
Don't bend, don't break, baby don't back down

Chorus:
It's my life
And it's now or never
'Cause I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive (it's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive
It's my life!

Chorus:
It's my life
And it's now or never
'Cause I ain't gonna live forever
I just want to live while I'm alive (it's my life)
My heart is like an open highway
Like Frankie said
I did it my way
I just want to live while I'm alive
'Cause it's my life!

The video to this song cracks me up. XD As does the video to the song after this one.

1985 - Bowling For Soup

Woo Hoo Hooooo!

Woo hoo hooooo!
hoo hooooooooo!
Debbie just hit the wall
She never had it all
One Prozac a day
Husband's a CPA
Her dreams went out the door
When she turned 24.
Only been with one man
What happened to her plan?

She was gonna be an actress
She was gonna be a star
She was gonna shake her ass(ass)
On the hood of Whitesnake's car
Her yellow SUV is now the enemy
Looks at her average life
And nothing, has been...
all right since

Bruce Springsteen, Madonna
Way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
Cuz she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1985

Woo Hoo Hooooo!
(1985)
Woo Hoo Hooooo!

She’s seen all the classics
She knows every line
"Breakfast Club", "Pretty In Pink"
Even "St. Elmo's Fire"
She rocked out to Wham!
Not a big Limp Bizkit fan
Thought she'd get a hand
On a member of Duran Duran

Where's the mini-skirt made of snakeskin?
And who's the other guy that's singing in Van Halen?
When did reality become T.V.?
What ever happened to sitcoms, game shows,
(on the radio)

Springsteen, Madonna
way before Nirvana
There was U2 and Blondie
And music still on MTV
Her two kids in high school
They tell her that she's uncool
Cuz she's still preoccupied
With 19, 19, 1985

Woo Hoo Hooooo!

She hates time, make it stop
When did Motley Crue become classic rock?
And when did Ozzy become an actor?
Please make this stop, stop, STOP(tick tick tick) and bring back

Gunter glieben glauchen globen

Give it to me baby. Uh-huh. Uh-huh.
Give it to me baby. Uh-huh. Uh-huh.
Give it to me baby. Uh-huh. Uh-huh.
And all the girlies say I'm pretty fly
For a white guy.
Uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, cinco, seis.

You know it's kind of hard
Just to get along today.
Our subject isn't cool,
But he fakes it anyway.
He may not have a clue;
And he may not have style.
But everything he lacks
Well he makes up in denial.

So don't debate, a player straight
You know he really doesn't get it anyway.
He's gonna play the field, and keep it real.
For you no way, for you no way.
So if you don't rate, just overcompensate.
At least you'll know you can always go on Ricki Lake.
The world needs wannabe's.
So (Hey! Hey!) do that brand new thing.

Give it to me baby. Uh-huh. Uh-huh.
Give it to me baby. Uh-huh. Uh-huh.
Give it to me baby. Uh-huh. Uh-huh.
And all the girlies say I'm pretty fly
For a white guy.

He needs some cool tunes
Not just any will suffice.
But they didn't have Ice Cube
So he bought Vanilla Ice.
Now cruising in his Pinto,
He sees homies as he pass.
But if he looks twice
They're gonna kick his lily ass.

So don't debate, a player straight
You know he really doesn't get it anyway.
He's gonna play the field, and keep it real.
For you no way, for you no way.
So if you don't rate, just overcompensate.
At least you'll know you can always go on Ricki Lake.
The world loves wannabe's.
So (Hey! Hey!) do that brand new thing

Now he's getting a tattoo.
Yeah he's gettin' ink done.
He asked for a '13',
But they drew a '31'.
Friends say he's trying too hard
And he's not quite hip.
But in his own mind
He's the, he's the dopest trip.

Give it to me baby. Uh-huh. Uh-huh.
Give it to me baby. Uh-huh. Uh-huh.
Give it to me baby. Uh-huh. Uh-huh.
Uno, dos, tres, cuatro, cinco, cinco, seis.

So don't debate, a player straight
You know he really doesn't get it anyway.

For you no way, for you no way.
So if you don't rate, just overcompensate.
At least you'll know you can always go on Ricki Lake.

Oh the world loves wannabe's.
So let's get some more wannabe's.
And (Hey! Hey!) do that brand new thing.

Presidents of the United States - Peaches
Movin' to the country,
gonna eat a lot of peaches
Movin' to the country,
Gonna eat me a lot of peaches
Movin' to the country,
gonna eat a lot of peaches
Movin' to the country,
gonna eat a lot of peaches

Peaches come from a can,
they were put there by a man
In a factory downtown
If I had my little way,
I'd eat peaches every day
Sun-soakin' bulges in the shade

Take a little nap where the roots all twist
Squished a rotten peach in my fist
And dreamed about you, woman,
I poked my finger down inside
Make a little room for an ant to hide
Nature's candy in my hand or can or a pie

Millions of peaches, peaches for me
Millions of peaches, peaches for free

Look out!

Ricky Martin - Livin' La Vida Loca

...mock me and die. :p

She's into superstitions black cats and voodoo dolls.
I feel a premonition that girl's gonna make me fall.
She's into new sensations new kicks in the candle light.
She's got a new addiction for every day and night.

She'll make you take your clothes off and go dancing in the rain.
She'll make you live her crazy life but she'll take away your pain
like a bullet to your brain. Come On!

[CHORUS:]
Upside, inside out she's livin la vida loca
She'll push and pull you down, livin la vida loca
Her lips are devil red and her skin's the color mocha
She will wear you out livin la vida loca Come On!
Livin la vida loca, Come on!
She's livin la vida loca.

Woke up in New York City in a funky cheap hotel
She took my heart and she took my money
she must've slipped me a sleeping pill
She never drinks the water and makes you order French Champagne
Once you've had a taste of her you'll never be the same
Yeah, she'll make you go insane.

[CHORUS]

She'll make you take your clothes off and go dancing in the rain.
She'll make you live her crazy life
but she'll take away your pain like a bullet to your brain. Come On!

Warren Zevon--Ourselves To Know

We left Constantinople in 1099
To restore the one true cross was in this heart of mine
To bring it to Jerusalem and then sail home to Rhodes
We took that holy ride ourselves to know
We took that holy ride ourselves to know

Everyone got famous
Everyone got rich
Everyone went off the rails and ended in the ditch
Whoa, we had to take that long hard road to see where it would go
Yeah, we took that holy ride ourselves to know
We took that holy ride ourselves to know

Ooooooh...

Now if you make a pilgrimage, I hope you'll find your Grail
Be loyal to the ones you leave with, even if you fail
And be chivalrous to strangers you meet along the road
As you take that holy ride yourselves to know
You take that holy ride yourselves to know

Warren Zevon--Mr. Bad Example

I started as an altar boy working at the church
Learning all my holy moves and doing some research
Which led me to a cash box labeled "Children's Fund"
I'd leave the change and tuck the bills inside my cummerbund

I got a part-time job at my father's carpet store
Laying tackless stripping and housewives by the score
I loaded up their furniture and took it to Spokane
And auctioned off every last naugahyde devan

I'm very well acquainted with the seven deadly sins
I keep a busy schedule trying to fit them in
I'm proud to be a glutton and I don't have time for sloth
I'm greedy and I'm angry and I don't care who I cross

I'm Mr. Bad Example, intruder in the dirt
I like to have a good time and I don't care who gets hurt
I'm Mr. Bad Example--take a look at me
I'll live to be a hundred and go down in infamy

Of course I went to law school and took a law degree
And counseled all my clients to plead insanity
Then I worked in hair replacement swindling the bald
Where very few are chosen and fewer still are called

Then on to Monte Carlo to play chemin de fer
I threw away the fortune I made transplanting hair
I put my last few francs down on a prostitute
Who took me up to her room to perform the flag salute

Whereupon I stole her passport and her wig
And headed for the airport and a midnight flight, you dig?
Fourteen hours later I was down in Adelaide
Looking through the want ads sipping Foster's in the shade

I opened up an agency somewhere down the line
To hire Aboriginals to work the opal mines
But I attached their wages and took a whopping cut
And whisked away their workman's comp and pauperized the lot

I'm Mr. Bad Example, intruder in the dirt
I like to have a good time and I don't care who gets hurt
I'm Mr. Bad Example--take a look at me
I'll live to be a hundred and go down in infamy

I bought a first class ticket on Malaysian Air
And landed in Sri Lanka none the worse for wear
I'm thinking of retiring from all my dirty deals
I'll see you in the next life--wake me up for meals!

The Beatles - Yellow Submarine

In the town where I was born
Lived a man who sailed to sea
And he told us of his life
In the land of submarines
So we sailed up to the sun
'Till we found a sea of green
And we lived beneath the waves
In our yellow submarine

We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine

And our friends are all aboard
Many more of them live next door
And the band begins to play

We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine

(Full speed ahead Mr. Boatswain, full speed ahead
Full speed ahead it is, Sgt.
Cut the cable, drop the cable
Aye, Sir, aye
Captain, captain)

As we live a life of ease
Every one of us has all we need
Sky of blue and sea of green
In our yellow submarine

We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine
We all live in a yellow submarine
Yellow submarine, yellow submarine

Hanson - Man from Milwaukee

It started at a bus stop in the middle of nowhere
Sitting beside me was a man with no hair
From the look on his face to the size of his toes
He'd come from a place that nobody knows

Oh, maybe I'm hallucinating
Hyperventilating
Letting this big-toed bald man sitting here tell me about the sky
Maybe I'm hallucinating
Hyperventilating
If you asked me now then I couldn't tell you why

I've been sitting here too long
By a man from Milwaukee
He's talking too long
On his yellow walkie talkie
He's talking to Mars
But I think he's wacky
He says they'll come get him
Come get him some day

He says that where he's from is called Albertane
There they use more than ten percent of their brain
But you couldn't tell it from they way they behave
They run around in underwear and they never shave

Oh, maybe I'm hallucinating
Hyperventilating
Letting this big-toed bald man sitting here tell me about the sky
Maybe I'm hallucinating
Hyperventilating
If you asked me now then I couldn't tell you why

I've been sitting here too long
By a man from Milwaukee
He's talking too long
On his yellow walkie talkie
He's talking to Mars
But I think he's wacky
He says they'll come get him
Come get him some day

This is Mother Bird calling Baby Bird
Baby Bird come in, come in Baby Bird
For the love of Pete come in
This is Baby Bird, sorry I was watching Court TV
Do you copy? Do you copy?
Of course we copy, 24 hours a day, in color

You wouldn't believe me if I told you the rest
The man sitting by me who was just barely dressed
Flew off to Milwaukee or perhaps Albertane
And left me at the bus stop, just barely insane

And, oh, maybe I'm hallucinating
Hyperventilating
If you asked me now then I couldn't tell you why

I've been sitting here too long
Thinking 'bout Milwaukee
I've been talking too long
On my yellow walkie talkie
I'm talking to Mars
You might think that I'm wacky
I know they'll come get me
Come get me some day
I know they'll come get me
And take me away
I know they'll come get me
Come get me some day
If not tomorrow
Then maybe today

Sir Duke -- Stevie Wonder

Music is a world within itself
With a language we all understand
With an equal opportunity
For all to sing, dance and clap their hands
But just because a record has a groove
Don't make it in the groove
But you can tell right away at letter A
When the people start to move

They can feel it all over
They can feel it all over people
They can feel it all over
They can feel it all over people

Music knows it is and always will
Be one of the things that life just won't quit
But here are some of music's pioneers
That time will not allow us to forget
For there's Basie, Miller, Sachimo
And the king of all Sir Duke
And with a voice like Ella's ringing out
There's no way the band can lose

You can feel it all over
You can feel it all over people
You can feel it all over
You can feel it all over people

You can feel it all over
You can feel it all over people
You can feel it all over
You can feel it all over people

You can feel it all over
You can feel it all over people
You can feel it all over
You can feel it all over people

You can feel it all over
You can feel it all over people
You can feel it all over
I can feel it all over-all over now people

Can't you feel it all over
Come on let's feel it all over people
You can feel it all over
Everybody-all over people

You ask your mom "please?" but she still says "NO!"
You miss two classes and no homework

Now your mom threw away your best porno mag (Busted)

Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds - The Beatles

{VERSE 1}
Picture yourself in a boat on a river,
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies.
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes.

Cellophane flowers of yellow and green,
Towering over your head.
Look for the girl with the sun in her eyes,
And she's gone.

{CHORUS}
Lucy in the sky with diamonds,
Lucy in the sky with diamonds,
Lucy in the sky with diamonds,
Ah... Ah...

{VERSE 2}
Follow her down to a bridge by a fountain,
Where rocking horse people eat marshmallow pies.
Everyone smiles as you drift past the flowers,
That grow so incredibly high.

Newspaper taxis appear on the shore,
Waiting to take you away.
Climb in the back with your head in the clouds,
And you're gone.

{CHORUS}

Picture yourself on a train in a station,
With plasticine porters with looking glass ties.
Suddenly someone is there at the turnstile,
The girl with kaleidoscope eyes.

{CHORUS REPEATED AND FADED}

"Blue (Da Ba De)"

Yo listen up here's a story
About a little guy that lives in a blue world
And all day and all night and everything he sees
Is just blue like him inside and outside
Blue his house with a blue little window
And a blue corvette
And everything is blue for him and hisself
And everybody around
Cos he ain't got nobody to listen to

I'm blue da ba dee da ba die...

I have a blue house with a blue window.
Blue is the colour of all that I wear.
Blue are the streets and all the trees are too.
I have a girlfriend and she is so blue.
Blue are the people here that walk around,
Blue like my corvette, it's standing outside.
Blue are the words I say and what I think.
Blue are the feelings that live inside me.

I'm blue da ba dee da ba die...

I have a blue house with a blue window.
Blue is the colour of all that I wear.
Blue are the streets and all the trees are too.
I have a girlfriend and she is so blue.
Blue are the people here that walk around,
Blue like my corvette, it's standing outside.
Blue are the words I say and what I think.
Blue are the feelings that live inside me.

I'm blue da ba dee da ba die...

Inside and outside blue his house
With the blue little window and a blue corvette
And everything is blue for him and hisself
And everybody around cause he aint got
Nobody to listen to

I'm blue da ba dee da ba die...

I'm blue (if I was green I would die)

Highway To Hell - AC/DC

Living easy
Living free
Season ticket on a one way ride
Asking nothing
Leave me be
Taking everything in my stride
Don't need reason

Ain't nothin' I would rather do
Going down
Party time
My friends are gonna be there too, eh

I'm on a highway to hell
On the highway to hell
Highway to hell
I'm on the highway to hell

No stop signs
Speed limit
Nobody's gonna slow me down
Like a wheel
Gonna spin it
Nobody's gonna mess me 'round
Hey Satan
Payin' my dues
Playin' in a rockin' band
Hey momma
Look at me
I'm on my way to the Promised Land, woh

I'm on the highway to hell
Highway to hell
I'm on the highway to hell
Highway to hell

Karma Chameleon (http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x1328k_boy-george-karma-chameleon_music) by Boy George. This was the first music video I ever saw.

Desert loving in your eyes all the way
If I listen to your lies would you say
I'm a man without conviction
I'm a man who doesnt know
How to sell a contradiction
You come and go
You come and go

Karma karma karma karma karma chameleon
You come and go
You come and go
Loving would be easy if your colors were like my dream
Red, gold and green
Red, gold and green

Didn't hear your wicked words every day
And you used to be so sweet I heard you say
That my love was an addiction
When we cling our love is strong
When you go youre gone forever
You string along
You string along

Every day is like a survival
You're my lover not my rival
Every day is like a survival
You're my lover not my rival

I'm a man without conviction
I'm a man who doesnt know
How to sell a contradication
You come and go
You come and go

Kick ass! Another Zevon fan!

Warren Zevon--Macgillicuddy's Reeks
She stood beside my narrow bed
to check my E.K.G.
She shook her pretty little head
At what's become of me
I thought I glimpsed a path that led
Through rhododendron days
And fuchsia nights to the boatshed
In which we two once lay
But she gazed only at my chart
The valleys and the peaks
Brought back the time she broke my heart
In Macgillycuddy's Reeks
But she gazed only at my chart
The valleys and the peaks
Brought back the time she broke my heart
In Macgillycuddy's Reeks
I saw her on Killarney's shore
One morning in July
When I still thought I was a thorn
Trying to find a side
I met her in the little launch
That runs to Innisfallen
Hunched together, haunch to haunch
Trying to keep my balance
But she upset my applecart
She kissed me on the cheek
And I was struck by Cupid's dart
In Macgillycuddy's Reeks
Macgillycuddy's Reeks
Macgillycuddy's Reeks
I was struck by Cupid's dart
In Macgillycuddy's Reeks
She was a systems analyst
For a dot com company
She said, "You think because we've kissed
I'll be yours eternally
I'll sign another pre-nup
And we'll merge our P.L.C.s
That's why most girls go belly-up
In this economy
But when it comes to a jump start
Your forecast's pretty bleak
The NASDAQ goes by dips and starts
Like Macgillycuddy's Reeks
The NASDAQ goes by dips and starts
Like Macgillycuddy's Reeks
She looked only at my chart
The valleys and the peaks
Brought back the time she broke my heart
In Macgillycuddy's Reeks
Macgillycuddy's Reeks
Macgillycuddy's Reeks
That was the time she broke my heart
In Macgillycuddy's Reeks


Dan Bern--Jerusalem
When I tell you that I love you
Don't test my love
Accept my love, don't test my love
Cause maybe I don't love you all that much

Don't ask what kind of music I'm gonna play tonight
Just stay awhile, hear for yourself awhile
And if you must put me in a box, make sure it's a big box
With lots of windows
And a door to walk through
And a nice high chimney
So we can burn burn burn everything that we don't like
And watch the ashes fly up to Heaven
Maybe all the way to India
I'd like that

All the ancient kings came to my door
They said "Do you want to be an ancient king too?"
I said "Oh yes very much
But I think my timing's wrong"
They said "Time is relative
Or did you misread Einstien"
I said "Do you really mean it?"
They said "What do you think we come here for
Our goddamn health or something?"

Everybody's waiting for the Messiah
The Jews are waiting
The Christians are waiting
Oh so are the Muslims
It's like everybody's waiting
They been waiting a long time
I know how I hate to wait
Like even for a bus or something
An important phone call
So I can imagine how darned impatient
Everyone must be getting

So I think it's time now
Time to reveal myself
I am the Messiah
I am the Messiah

Yes I think you heard me right
I am the Messiah
I was gonna wait till next year
Build up the suspense a little
Make it a really big surprise
But I could not resist
It's like when you got a really big secret
You're just bursting to tell someone
It was kinda like that with this
And now that I've told you
I feel this great weight lifted
Dr. Nusbaum was right
He's my therapist
He said get it out in the open

I spent ten whole days in Jerusalem
Mmmm Jerusalem sweet Jerusalem
And all I ate was olives
Nothing but olives
Mountains of olives
It was a good ten days
I like olives
I like you too

So When I tell you that I love you
Don't test my love
Accept my love, don't test my love
Cause maybe I don't love you all that much


The Boomtown Rats--Mood Mambo
Somewhere up town late last night around 9 o'clock
There was a black snake crawling up the
Latin American stairs
With his
Slicked
Black
Cockroachair
He was greasy lightning
He was looking for someone else
He said "I know you, you know me, heyheylezzosee.....
I'm in the Mood to Mambo..."
Yeah Bongo Crazy man.
Someone else pulled out a gun and said
"It's a little too late for that sort of thing...
If you think that you're the white/black snake don't go messing with me...
I'm not in the mood"
Somebody else pulled,
I said "Don't be rude....just say Bongo Crazy man"
Yah...been there
Done that
given every tit-for-tat
I'm for me
You're for you
Let's keep it that way
Okay??

Meanwhile
Later on underneath the river
Some frogman slipped
On his black beret
Over his skin
Tight rubbersuit.
Black boots
Looking for a place to go
An dive
Heading for the nearest divers skive
Looking for love
On the cheap rate
Go!
Gonna make it down
with you wan
D'ja see?
He said
"Crazy bongo
I'm in the Mood to Mambo"

Meanwhile
We can watch the come
Dancing competitions
From the Midlands International Danceband Orchestra.
Lifting up their frilly chiffon skirts
They whirled and they twirled
In the late night rustle
To the beat of the muscle
Of the drum man
Inanin
he's picking up the beat on the bongo skin
He was lookin for love underneath that din.
He was looking for me
He was looking for you
Till I walked up to the woman
And I said
(with a shoe)
I'm in the mooooood tooooooo mambo
Bongo Crazy

sssshhhh....
Let me into one of the secrets of this place
Y'see thelate night
Flick knives
glitter through the window
Careful where you go boy
Those knives are
Flick
Flack
Flagging through the dark, man
They're gonna cut
your
skin
I talked to Fr. Murphy and he swore he wouldn't tell
But some of those boys are gonna go to hell
See they're in the Mood to Mambo
Crazy Bongo
cha cha cha
The fog horns scream
And the boys go "Woo Woo"
I don't mind
Cos I'm with you
We go bongo crazy
Yes we do
No we don't
Bongo crazy!!

Rag Doll, livin' in a movie
Hot tramp, Daddy's little cutie

Leavin' by the back door, man
Hot time, get it while it's easy
Don't mind, come on up and see me
Rag Doll, baby won't you do me

I'm feelin' like a bad boy
Mmm, just like a bad boy
I'm rippin' up a Rag Doll
Like throwing away an old toy
Some babe's talkin' real loud
Talkin' all about the new crowd
Try and sell me on an old dream
A new version of the old scene
Speak easy on the grape vine
Keep shufflin' the shoe shine
Old tin lizzy, do it till you're dizzy
Give it all ya got until you're put out of your misery

(Chorus)
Rag Doll, livin' in a movie

Tap dancing on a land mine
Yes I'm movin', Yes I'm movin'
Old tin lizzy, do it till you're dizzy
Give it all ya got until you're put out of your misery

(Chorus)
Rag Doll, livin' in a movie

Sloe gin fizzy

Give it all you got until you're put out of your misery

(Repeat Chorus)

Morningtown Ride (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tx5ZJgGdk0Y) by The Seekers

Train whistle blowing makes a sleepy noise
Underneath their blankets go all the girls and boys

Rocking rolling riding out along the bay
All bound for Morningtown many miles away

Driver at the engine fireman rings the bell
Sand man swings the lantern to show that all is well

Rocking rolling riding out along the bay
All bound for Morningtown many miles away

Maybe it is raining where our train will ride;
All the little travellers are warm and snug inside

Rocking rolling riding out along the bay
All bound for Morningtown many miles away

Somewhere there is sunshine somewhere there is day
Somewhere there is Morningtown many miles away

Rocking rolling riding out along the bay
All bound for Morningtown many miles away

Rocking rolling riding out along the bay
All bound for Morningtown many miles away

Thank God and Greyhound (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tz254irU6tE) by Roy Clark

I've made a small fortune and you squandered it all
You shamed me till I feel about one inch tall
But I thought I loved you and I hoped you would change
So I gritted my teeth and didn't complain.

Now you come to me with a simple goodbye
You tell me you're leaving but you won't tell me why
Now we're here at the station and you're getting on
And all I can think of is thank God and Greyhound you're gone

Thank God and Greyhound you're gone
I didn't know how much longer I could go on
Watching you take the respect out of me
Watching you make a total wreck out of me
That big diesel motor is a-playing my song
Thank God and Greyhound you're gone.

Thank God and Greyhound you're gone
That load on my mind got lighter when you got on
That shiny old bus is a beautiful sight
With the black smoke a-rolling up around the taillight
It may sound kind-a cruel but I've been silent too long
Thank God and Greyhound you're gone.

Thank God and Greyhound you're gone...

Shoots And Ladders - Korn

Ring around the rosies
Pocket full of posies
Ashes, ashes, we all fall down

Nursery rhymes are said, verses in my head
Into my childhood they're spoonfed
Hidden violence revealed, darkness that seems real
Look at the pages that cause all this evil

One, two, buckle my shoe
Three, four, shut the door
Five, six, pick up sticks
Seven, eight, lay them straight

London bridges falling down, falling down, falling down
London bridges falling down, my fair lady

Nick nack patty wack, give a dog a bone
This old man came rolling home
. . . this old man came,
Mary had a little lamb who's fleece was white as snow!

Mary had a little lamb who's fleece was white as snow!
Baa baa black sheep have you any wool
Mary had a little lamb who's fleece was white as snow!
Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full
Mary had a little lamb who's fleece was white as snow!
Baa baa black sheep have you any wool

Ooh, you make me live
Whatever this world can give to me
It's you, you're all I see
Ooo, you make me live now, honey

Whenever this world is cruel to me
I got you to help me forgive
Ooo, you make me live now, honey

My Monkey
The World of Madness is a lot Bigger than the World of Sane

I had a little monkey
I sent him to the country and I fed him on gingerbread
Along came a choo choo
Knocked my monkey koo koo
And now my monkey's dead
At least he looks that way
But then again don't we all

I'm the Pope, I'm ten times the pope, I'm a fifty times the Pope
But I'm the Pope in the hills and in the mountains

I had a little monkey
I sent him to the country and I fed him on gingerbread
Along came a choo choo
Knocked my monkey koo koo
And now my monkey's dead...
Yeah he's dead...
Poor little monkey

Lying down, on the ground, with his head stuffed under his arms
My monkey my monkey my monkey bought the farm

I play music, people are affected by the music I play
That doesn't mean I direct the traffic
That I put a knife in somebody's hand
Tell them to go kill somebody...

We are our own wicked gods
With little g's and big dicks
Sadistic and constantly inflicting a slow demise

heh heh yeah...

I had a little monkey
I sent him to the country and I fed him on gingerbread
Along came a choo choo
Knocked my monkey koo koo
And now my monkey's dead
Dead... dead my monkeys dead he's dead
Now why why...

Put tonight all four on the floor
When we hit top end you know it feels to slow

Spoof of "You're Beautiful" by James Blunt

My life is brilliant...

What, was I too early? Oh, sorry.
Should I...Do you wanna start over? Or, keep going?
Okay, now? Now?

My life is brilliant
Your life's a joke
You're just pathetic
You're always broke

Your homemade "Star Trek" uniform
really ain't impressin' me
You're sufferin' from delusions of
adequacy

You're pitiful
You're pitiful
You're pitiful
It's true

Never had a date
that you couldn't inflate
And ya smell repulsive too
What a bummer being you

Well you just can't dance
And forget romance
Everybody you know still calls ya
Farty Pants

But you always have a job
well, I mean
As long as you still can work
that Slurpee machine

You're pitiful
You're pitiful
You're pitiful
It's true

You're half undressed
Eatin' chips off your chest
While you're playin' "Halo 2"
No one's classier than you

Lalala la
Lalala la
Lalala la Loser

You're pitiful
You're pitiful
You're pitiful

One of my favorite Ozzy Osbourne songs, a great little tune from his album Ozzmosis:"I Just Want You" by Ozzy Osbourne (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zyup4uVJTlE)

There are no unlockable doors
There are no unwinnable wars
There are no unrightable wrongs,
or unsingable songs

There are no unbeatable odds
There are no believable gods
There are no unnamable names
Shall I say it again, yeah

There are no impossible dreams
There are no invisible seams
Each night when the day is through,
I don't ask much

I just want you
I just want you

There are no uncriminal crimes
There are no unrhymable rhymes
There are no identical twins,
or forgivable sins

There are no incurable ills
There are no unkillable thrills
One thing you know is true,
I don't ask much

I just want you
I just want you
I just want you
I just want you

I'm sick and tired of being sick and tired
I used to go to bed so high and wired, yeah - yeah, yeah, yeah
I think I'll buy myself some plastic water
I guess I should have married Lennon's daughter, yeah - yeah, yeah, yeah

There are no unachievable goals
There are no unsavable souls
No legitimate kings or queens,
do you know what I mean? Yeah

There are no indisputable truths
And there ain't no fountain of youth
Each night when the day is through,
I don't ask much

I just want you
I just want you
I just want you
I just want you
I just want you
I just want you
Yeah, yeah, yeah

One of the all-time great songs of the 1980s..."Power Of Love" by Huey Lewis and the News (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=feFKbcIQScs)

The power of love is a curious thing
Make a one man weep, make another man sing
Change a hawk to a little white dove
More than a feeling, that's the power of love

Tougher than diamonds, rich like cream
Stronger and harder than a bad girl's dream
Make a bad one good, make a wrong one right
Power of love will keep you home at night

You don't need money, don't take fame
Don't need no credit card to ride this train
It's strong and it's sudden and it's cruel sometimes,
but it might just save your life
That's the power of love
That's the power of love

First time you feel it, it might make you sad
Next time you feel it, it might make you mad
But you'll be glad baby, when you've found
that's the power makes the world go 'round

And it don't take money, don't take fame
Don't need no credit card to ride this train
It's strong and it's sudden, it can be cruel sometimes,
but it might just save your life

They say that all in love is fair,
yeah, but you don't care
But you'll know what to do
when it gets hold of you
And with a little help from above,
you feel the power of love
You feel the power of love
Can you feel it?
Mmm-hmmm

It don't take money and it don't take fame
Don't need no credit card to ride this train
Tougher than diamonds and stronger than steel
You won't feel nothin', 'til you feel,
you feel the power, just feel the power of love
That's the power, that's the power of love
You feel the power of love
You feel the power of love
Feel the power of love:cool:

This is my favorite song about being in a long-distance relationship, very powerful stuff..."Here Without You" by 3 Doors Down (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-TPeR8Aq6BQ)

A hundred days have made me older
since the last time that I saw your pretty face
A thousand lies have made me colder
and I don't think I can look at this the same
But all the miles that separate,
they disappear now when I'm dreaming of your face

I'm here without you, baby,
but you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you, baby,
and I dream about you all the time
I'm here without you, baby,
but you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight,
there's only you and me, yeah

The miles just keep rolling,
as the people leave their way to say hello
I've heard this life is overrated,
but I hope that it gets better as we go
Oh, yeah, yeah

I'm here without you, baby,
but you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you, baby,
and I dream about you all the time
I'm here without you, baby,
but you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight, girl,
there's only you and me

Everything I know,
and anywhere I go,
it gets hard,
but it won't take away my love
And when the last one falls,
when it's all said and done,
it gets hard,
but it won't take away my love
Oh, oh-oh-oh

I'm here without you, baby,
but you're still on my lonely mind
I think about you, baby,
and I dream about you all the time
I'm here without you, baby,
but you're still with me in my dreams
And tonight, girl,
there's only you and me,
yeah,
oh yeah,
oh, oh-oh-oh,
oh oh:)

Reminds me of when I was in the Guard:

Citizen Soldier by 3 Doors Down


Beyond the boundaries of your city's lights,
Stand the heroes waiting for your cries.
So many times you did not bring this on yourself,
When that moment finally comes,
I'll be there to help.

On that day when you need your brothers and sisters to care,
I'll be right here.
Citizen soldiers holding the light for the ones that we guide
from the dark of despair.
Standing on guard for the ones that we sheltered,
We'll always be ready because we will always be there.

When there are people crying in the streets,
When they're starving for a meal to eat,
When they simply need a place to make their beds,
Right here underneath my wing,
You can rest your head.

On that day when you need your brothers and sisters to care,
I'll be right here!
Citizen soldiers holding the light for the ones that we guide from
the dark of despair.
Standing on guard for the ones that we sheltered,
We'll always be ready because we will always be there...

There... there... there...

Hope and pray that you'll never need me,
But rest assured I will not let you down.
I'll walk beside you but you may not see me,
The strongest among you may not wear a crown.

On that day when you need your brothers and sisters to care,
I'll be right here!
On that day when you don't have the strength for the burden you bear,
I'll be right here!
Citizen soldiers holding the light for the ones that we guide
from the dark of despair.
(Citizen soldiers)
Standing on guard for the ones that we sheltered,
We'll always be ready because we will always be there

When the day finally comes that I'm able to walk down the aisle with The One, these are the songs I want played at our wedding:"So Far Away" by Staind (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TEmk5EEaU_s)

This is my life,
it's not what it was before
All these feelings I've shared
And these are my dreams
that I've never lived before
Somebody shake me 'cause I,
I must be sleeping

Now that we're here, it's so far away,
all the struggle we thought was in vain
And all the mistakes one life contained,
they all finally start to go away
Now that we're here, it's so far away,
and I feel like I can face the day
And I can forgive, and I'm not ashamed
to be the person that I am today

These are my words
that I've never said before
I think I'm doing okay
And this is the smile
that I've never shown before
Somebody shake me 'cause I,
I must be sleeping

Now that we're here, it's so far away,
all the struggle we thought was in vain
All the mistakes one life contained,
they all finally start to go away
Now that we're here, it's so far away,
and I feel like I can face the day
And I can forgive, and I'm not ashamed
to be the person that I am today

I'm so afraid of waking,
please don't shake me
Afraid of waking,
please don't shake me

Now that we're here, it's so far away,
all the struggle we thought was in vain
And all the mistakes one life contained,
they all finally start to go away
Now that we're here, it's so far away,
and I feel like I can face the day
And I can forgive, and I'm not ashamed
to be the person that I am today"Tangled Up in You" by Staind (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b-sLSNKK89Q)

You're my world,
the shelter from the rain
You're the pills
that take away my pain
You're the light
that helps me find my way
You're the words
when I have nothing to say

And in this world,
where nothing else is true
Here I am,
still tangled up in you
I'm still tangled up in you
Still tangled up in you

You're the fire
that warms me when I'm cold
You're the hand
I have to hold as I grow old
You're the shore
when I am lost at sea
You're the only thing
that I like about me

And in this world,
where nothing else is true
Here I am,
still tangled up in you
I'm still tangled up in you

How long has it been
since this storyline began?
And I hope it never ends
and goes like this forever!

In this world,
where nothing else is true
Here I am,
still tangled up in you!
Tangled up in you
I'm still tangled up in you
Still tangled up in you

This song, I discovered, oh, must be nearly 20 years ago. Listening to it has always been an uplifting experience for me. It's also one of the very few songs by Joe Satriani that actually HAS lyrics. Since he's such a masterful guitar player, most of his songs are instrumental, focusing solely on his playing. This song is one of the rare exceptions to that rule, and is one of his best as a result."I Believe" by Joe Satriani (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lIiZION79-w)

I've been out walking for hours
I've got something on my mind
How did we get here?
Where are we going?
And why is life so hard?

I read the stories, see the photographs
World's in a crazy space
I've got to hold on to my dreams;
there's just no other place
There's just no other place

I believe
we can change anything
I believe
we can rise above it
I believe
there's a reason for everything
I believe
in my dream

I've seen the shadows of the living
I've seen them turn and walk away
And I keep searching for the right words
to send these thoughts away

There's a picture I like to look at,
a picture of a beautiful face
And I see something in her eyes,
sends me to a better place
Sends me to a better place

I believe
we can change anything
I believe
we can rise above it
I believe
there's a reason for everything
I believe
in my dream

I believe
we can change anything
I believe
in my dream:cool:

Get The Fuck Out - Skid Row

Your jokes ain't funny and there's nothing you say
That I wanna hear
The sound of the door slamming your ass out
Is music to my ears

If I can't beat you then I'm gonna beat you
To a pulp
So can the TV rays and take my tonsil glaze
Right down your throat

You're standing too close what the fuck's with you?
You ain't my old lady and you ain't a tattoo
No need to whimper, no need to shout
This party's over, so get the fuck out
Get the fuck out!

Well I puke, I stink bitch give me a drink
Cuz I'm paying for the room
I ain't buying you breakfast
So keep your mouth busy and wrap your lips
All around my attitude

Take a walk with me with your triple double D's
And your 40-foot do
Why you walking funny? You must have spent some time
With the boys in the crew

You're standing too close what the fuck's with you?
You ain't my old lady and you ain't a tattoo
No need to whimper, no need to shout
This party's over, so get the fuck out
Get the fuck out!

The morning's coming and this is my bed
If I find you here when I wake up
The maid is gonna find me dead

You're standing too close what the fuck's with you?
You ain't my old lady and you ain't a tattoo
No need to whimper, no need to shout
This party's over, so get the fuck out
Get the fuck out!
Get the fuck out!
Get the fuck out!

Another one I might have to have played at my wedding, if I'm ever fortunate enough to walk down the aisle with The One..."The Man In Love With You" by George Strait (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5HHW3heYWrA)

I'm not the hero
who will always save the day
Don't always wear the white hat,
won't always know the way
I may not even be the dream
you wanted to come true
But I'll always be the man in love with you

I'm not the key
that opens every door
Don't have the power
to give you all you want and more
But when you're needing something special
you can hold onto
I'll always be the man in love with you

I never could work miracles
There may be others
who can do what I can't do
But no one else could be
as good as me
in loving you

So when the world won't turn
the way you wish it would
And the dreams you have don't come alive
as often as they should
Remember that there's someone there
whose heart is always true
I'll always be the man in love with you

Remember that there's someone there
whose heart is always true
Someone there to help you make it through
I'll always be the man in love with you

This is a song that I've been listening to rather heavily lately. It's taken on a special meaning for me in recent months..."Wide Awake" by Lacuna Coil (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JkOI7XNdBz8)

The rebel inside, a mind of my own
I haven't felt right since the moment that I gave up
I challenged my limits, I'm feeling I'm becoming limitless
I'll take it all in and inhale

I'm wide awake
Open my eyes and the sky's so blue
All of a sudden, I know that I treasure my life
I find myself wide awake, like you

The struggle within, now I understand
Freedom begins when you get out of the cage you built
It looks like I'm crazy, but I'm not the only one
To believe in myself, believe in myself,
I won't be coming undone

'Cause I feel like I'm wide awake
Open my eyes and the sky's so blue
All of a sudden, I know that I treasure my life
I find myself wide awake, like you

I'm wide awake
Open my eyes and the sky's so blue
All of a sudden, I know that I treasure my life
All of a sudden, I know that I treasure my life
like you:)

Happy Happy - Ke


What is so wrong with me?
I told you I don't need your scene
They all love you, want you, need you...when you're hated
Yes, yes, yes it's true I do have my doubts
Truth I don't know much about morality
Seems highly over-rated
All the things you say, it means nothing to me
All the games you play, they mean nothing to me
All I wanna be, is happy, happy, happy
All I wanna do is love you
What is this picture of me you seem to see?
You sold your soul so don't you dare judge me
Avoid emotions without question, try too hard to be too wise
In ignorance and self deception, deciding who do you despise
All the lies you tell, they mean nothing to me
All the hate you sell, it means nothing to me
All I wanna be, is happy, happy
All I wanna do is love you

Have A Nice Day - Bon Jovi This one and!

Why, you wanna tell me how to live my life?
Who, are you to tell me if it's black or white?
Mama, can you hear me? Try to understand.
Is innocence the difference between a boy and a man.
My daddy lived the lie, it's just the price that he paid.
Sacrificed his life, just slavin' away.

Ohhh, if there's one thing I hang onto,
That gets me through the night.
I ain't gonna do what I don't want to,
I'm gonna live my life.
Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
Standing on the ledge, I show the wind how to fly.
When the world gets in my face,
I say, Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day

Take a look around you; nothing's what it seems
We're living in the broken home of hopes and dreams,
Let me be the first to shake a helping hand.
Anybody brave enough to take a stand,
I've knocked on every door, on every dead end street,
Looking for forgiveness,
what's left to believe?

Ohhh, if there's one thing I hang onto,
That gets me through the night.
I ain't gonna do what I don't want to,
I'm gonna live my life.
Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
Standing on the ledge, I show the wind how to fly.
When the world gets in my face,
I say, Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day.

[Guitar Solo]

Ohhh, if there's one thing I hang onto,
That gets me through the night.
I ain't gonna do what I don't want to,
I'm gonna live my life.
Shining like a diamond, rolling with the dice,
Standing on the ledge, I show the wind how to fly.
When the world gets in my face,
I say, Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day.

When The world keeps trying, to drag me down,
I've gotta raise my hands, gonna stand my ground.
Well I say, Have A Nice Day.
Have A Nice Day
Have A Nice Day


We Weren't Born To Follow - Bon Jovi(hey I luvs him)

This one goes out to the man who mines for miracles
This one goes out to the ones in need
This one goes out to the sinner and the cynical
This ain't about no apology

This road was paved by the hopeless and the hungry
This road was paved by the winds of change
Walking beside the guilty and the innocent
How will you raise your hand when they call your name?

Yeah, yeah, yeah

We weren't born to follow
Come on and get up off your knees
When life is a bitter pill to swallow
You gotta hold on to what you believe

Believe that the sun will shine tomorrow
And that your saints and sinners bleed
We weren't born to follow
You gotta stand up for what you believe

Let me hear you say yeah, yeah, yeah, oh yeah

This one's about anyone who does it differently
This one's about the one who cusses and spits
This ain't about our livin' in a fantasy
This ain't about givin' up or givin' in

Yeah, yeah, yeah

We weren't born to follow
Come on and get up off your knees
When life is a bitter pill to swallow
You gotta hold on to what you believe

Believe that the sun will shine tomorrow
And that your saints and sinners bleed
We weren't born to follow
You gotta stand up for what you believe

Let me hear you say yeah, yeah, yeah, oh yeah
Let me hear you say yeah, yeah, yeah, oh yeah

We weren't born to follow
Come on and get up off your knees
When life is a bitter pill to swallow
You gotta hold on to what you believe

Believe that the sun will shine tomorrow
And that your saints and sinners bleed
We weren't born to follow
You gotta stand up for what you believe

Let me hear you say yeah, yeah, yeah, oh yeah
Let me hear you say yeah, yeah, yeah, oh yeah

We weren't born to follow, oh yeah
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh yeah)
We weren't born to follow, oh yeah
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, oh yeah)

^ I love We Weren't Born to Follow! I'm not a huge Bon Jovi fan but it's definitely in my top 3.

Blind Melon - Change

I don't feel the sun's coming out today
It's staying in, it's gonna find another way
As I sit here in this misery,
I don't think I'll ever see the sun from here.

And oh, as I fade away,
They'll all look at me and say,
Hey, look at him, I'll never live that way
But that's okay, they're just afraid to change

When you feel life ain't worth living, you've got to stand up,
Take a look around you then look way up to the sky
And when your deepest thoughts are broken,
Keep on dreaming boy,
When you stop dreaming it's time to die.

And as we all play parts of tomorrow,
Some ways we'll work and other ways we'll play,
But I know we can't all stay here forever
So I want to write my words on the face of today,
And then they'll paint it.

And oh, as I fade away
They'll all look at me and say,
Hey, look at him, and where he is these days

When life is hard, you have to change.
