Smile Favorite Song Lyrics: Light Side Edition!

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! )

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!

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 attempts to send us a final message, which is this:
Quote:
"So Long and Thanks For All the Fish"

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



Bob Seger- The Fire Inside

(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)

The Pineapple Song~ Good Size

Kissy Kissy-Smile. I could listen to it a dozen times

I'm a girl, you're a boy
We're too old to play with toys
Won't you tell me what's your name?
You could be my brand new game
You begin and roll the dice
I would smile and break the ice
Tell me how could I resist when you're my favorite kiss

Kissy kissy makes me happy
Honey honey sweet as candy
Kissy kissy take my hand and come along with me
Kissy kissy makes me happy
Honey honey sweet as candy
Kissy kissy love is grand with you my sugar bee

See the moon and see the sun, shining down on everyone
They know how in love we are, I heard them tell it to a star
There's no mountain, there's no sea that keep your love away from me
No matter what the distance is, you're still my favorite kiss

Kissy kissy makes me happy
Honey honey sweet as candy
Kissy kissy take my hand and come along with me
Kissy kissy makes me happy
Honey honey sweet as candy
Kissy kissy love is grand with you my sugar bee

La la la, tell me what your secret is
La la la, why won't you let me know
La la la, nothing makes me feel like this
La la la, cause you're my favorite kiss

Kissy kissy makes me happy
Honey honey sweet as candy
Kissy kissy take my hand and come along with me
Kissy kissy makes me happy
Honey honey sweet as candy
Kissy kissy love is grand with you my sugar bee

Kissy kissy makes me happy
Honey honey sweet as candy
Kissy kissy take my hand and come along with me
Kissy kissy makes me happy
Honey honey sweet as candy
Kissy kissy love is grand with you my sugar bee

La la la, tell me what your secret is
La la la, why won't you let me know
La la la, nothing makes me feel like this
La la la, cause you're my favorite kiss

Coconut, Harry Nilsson

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
She put the lime in the coconut, she drank them both up
She put the lime in the coconut, she called the doctor, woke him up,
And said, "Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take,
I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?
I say, Doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take,
I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?"
"Now let me get this straight ",
Put the lime in the coconut, you drank them both up
Put the lime in the coconut, you drank them both up
Put the lime in the coconut, you drank them both up

I say, Doctor, to relieve this belly ache?
I say, Doctor, doctor, ain't there nothin' I can take,
I say, Doctor, dooooctor, to relieve this belly ache?'
Put the lime in the coconut, drink them both together,
Put the lime in the coconut, then you feel better,
Put the lime in the coconut, drink them both up,
Put the lime in the coconut, and call me in the morning
Wouh wouh wouh wouh wouh

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

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
