Jackson C. Frank - Blues Run The Game (1965)


From the album Jackson C. Frank in 1965



Catch a boat to england, baby,
Maybe to spain,
Wherever i have gone,
Wherever i've been and gone,
Wherever i have gone
The blues are all the same.

Send out for whisky, baby,
Send out for gin,
Me and room service, honey,
Me and room service, babe,
Me and room service
Well, we're living a life of sin

When i'm not drinking, baby,
You are on my mind,
When i'm not sleeping, honey,
When i ain't sleeping, mama,
When i'm not sleeping
Well you know you'll find me crying.

Try another city, baby,
Another town,
Wherever i have gone,
Wherever i've been and gone,
Wherever i have gone
The blues come following down.

Living is a gamble, baby,
Loving's much the same,
Wherever i have played,
Wherever i throw them dice,
Wherever i have played
The blues have run the game.

Maybe tomorrow, honey,
Someplace down the line,
I'll wake up older,
So much older, mama,
Wake up older
And i'll just stop all my trying.

Catch a boat to england, baby,
Maybe to spain,
Wherever i have gone,
Wherever i've been and gone,
Wherever i have gone
The blues are all the same.

Madness - House Of Fun (1982)


From a single in 1982



Good morning miss
Can I help you son?
Sixteen today
And up for fun
I'm a big boy now
Or so they say
So if you'll serve
I'll be on my way

Box of balloons
With the feather-light touch
Pack of party-poppers
That pop in the night
A toothbrush and hairspray
Plastic grin
Miss Clay on all corners
Has just walked in

Welcome to the House of Fun
Now I've come of age
Welcome to the House of Fun
Welcome to the lion's den
Temptation's on his way
Welcome to the House of

N-n-n-n-n-n-no no miss
You misunderstood
Sixteen big boy
Full pint in my manhood
I'm up to date
And the date's today
So if you'll serve
I'll be on my way

Welcome to the House of Fun
Now I've come of age
Welcome to the lion's den
Temptation's on his way
Welcome to the House of (Fun)

I'm sorry son
But we don't stock
Party gimmicks
In this shop
Try the House of Fun
It's quicker if you run
This is a chemist's
Not a joke shop!

Party hats
Simple enough clear
Comprehende savvy understand
Do you hear?
A pack of party hats
With the coloured tips
Too late!
Gorgon heard gossip
Well hello Joe, hello Miss Clay
Many happy returns from the day

Welcome to the House of Fun
Now I've come of age
Welcome to the House of Fun
Welcome to the lion's den
Temptation's on his way
Welcome to the House of Fun

Welcome to the House of Fun...

Vinicius, Toquinho & Maria Creuza - Que Maravilha (1970)


From the album En La Fusa con Maria Creuza y Toquinho in 1970



Lá fora está chovendo.
Mas assim mesmo
Eu vou correndo
Só pra ver o meu amor.

Ela vem toda de branco.
Toda molhada e despenteada,
Que maravilha,
Que coisa linda
Que é o meu amor.

Por entre bancários, automóveis,
Ruas e avenidas
Milhões de buzinas
Tocando sem cessar.

Ela vem chegando de branco,
Meiga, linda e muito tímida.
Com a chuva molhando seu corpo
Que eu vou abraçar.

E a gente no meio da rua,
Do mundo, no meio da chuva,
A girar,
Que maravilha,
Que maravilha,
Que maravilha.

Nico - The Fairest Of The Seasons (1967)


From the album Chelsea Girl in 1967



Now that it's time
Now that the hour hand has landed at the end
Now that it's real
Now that the dreams have given all they had to lend
I want to know do I stay or do I go
And maybe try another time
And do I really have a hand in my forgetting ?

Now that I've tried
Now that I've finally found that this is not the way,
Now that I turn
Now that I feel it's time to spend the night away
I want to know do I stay or do I go
And maybe finally split the rhyme
And do I really understand the undernetting ?

Yes and the morning has me
Looking in your eyes
And seeing mine warning me
To read the signs carefully.

Now that it's light
Now that the candle's falling smaller in my mind
Now that it's here
Now that I'm almost not so very far behind
I want to know do I stay or do I go
And maybe follow another sign
And do I really have a song that I can ride on ?

Now that I can
Now that it's easy, ever easy all around.
Now that I'm here
Now that I'm falling to the sunlights and a song
I want to know do I stay or do I go
And do I have to do just one
And can I choose again if I should lose the reason ?

Yes, and the morning
Has me looking in your eyes
And seeing mine warning me
To read the signs more carefully.

Now that I smile,
Now that I'm laughing even deeper inside.
Now that I see,
Now that I finally found the one thing I denied
It's now I know do I stay or do I go
And it is finally I decide
That I'll be leaving
In the fairest of the seasons.

Los Planetas - ¿Que Puedo Hacer? (1994)


From the album Super 8 in 1994



Qué puedo hacer?
si después de tanto tiempo no te dejo de querer
y si después de todo el tiempo que ha pasado,
si nos vemos no sé lo que hacer.

He pasado por tu casa veinte veces
y siempre voy al Amador por si apareces,
pero nunca más, pero nunca, nunca más,
estoy harto de esperar, esto es más de lo que puedo soportar.

Y una vez más he intentado convencerte pero todo sigue igual
que todos estos años.
Y una vez más de que me sirve intentarlo,
ni tan siquiera me vas a escuchar,
estoy equivocado.

He pasado por tu casa veinte veces
y siempre voy al Amador por si apareces
pero nunca más, pero nunca, nunca más,
estoy harto de esperar.
Estoy harto de intentarlo, estoy cansado de seguir igual,
tiene que cambiar.

No voy a entrar a este sitio, para no encontrarme contigo.

He pasado por tu casa veinte veces
y siempre voy al Amador por si apareces,
pero nunca más, pero nunca, nunca más,
estoy harto de esperar.

From a single in 1951



I'm gonna get up in the mornin',
I believe I'll dust my broom (2x)
Girlfriend, the black man you been lovin',

Telephone every town I know (2x)
If I can't find her in West Helena,
She must be in East Monroe, I know

I don't want no woman,
Wants every downtown man she meet (2x)
She's a no good doney,
They shouldn't 'low her on the street

I believe, I believe I'll go back home (2x)
You can mistreat me here, babe,
But you can't when I go home

And I'm gettin' up in the morning,
I believe I'll dust my broom (2x)
Girlfriend, the black man that you been lovin',
Girlfriend, can get my room

I'm gon' call up Chiney,
She is my good girl over there (2x)
If I can't find her on Philippine's Island,
She must be in Ethiopia somewhere

From the album Lovely in 1988



Here you go way too fast
Don't slow down you're gonna crash
You should watch - watch your stay here
Don't look out you're gonna break your neck
So shut , shut your mouth
Cause I'm not listening anyhow
I've had enough, enough of you
Enough to last a life time through
So what do you want of me?
Got no words of sympathy and if i go around with you
You know that i'll get messed up too with you

Na na na na na
Na na na na na

Here you go way to fast
Don't slow down you're gonna crash
You don't know what's been going down
You've been running all over town

So shut , shut your mouth
Cause i'm not listening anyhow
I've had enough, enough of you
Enough to last a life time through
So what do you want of me?
Got no cure for misery and if I go around with you
You know that i'll get messed up too with you

With you
Na na na na na
Slow down you're gonna crash
Na na na na na
Slow down you're gonna crash
Na na na na na
Slow down you're gonna crash

Patti Smith - Gloria- In Excelsis Deo-Gloria (1975)


From the album Horses in 1975



Jesus died for somebodys sins but not mine
Meltin in a pot of thieves
Wild card up my sleeve
Thick heart of stone
My sins my own
They belong to me, me

People say beware!
But I dont care
The words are just
Rules and regulations to me, me

I-i walk in a room, you know I look so proud
Im movin in this here atmosphere, well, anythings allowed
And I go to this here party and I just get bored
Until I look out the window, see a sweet young thing
Humpin on the parking meter, leanin on the parking meter
Oh, she looks so good, oh, she looks so fine
And I got this crazy feeling and then Im gonna ah-ah make her mine
Ooh Ill put my spell on her

Here she comes
Walkin down the street
Here she comes
Comin through my door
Here she comes
Crawlin up my stair
Here she comes
Waltzin through the hall
In a pretty red dress
And oh, she looks so good, oh, she looks so fine
And I got this crazy feeling that Im gonna ah-ah make her mine

And then I hear this knockin on my door
Hear this knockin on my door
And I look up into the big tower clock
And say, oh my God heres midnight!
And my baby is walkin through the door
Leanin on my couch she whispers to me and I take the big plunge
And oh, she was so good and oh, she was so fine
And Im gonna tell the world that I just ah-ah made her mine

And I said darling, tell me your name, she told me her name
She whispered to me, she told me her name
And her name is, and her name is, and her name is, and her name is g-l-o-r-i-a
G-l-o-r-i-a gloria g-l-o-r-i-a gloria
G-l-o-r-i-a gloria g-l-o-r-i-a gloria

I was at the stadium
There were twenty thousand girls called their names out to me
Marie and ruth but to tell you the truth
I didnt hear them I didnt see
I let my eyes rise to the big tower clock
And I heard those bells chimin in my heart
Going ding dong ding dong ding dong ding dong.
Ding dong ding dong ding dong ding dong
Counting the time, then you came to my room
And you whispered to me and we took the big plunge
And oh. you were so good, oh, you were so fine
And I gotta tell the world that I make her mine make her mine
Make her mine make her mine make her mine make her mine

G-l-o-r-i-a gloria g-l-o-r-i-a gloria g-l-o-r-i-a gloria,
G-l-o-r-i-a gloria

And the tower bells chime, ding dong they chime
Theyre singing, jesus died for somebodys sins but not mine.

Gloria g-l-o-r-i-a gloria g-l-o-r-i-a gloria g-l-o-r-i-a,
Gloria g-l-o-r-i-a, g-l-o-r-i-a gloria g-l-o-r-i-a gloria
G-l-o-r-i-a gloria g-l-o-r-i-a gloria g-l-o-r-i-a gloria,
G-l-o-r-i-a gloria g-l-o-r-i-a gloria g-l-o-r-i-a gloria,
G-l-o-r-i-a gloria g-l-o-r-i-a gloria g-l-o-r-i-a gloria .

The Supremes - You Can't Hurry Love (1968)


From the album The Supremes A' Go-Go in 1968



I need love, love
To ease my mind
I need to find, find someone to call mine
But mama said

You can't hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
It's a game of give and take

You can't hurry love
No, you just have to wait
You got to trust, give it time
No matter how long it takes

But how many heartaches
Must I stand before I find a love
To let me live again
Right now the only thing
That keeps me hangin' on
When I feel my strength, yeah
It's almost gone
I remember mama said:

You can't hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
It's a game of give and take

How long must I wait
How much more can I take
Before loneliness will cause my heart
Heart to break?

No I can't bear to live my life alone
I grow impatient for a love to call my own
But when I feel that I, I can't go on
These precious words keeps me hangin' on
I remember mama said:

You can't hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
It's a game of give and take

You can't hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said trust, give it time
No matter how long it takes

Gotta wait!

No, love, love, don't come easy
But I keep on waiting
Anticipating for that soft voice
To talk to me at night
For some tender arms
To hold me tight
I keep waiting
I keep on waiting
But it ain't easy
It ain't easy
But mama said:

You can't hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said to trust, give it time
No matter how long it takes

You can't hurry love
No, you just have to wait
She said love don't come easy
It's a game of give and take

From the album Somethin' Else in 1958

Foo Fighters - Best of you (2005)


From the album In Your Honor in 2005



I've got another confession to make!
I'm your fool...
Everyone's got their chains to break!
Holding you...

Were you born to resist, or be abused
Is someone getting
the best, the best, the best, the best of you.
Is someone getting
the best, the best, the best, the best of you.
Are you gone and on to someone new

I needed somewhere to hang my head
Without your noose..
You gave me something that I didn't have
But had no use...
I was too weak to give in, too strong to lose
My heart is under arrest again
But I break loose
My head is giving me life or death
But I can't choose
I swear I'll never give in
and I refuse.

Is someone getting
the best, the best, the best, the best of you.
Is someone getting
the best, the best, the best, the best of you.

Has someone taken your faith - it's real
The pain you feel
Your trust - you must confess
Is someone getting
the best, the best, the best, the best of you.
Is someone getting
the best, the best, the best, the best of you.
(Ahhhhhhhh!!!)

(ohhhhhhhh oh oh... Ohhhhh oh oh!
ohhhhhhhh oh oh... OHHHHHHH!!!)

Has someone taken you faith - it's real!
The pain you feel!
The Life! The Love! You die to heal
The hope, that stops, the broken hearts!
Your trust, you must confess!

Is someone getting
the best, the best, the best, the best of you.
Is someone getting
the best, the best, the best, the best of you.

I've got another confession my friend
I'm no fool
Im getting tired of startin' again
somewhere new
Wouldn't wanna resist, or be abused...
I swear I'll never give in
and I refuse...

Is someone getting
the best, the best, the best, the best of you.
Is someone getting
the best, the best, the best, the best of you.
Has someone taken you faith - it's real!
The pain you feel! Your trust, You must confess
Is someone getting
the best, the best, the best, the best of you.
(Ahhhhhhhohhhhhhhhhhhhh!)

Nirvana - Territorial Pissings (1991)


From the album nevermind in 1991



Come on people now smile on your brother everybody get together, try TO love one another right now

When I was an alien
Cultures weren't opinions

Gotta find a way ,find a way, when I'm there
Gotta find a way ,a better way, a better way

Never met a wise man
If so it's a woman

Gotta find a way , find a way, when I'm there
Gotta find a way ,a better way, a better way (x2)

Just because you're paranoid
Don’t mean they're not after you

Gotta find a way ,find a way, when I'm there
Gotta find a way ,a better way, a better way (x2)

Ron Sexsmith - Wishing Wells (2004)


From the album Retriever in 2004



Wishing wells
Are fine in fairy tales
But they've got no business here
Where evil's very real
And children are known
To just disappear

Magic spells
Still hold no currency
Where people are lining up
To sell their dignity
When reality's a show
They'll crawl through mud

I fear sometimes
We ain't got a hope in hell
I've half a mind to hang the next fool
To wish me well
To wish me well

It comes as no surprise
All that rises to the top
Before our very eyes
With each generation expectation drops

I feel sometimes
We ain't got a hope in hell
I've a half a mind to hang the next fool
To wish me well
To wish me well

Tell me when
When will the truth prevail
To clear away all
The smug and smirking juveniles
And save us from all
The blood thirsty thugs

I fear sometimes
We ain't got a hope in hell
I've half a mind to hang the next fool
To wish me well

Janie's got a gun
Her whole world's come undone
From looking straight at the sun
What did her daddy do?
What did he put you through?

They say when Janie was arrested
They found him underneath a train
But man, he had it comin'
Now that Janie's got a gun
She ain't never gonna be the same

Janie's got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Her dog day's just begun
Now everybody is on the run
Tell her now it's untrue
What did her daddy do?

He jacked the little bitty baby
The man has got to be insane
They say the spell that he was under
The lightin' and the thunder
Knew that someone had to stop the pain

Run away, run away from the pain
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah,

Run away, run away from the pain
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Run away, run away, run, run away

Janie's got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Her dog day's just begun
Now everybody is on the run
What did her daddy do
It's Janie's last I.O.U.

She had to take him down easy
And put a bullet in his brain
She said 'cause nobody believes me
The man was such a sleaze
He ain't never gonna be the same

Run away, run away from the pain
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Run away, run away from the pain
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Run away, run away, run, run away

Janie's got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Janie's got a gun
Everybody is on the run

Janie's got a gun
Her dog day's just begun
Now everybody's on the run (Honey, honey what's your problem)
'Cause Janie's got a gun (Tell me it ain't right)
Janie's got a gun (Was it daddy's cradle robbin')
Her dog day's just begun (That made you scream at night)
Now everybody's on the run
Janie's got a gun

Love - Maybe The People Would Be The Times Or Between Clark And Hilldale (1967)


From the album Forever Changes in 1967



What is happening and how have you been
Gotta go but I'll see you again
And oh, the music is so loud
And then I fade into the...

Crowds of people standing everywhere
'Cross the street I'm at this laugh affair
And here they always play my songs
And me, I wonder if it's...

Wrong or right they come here just the same
Telling everyone about their games
And if you think it obsolete
Then you go back across the street
Yeah, street, hey hey

When I leave now don't you weep for me
I'll be back, just save a seat for me
But if you just can't make the room
Look up and see me on the...

Moon's a common scene around my town
Here where everyone is painted brown
And if we feel that's not the way
Let's go paint everybody gray
Yeah, gray, yeah

Tous les garcons et les filles de mon age
Se promenent dans la rue deux par deux
Tous les garcons et les filles de mon age
Savent bien ce que c'est d'etre heureux
Et les yeux dans les yeux
Et la main dans la main
Ils s'en vont amoureux
Sans peur du lendemain
Oui mais moi je vais seule
Dans la rue l'ame en peine
Oui mais moi je vais seule
Car personne ne m'aime
Mes jours comme mes nuits
Sont en tous points pareils
Sans joies et pleins d'ennuis
Personne ne murmure je t'aime a mon oreille

Tous les garcons et les filles de mon age
Font ensemble des projets d'avenir
Tous les garcons et les filles de mon age
Savent bien ce que aimer veut dire
Et les yeux dans les yeux
Et la main dans la main
Ils s'en vont amoureux
Sans peur du lendemain
Oui mais moi je vais seule
Dans la rue l'ame en peine
Oui mais moi je vais seule
Car personne ne m'aime
Mes jours comme mes nuits
Sont en tous points pareils
Sans joies et pleins d'ennuis
Oh quand pour moi brillera le soleil

Comme les garcons et les filles de mon age
J'connaitrais bientot ce qu'est l'amour
Comme les garcons et les filles de mon age
Je me demande quand viendra le jour
Ou les yeux dans les yeux
Ou la main dans la main
J'aurais le coeur heureux
Sans peur du lendemain
Le jour ou je n'aurais plus du tout
L'ame en peine
Le jour ou moi aussi
J'aurais quelqu'un qui m'aime

Robert Palmer - Addicted to Love (1985)


From the album Riptide in 1985



Your lights are on, but youre not home
Your mind is not your own
Your heart sweats, your body shakes
Another kiss is what it takes

You cant sleep, you cant eat
Theres no doubt, youre in deep
Your throat is tight, you cant breathe
Another kiss is all you need

Whoa, you like to think that youre immune to the stuff, oh
Yeah

Its closer to the truth to say you cant get enough, you
Know youre

Gonna have to face it, youre addicted to love

You see the signs, but you cant read
Youre runnin at a different speed
You heart beats in double time
Another kiss and youll be mine, a one track mind

You cant be saved
Oblivion is all you crave
If theres some left for you
You dont mind if you do

Whoa, you like to think that youre immune to the stuff, oh
Yeah

Its closer to the truth to say you cant get enough, you
Know youre

Gonna have to face it, youre addicted to love

Might as well face it, youre addicted to love
Might as well face it, youre addicted to love
Might as well face it, youre addicted to love
Might as well face it, youre addicted to love
Might as well face it, youre addicted to love

Guitar solo (once around)

Your lights are on, but youre not home
Your will is not your own
Youre heart sweats and teeth grind
Another kiss and youll be mine

Whoa, you like to think that youre immune to the stuff, oh
Yeah

Its closer to the truth to say you cant get enough, you
Know youre

Gonna have to face it, youre addicted to love

Might as well face it, youre addicted to love
Might as well face it, youre addicted to love
Might as well face it, youre addicted to love
Might as well face it, youre addicted to love
Might as well face it, youre addicted to love

Nine Inch Nails - Hurt (1995)


From the album The Downward Spiral in 1995



I hurt myself today
To see if I still feel
I focus on the pain
The only thing that's real
The needle tears a hole
The old familiar sting
Try to kill it all away
But I remember everything

What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end
You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt

I wear this crown of shit
Upon my liar's chair
Full of broken thoughts
I cannot repair
Beneath the stains of time
The feelings disappear
You are someone else
I am still right here

What have I become?
My sweetest friend
Everyone I know
Goes away in the end

You could have it all
My empire of dirt
I will let you down
I will make you hurt
If I could start again
A million miles away
I would keep myself
I would find a way

Queens of the Stone Age - In My Head (2005)


From the album Lullabies to Paralyze in 2005



It's the cruelest joke to play,
I'm so high I run in place.
Only a line we separate,
so................

Chorus:
Keep on playin' our favorite song,
turn it up, while you're gone.
It's all I've got when you're in my head,
and you're in my head, so I need it.

You're the only thing I've got,
that I can't seem to get enough.
We collide for one embrace,
so..............

(Chorus X2)

(Instrumental break)


Oh...........oh.

oh radio, and wait forever........

(Chorus)

Oh...........oh.
Oh...........oh.
Oh...........oh.
Oh...........oh.
Oh...........oh.
Oh...........oh.
Oh...........oh.
Oh...........oh.


(Chorus)

I need it....
I need it....
I need it now.

The Blues Magoos - Tobacco Road (1966)


From the album Psychedelic Lollipop in 1966



I was born in a bunk
Mama died and my daddy got drunk
Left me here to die or grow
In the middle of Tobacco Road

I grew up in a dusty shack
And all I had was a'hangin' on my back
Only you know how I loathe
This place called Tobacco Road

But it's home
The only life I've ever known
Only you know how I loathe
Tobacco Road

I'm gonna leave and get a job
With the help and the grace from above
Save some money, get rich I know
Bring it back to Tobacco Road

Bring dynamite and a crane
Blow itup, start all over again
Build a town, be proud to show
Give the name Tobacco Road

Cause it's home
The only life I've ever known
I despise you 'cos your filthy
But I love ya, 'cause it's home

ZZ Top - La Grange (1973)


From the album Tres Hombres in 1973



Rumour spreadin a-round in that texas town
bout that shack outside la grange
And you know what Im talkin about.
Just let me know if you wanna go
To that home out on the range.
They gotta lotta nice girls.

Have mercy.
A haw, haw, haw, haw, a haw.
A haw, haw, haw.

Well, I hear its fine if you got the time
And the ten to get yourself in.
A hmm, hmm.
And I hear its tight most evry night,
But now I might be mistaken.
Hmm, hmm, hmm, hmm.

Have mercy.

Billy Bragg - A New England (1983)


From the album Life's a Riot with Spy Vs Spy in 1983



I was twenty one years when I wrote this song
Im twenty two now, but I wont be for long
People ask when will you grow up to be a man
But all the girls I loved at school
Are already pushing prams

I loved you then as I love you still
Tho I put you on a pedestal,
They put you on the pill
I dont feel bad about letting you go
I just feel sad about letting you know

I dont want to change the world
Im not looking for a new england
Im just looking for another girl
I dont want to change the world
Im not looking for a new england
Im just looking for another girl

I loved the words you wrote to me
But that was bloody yesterday
I cant survive on what you send
Every time you need a friend

I saw two shooting stars last night
I wished on them but they were only satellites
Is it wrong to wish on space hardware
I wish, I wish, I wish youd care

I dont want to change the world
Im not looking for a new england
Im just looking for another girl

Led Zeppelin - Your Time Is Gonna Come (1969)


From the album Led Zeppelin in 1969



Lyin', cheatin', hurtin, that's all you seem to do
Messin' around, every guy in town
Puttin' me down for thinkin' of someone new
Always the same, playin' your game
Drive me insane, trouble's gonna come to you
One of these days, and it won't be long
You'll look for me, but, baby, I'll be gone

This is all I gotta say to ya, woman
Your time is gonna come, your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come, your time is gonna come

Made up my mind, break you this time
Won't be so kind, it's my turn to cry
Do what you want, I won't take the brunt
It's fadin' away, can't feel you anymore
Don't care what you say 'cause I'm goin' away to stay
Gonna make you pay for that great big hole in my heart
People talkin' all around
Watch out, woman, no longer is the joke gonna be on my heart

You been bad to me, woman, but it's comin' back home to you
Your time is gonna come, your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come, your time is gonna come
Your time is gonna come, 'bye, 'bye-'bye, baby
Your time is gonna come, right now, right now
Your time is gonna come, believe me, my girl
Your time is gonna come, oh, oh, oh, oh-oh
Your time is gonna come, nah-nah, nah-nah, nah-nah
Your time is gonna come, I'm not likely to wait for ya
Your time is gonna come, goodbye, baby
Your time

The Cars - You Might Think (1984)


From the album Heartbeat City in 1984



Oh well uh you might think Im crazy
To hang around with you
Or maybe you think Im lucky
To have somethin to do
But I think that youre wild
Inside me is some child

You might think Im foolish
Or maybe its untrue
(you might think Im crazy)
You might think Im crazy
(all I want is you)
But all I want is you

You might think its hysterical
But I know when youre weak
You think youre in the movies
And everythings so deep
But I think that youre wild
When you flash that fragile smile

You might think its foolish
What ya put me through
(you might think Im crazy)
You might think Im crazy
(all I want is you)
All I want is you

And it was hard so hard to take
Theres no escape without a scrape
But you kept it going till the sun fell down
You kept it going

Oh well uh you might think Im delirious
The way I run you down
But somewhere sometimes
When youre curious
Ill be back around
Oh I think that youre wild
And so-o uniquely styled

You might think its foolish
This chancy rendezvous
(you might think Im crazy )
You might think Im crazy
(all I want is you)
All I want is you-a-oo
All I want is you
(all I want is you)
All I want is you

Blur - Girls & Boys (1994)


From the album Parklife in 1994



Street's like a jungle
So call the police
Following the herd
Down to Greece
On holiday
Love in the 90's
Is paranoid
On sunny beaches
Take your chances looking for

[Chorus]
GIRLS WHO ARE BOYS
WHO LIKE BOYS TO BE GIRLS
WHO DO BOYS LIKE THEY'RE GIRLS
WHO DO GIRLS LIKE THEY'RE BOYS
ALWAYS SHOULD BE SOMEONE YOU REALLY LOVE

Avoiding all work
Because there's none available
Like battery thinkers
Count your thoughts on 1 2 3 4 5 fingers
Nothing is wasted
Only reproduced
Get nasty blisters
Du bist sehr schon
But we haven't been introduced

T-Bone Walker - Street Walking Woman (1950)


From a single in 1950



I've got a street walkin' woman, she stays tall an
twisted all the time
I've got a street walkin' woman, she stays tall an
twisted all the time
She goes to bed with a fifth of whiskey an she wakes
up with a jug a-wine
She leaves home early in the mo'nin', then she don't
come back until the sun's goin' down
She leaves home in the mo'nin', an' she don't come
back until the sun is goin' down
She's always got her whiskey up to her mouth, and her
face full of ugly frown
I work hard everyday, try to make ends meet
I work hard everyday an try to make ends meet
All that woman wants to do, is keep her big feet in
the street
I love my street walkin' woman, she walks the avenue
up and down
I love my street walkin' woman, she walks the avenue
up and down
Sometime I wish she would start ta walkin', an' keep
on walkin' outta town

Green Day - Longview (1994)


From the album Dookie in 1994



Sit around and watch the tube,but nothing's on
Change the channels for an hour or two
Twiddle my thumbs just for a bit
I'm sick of all the same old shit
In a house with unlocked doors
And I'm fucking lazy

Bite my lip and close my eyes
Take me away to paradise
I'm so damn bored I'm going BLIND!!!
And I smell like shit

Peel me off this velcro seat and get me moving
I sure as hell can't do it by myself
I'm feeling like a DOG IN HEAT
Barred indoors from the summer street
I locked the door to MY OWN CELL
And I lost the key

Bite my lip and close my eyes
Take me away to paradise
I'm so damn bored I'm going BLIND!!!
And I smell like shit

I GOT NO MOTIVATION
WHERE IS MY MOTIVATION
NO TIME FOR THE MOTIVATION
SMOKING MY INSPIRATION

Sit around and watch the phone,but no one's calling
Call me pathetic,call me WHAT YOU WILL
My mother says to get a job
But she don't like the one SHE'S got
When masturbation's lost its fun
You're fucking lazy

Bite my lip and close my eyes
Take me away to paradise
I'm so damn BORED
I'm going blind
And loneliness has to suffice
Bite my lip and close my eyes
I was slipping away to paradise
Some say,"Quit or I'll go BLIND."
But it's just a myth

Iron Maiden - Run To The Hills (1982)


From the album The Number of the Beast, Live After Death in 1982



White man came across the sea
He brought us pain and misery
He killed our tribes, he killed our creed
He took our game for his own need

We fought him hard we fought him well
Out on the plains we gave him hell
But many came too much for cree
Oh will we ever be set free?

Riding through dustclouds and barren wastes
Galloping hard on the plains
Chasing the redskins back to their holes
Fighting them at their own game
Murder for freedom a stab in the back
Women and children and cowards attack

Run to the hills run for your lives
Run to the hills run for your lives

Soldier blue on the barren wastes
Hunting and killing their game
Raping the women and wasting the men
The only good indians are tame
Selling them whisky and taking their gold
Enslaving the young and destroying the old

Run to the hills run for your lives
(repeat to end)

The Easybeats - Friday on My Mind (1966)


From a single in 1966



Monday morning feels so bad,
Ev'rybody seems to nag me
Coming tuesday I feel better,
Even my old man looks good,
Wednesday just don't go,
Thursday goes too slow,
I've got Friday on my mind

Chorus

Gonna have fun in the city,
Be with my girl she's so pretty,
She looks fine tonight,
She is out of sight to me,
Tonight....I spend my bread,
Tonight...I lose my head,
Tonight...I got to get tonight
Monday I have Friday on my mind.

Do the five day drag once more,
Know of nothing else that bugs me
More than working for the rich man,
Hey I'll change that scene one day,
Today I might be mad,
Tomorrow I'll be glad,
I've got Friday on my mind,

(Repeat Chorus)

Dayna Kurtz - Everybody knows (2004)


From the album Beautiful Yesterday in 2004



Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
Thats how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain lied
Everybody got this broken feeling
Like their father or their dog just died

Everybody talking to their pockets
Everybody wants a box of chocolates
And a long stem rose
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that you love me baby
Everybody knows that you really do
Everybody knows that youve been faithful
Ah give or take a night or two
Everybody knows youve been discreet
But there were so many people you just had to meet
Without your clothes
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
Thats how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
Thats how it goes
Everybody knows

And everybody knows that its now or never
Everybody knows that its me or you
And everybody knows that you live forever
Ah when youve done a line or two
Everybody knows the deal is rotten
Old black joes still pickin cotton
For your ribbons and bows
And everybody knows

And everybody knows that the plague is coming
Everybody knows that its moving fast
Everybody knows that the naked man and woman
Are just a shining artifact of the past
Everybody knows the scene is dead
But theres gonna be a meter on your bed
That will disclose
What everybody knows

And everybody knows that youre in trouble
Everybody knows what youve been through
From the bloody cross on top of calvary
To the beach of malibu
Everybody knows its coming apart
Take one last look at this sacred heart
Before it blows
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
Thats how it goes
Everybody knows

Oh everybody knows, everybody knows
Thats how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows

Talk Talk - It's My Life (1984)


From the album It's My Life in 1984



Funny how I find myself
in love with you
If I could buy my reasoning
I'd pay to lose

One half won't do

I've asked myself
How much do you
commit yourself?

It's my life
Don't you forget
It's my life
It never ends (It never ends)

Funny how I blind myself
I never knew
If I was sometimes played upon
Afraid to lose

I'd tell myself
what good you do
Convince myself

It's my life
Don't you forget
It's my life
It never ends (It never ends)

(Instrumental)

I've asked myself
How much do you
commit yourself?

It's my life
Don't you forget
Caught in the crowd
it never ends
It's my life
Don't you forget
Caught in the crowd
it never ends
It's my life
Don't you forget
Caught in the crowd
it never ends

Siouxsie & the Banshees - Honk Kong Garden (1978)


From the album Once Upon a Time: The Singles and The Scream (1978)



Harmful elements in the air
Symbols clashing everywhere
Reaps the fields of rice and reeds
While the population feeds
Junk floats on polluted water
An old custom to sell your daughter
Would you like number 23?
Leave your yens on the counter please
Hong kong garden

Tourists swarm to see your face
Confuscius has a puzzling grace
Disoriented you enter in
Unleashing scent of wild jasmine

Slanted eyes meet a new sunrise
A race of bodies small in size
Chicken chow mein and chop suey
Hong kong garden takeaway
Hong kong garden

Eddie Cochran - Summertime Blues (1958)


From a single in 1958



Well, I'm a'gonna raise a fuss,
An' I'm a'gonna raise a holler.
I've been working all summer
Just to try and earn a dollar.
Well I went to the boss
Said I had a date
My boss said "No dice, son, you gotta work late"

Sometimes I wonder what I'm a'gonna do
There ain't no cure for the summertime blues

Well my mom 'n' poppa told me
"Son you gotta earn some money,
If you want to use the car
To go riding next Sunday."

Well I didn't go to work
I told the boss I was sick
"Now you can't use the car
'cause you didn't work a lick."

Sometimes I wonder what I'm a'gonna do
Cause there ain't no cure for the summertime blues.

Gonna take two weeks
Gonna have a fine vacation
Gonna take my problems
To the United Nations

Well I went to my congressman
He said, quote: "I'd like to help you son,
But you're too young to vote."

Sometimes I wonder what I'm a'gonna do
Cause there ain't no cure for the summertime blues.

Conor Oberst - Sausalito (2008)


From the album Conor Oberst in 2008



hair blowing in the hot wind
time hanging from a clothes pin
there's no sorrow that the sun's not gonna help

smell the leather of your new car
drive through the desert after night fall
sleep on the shoulder keep the stars all to ourselves

the kinda love that makes my back hurt
wearing nothing but a t-shirt
she's turning over on a mattress made of air

i close my eyes i see a stair case
leading upwards into blank space
all of creation makes a sound too soft to hear

so I remain between her legs
sheltered from all my fears
while bikers glide by highway shrines
where pilgrims disappear

i know that trouble's been your good friend
keep you company on the weekends
keep you company even once your mind was made

said it's over and it's finished
now a headache is all you're left with
we're no different i got debts i'd like to pay

we should move to Sausalito
living's easy on a house boat
let the ocean rock us back and forth to sleep

in the morning with the sunrise
look in the water see the blue sky
as if heaven has been laid there at our feet

so we remain between these waves
sheltered for all our years
while bikers glide by highway shrines
where pilgrims disappear

where time takes icebergs
where fields burn westward
where pilgrims disappear

America - Sister Golden Hair (1975)


From the album Hearts in 1975



Well I tried to make it sunday, but I got so damn depressed
That I set my sights on monday and I got myself undressed
I aint ready for the altar but I do agree theres times
When a woman sure can be a friend of mine

Well, I keep on thinkin bout you, sister golden hair surprise
And I just cant live without you; cant you see it in my eyes?
I been one poor correspondent, and I been too, too hard to find
But it doesnt mean you aint been on my mind

Will you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?
Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?
Well I tried to fake it, I dont mind sayin, I just cant make it

Well, I keep on thinkin bout you, sister golden hair surprise
And I just cant live without you; cant you see it in my eyes?
Now I been one poor correspondent, and I been too, too hard to find
But it doesnt mean you aint been on my mind

Will you meet me in the middle, will you meet me in the air?
Will you love me just a little, just enough to show you care?
Well I tried to fake it, I dont mind sayin, I just cant make it

From the album A New Generation Of Blues in 1968



Im tore down, Im almost level with the ground.
Im tore down, Im almost level with the ground.
Well, I feel like this when my baby cant be found.

I went to the river to jump in.
My baby showed up and said, I will tell you when.

Well, Im tore down, Im almost level with the ground.
Well, I feel like this when my baby cant be found.

I love you babe with all my heart and soul;
Love like mine will never grow old.
Love you in the morning and in the evening too.
Every time you leave me I get mad with you.

Chorus

I love you baby with all my might;
Love like mine is out of sight.
Ill lie for you if you want me to.
I really dont believe that your love is true.

Chorus

Im tore down, Im almost level with the ground.
Well, Im tore down, Im almost level with the ground.
Well, I feel like this when my baby cant be found.
