Random Lyrics

Recommended Posts

I had a friend named a ramblin' Bob, He used to steal, gamble and rob He thought he was the smartest guy in town

But I found out last Monday

That Bob got locked up Sunday

They've got him in the jailhouse way down town

He's in the jailhouse now he's in the jailhouse now

I told him once or twice quit playin' cards and shootin' dice

He's in the jailhouse now

Bob liked to play his poker, pinochle with Stan Yoker

But shooting dice was his favorite game

But he got throwed in jail, with nobody to go his bail

The judge done said that he refused a fine

He's in the jailhouse now he's in the jailhouse now

Well I told him once or twice quit playin' cards and a shootin' dice

He's in the jailhouse now

I went out last Tuesday met a girl named Susie,

I said I was the swellest guy around.

Well we started to spendin' my money

Then she started to callin' me honey

We took in every cabaret in town

We're in the jailhouse now

We're in the jailhouse now

I told the judge right to his face

I don't like to see this place

We're in the jailhouse now

[big]From a Buick 6[/big] -- Bob Dylan

I got this graveyard woman, you know she keeps my kid

But my soulful mama, you know she keeps me hid

She's a junkyard angel and she always gives me bread

Well, if I go down dyin', you know she bound to put a blanket on my bed.

Well, when the pipeline gets broken and I'm lost on the river bridge

I'm cracked up on the highway and on the water's edge

She comes down the thruway ready to sew me up with thread

Well, if I go down dyin', you know she bound to put a blanket on my bed.

Well, she don't make me nervous, she don't talk too much

She walks like Bo Diddley and she don't need no crutch

She keeps this four-ten all loaded with lead

Well, if I go down dyin', you know she bound to put a blanket on my bed.

Well, you know I need a steam shovel mama to keep away the dead

I need a dump truck mama to unload my head

She brings me everything and more, and just like I said

Well, if I go down dyin', you know she bound to put a blanket on my bed.

The Medication is wearing off ~ Eels

See this watch she gave me?

well, it still ticks away

the days I'm claiming back for me

The medication's wearing off

gonna hurt not a little, a lot

keep on tickin' you're not lickin' me

Step on a crack break your mother's heart

Red light, Green light, Black

Suicide e-mail do not delete

plug it back in the jack

Start to be what they want you to be

and you see yourself as they see you

Sunrise at the corner of

Sunset and Alvarado

I think what the hell do I do now

watch the day disintegrate

so I can stay up late and wait

See this watch she gave me?

well, it still ticks away...

:bow: :puppyeyes: :bow:

Where the wild roses grow - Nick Cave & the bad Seeds with Kylie Minogue

They call me The Wild Rose

But my name was Elisa Day

Why they call me it I do not know

For my name was Elisa Day

From the first day I saw her I knew she was the one

She stared in my eyes and smiled

For her lips were the colour of the roses

That grew down the river, all bloody and wild

When he knocked on my door and entered the room

My trembling subsided in his sure embrace

He would be my first man, and with a careful hand

He wiped at the tears that ran down my face

They call me The Wild Rose

But my name was Elisa Day

Why they call me it I do not know

For my name was Elisa Day

On the second day I brought her a flower

She was more beautiful than any woman I'd seen

I said, "Do you know where the wild roses grow

So sweet and scarlet and free?"

On the second day he came with a single red rose

Said: "Will you give me your loss and your sorrow"

I nodded my head, as I lay on the bed

He said, "If I show you the roses, will you follow?"

They call me The Wild Rose

But my name was Elisa Day

Why they call me it I do not know

For my name was Elisa Day

On the third day he took me to the river

He showed me the roses and we kissed

And the last thing I heard was a muttered word

As he knelt (stood smiling) above me with a rock in his fist

On the last day I took her where the wild roses grow

And she lay on the bank, the wind light as a thief

And I kissed her goodbye, said, "All beauty must die"

And lent down and planted a rose between her teeth

They call me The Wild Rose

But my name was Elisa Day

Why they call me it I do not know

For my name was Elisa Day

Such a sad ending :puppyeyes:

Hail, Hail ~ Pearl Jam

Ah, is there room for both of us

Both of us apart?

Are we bound out of obligation?

Is that all we've got?

I get the words and then I get to thinkin'

I don't wanna think, I wanna feel

How do I feel?

How do I?

If you're the only one will I never be enough?

Hail, Hail the lucky ones

- I refer to those in love

Oh, how I'd love ya till the day I die... and beyond

Are we goin' to the same place?

If so can I come?

It's egg rollin', thick and heavy

All, the past we carry

Oh, I could be new

You under-estimate me

If you're the only one will I never be enough?

Hail, Hail the lucky ones

- I refer to those in love

I sometimes realize...I could only be as good as you'll let me

Are you woman enough to be my man?

Bandaged hand in hand.

Black lining,

On the run, in a race that can't be won, yeah

all Hail the lucky ones

I refer to those in love, yeah

If you're my only one

So good, you, only one

I want to be your one

Enough, you won, your one, your one

French anyone? :shades:

Aïcha - Khaled

Aïcha

Comme si j'n'existais pas

Elle est passee a cote de moi

Sans un regard, Reine de Sabbat

J'ai dit, Aicha, prends, tout est pour toi

Voici, les perles, les bijoux

Aussi, l'or autour de ton cou

Les fruits, bien murs au gout de miel

Ma vie, Aicha si tu m'aimes

J'irai a ton souffle nous mene

Dans les pays d'ivoire et d'ebene

J'effacerai tes larmes, tes peines

Rien n'est trop beau pour une si belle

Oooh ! Aicha, Aicha, ecoute-moi

Aicha, Aicha, t'en vas pas

Aicha, Aicha, regarde-moi

Aicha, Aicha, reponds-moi

Je dirai les mots des poemes

Je jouerai les musiques du ciel

Je prendrai les rayons du soleil

Pour eclairer tes yeux de reine

Oooh ! Aicha, Aicha, ecoute-moi

Aicha, Aicha, t'en vas pas

Elle a dit, garde tes tresors

Moi, je vaux mieux que tout ca

Des barreaux forts, des barreaux meme en or

Je veux les memes droits que toi

Et du respect pour chaque jour

Moi je ne veux que de l'amour

Aaaah !

Comme si j'n'existais pas

Elle est passee a cote de moi

Sans un regard, Reine de Sabbat

J'ai dit, Aicha, prends, tout est pour toi
