Bridge Over Troubled Water ~ Simon & Garfunkel

When you're weary, feeling small

When tears are in your eyes, I'll dry them all...all...

I'm on your side, oh, when times get rough

And friends just can't be found

Like a bridge over troubled water

I will lay me down

Like a bridge over troubled water

I will lay me down

When you're down and out

When you're on the street

When evening falls so hard

I will comfort you (ooh)

I'll take your part, oh, when darkness comes

And pain is all around

Like a bridge over troubled water

I will lay me down

Like a bridge over troubled water

I will lay me down

Sail on silver girl

Sail on by

Your time has come to shine

All your dreams are on their way

See how they shine

Oh, if you need a friend

I'm sailing right behind

Like a bridge over troubled water

I will ease your mind

Like a bridge over troubled water

I will ease your mind

My friend and me, we're always there for each other, we can always talk about anything, it's one of those strange and rather unique friendships between a man and a woman without being lovers. This song is for her :bow:

Pulp: Common People

She came from Greece she had a thirst for knowledge,

she studied sculpture at Saint Martin's College,

that's where I,

caught her eye.

She told me that her Dad was loaded,

I said "In that case I'll have a rum and coca-cola."

She said "Fine."

and in thirty seconds time she said,

"I want to live like common people,

I want to do whatever common people do,

I want to sleep with common people,

I want to sleep with common people,

like you."

Well what else could I do -

I said "I'll see what I can do."

I took her to a supermarket,

I don't know why but I had to start it somewhere,

so it started there.

I said pretend you've got no money,

she just laughed and said,

"Oh you're so funny."

I said "yeah?

Well I can't see anyone else smiling in here.

Are you sure...

you want to live like common people,

you want to see whatever common people see,

you want to sleep with common people,

you want to sleep with common people,

like me."

But she didn't understand,

she just smiled and held my hand.

Rent a flat above a shop,

cut your hair and get a job.

Smoke some fags and play some pool,

pretend you never went to school.

But still you'll never get it right,

'cause when you're laid in bed at night,

watching roaches climb the wall,

if you call your Dad he could stop it all.

You'll never live like common people,

you'll never do what common people do,

you'll never fail like common people,

you'll never watch your life slide out of view,

and dance and drink and screw,

because there's nothing else to do.

Sing along with the common people,

sing along and it might just get you through,

laugh along with the common people,

laugh along even though they're laughing at you,

and the stupid things that you do.

Because you think that poor is cool.

Like a dog lying in a corner

they will bite you and never warn you

Look out

they'll tear your insides out

'cos everybody hates a tourist

especially one who thinks

it's all such a laugh

yeah and the chip stain's grease

will come out in the bath

You will never understand

how it feels to live your life

with no meaning or control

and with nowhere left to go

You are amazed that they exist

and they burn so bright

whilst you can only wonder why

Rent a flat above a shop

Cut your hair and get a job

Smoke some fags and play some pool

Pretend you never went to school

But still you'll never get it right

'cause when you're laid in bed at night

watching roaches climb the wall

if you called your dad he could stop it all

yeah

You'll never live like common people

You'll never do whatever common people do

You'll never fail like common people

You'll never watch your life slide out of view

and then dance and drink and screw

'because there's nothing else to do

I want to live with common people like you.....

New York City~They Might Be Giants

You called me last night on the telephone

And I was glad to hear from you 'cause I was all alone

You said, "It's snowing, it's snowing. God, I hate this weather."

Now I walk through blizzards just to get us back together

We met in the springtime at a rock-and-roll show

It was on the Bowery when it was time to go

We kissed on the subway in the middle of the night

I held your hand, you held mine, it was the best night of my life.

'Cause everyone's your friend in New York City

And everything looks beautiful when you're young and pretty

The streets are paved with diamonds and there's just so much to see

But the best thing about New York City is you and me

Statue of Liberty, Staten Island Ferry, Co-op City, Katz's and Tiffany's

Central Park, Brooklyn Bridge, The Empire State where Dylan lived

Coney Island and Times Square, Rockefeller Center

Wish I was there

You wrote me a letter just the other day

Said, "Springtime is coming soon so why don't you come to stay."

I packed my stuff, got on the bus, I can't believe it's true

I'm three days from New York City and I'm three days from you

'Cause everyone's my friend in New York City

And everything looks beautiful when you're young and pretty

The streets are paved with diamonds and there's just so much to see

But the best thing about New York City is you and me

'Cause everyone's my friend in New York City

And everything looks beautiful when you're young and pretty

The streets are paved with diamonds and there's just so much to see

But the best thing about New York City is you and me.

The Punk and the Godfather -- The Who

PUNK:

You declared you would be three inches taller

You only became what we made you

Thought you were chasing a destiny calling

You only earned what we gave you

You fell and cried as our people were starving,

Now you know that we blame you

You tried to walk on the trail we were carving,

Now you know that we framed you

GODFATHER:

I'm the guy in the sky

Flying high, flashing eyes

No surprise I told lies

I'm the punk in the gutter

I'm the new president

But I grew and I bent

Don't you know? Don't it show?

I'm the punk with the stutter

My my my my my mmmm my my my

GGGGG-g-g-g-g generation

PUNK:

We tried to speak between lines of oration

You could only repeat what we told you

Your axe belongs to a dying nation,

They don't know that we own you

You're watching movies trying to find the feelers,

You only see what we show you

We're the slaves of the phony leaders

Breathe the air we have blown you

GODFATHER:

I'm the guy in the sky

Flying high, flashing eyes

No surprise I told lies

I'm the punk in the gutter

I'm the new president

But I grew and I bent

Don't you know? Don't it show?

I'm the punk with the stutter

My my my my my mmmm my my my

GGGGG-g-g-g-g generation

GODFATHER:

I have to be careful not to preach

I can't pretend that I can teach,

And yet I've lived your future out

By pounding stages like a clown

And on the dance floor broken glass,

The bloody faces slowly pass,

The broken seats in empty rows,

It all belongs to me you know

PUNK:

Okay

You declared you would be three inches taller

You only became what we made you

Thought you were chasing a destiny calling

You only earned what we gave you

You fell and cried as our people were starving,

Now you know that we blame you

You tried to walk on the trail we were carving,

Now you know that we framed you

GODFATHER:

I'm the guy in the sky

Flying high, flashing eyes

No surprise I told lies

I'm the punk in the gutter

Oh yeah

I'm the new president

But I grew and I bent

Don't you know? Don't it show?

I'm the punk with the stutter

My my my my my mmmm my my my

GGGGG-g-g-g-g generation

:bow: :rockon: :rockon: :bow:

The Format~She Doesn't get It:

All the girls pose the same for pictures

All the boys got the same girls' hair

I am bored 'cause I feel much older

Look at me, as if I've got a reason to stare

But you talk so loud

that it calms me down

You're crying "Let's make a toast"

She says she's leaving on a Sunday

That leaves me one more night

Can I take you home?

I know it's wrong

but I know your type

She says she's leaving on a Sunday

and I don't care

I need to know where to turn

I tried it once

It never caught on

I was the only one who got burned

I've read every word you're said

From a poster of a cat

Four books look across your sofa

I thought your coffee table

was more clever than that

It gets worse once we get to her room

as she stops and sings

"doot do do doot do do doot do"

I claim "new religion" is my song

She doesn't get it

It's all before she was born

And you lock your doors

Like I've been here before

I feel like I've seen a ghost

Suddenly between sheets and eyelids I am reminded why I don't do this

I fall in love far too quickly

I never want her to forget me

When you're gone

Will you call?

Will you write?

Mother Love - Queen

I don't want to sleep with you

I don't need the passion too

I don't want a stormy affair

To make me feel my life is heading somewhere

All I want is the comfort and care

Just to know that my woman gives me sweet -

Mother Love

I've walked too long in this lonely lane

I've had enough of this same old game

I'm a man of the world and they say that I'm strong

But my heart is heavy, and my hope is gone

Out in the city, in the cold world outside

I don't want pity, just a safe place to hide

Mama please, let me back inside

I don't want to make no waves

But you can give me all the love that I crave

I can't take it if you see me cry

I long for peace before I die

All I want is to know that you're there

You're gonna give me all your sweet -

Mother Love, uh huh

Mother love

My body's aching, but I can't sleep

My dreams are all the company I keep

Got such a feeling as the sun goes down

I'm coming home to my sweet -

Mother Love

Mother Love

Mother Love

This was the last song Freddie Mercury recorded. He recorded some of the tracks in September 1991, but he didn't have the opportunity to complete it. Mercury told Brian May he'd come back and work on it some more when he felt better. Unfortunately he never got the chance. The final verse was written and sung by Brian May a couple of years after Mercury died in November 1991.

Spanway Hits~Flake Music

Use a pen to reflect

what you've got left to protect

on the old dusty shelves

in your childhood room

you've got a lot to go on:

posters of Simon LeBon

all might help you decide

In case you ever try

They just want you to come by

The florist in foam

A rigid folk’s home in time that I might cry

Cut all these ties you’ll see

How far apart we are

No two of us sees or acts alike

Wasting time and pretend

You’ve got the words to defend

well every bias you’ve learned while being human

Remember that we all knew

Riding big wheels was cool

We’d give it all to be that dumb again

These are all bonds and ties

In spite of what they are

No two of us tells or thinks the same

Cut all these ties you’ll see

How far apart we are

Those are our bonds and ties

In spite of what they are

Jolene~Dolly Parton

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

I'm begging of you, please don't take my man

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

Please don't take him just because you can

Your beauty is beyond compare

With flaming locks of auburn hair

With ivory skin and eyes of emerald green

Your smile is like a breath of spring

Your voice is soft like summer rain

And I cannot compete with you, Jolene

He talks about you in his sleep

And there's nothing I can do to keep

From crying when he calls your name, Jolene

And I can easily understand

How you could easily take my man

But you don't know what he means to me, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

I'm begging of you, please don't take my man

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

Please don't take him just because you can

You could have your choice of men

But I could never love again

He's the only one for me, Jolene

I had to have this talk with you

My happiness depends on you

And whatever you decide to do, Jolene

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

I'm begging of you, please don't take my man

Jolene, Jolene, Jolene, Jolene

Please don't take him even though you can

Jolene (Jolene)

The Maine~If I Only Had The Heart

I fell asleep last night,

Where I woke up too late.

And everything I loved.

I began to hate.

I know I sound repetitive,

Cause I'm repeating myself,

And I'm competitive,

I want you all by yourself.

And that alone is just the problem,

I've got these woes,

And I just can't solve them.

If I could gather up the nerve,

I'd put my feelings into words,

And if I weren't so young, or stupid, or restless,

I might be able to just soon forget this.

Just forget this.

Please just forget me,

When I'm out all alone on the east coast.

And please don't forgive me,

When you're home all alone and you need me most.

Oh if I only had the heart,

To find out exactly who you are,

You know I'd try now.

But it's just fine,

No you can't save me,

It's no fault but mine,

Please just blame me.

If I could gather up the nerve,

I'd put my feelings into words,

And if I weren't so young, or stupid, or restless,

I might be able to just soon forget this.

Just forget this.

If I only had the heart, the nerve, the words, you'd think by now I would have learned

Just think of Goldfinger:

Brian Song -- Monty Python

Brian

The babe they called 'Brian'

He grew grew grew and grew

Grew up to be-- grew up to be

A boy called 'Brian'

A boy called 'Brian'

He had arms and legs and hands and feet

This boy whose name was 'Brian'

And he grew grew grew and grew

Grew up to be

Yes, he grew up to be

A teenager called 'Brian'

A teenager called 'Brian'

And his face became spotty

Yes, his face became spotty

And his voice dropped down low

And things started to grow

On young Brian and show

He was certainly no

No girl named 'Brian',

Not a girl named 'Brian'

And he started to shave

And have one off the wrist

And want to see girls

And go out and get pissed

A man called 'Brian'

This man called 'Brian'

The man they called 'Brian'

This man called 'Brian'!

:bow:
