New Attitude ~ Patti LaBelle

I got a new attitude

I'm wearing a new dress (New), new hair (New)

Brand new ideas, as a matter of fact I've changed for good

It must have been the cool night, new moon, new slight change

???More than to figure??? but I feel like I should, yes

Somehow the wires uncrossed, the tables were turned

Never knew I had such a lesson to learn

I'm feelin' good from my head to my shoes

Know where I'm goin' and I know what to do

I tidied up my point of view

I got a new attitude

Dancing In The Dark - Bruce Springsteen

I get up in the evening, and I aint got nothing to say

I come home in the morning, I go to bed feeling the same way

I aint nothing but tired, man Im just tired and bored with myself

Hey there baby, I could use just a little help

You cant start a fire, you cant start a fire without a spark

This guns for hire even if were just dancing in the dark

Message keeps getting clearer, radios on and Im moving round the place

I check myself out in the mirror I wanna change my clothes my hair my face

Man I aint getting nowhere just sitting in a dump like this

Theres something happening somewhere baby I just know that there is

You cant start a fire...

You sit around getting older theres a joke here somewhere and its on me

Ill shake this world off my shoulders come baby this laughs on me

Stay on the streets of this town and theyll be carving you up alright

They say you got to stay hungry hey baby Im just about starving tonight

Im dying for some action Im sick of sitting round here trying to write

This book

I need a love reaction come on now baby give me just one look

You cant start a fire..

Puttin on the Ritz - Taco

If you're blue and you don't know where to go to

why don't you go where fashion sits,

Puttin' on the ritz.

Different types who wear a day coat, pants with stripes

and cutaway coat, perfect fits,

Puttin' on the ritz.

Dressed up like a million dollar trouper

Trying hard to look like Gary Cooper (super duper)

Come let's mix where Rockefellers walk with sticks

or "umberellas" in their mitts,

Puttin' on the ritz.

Have you seen the well-to-do up and down Park Avenue

On that famous thoroughfare with their noses in the air

High hats and Arrow collars white spats and lots of dollars

Spending every dime for a wonderful time

If you're blue and you don't know where to go to

why don't you go where fashion sits,

Puttin' on the ritz.

Puttin' on the ritz.

Puttin' on the ritz.

Probably not what you're after, but it is kind of about a change of identity, and it is bloody marvellous, so I thought I'd share it with you: "This Is Not A Love Song"

This one is definitely about an individual changing both her name and identity, but again, probably isn't what you're after: "Babooshka"

Ears peeled for a couple of examples of shocking grammar.
