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...

"Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life" ~ Monty Python

You say you never compromise

With the mystery tramp but now you realize

He's not selling any alibis

As you stare into the vacuum of his eyes

And say do you want to make a deal

If I listened long enough to you

I’d find a way to believe that it’s all true

Knowing that you lied straight-faced while I cried

Still I look to find a reason to believe

Your popcorn pie, I declare, it's sweet and nice

I Like your popcorn pie

[Chorus: The Game + JT]

Compton to Fillmore here we go again

In the Bay, our chains hang, L.A. they can't bang

Compton to Fillmore here we go again

In L.A. they havin problems, the Bay we pop collars

Compton to Fillmore here we go again

In the Bay we pop hollows, L.A. they pop hollows

Compton to Fillmore here we go again

In the Bay we pop bottles, L.A. they pop bottles

I wonder how, I wonder why

Yesterday you told me 'bout the blue blue sky

and all that I can see,

is just a yellow lemon tree

I'm turning my head up and down

I'm turning, turning, turning, turning, turning

around and all that I can see,

is just another lemon tree

Lemon Tree ~ Fools Garden

Then you took me to St. Louis later on (down the river).

A freighter said she's been here but she's gone, boy, she's gone.

I found her trail in Memphis, but she just walked up the block.

She raised a few eyebrows and then she went on down alone.

There is a house in New Orleans

And they call it the rising sun

And God, I know I'm one

Sha la la la la la la...

I was down at the New Amsterdam staring at this yellow-haired girl

Mr. Jones strikes up a conversation with this black-haired flamenco dancer

You know She dances while his father plays guitar

She's suddenly beautiful

We all want something beautiful

I wish I was beautiful

Oh the Spanish-American

War had its day

And the Civil War too

Was soon laid away

And the names of the heroes

I's made to memorize

With guns in their hands

And God on their side.

A worried man with a worried mind

No one in front of me and nothing behind

There's a woman on my lap and she's drinking champagne

Got white skin, got assassin's eyes

I'm looking up into the sapphire tinted skies

I'm well dressed, waiting on the last train

Things Have Changed - Bob Dylan

We're only making plans for Nigel

We only want what's best for him

We're only making plans for Nigel

Nigel just needs this helping hand

And if young Nigel says he's happy

He must be happy

He must be happy in his work

We're only making plans for Nigel

He has his future in a British steel

We're only making plans for Nigel

Nigel's whole future is as good as sealed

And if young Nigel says he's happy

He must be happy

He must be happy in his work

Don't have to humble yourself to me,

Baby we can choose you know we ain't no amoeba

Normally I try to refrain from using german songs, but this one just fits well...

Du sagst, Punk ist jeden Tag ultra-besoffen zu sein.

Du sagst, Punk ist dreckig, feige und gemein.

Du sagst, Punk ist Selbstverstümmelung, Gewalt und Hass.

Das klingt nach 'ner ganzen Menge Spaß.
