"The Day My Baby Gave Me A Surprise" - Devo

Got a surprise from my honey

Got a message from my girl

When she picked up her pen from beside her bed

And wrote me a scribbled note

Said she'd be comin' back to see me

She would be visiting real soon

Gonna get up from her lone white bed

And leave this cold white room

wah-oooo-oo-oo-oo-oooo-ooooh

wah-oooo-oo-oo-oo-oooo-ooooh

wah-oooo-oo-oo-oo-oooo-ooh

We would once more live together

Go out on a lovin' spree

Just like before the accident

My baby would look at me

I saw her sweet face tremblin'

As she tried to open her eyes

I jumped with the joy of a grateful little boy

The day my baby gave me a surprise

wah-oooo-oo-oo-oo-oooo-ooooh

wah-oooo-oo-oo-oo-oooo-ooooh

wah-oooo-oo-oo-oo-oooo-ooh

Wah-ooo...etc.etc.

Hey kids, plug into the faithless

Maybe they're blinded

But Bennie makes them ageless

We shall survive, let us take ourselves along

Where we fight our parents out in the streets

To find who's right and who's wrong

"Take The Skinheads Bowling" - Camper Van Beethoven

(also covered by The Manic Street Preachers)

Every day, I wake up and pray to Jah

And he increases the number of clocks by exactly one

Everybody's comin' home for lunch these days

Last night there were skinheads on my lawn

Take the skinheads bowling

Take them bowling

Take the skinheads bowling

Take them bowling

Some people say that bowling alleys got big lanes

Some people say that bowling alleys all look the same

There's not a line that goes here that rhymes with anything

I has a dream last night, but I forget what it was

I had a dream last night about you, my friend

I had a dream--I wanted to sleep next to plastic

I had a dream--I wanted to lick your knees

I had a dream--it was about nothing

Adam & The Ants - Jolly Roger

In days of old, when ships were bold

Just like the men who sailed them

and if they showed us disrespect

we'd tie them up and flail them

often men of low degree

and often men of steel

who'd make you walk the plank alone

or haul you 'round the keel

hoist the Jolly Roger!

hoist the Jolly Roger!

hoist the Jolly Roger!

it's your money that we want

and your money we shall have!

of all the pirates on the seas

the worst of them was Blackbeard

so damnable a fiend from hell

he was the one they most feared

any man who sailed with him

was taking quite a chance

he'd hang them from the gallows

just to see if they could dance (ha! ha!)

hoist the Jolly Roger, etc, etc.

Wondering out loud as the bandage pulls away,

was I, was I only limping, was I really lame?

Oh here, come over here,

between the windmill and the grain,

between the sundial and the chain,

between the traitor and her pain,

once again, once again,

love calls you by your name.

"Love calls you by your name" - Leonard Cohen

"Paradox" by The Church :bow: :bow: :bow:

You are a paradox to me, a senseless maze

I run around, I'm looking for you all of my days

The more that you want it, the more that you need it

The less that it does

Run out it's rough, too much is enough

And that's what it was

I cannot bear to share you, we can't be alone

You make me drift up and float, and fall like a stone

The more that I see you, the more that I miss you

The less that I care

I know I should try to kiss you goodbye, but

You're never there

I've got a nickname for you, I call you weakness

I get a little strength out too, or is it meekness

The more that you want it, the more that you need it

The less that it does

Run out it's rough, too much is enough

And that's what it was

You are a paradox to me, a contradiction

You're a predicament for me, and a prediction

Word up: "contradiction"
